Bradshaw & Meyer duo dominate in Dallas.

ENNIS, Texas - Defending Division 5 Top Alcohol Dragster Champion Alan "QuickDraw" Bradshaw turned in a dominating performance in winning this past weekend's Division 4 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at the Texas Motorplex just outside of Dallas. Bradshaw and car owner/tuner Randy Meyer led the event from wire to wire, qualifying No. 1 and running low elapsed time of each round.

Bradshaw, who is a practicing chiropractor in Odessa, Texas, qualified No. 1 with a 5.345 at 257.73 mph. In round one, he took out Nick Copeland with a low E.T. of the event 5.333 at 262.92 mph. The semifinals was a match up of World Championship contenders as Bradshaw faced the current No. 2 man in national points, Morgan Lucas. Lucas' mount dropped cylinders while Bradshaw maintained his torrid pace to a 5.414 at 255.53 mph in the heat of the day.

In the final, Bradshaw took on drag racing legend and No. 2 qualifier Gene Snow. Bradshaw, known for his quick starting line reactions, took the holeshot and never looked back, running a 5.476 at 252.38 mph to take his first win of the year and first since partnering with car owner, Randy Meyer.

"It felt great getting the win this weekend," said Bradshaw. "We knew we were a win looking for a place to happen and it could not have been any better timing this weekend since we had two of our sponsors, Tony Owens, Attorney at Law of 1-888-CARWRECK and our newest sponsor for this weekend's Division 4 points race, Tim Stanley with www.GO-DragRacing.com in our pits with us this weekend. We enjoyed having Tony and Tim out and taking the win for them. Tim's website should be up and running full speed in the very near future. So stay tuned for more great news with Tim Stanley and his site. Speaking of websites, you can check out Tony Owens' website at www.TonyOwens.com."

"We would also like to dedicate this win to our fallen crewmember Rick Meyer," Bradshaw continued. "We came up one round short in Houston, but we got him a win this time. Randy had the car flying all weekend and the crew did a great job in giving me a killer hot rod every run. When you have a crew like I've got, life is good and they make my job easy. Without Myron, Craig, Ted, Stacey, Mary, and of course Randy, I wouldn't have this level of performance to take the win this weekend. I really appreciate all their hard work, they are the best!"

The win ties Bradshaw with David Wells in Division 5 and moved him to fifth in national points standings. Bradshaw and Meyer plan to take that momentum into next weekend's Division 5 opener at Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas to continue their title defense.

"We plan to keep the momentum up," commented Bradshaw. "The car is flying, and the team is working really well together."
