Stotz Racing Tops the Charts at Spring Nationals: HRCA-Sponsored CBR1000RR sets AMA/Prostar Pro Street ET Record, Stotz Leads the Series

Four-time national motorcycle drag racing champion Kent Stotz surged into the lead of the 2007 AMA/Prostar Pro Street Drag Racing Championship this past weekend after a record-setting performance on the Honda Rider’s Club of America (HRCA)-sponsored Stotz Racing CBR1000RR at the Spring Nationals at Virginia Motorsports Park, April 28-29.

Stotz came into the third round of the AMA/Prostar series with the quickest Pro Street liter bike in the field when he set an ET of 7.47 seconds at Valdosta earlier in March. In the first round of Sunday’s eliminations, he established a new class ET record of 7.31 seconds on his turbocharged, 463-horsepower CBR1000RR and went on to win the final in convincing fashion. In the process, Stotz also set a new personal best top speed for the Honda liter-bike of 195 miles-per-hour.



“We’re giving up 300cc to our competitors but we’ve known all year that this kind of performance was possible from the Honda CBR1000RR,” said Stotz. “We cramming 35 psi of turbo boost into our motor and spinning it to 13,600 rpm and it’s not even blown a head gasket, thanks to Honda Genuine Parts. I give credit to Honda’s superb engineering, the incredible Velocity Racing Turbo Systems package and Star Racing for designing and building a cylinder head that can win races.” Stotz also thanked Joe Rocket for outfitting him in all-new CBR-matching competition leathers and Scorpion EXO for their lightweight, aerodynamic, well-ventilated and fog-free helmet.

The next stop for Stotz Racing and the HRCA-sponsored Honda CBR1000RR will occur this weekend, May 5-6, at Milan Dragway in Michigan for an exhibition of the top Pro Street bikes. Then it’s on to round four of the AMA/Prostar Championship Series at Memphis Motorsports Park, June 8-9.
