Stroud Safety Named Official Safety Gear for $50K Elite 16 Event

TULSA, OK (Sep. 18, 2018) -- Elite Motorsports and the Mid-West Pro Mod Series (MWPMS) are pleased to
announce Stroud Safety has been named the official safety gear supplier for the inaugural Elite 16 $50,000-to-win Pro Mod event Nov. 1-3, at the Texas Motorplex, near Dallas.


"There's nothing more important in drag racing than safety and Stroud Safety has been a leader in the field for more than two decades," Elite 16 promoter Keith Haney said. "Everything about this Elite 16 race is top-notch and having Stroud Safety on board is just one more example of the first-rate support we're seeing from the racing community."

Based in Oklahoma City, Stroud Safety is a leading manufacturer and supplier of parachutes, seatbelts, fire suppression systems, engine diapers, ballistic blankets and fire suits, among several other drag racing safety items. 

Stroud Safety representative MJ ("Everybody knows me as just MJ."), said that as a longtime supporter of Haney's MWPMS, it just made sense for Stroud to also join the Elite 16 sponsor list.


"I think that Keith is a real showman when it comes to rolling out the red carpet," she said. "He's really good at showing appreciation to sponsors and supporting us in all that we do. So I thought, why not just keep riding a winning horse?

"Plus, I just love Pro Mods," MJ added. "In fact, the license plate on my car says 'Pro Mod,' so I really am a big fan of the class and the racers. They're a great group of guys. Most of them are middle-class racers and those tend to be our core customers."

MJ said she plans to attend the Elite 16 event and can't wait to see who hoists the $50,000 winner's check in the Motorplex winner's circle. 

"I'm looking forward to it. I'm hoping to see some friends there--and if not, I'll make some new ones! It's always fun to have some fun at the end of the year."

The Elite 16 will officially open with two rounds of qualifying Thursday evening, Nov. 1, with a whopping six additional rounds of qualifying scheduled throughout Friday, and eliminations set to begin at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Adding to the exclusivity of the event, spectators will be limited to only 500, with tickets available for purchase in advance via a link on the MWPMS Facebook page and MidWestProModSeries.com. However, Chad Reynolds of Bangshift.com will be on site all weekend long providing a live online feed of all the action free of charge to fans at home.

Haney Bringing New Approach to NHRA Pro Mod at St. Louis

TULSA, OK (Sep. 13, 2018) -- A bold, red-white-and-blue wrap prominently displays Keith Haney's unique “You Know My Name” catch phrase on the doors of his nitrous-boosted Summit Racing Equipment Pro Mod Camaro
and the Tulsa-based new car dealer recognizes his confident, outgoing personality and willingness to verbally mix it up may sometimes rub a few competitors the wrong way. 

After making his debut in the NHRA E3 Spark Plugs Pro Mod Series as a teammate to three-time series champion and eventual race winner Rickie Smith this May in Topeka, Ks., Haney says he's adopting a different approach Sep. 21-23, for the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals at Gateway Motorsports Park.

"I hope to go out and take care of business like I have in every other series I've raced in," he says. "Everywhere else I've talked smack and done okay, but in Topeka I didn't quite back it up so I've got a different outlook going into St. Louis. Chris Blair and his staff do a great job and I love that track and usually do pretty good there, too, so that's what I'm going to focus on."

A veteran driver who also owns, promotes and competes in the all-eighth-mile Mid-West Pro Mod Series, Haney laid down a solid 5.90-seconds pass at 245.60 miles per hour over the quarter mile at Topeka, easily representing the quickest and fastest he’d ever been. Still, it wasn't quite enough to keep him in the 16-car raceday field.

"We had a decent race in Topeka. I learned a lot and actually had a faster car than Rickie to the eighth (mile), but
a little driver error just slowed us down," Haney admits. "But I know what I did wrong and we're going to do a little testing the week before St. Louis. With the help of Rickie and my crew chief, Brandon Switzer, I feel very confident we'll be racing on Sunday this time around."

Unfortunately, though, Haney's busy lifestyle will force him to miss No Mercy 9, a major eight-mile event for drag-radial cars presented by promoter Donald "Duck" Long that he'd planned to attend Sep. 27-30, at South Georgia Motorsports Park.

