Stotz Racing leaves Bikeweek Nationals with literbike milestone.

Honda Rider’s Club of America-sponsored (HRCA) Stotz Racing showed the motorcycle drag-racing world that the team’s CBR1000RR is a legitimate title contender for the Pro Street Championship at the opening round of the AMA/Prostar Drag Racing Championship at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Valdosta, Ga., March 3-4.

Piloted by Stotz Racing’s Glenn Stickels, the turbocharged, 460-plus horsepower Honda finished third overall and, in the process, became the quickest Pro Street liter bike in the field with a qualifying ET of just 7.47 seconds. The bike is already the current 1000 ProStreet top-speed holder with a terminal velocity of 194 miles per hour.

Team owner Kent Stotz credited an aggressive off-season development program for the team’s showing. “We’re using a redesigned JE piston and, working with two-time national championship crew chief Mark Harrell on his mobile dyno facility, we cranked out 21 more horsepower than last fall on the same 30 psi of boost. It’s reliable power, too, due in part to the efficient water injected Velocity Racing turbo system”

Stotz, who was injured in testing in January, got a last minute clean bill of health and jumped on his two-time championship winning CBR1100XX to qualify second and compete in the final. “Now that I’m healthy, I’ll be running the CBR1000RR in the Pro Street class for the rest of the season and, thanks to the HRCA, Glenn will ride a second CBR1000RR to contest the Super Street class. This is a very good start for us and our CBR1000RRs will have a good shot at winning for the rest of the year.”
