Matt August 2010, like the second or third outing at Cecil County Dragway. Very First pass drag racing, See above was 13.55, the bike needed some basic tuning. This vodeo was before any tuning and Matt’s still learning a lot.

    Matt Ended the “season” (work, school, and weather) with a best of 12.64, real improvement from starting at 13.55 less than 50 passes ago. Still a lot to learn, consistency and technique come with practice! Good stuff and looking forward to the spring, the rider and bike have a lot of potential!
