Hable Racing Team Report

The 2017 season has started off quite well for the Hable Racing team. The team consisting of Ryan, Roxanne (mom) and Brian (dad), along with the Wisconsin cheering section of Grandma Mary, Sister Brianna (Kinseth) and nieces Elise and Adele who love to watch their uncle race! The team is going back to their family team roots and it appears to have been an excellent move. While Ryan is working to get his Pro Street bike Poison Ivy ready to race, he is working and riding with Lee Tomlinson. This new partnership is hoping for a fast and safe season.

After a weekend at the Man Cup in Memphis with three #1 qualifying rounds and a personal best 6.85 at 210 mph; it looks as if the teaming of Ryan Hable/Hable Racing with Lee Tomlinson of Lee’s Cycle Shop is proving to be a force in the Pro Street class. This pass gives Ryan a big jump on the G.O.A.T. list from number 22 to 13! The team grabbed their first official 6-second pass in qualifying with a 6.97 at the Man Cup in Valdosta, they followed that up with a solid weekend at NHDRO in Indy. They headed into the heat and humidity at the Man Cup in Memphis taking the #1 spot in qualifying all three rounds with a 6.92, 6.91 and 6.85, also taking the top mph spot for the weekend. Unfortunately, elimination rounds were cancelled due to weather.

The team heads into the NHDRO race in St. Louis at Gateway Motorsports Park for another hot weekend and aiming for another hot performance on the track. The team has come a long way from their testing passes in Valdosta in which they were fighting multiple issues, to personal bests for both Ryan and Lee; and top qualifier! The hard work and dedication put forth by the entire team has yielded impressive results. Both Ryan and Lee bring years of racing experience to the team, their tuning, building and riding skills have made for a great combination. The team receives awesome crew support from the rest of the  Hable family and some great friends.

The team would like to thank all of the wonderful sponsors who are the key to our success on the track. The colorful bike of Lee Tomlinson is supported by Big CC Turbos, McIntosh Machine, Port-Tech, Montgomery Motorsports, Rob Bush/RBM, MPS, Wossner Pistons, Extreme Motorsports, Penske Shocks, and a special thanks to the crew at Holley! This is the only Pro Street bike running a Holley EFI and the team couldn’t be more thrilled with the precision tuning capabilities and technical support. Hable Racing is pleased to continue working with RCC Turbos, Ward Performance, NLR Systems, McIntosh Grayson, APE, and Marcus at M2 Shocks who provides excellent trackside support.

A big thank you to all of the racing series and their folks, you all put on incredible races that allow the team to go fast and have fun. And, to our dedicated media who make it possible for fans everywhere to enjoy the sport, thanks! Follow Hable Racing on Facebook and Twitter to see videos and photos capturing the 2017 season.
