Stotz Racing report - AMA/Prostar Elmer Trett Nationals; Team plans to run Honda’s CBR1000RR in Richmond

The second round of the 2006 AMA/Prostar Drag Racing National Championship rolled into Commerce, Ga., for the Elmer Trett Nationals, April 1-2, and Stotz Racing looked to extend the dominance that the team displayed in Pro Street competition at the BikeWeek Nationals one month earlier. In that event, Kent Stotz reeled off an incredible run of five consecutive 200 mph passes on his Honda Rider’s Club of America (HRCA)-sponsored turbocharged CBR1100XX and the four-time champion set and reset the record books five times.

In round one of eliminations on Sunday in Commerce, Stotz set the quickest and fastest ET of the round, 7.662 seconds at 194.30 mph, but he was later disqualified due the incorrect placement of weight on the fairing bracket. “It was a challenging weekend for us,” Stotz said. “We had difficulty gaining traction all weekend. We worked with our Hyper Pro Suspension, set low ET of the first round and then the DQ took us out of the competition. We’ve appealed the ruling because the rule as it is written is unclear as to where it is legal to add the weight.” Stotz expects AMA/Prostar to issue its decision later this week.

Regardless of the outcome, Stotz is focusing on the next round at Virginia Motorsports Park on May 6-7. “We’re not looking back. We’ve got a championship to win for Honda and that’s what we’re going to do.”

Drag racing fans will be pleased to know that Stotz will be competing on the Honda CBR1000RR for the first time in the next round. “We’ve been developing the new Honda all winter,” said Stotz. “Our JE Pistons and Falicon rods are now in the RR motor with Star Racing’s head and we plan to dyno the bike soon. The new Super Street class ran a 32-bike ladder here at Commerce and I’m confident that the CBR1000RR will do very well in Prostar’s newest entry-level class for street riders. Of course, we plan to run the RR in Pro Street as well.”

Stotz recognized the team’s newest sponsor, Scorpion Helmets. “Scorpion has not only improved our game by not fogging up at night in qualifying, they have also gotten behind our sport by becoming a sponsor of AMA/Prostar drag racing and are now the Official Helmet of AMA/Prostar.” Stotz Racing’s other sponsors are Pro Honda Oils and Chemicals, Velocity Racing Turbo Systems, Joe Rocket, Pingel Enterprises, RC Components, Air-Tech Streamlining, BST Wheels and Schaumburg Honda.
