Spotlight : Brad Gott

Lafayette, Indiana is the city Brad Gott calls home. Having raced on and off for approximately 10 years now Brad is still feeling the need for speed. He began racing motorcross in the early 90s with his brother. He later switched to drag racing in the mid 90s. As a beginner attending one of his first racing events, he planned to only test and tune with his 1982 GPZ 1100 street bike, but ended up racing all weekend.

In 2004, after being on a break form racing, Brad bought a new GSXR 750 and was back on the drag strip. He traded his Gixxer for a 2006 Hayabusa when he desired to increase his speed. After six months, he traded the Hayabusa for his current bike – a 2006 red OSR ZX14. Accompanied by the support of his wife, Brad got his NHRA license in 2008 and began racing again. Throughout his racing journey he has accomplished quite a bit, including:

-Winning his first event in Indianapolis, Indiana

-Finishing 3rd in Top Street at ORP in Indianapolis, Indiana and in Street ET at the Pingle Thunder Nationals (AMA)
