Texas Motorplex would like to thank all 2018 bracket season kick off participants. Mother Nature pushed us hard however, we were able to get one race complete.

Congratulations to Jeff Nekuza on his Super Pro win over Joe Rangel. Both Jeff and Joe navigated their way to the final round after putting 62 cars on the trailers.

Congratulations to Kenneth Boner with his Pro win over David Kubin. Both Kenneth and David put 36 cars on the trailer to meet in the finals for their match up in the finals round.

Congratulations to Brad Baxter with his Street win over Kent Birkes. 13 cars showed for first round of street on Saturday. Brad and Kent matched up in the final round with Brad taking the W.

The future of drag racing looks bright with the tough competitors in the Jr classes.

The Jr Sportsman class consist of children from 6-9 years old. Logan Atkins takes the Win over Camden Teel in the final round, which was pulled off on Saturday before Mother Nature arrived.

The Jr Modified class consist of kids ranging from 10-18 years old. Graeme Rufenacht pulled off a Hole shot win over Cooper Maston in the final round of Jr Modified. Both Graeme and Cooper pushed hard through 18 cars in the first round to meet in the finals for a showdown of their skills.

The Jr Street class is new and introduces Jr Dragster Drivers to full size cars to begin their big car career. Jordan Eperjesi and Trent Augustyn made it to the final two where Jordan took the hole shot win over Trent.
