Welcome ladies, gentlemen, kids of all ages crews, and drivers to Race #3 of the SNRA 2017 Southern Fryed Drag Tour here at the New Mexico Motorsports Classic at the Albuquerque National Dragway in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Itís a beautiful clear evening. Itís only 55 degrees out with 10 mph tailwind. The dropping temps from this afternoonís qualifying rounds will have the crews making many adjustments to maximize tonightís performance.

So let's go racing. Tonight's first pair are Historic Racing Associates teammates. Paul D. "Speed Merchant" Smith.fast qualifier for the third week in a row VS the 2016 SFDT champion L. Edward "ET" Foot. Let's see if the third time is the charm and Speed can convert that fast time into an overall win.

Speed is driving the 310 Cu. In. Aluminum Small Block "Chevy" powered, "Little Feather" Junior Fuel Dragster, prepared by last years champions, Historic Racing Associates.

"ET" is driving the 392 Cu. In. Dodge Hemi powered "Tin Box" B/Fuel Competition Coupe for the Historic Racing Associates also.

Both men have staged and "ET" charges off with a .8 second advantage. Speed cuts a perfect light and reels "ET" in, to win by a car length. Speed will move on to Round 2.

Has a checkered past.

Stand on it....brakes only slow yoou down.

Welcome back ladies, gentlemen, kids of all ages crews, and drivers to Race 3 of the SNRA 2017 Southern Fryed Drag Tour here at the New Mexico Motorsports Classic at the Albuquerque National Dragway in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Itís a beautiful clear evening. Itís only 50 degrees out with 10 mph tailwind. So bundle up as we have a lot of racing yet to do tonight.

Our first pair in semi-finial round are Paul D. "Speed Merchant" Smith VS Barry Kuta.

Speed is driving the beautiful "Little Feather" Junior Fuel Dragster, and Barry is driving the clean SVO Turbo Mustang II.

The drivers are staged. Barry charges off with a 1.9 second head start, but Speed has him covered today and runs him down in time. Speed is moving into Final Round.

Dave will do a single car pass. He is driving his 1972 Nova SS-Pro stock for DTD Motorsports.

Dave warms his tires and stages. Dave makes a clean pass, while searching the traction limits of the Nova. Dave will meet Speed in the Final Round.


That concludes tonight's semi-final round. Be sure to stick around for tonight's final round, after the break.


Has a checkered past.

Welcome back to the final round of the SNRA 2017 Southern Fryed Drag Tour here at the New Mexico Motorsports Classic at the Albuquerque National Dragway in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Itís a beautiful, clear, but cool evening.

This is what we've all come to see, Dave VS Spped.

Speed is driving the 310 Cu. In. Aluminum Small Block "Chevy" powered, "Little Feather" Junior Fuel Dragster, prepared by last years champions, Historic Racing Associates.

Posted Image

Dave will be driving his 1972 Nova SS-Pro stock/superstock powered by a 454 big block for DTD Motorsports and sponsored by Valvoline Oil.

The drivers do their burn outs and gingerly stage. Dave roars away with a 2.6 second lead. Speed waits patiently and charges after him. Once again Speed wins by half a car length to be tonight's overall champion.

Will you all join me in congratulating the 2016 New Mexico Motorsports Classic Champion, Speed. fbr

That concludes tonight's program. I hope all y'all will join us next week at the Alamo Runoffs at San Antonio Raceway in Marion, Texas on March 4th.

From all of us here at HRA another big Thanx for the great job done by the organizers of the SFDT. It's the highlight of our year as we get to exercise some of the historic iron in our garage. We're especially happy for Dr. Paul D. "Speed Merchant" Smith, who, now into his third year of driving for us in the Southern Fryed is showing some of the finesse off the line that we all new was in him. It was a calculated risk to dial down the bhp this year by putting Speed in the Little Feather but we're hoping it will pay off.
Keep on buildin'
