Michalek Brothers Racing Locked and Loaded for a Showdown at 2022 Finale in Dallas
First time competing at Texas Motorplex
Michalek Brothers Racing heads to Texas for their final race of the 2022 season at the Texas Stampede of Speed.
Michalek Brothers Racing (MBR) is heading to the Lonestar State to close out their final event of the 2022 season at the Texas Stampede of Speed. MBR will square off against a stacked field of 23 of the nation’s best Top Alcohol Dragsters and it will be the team’s first time competing at the Texas Motorplex located just outside of Dallas.
“2022 has exceeded expectations both on and off the track and we are prepared to close out our best year yet on a high note,” said Kyle. “We are very excited to build upon the performance that we found this year and try a few new things during this event. We are also looking forward to hosting a new group of guests from Fund That Flip and talking to Texas race fans about American energy independence and the mission of The Empowerment Alliance.”
MBR has enjoyed a historically good track record in their 5 previous events within the Texas state lines. Kyle collected two “Ironmen” having won twice in San Antonio as a crew member for Mark Thomas’ IHRA Top Alcohol Funny Car, and also posted a strong semi-final finish in Houston driving the Dreher Motosports Top Alcohol Dragster. Corey was part of two runner-up finishes in San Antonio, also as a crew member for Thomas.
This weekend the team looks to reclaim that same magic to close out their 2022 season on a high note. The pre-race event schedule has MBR hitting the track for two qualifying runs on Friday at 11:30AM and 4:30PM. Saturday’s action cranks up to a notch with what is sure to be an intense final qualifying session at 9:30AM followed by the first two rounds of eliminations at 2:00PM and 6:15PM. The four remaining cars will settle the score on Sunday with the semi-finals scheduled to be run at 1:30PM and the finals at 4:00PM.
“As far as preparations are concerned, we were about as aggressive as we could be these past 6 weeks since Indy,” said Corey. “We got some of the results that we’ve been after in the bellhousing for the first time really since Gainesville during our last 2 runs at the U.S Nationals and we went all-in on making sure the inventory in the trailer is set up to give us the most predictable feedback possible. The work that Kyle, Adrian, and the rest of the team did on all other areas of the car is hopefully going to give us an opportunity to run as hard as we have all year. If things pan out the way that we hope they will, we will give ourselves a shot to contend with some of the best cars in the country. We’re ready.”
