“Tricky” Rickie Smith, fresh after resetting the 1/4 Mile N2O Pro Mod “Unofficial” Record earlier in the week continued to run great during the race weekend. He blasted all the way the finals of Pro Mod where he ran into Stevie “Fast” Jackson, the #2 qualifier. Jackson was on a mission and put down a blistering 3.72@201 in the Shadow II to take the win over Smith, who spun to a 4.68@112. You can bet Tricky Rickie will be gunning to get even with Jackson when they meet up in NHRA Pro Mod soon, which will be a great battle to watch!
Congratulations to Stevie Fast, Phil Shuller, Billy Stocklin and the rest of the KTR Team on the first win of the season, and to Rickie Smith and Team on the Runner Up!!

Keith “The Shootout King” Szabo took home the Small Tire win November 25th at Redemption 9.0 which netted him a sweet $10k Christmas Stash! He also secured enough points to be crowned the Redemption Small Tire Champion!!! Szabo’s almost unbeatable performance in no-prep is a testament to a well thought out combo that he’s raced since 2002 with very few changes. He’s even running a 15 year old Neal Chance Bolt Together Converter, all they do is every year put a fresh Diode and seal in it and run it again!
Congratulations to Keith and his Dad on yet another very successful racing season, the Redemption 9.0 Win and the Championship!!!
