myself, I participated in the Louisiana Drag Classic, which Bracket Masters
and I felt right at home! What a warm reception! The whole Bracket

Towed for teammate and lover “Mr. Mad” @ the Clash of the Titans.
Mad was the number one qualifier and definitely is
a formidable contender in EZ Street.
Tried out the new Evadale track (Ben Bruce Memorial Airway Race Park);
it’s an awesome track! It’s fast!
10/9/03 - Tery Red and Mr. Mad
attended the Louisiana Drag Classic at No Problem Raceway Park on 10/4/03

Dec. 30, 2004 -
Just dropping in to say hi! Tery and I
haven't been able to get down there as much as we like, but this next year,
we will be traveling. Tery's firebird has a new home (Penn. State) And both
of us are running Camaro's now. We will see you guys soon.

3/5/05 - Tery, the boys and Mr. Mad were at the Super Chevy Show, without
cars, at No Problem Raceway Park. Their cars are set up for 1/8 mile
and it would have taken a lot of work to make them ready for this weekend.
They are all looking good and enjoying talking with the members.
6/28/05 - Tery's Update!
I was just
writing to update you guys on our racing. We went to a local event called,
The Clobberton, and we Won
our class. Six (6) rounds of racing. Mr. Mad took my ride out for a spin in
this win. The car is dead consistent and ready for the Classic. Also the
small block in our TS car is gone to it's new home up in Chicago. So the new
larger motor is on the way. We will see if we can give Mr. Houston a run for
his money. (Editors note: Sounds like a Match Race challenge to me!)
- Tery and Mr. Mad's Latest Update:
How's everything been? All well I
hope. We have made some changes here. Tery's car has been sold to
hopefully make way for a later body style soon. Our tube chassis Texas
Pro Stock car is finally getting there, we finished dynoing the motor
Friday, and it was pretty good for a conventional headed 554 BBC. It
made 1078 hp @ 8000, and 791 ft. lb. of torque @ 6300. This should get
us in the ball park. We are looking for some 4.8's in the 1/8 mile. We
are hoping to make it out to the Drag Classic, have you guys ever
considered running 1/8 mile at the drag classic? As you mentioned, it
is more economical and safer. I would love to run the car, but we
really only run 1/8 mile. Any way we hope to see you guys soon.
Mr. Mad & Tery Red.
(Editors note: Their engine made
over 200 HP more than Skip's BBC on the dyno! I have noticed that
most of the match race Pro Mods, Baby Pro Mods and the Texas Pro Mod
group, all run 1/8 mile in their events. That may be one way of
getting more fast cars to come to our race.)
