Spotlight : Bradley Shellhaas

Bradley D. Shellhaas of Springfield, Ohio is originally from Troy, Ohio. Bradley says he has had a ‘birth defect of racing in the brain instilled by his pops from birth’, which resulted in his lifetime passion for racing. When racing, Bradley rides Kawasaki dragbikes; Trac T4 Chassis, Doughty-Patterson Chassis, all 73-80 based KZ motors. It was not until 2008 when he went to two wheel machines and finally felt at home after going from Jr. Dragster (1995) to Super Pro (dragster, 2001) to Pro (Monza door car, 2006). With his first race event win under his belt at the tender age of seven (Muncie Dragway, Dash for Cash Races) in the k-10 class, he was on top of the world and thought he now had an arch nemesis by the name of Brunson Grothus in that class.

Along his racing journey, he has become the 2011 and 2012 NHDRO Super Comp Class Champion, four time NHDRO Pro ET event winner, three time NHDRO Super Comp event winner, 2011 Bristol Thunder Valley Shootout Pro ET Winner and multiple time Kil-Kare Dragway event winner. Between 2011 and 2012 alone he accumulated a recorded final round of fifteen event wins and only three runner-up titles. Amazingly, in his first year of motorcycle racing Bradley qualified third for divisional finals while earning two event wins. He learned a lesson when he missed only one NHDRO race as he feels a sting every time NHDRO Ironmen shirts are gifted. It is not every day that you come across a racer such as Bradley Shellhaas, one that cannot resist the temptation of racing all because of a ‘birth defect of racing in the brain instilled by his pops from birth’.
