Smith Scores at Ozark Raceway Park
Takes Over CSS Points Lead

Adam Smith and the "Adam Bomb" blown slingshot dragster put a hurt on the competition at Ozark Raceway Park in the second CSS event of the season. Smith met Don Wilcox in the final round, but Wilcox went -.292 red at the tree and Smith cruised to a 4.60 at 141 mph to score his first win of the season! With the win, Smith now holds a two point lead in the current championship point standings followed by Dave Gallegos in second and Wilcox in third. The next CSS event will be held at Mo-Kan Dragway on September 2nd!

Gallegos Scores First CSS Victory in Kansas

The Central States Superchargers kicked off their 2017 racing season at Kansas International Dragway in Wichita, Kansas on Saturday, May 13th. Four inches of rain drenched the facility on Thursday night leaving less than favorable conditions for the main event on Saturday, but the race must go on right? Yes! 11 cars made the tow to Wichita including the first funny car to run with the series, Russell Ballew's new "Ballew Thunder" Nova bodied flopper. In the pits before qualifying got underway, Bill Seals discovered flywheel issues that sidelined his team as ten cars were ready to hit the track for their one and only qualifying shot.

The final round guaranteed us one happy winner as Gallegos was looking for his first career CSS event win, while Knowles and tuner Dale "Lurch" Wilkens were hoping to put their car in the winners circle since debuting their new nitro burner. Unfortunately for Knowles, severe tire shake in the semi-finals destroyed some timing equipment and he was unable to fire up for the final. Gallegos would have a solo shot to the winners circle and his 4.97 at 119 mph took the first win for the "Nitro Clown" team and first CSS event win of 2017!
