Jones Clinches Third Straight Painless Performance
OFAA Championship with Win at Texas Raceway
The Painless Performance Products Outlaw Fuel Altered Series invaded Texas Raceway as thirteen cars came to strut their stuff under the lights on a chilly Friday night in North Texas. Jimmy Jones came into the event with a very slim points lead in this, the ninth and final event of the 2013 racing season. Tricky track conditions welcomed these 1500+ horsepower machines as the crew chiefs and drivers were doing all they could to get hooked up and lay down a number during qualifying.

The twentieth and final member of the OFAA 3 Second Club, Raymond Dawson and the "High Octane" team tuned by Danny Wright were able to lay down a solid 4.03 at 170 mph, which held up to earn the team their first ever number one qualifying spot. Dawson was followed closely by young gun John Broussard in the Louisiana based "Purple Haze" entry at a 4.04 at 188 mph. Points leader Jimmy Jones and the "Texas Tremor" qualified third with a 4.06 at 152 mph and Doyle Smith posted his best qualifying effort of the season in the "Chemical Reaction" with a 4.14, good for the number four spot. Mark Bowman's "Blown Income" and Bobby Marriott's "Shockwave" also earned spots in the top half of the twelve car field as the teams concluded their two qualifying sessions and returned to the pits to prepare for the opening round of eliminations.
Kinsley's Fourth Win Rocks North Star Dragway
The Painless Performance Outlaw Fuel Altered Association held its eighth event of the nine race 2013 season at North Star Dragway in Denton, Texas, headlining the Fall Nostalgia Nationals on October 5th. Entering this event, two time defending series Champion Jimmy Jones and the "Texas Tremor" team held the points lead by slim eight points over Kebin Kinsley in the Roger Hennen Motorsports "Nitro Junkie" entry. Mary Reep also stood a chance just twenty two points out of the lead in her "Grim Reeper" altered. With fifteen cars on the property, the title contenders would have their work cut out as each round would play a crucial hand in the hunt for the Championship.

A wicked cold front arrived later than expected and drenched the NSD facility right as the first round of qualifying was set to begin. With a drop of over twenty degrees, the sun setting and continued drizzle into the late evening hours, North Star Dragway had no choice but to postpone the event one day. An incredible forecast of sunny skies and temperatures in the high 70's welcomed the OFAA racers and fans on Sunday, October 6th as teams filled the morning sky with nitro fumes on their pre-race warm-ups.
Farris Claims First OFAA Win
In Over a Decade at Baytown
Jimmy Jones, the two time defending series Champ, entered Baytown in the lead by just five points in his "Texas Tremor" blown alcohol entry, followed closely by the Hennen Motorsports "Nitro Junkie" team with the red hot Kebin Kinsley behind the wheel. Jones started off the 2013 season with a win at North Star Dragway, but since then hasn't seen the winners circle or even a final round, yet he continues to hold his points lead with consistency and a handful of round wins. Kinsley came from below the top ten in points early in the season to the number two position with an incredibly strong summer, winning the last three straight OFAA events heading into Baytown.

The thrash was on in the pits as the finalists prepared their machines for one last blast down the Royal Purple Raceway to determine a winner here in Baytown. The teams brought their cars to the lanes and the drivers suited up. Reep hoped to continue chipping away at the leaders in the standings while Farris' looking to win his first OFAA event of the season. The call went out to fire em' up and troubles set in for Reep. Despite desperate attempts to get the car started, the "Grim Reeper" just would not fire up and the signal was given to Farris' that they would finish the race on a single. Farris staged the "War Wagon" and thundered down the strip with a spectacular finish as the rear end let go and the motor over revved lifting the blower and exiting the rods from the engine block in a costly 3.72 at 191 mph, but who cares, they won!
