During the off season the Pro Top Outlaw organization has been working hard to ensure that 2008 will be their best season yet.  Two time series champion, Phil Esz, announced at the end of the 2007 season that he would be stepping out of the driver’s seat and taking over the responsibilities of running the organization.  The series, based out of Cincinnati, offers something for everyone with an array of dragsters, funny cars, altereds and pro mods all running heads up against one another during competition.

Over the winter, the organization is excited to announce they have teamed up with Goodson which will be the series title sponsor.  Dave Monyhan, national sales manger at Goodson, is coming on board as well to be the official announcer.  And the infamous, Nitro Joe Jackson will be on hand at each event serving as the Goodson PTO event coordinator.  In addition, the Pro Top Outlaws will have a sponsor support trailer at each event provided by W&M Enterprises, Inc.  The trailer will be equipped with official Pro Top Outlaw hero cards, designed by McSnyder Designs, that you can have signed by your favorite driver, souvenir t-shirts, literature on the series and various sponsors, as well as other items at each event.

The heads-up series which boasts two 8-car fields will continue with this format for 2008.  Similar to last year, the Spitzer Top Guns will showcase the quickest 8 cars after qualifying. The American Colorscans Super Eliminator class will be comprised of the 4 fastest Pro Mods and qualifiers 9 thru 12 of the open wheeled cars, with one of each meeting in the final round.  This should make for some really exciting competitive racing and put on a spectacular show for the fans.

Each series will square off for the first time March 22nd thru 23rd in Timberlake, NC at Roxboro Dragway.

The Pro Top Outlaws will race in Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, and North Carolina while keeping within a 300 mile radius of the home base in Cincinnati, Ohio.  During the off season, there have been rule changes made providing more opportunities than ever for racers to get involved with this growing organization, so be sure to check out the complete list of rules at to see where your combination fits into the picture.
