Spotlight : Tom Luke

Avid racer Thomas (Tom) Luke born in Waterbury, Connecticut but now resides in South Beloit, Illinois. Tom caught the racing bug in the early 1990’s when he sported a full head of hair and almost a six pack! Since then he has raced five bikes. He began racing with a 1982 Suzuki GS-1100, followed by a 1996 Kawasaki ZX-9, then a 2000 Kawasaki ZX-12R which he raced for approximately 11 years. Tom currently races both a 2012 Kawasaki ZX-14R (Green Mamba) and a 2002 Kawasaki Mean Streak (11.40’s v-twin cruiser).

One of his greatest accomplishments is meeting such great people over the years, in addition to all the money he has won! Some of his other accomplishments include being able to participate in the 2001 Summit Finals in Indianapolis, Indiana and having his first class win at an NHDRO event in the Street Fighter class. Tom is thankful to all those who have helped him along his racing journey, be it advice, parts or simply helping him become a better racer. He looks forward to the laughs and fun after competing on the dragstrip. Tom attended and enjoyed his first NHDRO event in the fall of 2011, making a commitment to himself to drive nearly 5 to 6 hours to attend all races of the 2012 NHDRO season. His commitment was not in vain as he started off the 2012 season gaining points from the first two NHDRO races. With such a great start in 2012, 2013 should also be great.
