    Comp WFO Qualifying Tulsa LODRS 4-5 Race Report

    Congratulations to the winners of the Comp WFO Qualifying race in Tulsa this weekend. The conditions for qualifying were about as bad as it could get. The temp was high, the barometer was low and the water grains were about the highest I’ve ever seen. You could definitely feel the stress on the humans and the machines.

    Joe “Bullseye” Arrowsmith traveled from the Great North to show us how its done when it comes to figuring out performance in bad air. In the first session he lined up his sights on Clark “El Toro” Smiley and took the stripe with a stellar 7.959 -0.581. In the final WFO session “Bullseye” reached into his quiver and pulled out a 0.007 reaction and left SECOND to Brian “Bellhousing” Browell’s perfect 0.000! Pops tune up got him to the stripe first though with a 8.016 -0.524. Pull that one up on NHRA.Tv, its worth watching. With 2 wins and a combined -1.105 under the index Joe was the A-Field Winner. Congratulations to Joe and family. They took $1000.00 back to the land of 1000 lakes along with a bottle of whiskey, a bottle of wine and a great photo for the trophy wall.

    Dean “Cool Cat” Carter was able to floor the competition for the A-Field runner up. In the first session he laid down a 6.968 -0.542 to take the win. He used his straight and true method and wasn’t going to let anyone walk on him with a 7.032 -0.478 to win the second match. With 2 wins and a combined -1.020 under the index Dean and family are taking $500, a bottle of Vodka, a bottle of wine and a great photo for the trophy wall back to the valley of the sun. He has a great video that was filmed earlier in the year. Please check that out. It’s awesome!

    Clint “Tow Mater” Neff hauled the oversized 4 banger to a 7.606 -0.494 in his first session loss to Craig “Make it so #1” Bourgeois. In the second session he could only muster a 7.978 -0.122 for the win light after the competition got the red eye. With a second session win and a combined -.616 under the index he was the B-Field Winner taking $500, a bottle of whiskey, a bottle of wine, and a great photo for the trophy wall back to the mountains of Colorado.

    Joey “Suave” Tanksley was unable to out fox Don “The High Plains Engine Builder” in the first session but trotted his way to a 6.797 -0.293. In the second session he waltzed the pedal to a 6.767 -0.323 after Keith “The Farmer” Hall left a little to early. With a second session win and a combined -.616 under the index he was the B-Field runner up. He and Neff were exactly the same combined under the index so we had to go to the tie breaker to determine the winner. Tow Mater had the better reaction time in the second session win 0.039 to Suave’s 0.092. Joey and family took $250, a bottle of vodka, a bottle of wine, and a great photo for the trophy wall back to Louisiana.
