Texas Raceway (Kennedale, Texas)
August 3 (Friday)
Texas Raceway held their 10th Annual B.H.R.A. Nationals Friday night. The weather was hot, but there was a large crowd on hand to help remember drag racing legend Bill Hielscher. Bill was a national drag racing champion, promotor and track owner. This is Texas Raceway's biggest event of the year. Some of the highlights were Raymond Beadle's "Blue Max", Gene Snow's Nitro Burning A/Fuel Dragster, NHRA Champion John Hale, Jimmy Jones Outlaw Fuel Altered, Texas Blown Fuel Assoc., Gaylen Smith's Outlaw Pro Mod just to name a few plus a fireworks show. Early in the evening, Gene Show's Nitro Burning A/Fuel Dragster clocked a 201.59 mph at 3.69 seconds. That's really flying down a 1/8th mile track. It was a night to remember.
