I thought something was wrong with my eyes when I just read that a TRIUMPH will be running in NHRA Pro Stock ! Is this for real ? Could a BMW be next ? Will NHRA let it pass TECH ? Will they put so many restrictions on them that they will pack up and go home ? I have been following a little bit the progress and testing Bob Carpenter has been doing with TRIUMPH and they are running 9'0s with a street bike. Should be interesting to see what happens.
Carpenter has been working on the 2400 cc horizontal 3cyl. Can't see that being what they are using for Pro Stock.
Looks more like a Buell sponsored by Triumph.
Viper is going to give it a whirl next year with their proprietary V Twin.
They actually purchased PMFR to assure they will have access to the finest chassis and components.
We'll see if they can get through the NHRA mess.
Sorry to disappoint but it IS a Buell. I don't think there are any Triumph configurations that would be legal.
Any mfg. could be competetive if they throw enought money at NHRA like Harley does.
