Bell Fiscus Racing at PDRA St Louis
BELL / FISCUS RACING (BFR) made the most of a wet weekend at the PDRA Mid-America Open race at Gateway Motorsports Park just outside of St. Louis, Illinois on May 29-30, 2015 in the Pro Boost class with a strong qualifying performance and a semi-finals appearance.
During the first round of Pro Boost qualifying, Kevin Fiscus twin turbo, PLR-powered 2012 Ford Mustang put down a nice, smooth 3.943 at 202.55 mph pass in the eighth mile right off of the trainer. For round two, Fiscus improved his numbers and went 3.888 at 203.98 mph which placed him third overall. The third and final round yielded even better results from Fiscus, and his 3.872 at 204.98 mph run kept him in the number three qualifier position. Meanwhile, Jim Bell’s twin turbocharged, Pro Line Racing 481X-powered 1969 Chevrolet Camaro got a little loose in the first round of Pro Boost qualifying, but Bell expertly recovered and piloted the car to a quick elapsed time of 3.968-seconds at 190.59 mph. His second qualifying run, however, resulted in an even better 3.875 at 201.79 mph pass which ranked Bell in the number one spot. Round three, however, brought with it some tire shake for Bell. As a result, he was forced to lift and clicked off a 5.088 at 125.44 mph run and dropped back into fourth overall.
Moving into eliminations, both Fiscus and Bell were pleased with how well their cars were performing despite having to work around multiple rain delays. In round one, Bell faced off against the number thirteen qualifier, Alan Pittman, and quickly dispatched his opponent with a winning 3.893 at 200.77 mph pass. Fiscus, too, was victorious in his match against Gerry Capano, the number fourteen qualifier.
Bell was unable to advance in round two, as he was defeated by Michael Biehle II, the number five qualifier. Bell cut a better light, and held the lead past the half-track mark, but Biehle was able to get around and crossed the finish ahead of Bell by approximately five feet. Fiscus, however, took out Eddie Rogers who had qualified eleventh and moved into the semi-finals where he lined up against Kevin Rivenbark. Fiscus got the holeshot advantage and left the line first, but slowed mid-track and gave up the win to the opposing driver.
“We’re really glad that all of our team’s hard work is paying off, and the cars are now performing like we expected them to,” said Bell. “This was a great weekend with great qualifying results for us both, and Kevin drove like a champ to get to the semi-finals. We’re going to work on keeping this momentum going!”
Both Bell and Fiscus will be competing in the Pro Mod class at the 46th annual Toyota NHRA Summernationals at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ on June 5th-7th, 2015 as the Bell/Fiscus Racing team continues their 23-race commitment for the 2015 season.
Biehle Goes to Finals in his PDRA Debut
In their first ever PDRA race, Michael Biehle and family entered the Biehle Motorsports Mustang into the Pro Boost category. Despite the car being more than 100lbs overweight, Biehle and his tuner, Jamie Miller felt confident that they had a competitive race car. They were right!
Biehle qualified #5 with a 3.87@202mph in a very tight field. Miller had the PLR 481X-powered Mustang resembling a bracket car all the way to the finals. In the Pro Boost finale, Biehle had trouble getting the car staged resulting in a red light. He did make a pass though, going 4.49@205mph.
Take a look at Biehle's passes over the weekend, his car was a model of consistency and only got better each time down the track!

Larson Wins NHRA Topeka in Street CarAfter a down to the wire heartbreaking loss at Drag Week 2014, Larry Larson and his hardworking crew shocked the world by breaking the 5 second barrier in a street car! That was last year...
In 2015 we hadn't heard much from the Larson camp, other than the fact that he is working hard on Jim Bell's Pro Mod! Last weekend we saw that Larson was entering the Top Sportsman class at NHRA Topeka! We were in for a treat!
Larson's 1998 S10 is powered by a PLR 620ci PB5001 BBC with twin Precision Pro Mod turbos and the FuelTech FT500 EFI system! He started the race very strong with a 6.29@228mph pass to take the #1 qualifying spot! With a whole lot of skill and a little bit of luck Larson found himself 1 round away from his first Wally! He concluded the event with a blistering 6.17@240mph for the win!
This victory stands as the first turbocharged entry to win Top Sportsman at a National Event!
Being a part of this team's success has been an exciting experience and we very proud of their acomplishments.

