According to official videographer Jimmy Biggs, he has the best job on the grounds during each event for the Tulsa-based Frankenstein Engine Dynamics Mid-West Pro Mod Series (MWPMS).
"It's a labor of love; it really is," Biggs insists. "I consider it a privilege and an honor to tell the stories of the race teams and sponsors that make the Mid-West Pro Mod Series happen. And everybody has a cool story. With this whole industry it's like that because everybody comes from different backgrounds and has different experiences. Plus, everyone knows 99.5-percent of all drag racers are great guys and my experience with the Mid-West Series absolutely confirms that."

Blue collar Funny Car sensation Tim Wilkerson has a lot to be grateful for 2018, and even more to look forward to in 2019.
Wilkerson reaffirmed his commitment to the Ford Motor Company for next season, extending the working partnership to a decade.
"We're really excited about the new Ford Mustang bodies," said Wilkerson, a ten-time winner with the Mustang body. "We're hearing that [Ford] should be coming out the middle of December or near the first of the year. We'll get one of the first ones, and then it'll go to [longtime chassis builder] Murf McKinney to mount, then we'll send it off to have it painted. All of that takes time, so we may not have it before we do our pre-season testing, but we're excited."
