“Madman” Taylor Parks It In ADRL Dragstock Final at Texas Motorplex Saturday Night

DALLAS – Once again, former two-time American Drag Racing League (ADRL) Pro Extreme champion Frankie “The Madman” Taylor earned a trip to the Texas Motorplex Winners Circle after his class victory at ADRL Dragstock Saturday night. And once again, the trip to the Extreme Racing Oil & Fuel 2022 ADRL Tour Presented by RJS Racing finals was interesting.

Taylor earned the win over PX Top Qualifier Doug Riesterer with a pass of 3.620 seconds at 208.39 mph, the quickest of the weekend. Although Riesterer caught Taylor sleeping on the tree with a reaction time of .032 seconds versus Taylor’s .130 RT, Taylor’s Larry Jeffers-built Corvette was too much against Riesterer’s 3.719-second lap at 184.89 mph.

While not as strange his his 2020 PX win here, Taylor still managed to get to the finals uniquely. Both Taylor and Reisterer took their E1 victories against race cars unable to make the start. In the second round, Taylor faced tough competition against Paul Brandt, driving the Camaro of his son Travis, when Brandt laid down a 3.672-second pass at 205.83 mph. Unfortunately, he came up short against the Madman’s 3.635-second lap at 205.83 mph.

Riesterer Atop ADRL PX Leaderboard Friday in Dragstock Quals at Texas Motorplex

DALLAS – Despite Mother Nature getting her way late Friday night at the Texas Motorplex, fans were treated to two full rounds of qualifying for Dragstock, the return of the Extreme Racing Oil & Fuels 2022 ADRL Tour Presented by RJS Racing to the facility. Victoria, Texas’ own Doug Riesterer sits atop the Pro Extreme charts after a blistering pass of 3.65 seconds at 209 mph in the heat of the spring evening.

Travis Brandt laid down the gauntlet in Q1 with his ET of 3.672 seconds at 205 mph. While the temps were warm, the track was well-prepped by a world-class drag crew and Brandt’s lap gave the field confidence there was speed to be found in that eighth mile.

To kick off the second round, Charles Letteer went straight down the lane at 209 mph for a 3.76-second pass. A couple cars later, Riesterer came up to the line and 3.65 seconds later, PX had its P1.

And then the rain came.

SCSN: Dallas Debuts During ADRL Dragstock at Motorplex This Weekend

DALLAS — The Texas Motorplex here Friday and Saturday is the location for the latest Street Car Super Nationals, joining its sister events in Las Vegas and St. Louis.
