We had good and bad luck in Charlotte. Keith got in and I didn't. The good news is at least one of us got in. My first run was very promising with a 4.08. Second and third run we shook the tires hard. We were 14th going into Q4. We ran a 4.07 in the heat but got bumped out. The bump was a 4.06. The good news was we were able to pick up in the heat and we didn't hurt anything. The motors are now getting freshened and will be ready for Memphis. On a different note, I will be debuting the A/Fuel dragster at the Topeka Regional event. This is owned by Brad McWilliams and driven by me. We will have Steve Boggs as the tuner and will be our first race of the 2012 season with this car. If all goes well, we will run Noble, Ok and Ennis, Texas in September.
See you at the track.

We had a good weekend in Martin, MI. We qualified #16 with a hurt transmission. We knew going into first round unless he red-lit or blew the tires off, we would be in trouble. We had to leave in second gear and the car would be a slug. We lost that round but first race of the season and we seem to be jelling as a team. We will get the tranny fixed and be ready for Charlotte first of August. See you at the track!

We are heading to Martin, Mi to race the ADRL series. We have fresh motors from Reher-Morrison and making some serious horsepower. We tested in Tulsa and feel we will be competetive right out of the gate. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook. You can watch the race at http://.www.adrl.us. They will have live streaming video of the event. Wish us luck and hope to see you at the track!

We have new motors coming from Reher-Morrison. We will have them by Wednesday the 27th and plan to test before the Martin, MI race. We are excited to finally be able to compete in the ADRL. It's been a tough year but I think we are finally on track to make a splash in the ADRL series. Hope to see you at the track.

I will be driving for John Woods and teaming with Keith Haney for the 2012 Drag Racing Season. We are building a Stroupe 2012 Camaro with a Steve Schmidt 845ci with Nitrous. I will be running the Pro Nitrous class in the ADRL Series. We are looking to have a fun and exciting 2012 and hope to win the championship as well. Come see us race in 2012 and have a safe New Year's.

We had a bad day at Englishtown. We smoked the tires the first two attempts at qualifying. We were not qualified going into the final qualifying session. We shook the tires and I peddled it and ran a 5.32. We were now qualified 5th going into the first round of eliminations. There were several delays but we finally got to make our pass at around 7:00pm, that's when things went horribly wrong. I put a link to watch the crash. We both walked away sore but alive. We are getting a back up car ready for Tulsa this next weekend. Going to try and win at my home track. Hope to see you out there.
We didn't win Houston but had a very fast and consistent car. We qualified #1 for the third time in a row with a 5.22 @ 277 MPH. We were fastest every round of qualifying as well. The first round of Eliminations we dropped a hole and shook the tires. The car recovered but he caught us at the stripe. The crew worked very hard and we feel we have a great car to continue to be a threat at every race. Thanks again to TIGERFLOW and Lucas Oil for their continued support. We will see you at the next race.

We won Houston. We qualified #1 with a 5.25 @ 275. We had a bye run in the first round. We ran a 5.26 @ 279 in the second round to earn a place in the finals. Our opponent broke for the final round so we decided to go for a record run and smoked the tires. Oh well, we won the opening event in Division 4. We are getting ready for Charlotte, NC. We won the event last year so we are excited to go back and try to repeat. See you at the track.

We have posted the 2011 schedule. We finished #6 in the world for 2010. We are now inventorying parts and getting ready for 2011 race season. We will start out in Houston, our home division, this year. We are excited to have Lucas Oil on board again this year. They are a great company with a great product. The guys are excited and so am I. Ready to try and win the National Championship. See all of you at the track!
