Unfortunately Lucky 7 suffered damage on the final qualifier and Jay won't be competing race day.

There are 16 T/F Harleys entered for the 8 bike NHRA Gatornationals field, the highest # in recent memory. There will be some quality racers watching or on the way home Sunday. With the interest in the class increasing I hope it can become a Pro class in 2020 and possibly increased to a 16 bike field like PSM. There are over 20 of them entered in that class.

Q1 of the Gatornationals was the worst of any NHRA T/F Harley session in recent memory. 14 of the 16 entries made runs and only one ran a good time. Tak Shigematsu, who missed the Winternationals and the Phoenix race, turned a respectable 6.24 @ 221 mph. Tracy Kile was #2 at 6.90 @ 221 mph. They were the only bikes in the sixes.

Dave Vantine won Mancup Top Fuel at SGMP. He proved he will be a contender to win the Championship this year. In the semi-final he beat Mitch Brown with a 5.74 at 254.33, only the third T/F bike in history to break 250 mph in a quarter mile behind Korry Hogan and Larry McBride. In the final he beat Chris Hand with a 5.93 at 253. 33.

The McBrides are almost finished with his new bike but he will be just fine until. Oh yeah, it's for sale to anyone who has the nerve to race it.

I hate Harleys and motorcycles in general but those fuel bikes are impressive. The guys riding those things must have some HUGE balls.
