Person of the Week : Gregory Allan Westling
Greg was first exposed to motorcycles in the 60's by his brother Ron. In 1982 Greg went to his first drag race and once he saw the bikes racing, he was in love. That next year he got started in drag racing and the rest is history. Since the 80's Greg has been bracket racing various bikes ranging between 15 seconds and 9 seconds.
For 2013 Greg plans to run consistent high 7's on his turbo bike in either Pro Gas or Pro Mod in CMDRA. He would also like to win one or two events in Super Bike and possibly the championship on his bracket bike. He will also be racing at his local track of Medicine Hat and attempting to win the Pro Bike class championship. But his ultimate goal for the year is to bring both bikes home at the end of the season still running, which doesn't happen very often.
