Speed Features

The HudsonLast weekend I took the Hudson to race the Bonneville 100 Open Road race that starts just south of Wendover, NV on HWY 93A and goes 50 miles to the 93 junction and races back for a total of 100 miles. Everything started out great and at any given time there was a crowd around the truck checking it out. Friday was my Rookie Qualifying and practice and Saturday was the race.



Midwest Supermodified Association (MSA) scorer and statistician Jeff Lickfelt will now log winner number five in as many races as the MSA series continues to roll through the 2010 season making its third stop of the year at Sandusky (OH) Speedway last Saturday night. Sophomore driver Trent Stephens put the hammer down on his Steve Stout owned No. 19 driving to the front from the sixth starting spot in a field of 19 fire breathing Supermodifieds to nab his first checkered flag of 2010. When the chips where down and a late race caution flag flew, with just two laps to go, Stephens was able to master the Sandusky pavement holding off a charging, determined Timmy (J) Jedrzejek.



Team Half Fast Drag Bike RacingTeam Half Fast Is Back for the Chase after Interesting Blow-Up

The March, 2010, AMRA Season Opener event in Bowling Green, Kentucky, was explosive! After qualifying well in the 11.50 class (we ran an 11.522), we were attempting to qualify in the 10.90 class during the 2nd round of qualifying. We were on a great pass, and at about the 1000 foot mark – POW. The motor blew up.

Martino at Summit NationalsJune 28, 2010 --

We had a strong outing at the NHRA Summit Racing Equipment Nationals at Norwalk, Ohio with the new .36 / .41 nitrous tune-up calculated by nitrous guru Ken Brahier of Ny-Trex Nitrous Oxide Systems.  In front of a record breaking crowd this season for the NHRA Full Throttle Series, we qualified with a 6.851 at 189.92 MPH running our nitrous timers on at .10 seconds into the run for only 5.00 seconds down the track.  The new .36 / .41 nitrous spread showed quicker incremental times all the way down the track compared to our 200+ MPH pass from the NHRA Lucas Oil Series event at Norwalk earlier this month.  We can't wait for the opportunity to see what this nitrous spread is capable of producing in the quarter mile running our nitrous timers from the starting line to the finish line.



Charlie and Tim took on the field in the MSA at ToledoFour races and four winners. That is how the Midwest Supermodified Association (MSA) 2010 stat book will read after the Toledo (OH) Speedway event. Veteran racer Tim “Iceman” Ice froze the field and went into a track that he is very familiar with taking his Fast Racing Engines powered May Motorsports entrée to the win in the special 40 lap MSA/Oswego Wing Challenge feature race Friday night. With finishes of fifth, second, and third in the first three starts of 2010, it only seemed like a matter of time until Ice took the checkers. Well known for making a living at blasting to several victories and Championships in the Late Model ranks, this was Ice’s first open wheel win. This is the second new winner on the MSA tour in as many weeks. The Ohio high-banks provided plenty of excitement and proved its tough, hard knock reputation to be true, even if Mother Nature tried to rain on the parade.
