Memphis Drags

Dragbike rider Brunson Grothus is no stranger to the winner’s circle, but his Memphis Drags victory was his first win in PDRA competition. He raced around a collection of series regulars to earn the win in just his third PDRA appearance.

Grothus showed off the potential of his family-built Suzuki with his 4.069 effort to qualify number one. With 13 bikes on hand for a 16-bike field, Grothus earned a first-round bye run. His 4.076 defeated Michigan race winner Meshal al-Saber in the second round. Grothus clicked off low et of the event, 4.052, against Terry Schweigert’s 4.122 in the semifinals. Finally, a .003 reaction time and 4.058 were enough to take down Chris Garner-Jones’ 4.069 in the PXM final.
