has competed in; Promod, Quick Rod, Super Comp, Bracket Racing,
and Top Sportsman.

Clash in Las Vegas.
Tindle brings years of success as a site contractor and has a
long history of success in the sport. This past 2009 season, he

IHRA debut. His second 2009 career victory came when he won the

Tindle has a heavy heart. In 2008, he and the Tindle Racing dedicated
