Exactly they'll sandbag for a couple of races and miraculously find some more horsepower cause they have been working overtime on the dyno since nhra made them add the weight. Give me a fucking break I wish there was someone that would be honest about rules for once.

Looks like NHRA at least made an adjustment to the minimum weight of the HD's. While it's still not right they won't let you buy HD stuff, at least the others will be able to compete. I'd bet a different bike will be in the winner's circle at the next race.

NHRA’s Vice President of Technical Operations, Glen Gray spoke on Vance & Hines’ excluse ownership of the Harley-Davidson V-Rod program in the Pro Stock Motorcycle class.

“There has never been a rule against it, and I will give you an example of parity just in other forms of NHRA racing,” said Gray, who was hired by NHRA in July of 2008. “With some of your big Top Fuel and Funny Car teams they make some of their own parts, like maybe a supercharger or cylinder heads or some things of that nature. They don’t make those parts available to other people either. It is not unique to just Pro Stock Motorcycle, and there has never been anything in the rulebook against it. (There is not a rule) that says you have to make parts available to everybody not since I have been here (at NHRA).”

He sounds like some of our crooked politicians running this country lying POS

That's laughable at best, they should start allowing one top fuel team who has a deal with X manufacturing to build engines with 600 CID and run more boost but just that one team.

Its not fair what the NHRA is doing allowing one team to have a rules advantage.

Parity is same CID same valves per cylinder ect.

In Pro Stock could you imagine one team with a 100 CID advantage and being allowed to run 4 valve per cylinder heads ?

While everyone else is handicapped because that teams sponsor also sponsors the NHRA so the NHRA makes rules to benefit them.

And George Bryce's engine combo was turned down,I guess it was to close to the harleys imagine that. The next race for the bikes is going to be a circus on tv they will spin it so bad and VH will probably be almost in tears complaining how could they makes us add 20 pounds. I've always been a fan of the bikes since I was a kid. I just wish they had more makes in the class running 1000 cc's would be some great racing.

Subject: RE: NHRA and Heads

We had to have 50 heads on the shelf by a certain date to be legal for that season. We worked night and day to make that happen.

We had to make them for Suzuki. and Kawasaki.

We had to sell them to whoever wanted one.

They had to be a casting.

I called them a couple of years ago to see if I could change the valve angle. They said I couldn’t.

What did you have to do to get the S&S heads approved?

George I just don't know how you do it, I understand the love of the sport but glen gray is a lying piece of shit. You guys are never going to get a fair shake as long as guys like him and Tom Compton are running this circus. How do these clowns live with themselves. They are true politicians smiling and lying right to your face and act as if they are doing you a favor.
