For the first time in history a woman has earned an NHRA T/F Motorcycle license, This is BIG news, Her name is Janette Thornley and she is not new to motorcycle drag racing. She has been racing Pro Fuel Harleys for several years. I can't recall a female ever making a pass on a T/F motorcycle, not even an aborted pass. I knew it would eventually happen but not surprised it took this long. Good luck Janette.

She is hoping to make her debut at the 4-Wide Nationals which is on the Mickey Thompson T/F Harley schedule this year for the first time. I think that's going to get some press!

Jay Turner won the NHRA Phoenix race on his new injected Harley. He ran 237 and 234, the fastest speed ever in the NHRA T/F Harley series.

It looks like a few 4 cylinder T/F motorcycles will be making exhibition runs at the NHRA Southern Nationals May 15-17 and the NHRA Virginia Nationals May 29th-31. It will be the first time in about 20 years, not long after Elmer Trett's fatal crash at the NHRA U.S. Nationals in 1996.
