NHDRO May Bike Fest Recap and Results

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

NHDRO wants to thanks all the racers and fans that came out to the May Bike Fest. Even though there was a high risk of rain all weekend, more than 400 racers and fans made their way out to the Muncie Dragway.

Friday’s test and tune had over 40 bikes out on the track working out the bugs, preparing to compete for the big race. Test and tune ended about 30 minutes early due to rain but every seemed to be okay after over 4 hours and unlimited passes. After a 45 minute rain the races gathered in the middle of the pits, beverages in hand, and began a $1 to enter, arm drop, moped race. ( I sure hope someone caught this on video!). After 2 hours, the moped race turned into $ 1 foot races and push-up contest, resulting in middle aged men limping around the pits with sore legs the rest of the weekend.

Saturday started out with a brief racers meeting, then Radical Rich calling the first pass of the day at 9:11 am. Again the forecast was unfavorable but Mother Nature seemed to want to shine on NHDRO because not a drop of water fell and we were able to complete both the Street ET and Pro ET full races, and the 3 qualifying rounds for the other classes. Throughout the day racers and fans were walking around with the new NHDRO shirts, visors and wristbands; talking, laughing, and enjoying some great racing. As the day progressed and the finals of Street and Pro ET approached, signups for the ever-so-popular Pit bike (Scooter) race began. It was a sight to see, as men, women, and children rushed to sign up for this winner take all 1/8 mile bracket race. Meanwhile the final for the $500 to enter, winner-take-all , 230+ lbs heavy hitters grudge race was under way. What an interesting sight to see racers stuffing leathers with anything metal to make weight! I believe one of the racers in the final was a 180 lbs guy with 20lb plates zipped in the suit. And then, to top of the night over 50 bikes signed up for the GRUDGE session and raced to arm drops, trees, giving the hit, staging back tires and anything else you can think of. Man what a good time Saturday night!!





Well the racers woke up Sunday morning to a steady down pour and a less than favorable forecast. The decision was made by 9am to call off the eliminations and give all the racers the luxury of using the class entry in any of the remaining 2011 NHDRO events.

All in all in spite of the gloomy forecast, and the lost of elimination Sunday, there was a lot of great fun at THE NHDRO May Bike Fest!!!

NHDRO wants to thank every sponsor, vendor, racer, and fan who took a chance on the weather with us at the May Bike Fest and we hope to see you all back for round 2 at NHDRO’s Motorcycle Madness June 10th weekend back at the Muncie Dragway!!!

Remember at NHDRO you either Go Fast or you………….Go HOME!