"We have a brand-new Honda dealership that's about to open and a new Chevy store we're building; my daughter just went off to college; I'm coaching 6th-grade football; just bought some property and about to start building a new shop and house, so I've got a whole lot going on, a lot to do," he explains. 

"I'll also be racing in the NHRA Pro Mod race down at the Texas Motorplex; the Mid-West Series World Finals is coming later in October at our track in Tulsa, and then of course we have the Elite 16 $50,000-to-win race back at
the Motorplex at the start of November. I mean, Duck does a great job and I love his races and the fans in Georgia have been just unbelievable to me, so I really hate that I'm going to miss this one, but I've just got so much going on right now that something's gotta' give."

Following the St. Louis NHRA event and with continuing support from Summit Racing, Strange Engineering, Lucas Oil and Kryptonite Kustomz, Haney will conclude his inaugural three-race NHRA campaign with Rickie Smith Racing Oct. 5-7, in the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Tx.

Chilly Willy Sponsors Qualifying for $50K-to-Win Elite 16 Pro Mod Event



TULSA, OK (Sep. 8, 2018) – Just qualifying for the inaugural $50,000-to-win Elite 16 event presented by Elite Motorsports and the Tulsa-based Mid-West Pro Mod Series (MWPMS) is already guaranteed to be one very cool accomplishment. Thanks to Chilly Willys Engine Coolers, each of the 16 quickest Pro Mods at the famous Texas Motorplex Nov. 1-3, will be known as a Chilly Willys Qualifier. Additionally, Jim Phillips Collision Center of Evansville, Il., will be paying a bonus to the number-one starter.  

“When Keith (Haney, Elite 16 organizer and promoter) came to me with the idea, I was all for it right from the start. I like to support guys who give back to the sport, who know what it takes to run these cars, and Keith is definitely someone who knows all about that,” Chilly Willys owner Brian Shaw said. “He’s paying a good purse, which is few and far between in Pro Mod racing, and I really appreciate that. So I’m glad to help out.”
Based in Moseley, Va., Chilly Willys builds a compact engine cooling unit that manufactures and recirculates its own cold water, to as low as 39 degrees Fahrenheit without any need for ice. It requires only water and a 110-volt power source to work between rounds, with a digital L.E.D. display making it easy to preset a desired water temperature. A single Chilly Willys unit works quickly enough to individually cool even a multi-car team between rounds.  

“A cooler engine allows you to run a little more timing, burn a little more fuel, and the cooler an engine is, it lessens the detonation,” Shaw explained. “We can cool the water down to 39 degrees, which is cooler than anyone would need right now, but you can set it to anywhere from 39 to 150 degrees, wherever you want.”
Shaw said he decided to start building the Chilly Willys cooler seven years ago after growing tired of spending up to $10 per bag of ice at race tracks just to cool his car’s engine between rounds. “We were using maybe 20 or 30 bags, sometimes more, so I was spending up to $400 per race just on ice and then you had to go find somewhere at the track where you could dump all the water when it melted. I just thought there had to be a better, cheaper way.”
Jerry Bickel Race Cars, which will be on hand at the Motorplex during the Elite 16, and Sonny’s Racing Engines are Chilly Willys’s biggest distributors. In addition to several MWPMS regulars, Shaw now counts NHRA Pro Mod and Pro Stock, PDRA Pro Boost and Pro Nitrous, NMCA Pro Mod, and several regional Pro Mod and Sportsman racers among his loyal customers.
“I have a Chilly Willys for my two race cars and it just makes cooling down between rounds so much faster and easier,” said Haney, who plans to compete in the Elite 16 with “Notorious,” his nitrous-fed 2014 Camaro Pro Mod. “It really is a great product and I’m looking forward to being a Chilly Willys Qualifier.”   
New for this year with Chilly Willys is an integrated transmission chiller. Shaw said he always offered a separate transmission chilling unit, but new versions of his product incorporate it within the approximately two-foot-square cube. Models specifically designed for automatic transmissions with nitromethane motors and automatics with alcohol-burning engines for blower and turbocharged combinations are also now available.
“The old transmission chiller was quite large and made everything quite a bit more expensive, but now with it in the box it can be made a lot less expensive while still being a top-quality product and still able to easily fit under a counter,” he said.
Despite winning the season-opening PDRA event in North Carolina with veteran driver James Hancock III behind the wheel of his nitrous-boosted ’69 Camaro, Shaw said they unfortunately will not be Chilly Willys Qualifiers this year.
“It’s a little too far for us at the end of the year … and besides, Keith Haney does not want us coming out there and whipping his butt!” he added, laughing. “But seriously, I want Keith to get all the credit he deserves for putting this race together. I appreciate it and I hope everyone else does, too. For someone to put his neck out there and pay this kind of purse to Pro Mod racers is just awesome.”
The Elite 16 will officially open with two rounds of qualifying Thursday evening, Nov. 1, with a whopping six additional rounds of qualifying scheduled throughout Friday, and eliminations set to begin at 10 a.m. Saturday. Adding to the exclusivity of the event, spectators will be limited to only 500, with tickets available for purchase in advance via a link on the MWPMS Facebook page and MidWestProModSeries.com.

