• Texas Raceway race Moved to Friday September 19, 2014

    Unfortunately, with an 80% chance of rain and several racers traveling from all over Texas, we have canceled the Pro Mod race at Texas Raceway . The track will still be open (weather permitting) but we have moved the race to next Friday night (9/19). Yes, I know this is on top of the motorplex but we have had to do this in years past and everything was fine.

  • Featured Image August Texas Raceway Results

    On a HOT August night, nine pro-mod teams showed up to play in the heat. After two rounds of qualifying here’s how everything unfolded.

    #1 Gaylen Smith – 4.070 at 175 mph
    #2 Bob Alexander – 4.118 at 181 mph
    #3 Steve Wiley – 4.186 at 172 mph
    #4 Rodney Parks – 4.328 at 164 mph
    #5 Doug Morales – 4.387 at 166 mph
    #6 Kevin Hargett – 4.444 at 174 mph
    #7 Eddie Roach – 4.563 at 144 mph
    #8 Charles Letteer – 4.565 at 130 mph
    #9 Chuck Poindexter – 4.634 at 154 mph

    First Round:

    Chuck Poindexter (W) 4.646 at 154 mph (.068 RT)
    Rodney Parks (RU) 4.654 at 131 mph (.070 RT)
    Chuck Poindexter gets the upset win who was filling in for Doug Morales who sheared off the converter bolts during 2nd round qualifying. This was a close race on paper and on the track. Both cars left together with Poindexter having a slight advantage and he takes the win.

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.216 at 139 mph (.068 RT)
    Eddie Roach (RU) 5.409 at 111 mph (.166 RT)

    Gaylen Smith (W) 4.040 at 177 mph (.369 RT) ** Low ET**
    Charles Letteer (RU) 4.399 at 150 mph (.273 RT)

    Steve Wiley (W) 4.121 at 184 mph (.114 RT) **Top MPH**
    Kevin Hargett (RU) 4.577 at 166 mph (.049 RT)

    Semi Finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.074 at 180 mph (.021 RT)
    Steve Wiley (RU) 4.154 at 180 mph (.026 RT)
    Another very close race on paper and on the track.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 4.070 at 158 mph (.141 RT)
    Chuck Poindexter (RU) 7.518 at 87 mph (-.017 RT) Red light start
    Chuck knew he red lit and lifted giving Gaylen the automatic win who was on a nice pass. Both Gaylen and Bob ran 4.07’s in the semi’s which was setting up for a nail biting side by side final round….

    Finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) (.486 RT)
    Gaylen Smith (RU) 7.518 at 87 mph (-.332 RT)
    Side by side it was not. Gaylen’s transbrake didn’t hold. As soon as he got on the two-step the car started creeping and I was the one biting my nails hoping the tree came on before the car rolled out of the beams. Alexander was having problems of his own in the Smith Motorsports lane. He accidentally hit the chutes button and his chutes deployed on the starting line so he shut it off for the win.

    Congratulations to Bob Alexander and the rest of the crew on your first TOPMA win! Congrats to Gaylen Smith and Team TBH as well for the runner-up finish.
