The weather was threatening, but that never stops the Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Pro Mod
Series. Mid-West Pro Mods rolled into Tulsa Raceway Park on Thursday, before qualifying on Friday. To
say the action was tight all weekend might be a huge understatement. Points battles, Owner vs. Owner,
Rain, and Lumberjacking were just some of what we saw over the weekend.
Throwdown in T-Town is one of the largest events the Tulsa Raceway Park holds all season long, and it is something that the owners Todd Martin & Keith Haney always look forward to. The fans are the best in the country, and were lined up out the gate trying to get in while MWPMS was having their regular Friday night driver meeting.
“Home really is where the heart is, and my home is Tulsa Raceway Park. Todd and I do our best to
always make sure that our fans, racers, and media are treated with the utmost respect. They are there
to see a show and that’s exactly what we try and give them”, stated series Founder Keith Haney.
“I love when we have the opportunity to race at home. Others say that we have the best staff and put
on amazing events. Both Keith and I are absolutely humbled by the support the MWPMS racers, crew,
and media have for TRP. I really believe that we have the best fans in the world and cannot thank them
enough for their continued support of the Throwdown in T-Town”, stated Tulsa Raceway Park Co-Owner

Maddux. In Tulsa, it was obvious that the Mustang of Aaron Wells was going to be the one to beat. He
was running in the mid to high 60’s all weekend. Aaron buzz sawed through the competition, and then
had to line up against who is arguably the most popular star competing in the MWPMS, none other than
last years Champion Jonas Aleshire. Jonas was a lumberjack on the tree throughout the competition. His
reaction times were .004, .009, .001, and a .010. You didn’t read that wrong, Jonas was cutting down the
tree with more consistency than we have ever seen in a single event at the MWPMS. So, when Aaron
and Jonas lined up in the finals, it was Jonas off the line first, but Aaron had the ET, which lit the
