Winning the Wally
We attended the 2Wheel Speed finals to try and win the NHRA Wally that Byron Dragway put up as it is now an NHRA sanctioned track. Saturday we qualified #1 and posted the quickest run of the day. After 5 rounds (2 qualifying- 3 elimination) the track was starting to lose a little bite. We overpowered the starting line and had to settle for runner-up. On Sunday the day to Win the Wally, there was 6 rounds of racing and the competition got tougher. We qualified #3 and aimed our efforts at not repeating the mistake of overpowering the track again. The track again posed problems of being loose from 100 feet to 500 feet. We honed our combination and in the final laid down the quickest ET of the event. Frankie did an excellent job of pedaling it when it spun in the 100-to 500 ft range but then went 196 mph out the back to win our second NHRA Wally.
We are trying to attend the KOTS (King of the Street) event on Oct 6th. It is a highly attended free for all style event that you have to see to believe. I road our bike at the spring event but had a cam sensor wire with reversed polarity. This caused the bike to have 26 degrees less timing and become very sluggish. The timing is correct now and Frankie will ride. No one is allowed to use the new hand-slider type clutches or any centrifical lock-up. It is all spring pressure trying to hold back 450 hp. This should prove to be an interesting race. If time, money, and a spare motor all come together we are trying to make the Shakedown at E-Town. I will keep you posted on our results.
