While the nostalgia drag racers of the southwest enjoy a several week break in their schedules to avoid the most intense heat of the summer, the points battles developing on paper are anything but chilled. After a busy spring and early summer run, the respective points leaders in the Painless Performance Outlaw Fuel Altered Series, MalloryPrint.com Southwest Heritage Racing Association and Smiley's Racing Products Southwest Junior Fuel Association will have their work cut out to keep their names atop the charts as we enter the second half of the season.
With four events remaining, Jimmy Jones will have to keep doing what he does best, qualifying well and winning rounds, if he hopes to hold off the hard charging Kinsley. Mary Reep is currently third in points after notching her first OFAA series win earlier this season and with a strong fall effort, she could give the boys plenty of grief in the mix for the Championship battle. Terry Brian and Bobby Marriott round out the top five as the next stop for the OFAA tour will be on August 31st & September 1st at Mo-Kan Dragway in Asbury, Missouri. The OFAA series would like to recognize title sponsor Painless Performance Products, as well as Good Vibrations, Wizard's Warehouse, North Texas Diesel, Competition Sales of Dallas and 3rd Coast Commissioning Services for their support of the 2013 bonus programs.

The SHRA series also hosts two bracket classes for 79 and earlier bodied machines. Sharon Godwin in her 1958 Corvette and James Armstrong, wheeling an injected 1923 T altered, find themselves tied for the lead in the "Nostalgia Bracket" electronics class, a Championship that will be decided at North Star Dragway on October 5th. Bill Cogswell, currently undefeated in competition, has a strong grasp on the points lead in the no electronics "Hot Rod" class in his 1971 Ford Pinto and will likely find himself wearing the Championship jacket at the conclusion of the season October 5th. The SHRA series would like to recognize sponsors Mallory Screenprint & Embroidery, Robinson Restoration & Service and Meyer Enterprises as well as bonus supporters Good Vibrations, Harry's Hot Rod & Truck Accessories, Triple C Agency, North Texas Diesel, Competition Sales of Dallas and AlkyDiggers.com for their support this season.

Muncy's plan is simple, take Coker out and go rounds. Muncy has posted strong finishes in the top five for the last three consecutive seasons including a runner-up effort in 2011. With two events remaining in the 2013 SWJFA season, the Champion will be crowned on September 14th at Tulsa Raceway Park's "Nitro Nationals" as the teams battle for victory on the historic quarter mile. The SWJFA series would like to thank Smiley's Racing Products, Champion Spark Plugs, Hayden Enterprises and Hilborn Fuel Injection for their support this season. Find out more at www.swjfa.com.
