logo_amra_2013

“After finishing runner up in the 2014 AMRA Nitro Funny Bike points, I was really looking to start off this season better than last year.” said Jim Doyle “My goal entering this weekends 4th Annual Cajun Blowout Nationals was to take the Nitro Funny Bike MPH record, Qualify #1, and of course to win the race, which would have given our team the points lead.  Right off the trailer I ran a 6.89 at 211.36, to break the class record next round a 6.851 at 213.92.  After that run we returned to the pits and made a gear change.  Our next round was even more exciting, We ran a 6.761 which made up #1 Qualifier.  The first round of eliminations, We won with a cylinder out.  Second round we won again with a 6.797 at 216.29 to now break my own record, but was unable to back it up as we smoked the tire in the finials.  We are ready for a good showing in Bowling Green next month!”

    You need more air (nitrogen) in rear tire!

      Apparently it worked fine since he broke the record. Don’t think they will be adding any nitrogen any time soon. If it works leave it alone
