One thing you can be sure of when watching the Throwdown in T-Town is a show that doesn’t let you down! With over 37,000 people in the stands and the pits filled wall to wall with hard pounding shootout cars, it’s epic!
This years Throwdown featured an unexpected match race between Scotty Palmer’s Top Fuel Dragster and Frankie Taylor’s Pro Mod, Fans went NUTS when they seen the two line up against each other! The crowd went wild when Palmer blew the tires off at the hit and Taylor clicked off yet another picture perfect 3.58 pass that he had been running all night! Most don’t realize that Taylor’s Pro Mod is FASTER to the 330′ with 60′ times in the .890’s and certainly more consistent than a Top Fueler! Hat’s off to the Scotty Palmer Team and the Stupid Fast Team of Taylor’s for an awesome match race! You know what they say, if you’re gonna pick a match race with a Top Fueler, better have a Chance 🙂

David Summerton took home the win for Team DFA in the MX275 Class with bracket like consistency and quick reactions, pass after pass with solid 4.90 performances. David defeated Missouri’s Jason Brown for the final round win with a email@example.com.
Car owner Sam England made all the right calls resisting the urge to “TURN IT UP”, instead relying on going down track every pass, and it paid off big time for the Team every round. Team DFA made a lot of improvements over the winter and have came out with a big win right off the bat! Sam says there’s a lot more left in Mean Green, so hold on to your hats!
Congratulations David, Sam, Chris and the rest of the DFA Team on your 1st Win!!!
