Grimes Goes UP the AHDRA Ladder

Raleigh, NC: The Samson/Ray Price Nitro Harley team is very pleased with the performance
of rookie rider, Tommy Grimes. Grimes is already posted in the 9th spot on the
AHDRA Screamin’ Eagle Top Fuel Harley field and waiting for the next official
changes to advance closer to the top five.

Grimes, ever improving, placed well at both Woodburn, OR at the Team Latus Motors
Northwest Nationals and St. Louis at the Surdyke Mid-West Nationals. As Grimes
under Price’s ever watchful eye makes rounds and quicker ET’s and faster mph,
Price is confident he made the right decision to place Grimes on undoubtedly the
most powerful Nitro Harley in the field.

"As Grimes gets the feel of our bike, we look for great things . Jeremy Hoy,
crew chief and Justin Heinle, engine builder, are anxious to step up the program,
but we need for Grimes to be ready for the increase in power. Running with the
field and often better is what we’d expected for this season. We are pleased to
have earned our spot to make the NHRA exhibition at Rt. 66 in Joliet, Illinois,
Sept. 29th – Oct 2nd" according to Price.

Grimes said, "I’m pleased to be with the Samson/Ray Price Nitro Harley team.
Ray’s done everything possible to make sure I feel comfortable on the bike. I
could not have joined better team. Jeremy and Justin help me not only with the
tuning and preparation of the bike but the mental development as well."

"I’d like to take an opportunity to thank my family and Greg Dorsett for
all the support they’ve given me, too. When I’m on the road, Stephanie calls between
rounds to let me know how the points are going and Greg is my right hand man at
T & L Automotive, Inc. Without that home support I’d never be able to focus
on the job at the track."

"Focus" could be the team’s mantra for the rest of the reason. As the
team prepares for the home stretch:

Sept 29-Oct 2 NHRA Exhibition -Rt. 66 Joliet, IL
Oct . 15-16 Screamin’ Eagle Perf. Parts Natls Rockingham, NC