Haney Unfazed by Setbacks at St. Louis MWPMS Event

TULSA, OK (Aug. 8, 2018) – The trouble started not long after Keith Haney’s team hauler headed out of Tulsa bound for St. Louis and the Frankenstein Engine Dynamics Mid-West Pro Mod Series (MWPMS) event at Gateway Motorsports Park. Rolling northeast on I-44, approaching the halfway point of their 400-mile trip, a tire suddenly let go on the trailer, forcing an emergency stop at the next available exit in tiny Mount Vernon, Missouri.
“We got so damn lucky, we get off the exit and boom, there's a tire place right there,” recalled Haney, a veteran MWPMS racer, as well as owner and promoter of the series. “It would have taken us probably two or three hours to change that tire ourselves, but we go in, they tell us where to park, jack it up, change the tire, and in less than 30 minutes we’re back in business.
“So I ask, ‘How much do I owe you?’ and they answer with, ‘Nothing, you owe us nothing.’ It turns out the guys there follow me on Facebook and the manager’s friend races at Tulsa Raceway Park, the track I own with Todd Martin, so I'm just stunned,” Haney admitted. “It ended up we paid them with swag. We gave everyone in the place Keith Haney Racing hats. So, Southwest Fleet Service in Mount Vernon, thank you! And anyone ever in the area needing tire service, I can’t recommend them enough; they did a great job, too.”
Unfortunately, the mishaps didn’t end there. Shortly after arriving at Gateway and setting up in the pits, Haney was lying near the back of the trailer hooking up an air line when a crewmember accidentally lowered the trailer’s heavy lift gate on his right foot.
“My guys were lowering down the golf cart and I had the front part of my foot just far enough under so that it got crushed,” he said. “It was swollen immediately, looked like a football, so of course I went to the coach, put ice on it and kept it elevated, but within a couple of hours I was convinced to go to the hospital.
“And I want to thank everyone at Gateway Regional Medical Center in Granite City, IL. I got the best service I've ever had any freakin’ hospital I've ever been to,” Haney continues. “I walked in and was back in a room in less than 15 minutes. The doctors were funny, they did X-rays on my foot, and they checked me out while I was still in my room.”
Luckily, the X-rays revealed no broken bones for Haney, but with significant tissue damage beneath the skin, a prescription for pain control and elevated rest was in order. That meant he missed Thursday night’s opening round of qualifying, but by Friday afternoon Haney was feeling better, the medication had worn off and he felt ready to try on his Stand 21 driving shoe.
“It wasn’t easy getting it on, but once I did it felt just as tight as the compression bandage it replaced,” Haney says. “After about 45 minutes I tested out walking on it and then got in the car to see if I could work the gas pedal. When that worked I told my guys to get the car ready ‘cause we were going racing!”   
However, transmission troubles in both of Haney’s qualifying attempts left him outside what turned out to be the quickest 16-car field in MWPMS history with a 3.78 bump spot. With only Saturday’s final qualifying session available the
pressure to perform was intense, but Haney managed only a 3.80 that relegated him to the unique MWPMS Slammers class fornon-qualifiers that also allows buybacks for qualifiers eliminated from round one of Pro Mod racing.
“I’ll admit it was disappointing, but we just faced one issue after another and it eventually caught up to us,” Haney said.
In round one of Slammers competition Haney’s nitrous-injected 2014 Camaro
posted a 3.81 pass to beat Michael Bradley. A much-needed bye run followed for round two and though again running only 3.82, Haney’s team “figured something out” and made adjustments for a semi-final meeting with Chad Javers and his supercharged ’67 Mustang.
The two cars left the line just one-thousandth of a second apart, with Javers
reaching the finish line 660 feet later in 3.767 seconds at 197 mph to Haney’s 3.769 at nearly 201 for a three-thousandths margin of victory.
“It was too close to call from inside the car, but that was one of the best drag races of the entire weekend,” Haney said. “He had me down low, but I was reeling him in and just ran out of track. So, a semi-finals finish in Slammers, not a great result but at least we finally got the car figured out.
“Plus, we ended up leaving with no carnage, nothing bad other than what we kind of went through at first, and we all got home safe. In fact, not one car even got close to the wall all weekend, which is a credit to the track and prep by Kurt Johnson with VP Fuels traction compound.
“Overall I’m happy with the Mid-West Series race in St. Louis,” Haney insisted. “I didn’t do all that well personally, but the series in general is doing really well. Our sponsors are happy; our racers are happy; we had our biggest entry list in Pro Mod ever with 38 cars; 61 different drivers have entered at least one Mid-West Series race so far this year and we’ve had six different drivers win in six races, with five of them in blower cars and one nitrous, but nitrous cars have been runner-up in five of those finals, too, so we’re showing good parity. Things are looking good,” Haney said.
“And we’re going to finish our year with the Elite 16, a new $50,000-to-win Pro Mod race we’re putting on with help from Elite Motorsports at the Texas Motorplex using Mid-West Pro Mod Series rules. But it’s not a points race; it’s just a big, end-of-season special event that’s going to feature the baddest eighth-mile Pro Mod racers from all over the country. It’s really going to set the bar for this type of event going forward.”

