Passing Of Darrell Williams - President of United Black Drag Racers Association (UBDRA)
March 7, 2018 - St. Louis, MO
Darrell Williams and the members of UBDRA helped Bracket Masters Racing Team and The United Black Racers of New Orleans get started with the first and 2nd “Louisiana Drag Classic” races, back in 2000. Their team bought 6-7 cars, including Darrell's 8 Sec. Nova, and a Pro-Mod, to our race. They also brought the first black Jr. Dragster driver to run at SCR (a young lady). He was a real good person, a real friend and visionary. He was dedicated to community service in the St. Louis area and their non-profit organization, UBDRA, contributed to many families and organizations in the city annually. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, they had at least two other organizations in different cities.
Darrell and the UBDRA were real trailblazers for many black racing organizations of the USA. “Black Sunday” is by far the biggest and best black drag racing event that has ever been given, and has survived for all these years. Bracket Masters Racing Team and the United Black Racers of New Orleans, took 10-12 cars to the St. Louis event two years, 1999 and 2000. Several racers from the Baton Rouge and New Orleans area have attended over the past 20 years.

Bracket Masters Racing Team Had A Great Time In The Chaneyville Christmas Parade. Many Children are Blessed with Bikes
Merry Christmas! Christmas came early for about 20 children that attended the parade. The ultimate "throw" for the children. The racing team collected bikes from the team members, sponsors, other racers and friends to help with the blessings.
The team participation was very limited this year due to the early "White Christmas" that blacked our area, along with the low temps. that kept the ground covered with snow. Baton Rouge will not have to dream about a White Christmas, just remember the first week in December, 2017.

Members of Bracket Masters Racing Team Visit Glen Oaks High School Auto Tech Program
Glen Oaks High School was a victim of the August 2016 Flood in Baton Rouge and has just recently reopened the main campus to classes. With the opening of the school, a new Auto Tech Program is being put into place. As you will see when you look at the photos, there is not much left of a once proud program.
The new instructor, Mr. David, has grand plans in mind for the education and certification of his students. He knows it will be a long road, but the EBR School is investing a lot of money and resources into the project.
Bracket Masters Racing Team President, Tarrus Jones, has commuted to helping the schools Auto Tech Program get back up and running. Team members will volunteer time monthly to help out. Some of the team members will bring their cars to the school for show-and-tell.
Team Members that were present today: Tarrus Jones, James Allen (with his car), Skip Holbert, Patrick Lars and Earl Mackey.
Help form the community would be greatly appreciated. In addition to the Auto Tech Program, there is also a Welding Program.

Bracket Masters 12th Fathers Day Classic
The race was great! Everyone had a nice time, the rain stopped about 30 min. before time trials begin and the track was so hot it almost dried itself.
The Jr. Dragster racers finished in the morning and the kids were awarded metals for participating. The winners and and runner-up drivers got plaques.
The Big cars started around 4pm and each car was given two time trials before eliminations started. We did not have one oil down or major spill. All of the drivers are to be congratulated for bringing there well prepared cars out and shaving a lot of fun without holding up for track clean-up.
The annual raffle was held and the awards for Father and son and father and daughter of the year were given out.

Team members, President Tarrus Jones, Mark Washington, Willie Davis and Skip Holbert had their cars on hand to run in eliminations. All except Mr. Skip ran in Non-Electronics class, while Outlaw ran the Mr. Skip Camaro in Top Doorslammer class.
Outlaw won in round one, of Top Doorslammer, taking out Jessie Marceaux, who beat us just two weeks ago in the first round. We lost to Jessie's dad in the 2nd round on a double break-out, and bought back into Super Pro. We won in the 3rd round of Super Pro before losing in the 4th round.
Mark and Willie did much better. Both team members won in the first three rounds and met each other in round 4 of Non-E, where Willie Davis and his Duster took out Mark's Chevrolet Wagon on a hole shot. Willie lost in round 5, but took home some money and a $$ Sticker.
All in all it was a very good day at the track. Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Washington and Mrs. Holbert (Barbara) and Johnny Tate were on hand.
