    Fastlane, What ever happened to Wayne Loftain? I only met him once at the last "nationally sancioned" race I ever ran, the national finals in Gainsville in 1983. Met George Korey and Guy Glover the same weekend.(had been doing work for Guy but had never met him). We only raced the ex Ward Wollard 89" Yetman at Red Roberts All Harley Drags after that cause he had the crowds and could pay Good money. Brought the bike back out in the early 90's to beat up on the AMRA pro stock record. Best we ever managed with a mag,single plugs, 17/8 carb, 1 3/4 pipes and small tire was 9.31 @ 140 and a 5.85 @ 115 eighth mile. The EVOs got very quiet for a while. Unfortunetly business keep us from racing very often and the bike was sold to Steve Roberts where it still sits today. It is an unusual piece in that it is the same 1958 motor, in the same Yetman frame , at the same displacement since 1970 and was one of the first gas bikes in the 9's . It still manages to qualify in Top Gas Pushrod at the T&O race. I do not know of another Harley, still intact as raced , with a longer history ,that still shows up and races. I am proud to have been involved in it's history.

    Wayne is living in Palm Coast, FL. Doing business as Wayne's Speed and Custom.
    Real nice home, with a very, very large garage attached to it.

    Guy is still riding around So. Fl. on his Buell.

    John Gregory and Jody just left So. Fl. last week for the Wisconson summer.

    John,sr.

    Hey FASTLANE, My bike was Ron Fringer's Top Gas Bike that he set the 9.69 record with. Motor was built by Warner Riley for his Bonneville Salt Flats bike from what I was told. Ron sold it to George Sumner. I ran into George at Sonny Routts and he told me it was for sale. So I bought it. I sold it years later to a guy from Atlanta named John Washington I believe and last I heard he crashed it. Then put motor in a stock frame. That's all I can tell ya now.

    Yea that was the original Dragon Daddy Top Gas Bike of Ron Fringer's...I had a Match Race with the local big shot Top Fuel guy at Union Grove in 71, that's when I first met Fringer...after he moved to Californian we were best friends, last seen him at the AHDRA Event in Vegas last year...
