Texas OutLaw Pro Modified Association at Texas Raceway March Photos

After a very long, cold winter it was evident that every drag racer and fan had cabin fever because the TOPMA season opener at Texas Raceway had a big car count and an even bigger fan count. The weather was decent but some would think this was a Friday the 13th. There was a couple of oil downs including anti-freeze spills out of the test and tune lanes which led to several lengthy clean-ups and a couple of mishaps leading to contact with the wall on two occasions out of the Pro Mod lanes added to the clean-ups which pushed us up against father time. The Pro Mods completed two rounds of qualifying and had enough time to run a final round between #1 and #2 qualifiers. Here’s how qualifying ended up:

#1 Doug Riesterer – 4.150 at 183 mph (Low ET and Top MPH)
#2 Steve Wiley – 4.199 at 157 mph
#3 Brandon Lewis – 4.363 at 151 mph
#4 Doug Morales – 4.371 at 167 mph
#5 Rodney Parks – 4.581 at 139 mph
#6 Bob Alexander – 4.618 at 113 mph
