I kinda worry about the future of the class. There are NO 20 or 30 year old riders. Jay Turner is one of the young guns and is in his 50s. Bob Malloy is in his 60s I believe and has been riding fuel bikes for at least 30 years, maybe 40. And most of the 4 cylinder T/F guys are in their 60s including Larry McBride, Sam Wills and Chris Hand. These guys will retire some day and their are not any riders to replace them presently. With the speed and E.T.s they are running not many are interested in taking their place. The ones that do usually change their minds. There is not a more dangerous way to compete in drag racing.
