A few years ago I was standing by the big end of the track and saw Corry Hogan go 250 on a fuel bike. He was literally flying through the traps. Damn ...

And Tak Shigematsu went 6.02 @ 194 on an early shutoff on a 2 cylinder. If you can call it a shutoff - his handlebars broke in his hands and cut the throttle before he wanted.

That 6.02 was the quickest ever for a Fuel Harley. Would have been the first 5 if the handlebar had not broke. He was trying to hold on with one hand at 194 mph but couldn't keep from brushing the wall. Luck and experience kept him from crashing. Had run in the 220s earlier.

Props to anyone brave enough to ride one of those beasts, pure adrenaline junkies, sorry but I'm not that much of a thrill seeker.

Is Jesse James still building one now that Alexis retired? Earlier in the year the talk was that he would be racing in the class soon

Or small brains. Did the Superman thing on dirt bikes. Spent 3 weeks in the hospital n multiple surgeries. All fun till someone gets hurt. Just a matter of when.

There are plenty of people who say the same thing about drag racing in cars.
