Brown/Bradley Top Fuel Motorcycle Team 2018

2017 was a great start for the team. We had a great time as a team. learned a lot, had some small successes and got lucky enough to run alongside Larry and Steve McBride in the FINAL, on their WORLD RECORD record run, at the largest Top Fuel Motorcycle event in recent HISTORY!

Over the winter rider Mitch Brown completely disassembled the bike at his Shop Monster Race Products and cleaned, inspected, and polished everything on the machine. Some parts were replaced and some sent out for repair. The bike was then taken back to Sam Wills at Innovative Frameworks for a few more new and reworked parts and final race prep. Delvin Clark tested and worked over all the electronics and the bike is now race ready.

In the off season the team discovered one of the two engines had a cracked crankshaft after only 8 runs on it. Bad news for the team that desperately needs a third engine to be competitive and still has a small stroke crank in their #2 engine. The Houston Motorsports Team had a brand new Winberg crank for their #3 engine and was kind enough to let Dennis Bradley use that crank for the #1 engine.

Steve and Larry McBride have been a HUGE help to the team over the winter. They have completely reworked the clutch we have struggled so much with and changed the method and approach of how to tune the clutch. The team is excited about the changes and anxious to see the results. Under the McBride brothers direction the team will start from square one again and make 330′ runs until the clutch is working correctly and then progress to 1/8 mile and 1000′ runs before making full 1/4 mile runs. ” Dennis and I are both so thankful for the McBride’s help as well as our whole team. They have been in contact almost every week of the off season asking questions, offering advice, helping us in so many ways. They truly love the sport and want to see the class healthy and we are very thankful for their help.” Brown stated.

We are happy to have the WHOLE team returning for the 2018 season as well. A group of guys that barely knew each other a year ago are know a GREAT team.