Team Jegs Pro Mods at NHRA Gatornationals
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (March 15) -- The JEGS.com Pro Mod team of Troy Coughlin Sr. and son Troy Coughlin Jr. (T.J.) came up one round short of an all-yellow-and-black final round in the NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Series race presented by the Real Pro Mod Association/Jerry Bickel Race Cars contested at the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Auto-Plus Raceway.
Both JEGS.com Corvettes experienced rare failures in their second-round victories, creating a full-on thrash before the semifinals. Troy Sr.'s new Corvette C7 made it to the staging lanes just in time, but after getting a .024-second edge on the Christmas Tree with a .023 light, his pass of 6.196 seconds at 237.84 mph couldn't hold off Bob Rahaim's 5.996 at 243.72 mph.
But T.J.'s Corvette wouldn't move after he put it in gear to do a burnout, giving Pete Farber an easy win.
Still, having both cars reach the semifinals means T.J. leaves Gainesville third in the Pro Mod points standings with Troy Sr. fourth.
"That's the best Gainesville we've ever had," Troy Sr. said. "We're leaving here with T.J. in third and myself in fourth. We've got a new car with seven runs on it, and we'll just go pick on it a little more. T.J.'s car, that thing is a weapon."
T.J. made his professional debut in Gainesville and performed well, qualifying No. 2 and getting two round-wins. He got a second-round win Sunday on a red-light by Billy Glidden, but the transmission and rear end broke during the run.
Troy Sr.'s car had the same fate in beating Mike Janis in the second round (6.162 at 249.26 mph to 8.745 at 116.93), taxing the team as it prepared to get both cars ready for the semifinals.
"The whole JEGS.com team -- (crew chief) Steve Petty, Justin Beaver, Kyle Pettis, Mike Rees -- worked really hard, and my Uncle Mike jumped in with his guys -- Greg Cody and Tony Collier," T.J. said. "Everyone had their hands on deck, and they did a fantastic job. To get them working like they did is impressive. I can't do it without these guys. I would have zero chances without them."
The JEGS.com team even got some help from Pro Mod drivers Danny Rowe and Steve Matusek.
"I see these hands coming that I've never seen before, and they're putting the doors on," Troy Sr. said. "I look back, and it's Steve Matusek. I'm like, 'Thanks, Steve.'
"We're blessed with a lot of friends, and this is a tight-knit group of racers. We would do anything for each other in a pinch.
"We've very seldom ever broke stuff. We just happened to break a transmission, rear end, and converter in both cars. We're equipped with the parts, but we never dreamed we had the issue with two cars. We'll reorganize a little bit and come back out swinging in Houston."
T.J., too, vowed to improve on his first pro weekend.
"You have to adapt," T.J. said. "You have no option in elimination rounds, so you have to be on point in every direction. I felt like I was lacking a little bit on the Christmas Tree the first two rounds. I feel like I'm getting it but I'm not. I need to go out and hit the Christmas Tree some more, watch more runs on the camera, and make some improvements.
"But all in all, the experience is a rush. It's a lot of fun. It's a different pace."

Keith Berry Wins US Street Nationals
Keith Berry and the Woooo! Nation initiated this year's racing campaign which he calls the 2015 Championship Tour! To kickoff his season, Berry headed to the US Street Nationals at Bradenton Motorsports Park. He is no stranger to Bradenton, about a month ago he went 3.97 during a test session there. His 2002 Corvette is powered by a 454ci PLR LS engine paired with the FuelTech FT500 EFI System.
Berry set the bar high for the other Drag Radial racers with a stout 4.04@189mph, which held on to the #1 qualifying position! His path to the final round would not be a cakewalk though, he had to get past Keith Neal, Rob Thornton, and eventually David DeMarco. His semifinal matchup with Rob Thornton was the highlight of the weekend! Thornton went 4.04 to Berry's 4.07, but Berry's .040 advantage off the line gave him enough to move on to the finals!
In the final round of eliminations, he faced David DeMarco in the Buick Regal. Berry and crew went out there and ran a 4.06@191mph to Dave's 4.12@184 and took home the big win!
We are very proud to be a part of the Woooo! crew and can't wait to see wat he can do this season. The 2015 Championship Tour has officially begun!
