Frankie “Mad Man” Taylor Collects 2nd Win at ADRL QRC

Frankie Taylor took the win in Round 3 of the Arabian Drag Racing League International Championship, this is his second win in the series giving him a nice points boost. The win was no cake walk for Taylor as fellow NCRC equipped Alex Hossler was set on kill recording a 3.549@212.93 during qualifying. Taylor pushed the tree when he went up against Von Smith in the semi-finals resulting in a .014 light and a nice victory running 3.58@212.03 over Von Smith’s 3.59@209.43.

In the final against Alex Hossler both cars broke, but Frankie was able to still put down a 3.70 pass while Hossler set on the line broken – that would have been an awesome all NCRC final round if both cars hadn’t suffered breakage.

Congratulations to Mad Man and crew for the win and to the Hossler Al-Anabi Team on their runner up!!!

Records a 4.01 in Competition, Wins 3rd Round ADRL QRC

Todd Tutterow has taken claim to the official Outlaw 10.5 record during the 3rd round of racing of the Arabian Drag Racing Leauge after recording a 4.01 pass in competition. He also laid claim to the event win driving the Al-Anabi Outlaw 10.5 Corvette, his third in a row after Dave Hance redlighted in the final round. On that pass Tutterow laid down yet another 4.04@191.61.

Tutterow become the first Outlaw 10.5 driver in the threes on January 14th when the Al-Anabi Corvette stopped the clocks with a 3.993@191.95. Although since it was in testing it’s an “unoffical” record, regardless he was the first to get there and nobody will forget it.

Todd is certainly in the lead for the series points championship with triple back to back wins, which will be a nice payday for him.

Congratulations King Tut on the Win and New “official” World Record!!!

Justin Swanstrom captured his second X275 win of the season at the US Nationals in Bradenton on January 27th. The Fat Boy Racing Team qualified #2 with a impressive 4.751@150.50 and ran a consistently fast pace every round. They met up with Scotty Guadagno in the final who was driving the Mustang of Eugene Rodriguez at this race. Both cars slowed in this round, but Justin still came out on top once again running a 4.870@148.09 to Guadagno’s 4.946@143.33.

That makes for a great back to back win after the Tomato Nationals earlier this year. The Father & Son Team has been making all the right calls and taking that Silver Mustang to the winners circle. We’re looking forward to seeing how the team does at SGMP very soon!

Congratulations to Justin & Corey on your second win of the season – keep it up guys!!
