Sept 20 - 22  2013
The Direct Transport / Water One / Color by Woz / Racing Team made the 1400 mile journey to Dallas Texas
for The the Texas Nationals only to have Mother Nature rain out the first day of qualifying on Friday. In the
first round of qualifying on Saturday,  Mark ran a soft 5.68 @ 257 mph which put him in the #9 spot. In the 2nd
and final round of qualifying the car stepped up two hundredths to a 5.66 also @ 257 mph, which left Mark in
the #10 spot.  Because of the rain we lost our third qualifying attempt and went into the first round on
Saturday night. Our first round opponent was Doug Gordon who had qualified #7 with a 5.62. We improved  
three hundredths to a 5.63 @ 258 mph, but it was not enough to beat Doug who matched his qualifying time
with another 5.62 @ 256 mph. Although we lost in the first round we continue to improve with help from our
tuning consultant Adam Rhoades. So far this year this year we have run our best E.T. and mph 5.584 @
258.91. There are 2 races left this year  and we would like to put
The Woz in the winners circle.
