  • Super Chevy Results – May 16th

    With the threat of an early evening storm blowing in, 14 Pro Mod teams showed up at the annual Super Chevy Show at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis for the next stop on the Texas Outlaw Pro Mod Association’s 2015 tour to try and beat the storm. A “storm” was brewing on the track and here’s what went down:

    #1 Gaylen Smith – 3.971 at 187 mph
    #2 Steve Wiley – 4.018 at 185 mph
    #3 Chad Sheffield – 4.023 at 186 mph
    #4 Bob Alexander – 4.044 at 186 mph
    #5 Perry Dunn – 4.071 at 171 mph
    #6 Jay Ligon – 4.160 at 174 mph
    #7 Marcus Landeros – 4.223 at 170 mph
    #8 Charles Letteer – 4.313 at 179 mph
    #9 Rick Cate – 4.403 at 167 mph
    #10 Greg Green – 4.436 at 162 mph
    #11 David Baldwin – 4.444 at 159 mph
    #12 James Satterwhite – 4.528 at 161 mph
    #13 Kevin Hargett – 4.571 at 152 mph
    #14 Chuck Poindexter – 4.907 at 143 mph

    First Round:

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.065 at 185 mph (.029 RT)
    Perry Dunn (RU) NT

    Perry did a burnout but was backed off the line for an oil leak. Bob cruised down the center of the lane on a competition bye for the win.

    Marcus Landeros (W) 4.248 at 169 mph (.011 RT)
    Steve Wiley (RU) 4.315 at 130 mph (.040 RT)

    Marcus gets the holeshot advantage but Wiley was making up ground until the blower belt flew off the car and all he could do was coast and watch Marcus take the win.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.965 at 189 mph (.149 RT)
    Charles Letteer (RU) 5.063 at 104 mph (.007 RT)

    Charles gets huge holeshot advantage but it was all over shortly after takeoff. Gaylen makes another consistent run for the win.

    Jay Ligon (W) 4.172 at 173 mph (.002 RT) **Best Reaction Time**
    Chad Sheffield (RU) 3.907 at 192 mph (-.266RT) **Low ET and Top MPH** Red Light

    Chad throws away the round win by leaving the starting line too soon and Jay gets a huge upset win.

    Semi Finals:

    Jay Ligon (W) 4.184 at 167 mph (.031 RT)
    Marcus Landeros (RU) 4.038 at 183 mph (-.003 RT) Red light

    Marcus leaves too soon giving the automatic win to Ligon. Both cars made great passes.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.969 at 188 mph (.076 RT)
    Bob Alexander (RU) 5.173 at 97 mph (-.332 RT) Red light

    Not sure if Bob lifted because he saw his red light or if he encountered traction problems. I was watching Gaylen cruise down his lane for the win.

    Finals:

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.974 at 189 mph (.342 RT)
    Jay Ligon (RU) NT

    Jay fired up in the staging lanes but killed the car and Gaylen was told he would be running a solo. I later found out that Jay had a blown burst panel and shut it off. Gaylen makes another consistent run for his competition bye run for the win.

    Congratulations to Gaylen Smith and Team TBH for their 2nd victory on the 2015 chase for the championship tour. Congrats also go out to Jay Ligon and crew for their runner up finish as well. By the semi-finals, the clouds had parted and there were blue skies all around proving Mother Nature is truly a drag racing fan.
