• October Final TOPMA Race Results from Texas Raceway

    October FINAL Results
    It all comes down to this night. Coming into this race, the top three cars are only separated by 17 points. Steve Wiley and the Texas Grim Reaper sitting on top with 416 points, then Bob Alexander with 403 and Gaylen Smith in the Texas Bounty Hunter was in 3rd with 399 points. Back to a Friday night, twelve teams showed up to finalize the top 8 in points and here’s how everything unfolded after two rounds of qualifying. Remember, bonus points are very critical at this point.

    #1 Bob Alexander – 3.979 at 184 mph **Best reaction time** (.002 RT)
    #2 Steve Wiley – 4.124 at 165 mph
    #3 Gaylen Smith – 4.170 at 137 mph
    #4 David Baldwin – 4.325 at 168 mph
    #5 Kevin Hargett – 4.378 at 179 mph
    #6 Doug Riesterer – 4.550 at 118 mph
    #7 James Satterwhite – 4.618 at 134 mph
    #8 Eddie Roach – 4.796 at 122 mph
    #9 Alfred Whiteside – 6.628 at 73 mph
    #10 Jay Ligon – 7.485 at 93 mph
    #11 Perry Dunn – No Time
    #12 Chuck Poindexter – No Time

    First Round:

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.005 at 183 mph (.054 RT)
    Eddie Roach (RU) 16.677 at 38 mph (.298 RT)

    Not sure what happened to Eddie but Bob had the “eye of the tiger”! He was focused on the prize!

    Steve Wiley (W) 3.899 at 195 mph (.007 RT) **Low ET and Top MPH**
    James Satterwhite (RU) 4.431 at 157 mph (.175 RT)

    Wiley left first and never looked back. He also had his game face on…

    Kevin Hargett (W) 4.285 at 189 mph (.743 RT)
    David Baldwin (RU) NT

    Baldwin encountered problems and didn’t make the run so Kevin gets a competition bye into the semi’s with a nice run!

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.952 at 189 mph (.150 RT)
    Doug Riesterer (RU) 4.084 at 159 mph (.087 RT)

    Neither car made great runs during qualifying but both seemed to have figured it out on this run with Gaylen taking the win.

    Semi-Finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) 3.998 at 185 mph (.076 RT)
    Kevin Hargett (RU) 4.309 at 176 mph (.129 RT)

    Bob still had his game face on and makes another stellar run landing him in the finals. Who will be his competition between Gaylen and Wiley? According to the stands, it would be Wiley….

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.967 at 183 mph (.029 RT)
    Steve Wiley (RU) 4.148 at 175 mph (.011 RT)

    According to the scoreboard, it was Gaylen Smith meeting up with Bob in the finals!

    Finals:

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.940 at 190 mph (.084 RT)
    Bob Alexander (RU) 8.671 at 59 mph (.056 RT)

    Bob was going for the win and had it stepped up a little too much and got crossed up shortly after launch and Gaylen streaked by for the win.

    At the beginning of the year, posted on our schedule, we implemented a 2 race waive rule which means ALL drivers have to drop their two worst races. After adding in bonus points for perfect attendance and waiving 2 races, Gaylen Smith and Team TBH came out on top for another championship, their 5th in a row and 7th overall since the inception of TOPMA. Congratulations to Team TBH and Gaylen Smith for the race win and the overall TOPMA championship. All the overnight parts earlier in the year paid off.

    Congratulations to Bob Alexander and the Striptec Team for the runner-up on the track and also for finishing #2 in the overall points.

    Congratulations also go out to Steve Wiley and the Texas Grim Reaper Team for winning the Texas Raceway championship.

    Congratulations to David Baldwin for winning the Nitrous Championship and James Satterwhite for the runner-up!

    Thanks to Cindi and Dave and the entire staff of Texas Raceway for a great track and support all year long.

  • Texas Raceway September Results

    Mother Nature was very kind to the Racing Family on Saturday, September 12. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. Thirteen ProMod teams showed up to do battle on Saturday. New member Chad Green from Midland came in early and was going to do a check-out pass on Friday night but unfortunately, he contacted the retaining wall and the damage was enough that he couldn’t compete on Saturday. Glad you are ok Chad. Here’s how everything unfolded. After first round of qualifying, James Satterwhite sat #1 with a personal best of 4.234 at 168 mph.
    #2 Gaylen Smith – 4.247 at 128 mph

    First Round:

    David Baldwin (W) 4.518 at 158 mph (.124 RT)
    EJ Hickl (RU) NT Broke blower belt (.035 RT)

    David gets the upset win on an off-paced run.

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.022 at 188 mph (.047 RT)

    Kevin gets away first but Satterwhite powers by for the win.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.890 at 189 mph (.048 RT) **Best ET**
    Steve Wiley (RU) 3.991 at 168 mph (.025 RT)

    I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out. During 2nd round qualifying, our car wouldn’t back up so we pulled the pan off the tranny and didn’t find anything wrong. We put it back together and decided to do a short burnout and hope the line lock held. It was a good race! Closest race of the night.

    Semi-finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.008 at 190 mph (.075 mph) **Top MPH**
    James Satterwhite (RU) 4.217 at 169 mph (.072 RT)

    Despite setting a new personal best for himself, Satterwhite couldn’t hold off Bob’s hard charging blower car in the other lane. Congrats on the personal bests!

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.912 at 188 mph (.114 RT)
    David Baldwin (RU) 6.754 at 68 mph (.141 RT)

    We’re going to the finals after having to do another short burnout!

    Finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) 3.992 at 183 mph (.017 RT)
    Gaylen Smith (RU) 4.565 at 113 mph (.190 RT)

    Bob cut a great light and streaks down the Smith Motorsports lane for the win. Looking good Bob, Congratulations to the entire Strip-Tec team for the win and also congrats to Gaylen Smith and Team TBH for the runner-up finish! Don’t miss the final race of the season on Friday, October 9, 2015.
