IHRA Team Makes it to NHRA Finals at Houston Raceway Park
Bayou Boyz Slate Cummings made his NHRA 2007 debut at Houston Raceway Park for the Lucas Oil Division Series Race. Backed by his Moser Engineering Racing Team, Cummings added a runner-up finish in Super Stock to his resume. He has a successful record in the bracket racing arena driving his Moser Engineering Pontiac Grand Am.

At Houston, Cummings faced five rounds of tough competition and a final round match-up with contender Jerry Emmons. The battle ended quickly when Cummings lit the red-light by .001, handing Emmons an automatic win.

“It was a heartbreaking race,” said Larry Cummings, father of Bayou Boyz Racers, Slate and Britt. “It was also a relief, because after racing in the NHRA for two years we made it to the finals. It was a huge boost in confidence for our team. We have a good record in the IHRA and we’re going after a good record in the NHRA.”
In addition to his runner-up finish in Super Stock, Slate Cummings advanced to the fourth round in Super Comp. Mechanical problems hit hard and hurt his run with eventual runner-up Tommy Costales.
“We put up a good weekend all around,” said Britt Cummings. “Slate went a bunch of rounds and earned some valuable points. Overall, I’m content with where the team is headed. At this point last year we were upside down with our engine program and it took half the season to get everything straight. Now we’re where we need to be in every class that we run.”
Slate Cummings recorded a huge 186.78 mph at the 8.90 index in his Moser Super Comp Dragster. The teams Camaro also ran a 10.45 (11.65 Index) with Britt Cummings at the wheel. The family affair continued as patriarch Larry Cummings recorded an 11.31 in his 1968 Camaro (12.45 Index).
The Bayou Boyz use K&N Engineering products on all their vehicles. “Our K&N Oil and Air Filters are very dependable,” said Larry Cummings. “We’ve never had a problem at any racing event with K&N.”
The Cummings Motorsports Team have a weekend off before the second NHRA Lucas Oil Division Event on the NHRA Division 4 Schedule March 2-4. They will race at No Problem Raceway in Belle Rose, Louisiana.
