(Top Fuel winner Brittany Force)

Robert Hight powered to the Funny Car victory Sunday at the 32nd annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at Texas Motorplex.

Robert Hight

Hight raced to a 3.877-second pass at 332.34 mph in his AAA of Texas Chevrolet Camaro SS to defeat reigning world champion and category points leader Ron Capps’ 3.927 pass at 329.18 in his NAPA Auto Parts Dodge R/T in the Funny Car final. It is Hight’s fourth win of the season, 41st of his career, third at Texas Motorplex and second in the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship. Hight remains second in the points standings with Capps in first by just 24 points.

“This was huge. A round win is worth 20 points but truthfully that final round win for us was 40 points,” said Hight, who was also the No. 1 qualifier at the event. “We were 44 back going into the final round and had we lost that’s 64. Winning brought it back to 24 which is a little over a round with two races left. That was a 40-point swing for us. That was big. We needed that one. We would have been pretty bummed leaving here over three rounds back.” READ FULL STORY

Making his 300th career start, Brad Keselowski survived a battle of attrition to win Sunday’s Alabama 500 for his fifth Talladega Superspeedway victory.  Keselowski escaped a crash-filled afternoon to win and advance to the round of eight in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs.   “I survived” Keselowski said. “What a special day. We haven’t been as good a we want to be on the mile-and-a-halfs, so we knew we needed to come to Talladega and get it done. This is a great track for us and one we really enjoy coming to. It’s great to get a win here. No. 5. I never thought I would win at all at Talladega, but five times. Oh my gosh.” Ryan Newman, Trevor Bayne, Joey Logano and Aric Almirola rounded out the top five.   Denny Hamlin, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kasey Kahne, Gray Gaulding and David Ragan completed the first 10 finishers.    Keselowski and Ryan Blaney won the day’s first two stages.   Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Jamie McMurray are the bottom four in the playoff standings.    The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series wraps up the second round of the playoffs next week at Kansas Speedway.

Camping World Truck Series Results: Kligerman Back in Victory Lane

Parker Kligerman

Parker Kligerman returned to Victory Lane at Talladega Superspeedway when he won Saturday’s Fred’s 250 as the Round of 6 was set for the Camping World Truck Series playoffs.   Kligerman only led three laps on Saturday including the final two and scored his second career series win, both coming at Talladega.
“This is incredible,” said Kligerman, who got by Bell on the final lap of overtime. “I’m out of breath, I guess I’m out of shape racing all these kids. It was just crazy that every move I tried, worked.
“Those last 10 laps, no matter if I went high and separated a pack or was trying get the bump and run, every move just worked. Sometimes, it just goes your way. We did that but it starts with having a fast truck. It’s an honor to be racing with this team, it’s one of the oldest in NASCAR, but to win with them is incredible.” READ FULL STORY

I got to work with and learn from the best.” READ FULL STORY

XFINITY Series Results: Bowman Breaks Through

Alex Bowman

CONCORD, N.C. –  Behind the wheel of a car on something other than a virtual race track for the first time in nearly a year, Alex Bowman warmed up for the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports ride he’ll inherit next season with a stunning victory in Saturday night’s rain-delayed Drive for the Cure 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.    Behind Bowman, who won for the first time in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, Ryan Reed soldiered home in 12th place, one position behind Brendan Gaughan. But Reed moved on to the XFINITY Playoff’s Round of 8 by one point over Gaughan, who was eliminated along with Jeremy Clements (20th on Saturday), Blake Koch (25th) and Michael Annett (27th).   Reed joins Justin Allgaier, Elliott Sadler, Brennan Poole, Cole Custer, Daniel Hemric, William Byron and Matt Tifft in the Round of 8, with the series set to resume competition Oct. 21 at Kansas Speedway.    Bowman, who hadn’t raced since his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup / XFINITY Series doubleheader last November at Homestead-Miami Speedway, finished 1.390 seconds ahead of part-timer Sam Hornish Jr., who passed Team Penske teammate Ryan Blaney in the closing laps for the second position. The start was Hornish’s fifth of the season. READ FULL STORY

Points N Plugs by Jerry Hutchcroft


These senseless tragedies CAN NOT AND MUST NOT define America. It is so sad that another mass shooting/killing has taken place in our country. Hopefully these horrible events will some day fade into history, but I fear not in my lifetime. When the September 11th tragedy took place, I knew right then that our country would change for ever because of it. I never imagined at the time, that mass killings would happen more and more often around the world, but also here in America. The HEROS at the Las Vegas tragedy should continue to define America. We’ve heard story after story about the First Responders that jumped into action even while the shooting was still taking place. We’ve also heard story after story of concert goers that despite the terror that was taking place around them, they too took action to help people who had been injured or were frozen in fear. My sister Debby told me that her son Brian and his wife Jessica had saved their money to attend this concert along with several friends, as a close out the summer special event. She said that they were fairly close to the stage when the first shots began to ring out. They, like most others thought it was fireworks or firecrackers going off, until they started hearing the bullets hitting the stage area. Intense fear sweeps over your body as you realize that this is real. Brian’s wife Jessica was hit in the foot with shrapnal and began to bleed very badly. Brian overcame his fear and quickly went to work stopping the bleeding with his shirt and belt. Brian led their group from Southern California to run, along with some people that they had been talking to at the concert. Debby said that Brian had to literally push some people that were frozen in fear to get them started running. Sadly one of the ladies that they had been talking to seconds before the shooting started, was hit while they were running and died right there. Brian led this group to one of the border fences near the airport, but people could not get over the fence. Somehow with his adrenelin pumping Brian was able to pull a support pole out of the ground, opening up a spot in the fence where people could find safety. When things calmed down they moved Jessica to an ambulance, where Brian helped other people in the ambulance that were also injured. He continued to help people as he could, all night while at the hospital and no he has no medical training.

Steve Torrence

“We got here by doing what we do all year long and doing it ourselves,” Torrence said. “We went out and we just took those guys out and put them back in the trailer. We’re leaving here with a bigger points lead and a trophy. You’re going to have to come in here and do everything you can to get every possible point because this thing could come down to one or two points at the end of the season.” READ FULL STORY