Haney Unfazed by Breakage at MWPMS Event in Topeka

TULSA, OK (July 6, 2018) – Keith Haney enjoyed a good, solid start to his race weekend June 29-30 at Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, KS, but a few broken bolts on race day cost him a likely final-round appearance and possible win in the Frankenstein Engine Dynamics Mid-West Pro Mod Series (MWPMS) event.
After 20 cars completed four rounds of qualifying, Haney and “Notorious,” his nitrous-boosted 2014 Camaro, placed fifth overall with a 3.89-seconds pass at 193.13 mph.
“That was the quickest run of all the nitrous entries on the grounds, so we were pretty proud of that,” said Haney, who also owns and promotes the all-eighth-mile MWPMS. “Brandon Switzer couldn’t be there in person but he made some
great tuning calls over the phone from Virginia and my co-crew chief, Brandon Pesz, he handled everything at the track in addition to racing his own car to the semi finals.”
Haney opened eliminations with a 3.98 to 4.19 win over Chad Javers and his supercharged ’67 Mustang, and then made a 4.43 solo pass in the quarter finals after Tommy Cunningham was unable to make the call to stage with another blown ’67 Mustang. Unfortunately, Haney’s off-the-pace pass reflected his own mechanical woes as several bolts sheared off between the flywheel and torque converter.
“The car was running consistent every pass, but some really hot temperatures and marginal conditions on the race track made it hard to get after it, so we were experiencing a whole lot of tire shake. Not so bad I had to pedal it, but definitely bad enough to hurt things,” Haney explained.
“It was the same thing that happened to us down in Valdosta (GA) earlier this year with “Enigma,” my drag radial car, but this time we just didn’t have enough
turnaround time to get it fixed. It’s a shame, too, because we were supposed to run Jim Sackuvich in the semis and he shook pretty bad so we would’ve been in the finals with even just a halfway decent run.”
Regardless, after missing the previous two MWPMS events due to business demands, Haney moved up a couple of positions on the Pro Mod points list and is looking forward to the next MWPMS race Aug. 2-4, at Gateway Motorsports Park, near St. Louis.
“Going to the finals would’ve helped me a ton, but this race really tightened things up,” Haney observed. “Aaron Wells was in the top five, but he didn’t qualify and who would’ve thought that? Then Jonas Aleshire who was second overall, still is, but he qualifies number one and loses in the first round, and Ron Muenks, our points leader, he loses second round, so that keeps things pretty tight. And Jason Hamstra, he wins the race from the number-two start and breaks into the top 10, so he could be a player if he keeps that up with three races still to go.
“And don’t count me out, either,” Haney added. “St. Louis, is one of my favorite
tracks and I’m looking forward to winning there. These guys may have caught a break when our stuff broke in Topeka, but it’s all gonna’ be fixed and ready to turn on the win lights at Gateway. I promise you, this is far from over; those guys better be ready for a fight.”

