Fans attending the most recent NHRA Nationals event witnessed a special and first time presentation….

The 2019 version NHRA AAA Texas Fall Nationals, held at the iconic Texas Motorplex (south of Dallas) did include a taste of Pro Mod class racing despite the fact that NHRA’s own E3 Spark Plugs Pro Mod Series was not on the calendar schedule.

Instead, negotiations were successful for an added attraction exhibition eliminator, featuring one of the region’s emerging popular circuits – the Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Pro Mod Series — which is in it’s 2nd year of existence.

The MWPMS 2019 champion – Aron Wells – won a special 1/8th mile demonstration during NHRA’s AAA Texas Fall Nationals

That circuit, which in fact did wrap up its official 2019 season series in mid September — ran a cool demonstration race for the fans at Dallas — with 22 cars attending and making qualifying runs.

Oklahoma City’s Aron Wells, who had clinched the series championship at the final event held in Memphis — showed his stuff again by winning racing his supercharged ’67 Mustang.

Wells ran a final round 3.730 secs at 205.69 mph to top Justin Jones’ C7 Corvette which shook the tires in the championship round.

Wells — who had notched 2 other event wins during the MWPMS regular season — had taken the measure of Tommy Cunningham, Clint Satterfield and Adam Flamholc in earlier completion.

Jeffery Cummings motored his Mustang to #1 in qualifying — setting low ET

The feisty and entertaining program was a pretty swift affair too. Despite being limited to only 2 qualifying sessions — the 16-car bump spot was set at 4.153 secs.

Home state racer Todd Moyer set top speed of the meet at 213.50 mph.

Home-state Texas racer Jeffery Cummings qualified #1 and set low ET of the event with his supercharged ’19 Mustang (at 3.782 secs) and another Texan, Todd Moyer was credited with top speed at 213.50 mph in his super speedy turbocharged Camaro.

Justin Jones’ C7 Corvette from Texas was the event runner-up.

The Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Pro Mod Series is an all-eighth-mile, no-profit organization. For more information on the series visit: (
