3 Pro Street Races – 3 Riders

Ronnie Mitchell Racing prepares to end the 2017 race season with a plethora of riders. Heading into this weekend’s NHDRO season finale, Richard Gadson will be riding for team RMR. Gadson rode Mitchell’s Detroit built turbocharged Suzuki Hayabusa to the number one qualifying spot with a 6.82 at 214mph at the NHDRO Summer Celebration in August. This weekend Richard will be competing in three Pro street races, finishing the August event as well as racing in the finale race with a bonus Shootout Saturday night. That’s a whopping 12 potential elimination passes for the team to win on one bike!

The week following the RMR team with Michael Bayes will head to Maryland for the IDBL Pro Street Battle Royale. With Gadson already committed to riding the Brad Mummert GS Pro Street bike at that event, Ronnie had to find a new rider. With 10K on the line Ronnie is rolling the dice with a rider he has never worked with and who has never ridden a Pro Street bike! Who would take such a crazy risk? Well when the rider is none other than veteran racer Chip Ellis, it’s not much of a risk. Chip has ridden everything from street bikes to Pro Mods.

“Chip has been racing forever and actually expressed interested in riding a Pro Street bike at the beginning of the year. So when Richard recommend calling him, I thought it was a great idea,“ said Ronnie Mitchell. Chip has many accolades but he isn’t on the Pro Street GOAT list and this will be a great opportunity for him to make his mark in the class. I am so confident in riding ability that I know this will be great fit for us at the IDBL event”

Adding to the excitement, Chip will be making his first pass on the bike at the IDBL event. With the team scrambling to get bikes ready for the NHDRO finale, there has been no time to set up a test session for Chip and the bike.

The final event for the RMR team will be in November at South Georgia Motorsports Park for the Man Cup Finals. Since team rider, Jason Angela’s bikes is currently being rebuilt for the 2018 race season, he will be riding Ronnie’s bike for that event. While Ronnie has his hands full tuning one bike for three riders, he will also be tuning Michael Bayes’ bike at all three events. So be sure to stop by see the team at all three events, and wish Chip Ellis Good Luck in Maryland.

The team would like to thank their sponsors for their continued support:
