When the Pro Top Outlaw Series begins its 6th season this year, the racing action is expected to be stronger than ever.  New sponsors, new members, and new tracks have been secured in the off-season and they will all come together to put on a show which is unlike anything else offered today.  The series, which is a step up from Top Dragster and not quite Top Alcohol, is comprised of dragsters, altereds, and funny cars, either blower or nitrous, all racing heads-up against one another.  And on May 12th of this year, PTO will break new ground when the season opening Bluegrass Nationals will be filmed by Inside Drag Racing with Bob Frey announcing the event.

“The members help each other.  We’ve got blowers and nitrous; dragsters, altereds, and funny cars.  Because the tracks can get tricky, the fastest car doesn’t always win.  No dial-ins, no lifting before the lights, no throttle stops and it doesn’t take a years pay to get into it.  Isn’t that the way drag racing is supposed to be,” said Ron Bales, President of PTO. 

The series currently runs primarily on the east coast but has been known to have events as far west as Texas over the years.  This year PTO currently has 8 events on the schedule, but that is subject to change as more events materialize.  And due to the rising popularity of PTO, they are going to have two separate 8 eight car fields at 5 of those events.  This will give the 16 quickest cars during qualifying the chance to run on race day and give the fans a chance to watch two exciting events in one day.  . 

PTO offers many racers who would normally be limited to Top Dragster bracket racing a chance to run their cars heads-up.  The series has a contingency program in place as well as payouts for each event.  This could not be possible without the support from the following sponsors, Fowler Engines, Flatout Gaskets, Stroud Safety, Renegade, Mickey Thompson Tires, R&R Racing Products, Performance Torque Converters, Aaron Sipple Engineering, Handi Hauler, No Limit Race Cars, Vickery Speed Shop and RWR Motorsports.

As PTO continues to grow they are looking for new members to join the organization.  To find out more about the Pro Top Outlaw Series please click on the link below
