Tony Mullen Earns Third Straight 4.60 Championship 

What a season. After the 2018 Man Cup season, and winning back to back Grothus Dragbikes Ultra 4.60 Championships, Mullen Brothers Racing decided to start from ground zero and build a “Purpose Built” 4.60 bike.

With a lot of work and sacrifices from all involved, we believe we “Did” build, in our eyes, the Perfect 4.60 Bike. This machine did not falter once. It reacts, stays planted, runs high MPH, ridiculously easy to tune, is deadly consistent and won our 3rd consecutive Grothus Ultra 4.60 Championship.

I have so many people to thank for this achievement, so here goes:

First and foremost, to my brother Jimmy “Chief”. The amount of time and effort you put into the design, build and tuning goes unparalleled. Thanks for all you do. Not only are you my brother, but you’re my best friend. Love ya. And thank you to Colleen for putting up with Jimmy’s many hours in the shop. You Rock. To Donnie “Wrench”. You were always there on and off-track through it all. From your Clutch-work to Maintenance, and everything in between. Your accuracy and consistency give me the confidence to focus on just racing. You’re the best Son in Law I could ever have dreamed of.

To my lovely wife Jeri, thank you for your support and understanding that Racing is something that’s in my Heart and Soul. Also, thanks for all the great yummy snacks. I Love you. To Hayley “my Daughter” Thanks for being you and making me smile. I Love you too.

To George Babor “BPM Racing Engines” the Horsepower and effort you put into our program is appreciated more than you’ll ever know. You are the Speed Merchant.

Thanks to D&G Chassis for keeping all that horsepower to the ground. You took a good Chassis and made it Great. Thanks to Grothus Dragbikes for Sponsoring the class. I’d also like to thank Schnitz Racing, MRE, FBG, Induction Solutions, Monster Race Products, Worldwide Bearings, Dogwood Racing, Weeks Machine, Vanson Leathers, Fusion Powder-coating, MTC Engineering, JT Norton, Cycledrag, Jason Heller,, Bradenton Motorsports Park and 4.60 Dragbikes.

Special thanks to Marenda and Todd Stitzer for the support on getting us to the races. This makes 12 Championships I’ve won in 13 years of chasing points. I myself am beyond proud of this achievement. What’s next for Mullen Brothers Racing?? Who knows…. but it’s been a Hell of a ride.

God Bless to y’all
