Stotz Racing runs fastest ET and top speed at AMA Prostar Pro Street competition in Norwalk
July 19, 2005

Motorcycle drag racing fans attending Norwalk Ohio’s Raceway Park this past weekend, July 15-17, saw four-time AMA Prostar champion Kent Stotz and his HRCA-sponsored (Honda Rider’s Club of America) turbocharged CBR1100XX run the fastest ET and top speed of the meet and the fastest ET this year in AMA Prostar Pro Street Class competition.

“We ran a 7.36 ET at 197 miles per hour in the second round of eliminations,” said an enthusiastic Stotz. “We were on track to take the overall win but we spun the tire in the final round and that cost us the win.”

At the end of the 2004 season, AMA Prostar reworked the Street Bike Shootout Class rules—including a one-inch increase in ground clearance (three inches total) and a two-inch increase in ride height (now 22 inches)—and renamed the series Pro Street for 2005. When factoring in the Honda Blackbird’s prodigious 550-plus horsepower, wheelspin becomes a particular challenge. “We are finding that high track temperatures have a significant impact on our ability to hook up,” said Stotz. “Since we added 65 horsepower and dropped 30 pounds of overall weight compared to last year’s bike, we’ve been on a steep learning curve at our first races. But we’ll be ready for the next race,” he added.

Stotz Racing will be at the NOPI Honda Pro Street Tire-Bike Class on July 30-31 at Memphis Motorsports Park in Memphis, Tennessee. Stotz returns to Prostar competition on August 13-14 at Indianapolis Raceway Park in Indiana.
