PDRA Mid-America Open

May 27-30, 2015

PRO EXTREME MOTORCYCLE

It took four races, but for the first time this season a new name sat atop the qualifying list and in the winner’s column for Drag 965 Pro Extreme Motorcycle at Gateway Motorsports Park.

Chris Garner-Jones, the 25-year-old son of veteran rider and team owner TT Jones, rode his 2014 Suzuki to the number-one starting position in 4.04 seconds at 175.66 mph, then defeated Jack Young and Ashley Owens to reach the final against defending class champion Eric McKinney, who had won each of the previous three PDRA races held so far this season, each time from the top qualifying slot.





McKinney, who qualified his 2012 Suzuki second in the eight-bike field, beat Brad McCoy and Terry Schweigert to reach the money round against Garner-Jones. Once there, McKinney left with a .011 holeshot, but Garner-Jones was ahead by halftrack and won with a career-best 4.00 pass at 174.08 to McKinney’s 4.051 at 177.23 mph.

“It feels great,” Garner-Jones said. “The run went just as planned, shifted right when it was supposed to and we got the win. I’m really happy.”
