Pro Stock Motorcycle

Smith moved into the points lead to finish off a dominating weekend in Pro Stock Motorcycle, beating Hector Arana Jr. in the final round. Arana left too soon on the starting line, while Smith put together a run of 6.839 at 199.08 on his Denso Auto Parts/Stockseth/Matt Smith Racing EBR. It gave Smith his first career victory at Texas Motorplex, along with his fifth victory of the season and 31st in his career. He reached the final round with wins against Michael Ray, Chris Bostick and his wife, Angie, to advance to the final round. Smith also had the quickest run in the class in each round of eliminations, moving into the points lead where he now holds an eight-point advantage over Steve Johnson with three Pro Stock Motorcycle races remaining.





“It was a great weekend for this Denso team,” said Smith, who also set the track speed record this weekend. “We were pretty flawless all weekend and we were low every round. We’ve got a pretty awesome team. Since 2005, I’ve always wanted to win this race and never got it done, and I’m just glad to get it done. We’ve had the best bike all year. Steve has definitely stepped his program up and we’re going to go head-to-head with him the rest of the year, and hopefully we can pull this out and get a fifth championship. That’s the goal and we’re going to do everything we can to try and do it.”

Arana Jr. knocked off Kelly Clontz, Jerry Savoie and Johnson to reach the final round for the first time this season and 28th time in his career.

The NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series returns to action Oct. 15-17 with the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway.

SATURDAY

Steve Johnson’s run from Friday held up and he added a pair of solid runs to close out qualifying for good measure, with his 6.756 at 198.44 on his Brady Mechanical Services Suzuki giving the points leader his third No. 1 qualifier of the 2021 season. It’s also the seventh career No. 1 qualifier for the veteran, who entered the weekend with a 17-point lead over Angelle Sampey. He looked strong in qualifying, making the best run in three of the four sessions, and will meet Jianna Salinas to open raceday as he looks for his third win in what’s been a phenomenal season.

“It’s exciting to start from the number one spot,” Johnson said. “We’re preparing the right way and when you get No. 1 you’ve prepared the best way possible. If we prepare and we all do our job, we’ll all love the results. I have so much respect for every competitor and I’m glad they’re all here, but at the same time my focus is on my guys and how I drive the motorcycle on Sunday.”

Defending world champ Matt Smith qualified second with a 6.772, setting the track speed record on Saturday with a pass of 200.83. Sampey will open eliminations from third after going 6.809 at 197.74.

FRIDAY

Points leader Johnson made his first pass count on Friday in Pro Stock Motorcycle, going to the No. 1 position with a run of 6.756 at 198.44 on his Mac Rak Suzuki. Johnson is on track to clinch the top spot for the third time this season, which would be by far a career-best in a single season for the veteran. He entered the weekend 17 points ahead of Angelle Sampey and made a strong run to get going. Johnson has led at every stop in the Countdown as he seeks his first world championship and third win this season.

Defending world champ Matt Smith, who is 30 points out of first, is currently second after his run of 6.772 at 200.83, setting the track speed record. He also earned the $1,500 bonus check from Texas Motorplex after making the quickest run of the second qualifying session under the lights. Sampey is third after running 6.809 at 197.74.