MWPMS Heads to Topeka; Prepares for Season-Ending $50K-to-win Race

TULSA, OK, (June 22, 2018) – The outrageous eighth-mile warriors of the Frankenstein Engine Dynamics Mid-West Pro Mod Series (MWPMS) are ready to take on Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, KS, June 29-30, as part of the track’s 30th anniversary celebration that also features diesel and bracket racing, plus a big Saturday-night fireworks show.

With four of eight scheduled MWPMS events already in the books, Ron Muenks, winner of the most recent MWPMS race at St. Louis late last month, holds the 2018 Pro Mod points lead. Not far behind is Jonas Aleshire, who won at Tulsa early in May, with Jim Sackuvich, Todd Martin and Aaron Wells rounding out the top five. Defending class champion Keith Haney fell out of the top-10 after business demands forced him to miss the prior two events, but as MWPMS owner and promoter he remains excited about the coming Topeka tilt.
“This is a big race for everyone,” Haney says. “We’re heading into the second half of the season, so the end will be in sight sooner than you think. This race in Topeka represents a chance for the guys up front to put some distance on the competition, but it’s still not too late for someone further back—like me—to put a big come-from-behind charge together. Topeka better be ready for some fireworks—and not just on Saturday night!”
The event also could be significant for competitors because it will count toward earning a discounted entry fee for a huge, $50,000-to-win Pro Mod race Haney plans to stage this November after the official MWPMS season concludes.
“One of the biggest things for this race is if you're a Mid-West Pro Mod Series racer and you've entered four or more races this year, your entry fee is going to be less. We want to give back to those supporting the series the most,” Haney explains. “That said, on the other hand I don't want to exclude anyone. I mean, maybe you live on the other side of the country but you’d still be interested in racing for $50,000; that just means your admission will be a little bit higher. Not ridiculous, but it's going to be higher because you’ll be racing for the biggest Pro Mod purse next to Wes Buck’s World Series of Pro Mod race, which is an invitation-only event; this is not.”
Haney says he’s already lined up a major sponsor for the $50K race and there will be a $15,000-to win secondary race for those who fail to qualify for the 16-car main event. He also points out this will be a Pro Mods-only event, so track
preparation will be geared solely toward making their big, meaty slicks dig in. Negotiations to finalize the venue continue, he adds, with more announcements to follow.
“Our Mid-West Pro-Mod sponsors, our marketing partners, our racers, fans, tracks, even the media members who come out to photograph and video us have all been so good to us all year long that we just want to have this big, end-of-season blowout to say thank you,” Haney says. “We really appreciate the support and that’s why this race in Topeka holds so much importance. And with four races left in the season it’s not too late for anyone to still earn discounted admission to the $50,000 race.”
Haney stresses, however, that to qualify for the discount a team’s attendance does not have to be at consecutive events. Someone who entered just the season opener so far could just attend three of the four remaining races, or after attending two events in the first half of the schedule, they would need only two more in the second half to receive the lower entry fee.
“Of course we hope everyone attends all four remaining events, but as a racer myself I know that’s not always possible,” says Haney, acknowledging even he needs at least two more MWPMS appearances this year to earn the discount. “We just want to reward those who support what we’re doing with the Mid-West Pro Mods.”
For the Heartland Park event, Mid-West Pro Mod Series testing will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, followed by a test-n-tune session for other classes. MWPMS competitors will enter their first round of official qualifying at 7 p.m., with round two following at 9 p.m. to close out the day. Round three of qualifying is set for 10:30 on Saturday morning with the fourth and final session set for 12:30 p.m. Pro Mod eliminations are scheduled for 5 p.m., 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9:30 Saturday night.    
Following this weekend’s event at Topeka, the Frankenstein Engine Dynamics Mid-West Pro Mod Series will return to action with its full slate of classes Aug. 2-4, at Gateway Motorsports Park, near St. Louis.
