    A Quote from Steve Dorn: " I know this bike has a 5 in it. I have never riden any bike that pulled that hard." Steve now has bragging rights as the quickest man in the world on a Blown Nitro V Twin with an 1/8 mile, 4.14 @ 189. A 1/4 mile, 6.40. The amazing thing is, it did the 6.40 with the front cylinder out at 4.3 sec. The bike was billowing flames out the stacks, visable in broad daylight. Steve said when the cylinder went out, the bike tried to throw him over the handlebars. Steve and I are seeking sponsors for the record attempts this coming season. We both believe we can smash the records in all the sanctions in 2012. We need parts sponsors; a GoodYear tire sponsor and money sponsors. We need your help! We are reaching out to the motorcycle community, the Christain community and all those have a need for speed! A $25.00 donation will put your name on the Messenger. A $250.00 donation will put your name on the bike and send you Tee shirt with picture of Steve and the Messenger with a special thanks and our records accomplished at the end of the 2012 season. If you would like to be a major sponsor with large bike ad or a trailor ad, contact Bob Grimes at; mightywings@sbcglobal.net
    Please send all donations to Mightywings Race team, 10343 La Cuesta Trl, Rough and Ready Ca. 95975

    I went to this event last year and it was great, and I am wondering where I can find information about similar events in Vegas for this year because I want to use these Vegas Coupons I have for a cheap room. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
