Raced in the last Street Fighter of the year this past Saturday. Had an issue with gas cap venting. No clean passes all day but I did manage to qualify number one and got a first round bye. Ended up going red in round two.
Also ran a new best MPH in the 1/8th. Vent issue caused it to run out of fuel in 4th gear...

Done for the season here, Only made it to three races this year. Had a noise in the engine at the track a few weeks ago so parked it rather than take any chances. Turned out the pinion race had started working out and was hitting the cams/pump gear. Fixed it for the final race and went red first round. Going to park this combo for the winter and start a new build. Thinking if going to the 90” was good bigger will be better... Right??? Good luck to everyone still racing.

Looking forward to the new build!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you going to spill some beans on the cubic inch or make us wait?!

Are you running with box bikes or no box currently? And next year?

120cu. big tire bracket bike. NHRA division one rules, no box. Looking for 145+ mph and a 3.3 or better back half. That’s the goal, we’ll see what happens. Lots of unknowns for us.

Out second rd with a yuuuuge red. Max didn’t have anyone to race today so he took the trophy. Sealed up the season points victories in jr bike and trophy bike, Max cut a 10.2x, a new pb on the blast. We’re done for the year here.
