Team Half Fast at AHDRA Bike Week NationalsThe Team was very excited to return to Norwalk, Ohio for the AHDRA Ohio Bike Week Nationals after having to miss it last year due to the engine blow up (do y’all remember that?).

Since we were rained out at our local track for most of May, we were unable to change our tune-up to accommodate the hot weather, and so we decided to participate in the test and tune session on Friday night.

We made six passes and made a lot of progress with the help of David Stanley of Top Fuel team Grey Ghost Racing.  We never hit real close to the elusive 11.50 second pass, but we did manage an 11.589, an 11.465, and an 11.346.

Russ Morseman Racing #44Last weekend I finished 2nd in the heat and was run into on the first lap of the feature breaking the left rear axle tube off the rear end. It wasn’t a good night.

This last weekend I was leading the heat with three laps to go and the car hit 260 deg. and started losing power. I ended up finishing second.

We decided to change some things for the feature but had the same results. I started 5th and was up to second on lap 9. We had a restart and I took the lead on the high side only to have the caution come out for a another wreck so I got put back to second and the leader chose the outside the next time...
