Ryan Schnitz jumped up to 5th in the qualifying order in the second day of timed runs for the NHRA Mopar Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway near Denver, Colorado. Ryan's first pass of the day was a pretty good one on the Trim-Tex/Muzzy's Buell, and put the team in contention with the rest of the frontrunners.

5th Ryan Schnitz right lane 7.435 at 179.80 mph

In the final round, a bolt came out of the ram that connects to the air-shifter lever and Ryan was out of the throttle early. "We checked out the transmission and it all looks good," reported Schnitz.

qualifying round 4
5th Ryan Schnitz left lane 7.937 at 134.11 mph

" We did our normal, routine, Saturday night maintenance and we're ready for first round," continued Ryan, who faces G.T. Tonglet when racing starts on Sunday. Ryan beat Tonglet once last year, but lost to him twice on redlights.

" There's really no reason why we can't run a .30 here. We still have room for improvement in the front half of the track. I think we could use a better clutch setup to gives us less initial spin and more wheel speed through first gear."

Schnitz thanked Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Muzzy's, Schnitz Racing, Bates Leathers and NGK.

When Tom Bradford qualified number 1 in St. Louis, he and the Balbayis Asset Consulting/Hal's Speedshop NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle team celebrated with lobster combos. But Tom went out early on raceday in St. Louis-round 1 early. "We're staying away from lobster this time," said Bradford, who remained qualified second behind screamin' Chip Ellis at the Mopar Mile-High Nationals in Denver. "It didn't suit me very well last time with a first round exit, so we're doing the Texas Roadhouse scene this time."

qualifying round 3
2nd Tom Bradford right lane 7.399 at 180.55 mph

Tom became only the second Pro Stock Motorcycle rider in the 7.30's at Denver with a sweet pass in round 3. "We were real pleased with that .39," said Bradford. "We weren't even really trying to pick up, we were just trying to maintain."

qualifying round 4
2nd Tom Bradford left lane 7.415 at 180.43 mph

The team slipped slightly in the last round. "We were being greedy. We thought 'If we can do this, we should certainly try and do this.' We made a gearing change, nothing too aggressive. We anticipated the weather would be at its worst, but right at the end a cloud cover came over and dropped the temperature. But we still only lost a hundredth and a half. In previous years, a hundredth wasn't all that big of a deal. But now you'd practically give a finger for a hundredth.

" I had a great day today. We're very, very happy. We feel like we've got some consistent tuning, and this seems like this is our biggest tuning challenge of the year. We're feeling good about tomorrow.

" I want to say 'get well' to John Hammock, who was injured in pit accident tonight."

Tom thanked sponsors Balbayis Asset Consulting, Hal's Speedshop, Hal's H-D/Buell, Vanson Leathers, Stitch-it-Embroidery, CRD Inc., T-N-S Machining, S&S Cycle, Buell Motor Co., Mustang Shelly's Roadhouse, Red Line Oil, MicroBlue Racing, Autolite, Simpson, Wiseco, Rinehart Racing, and The Carburetor Shop for their support of the Hal's/Thunder Eagle team.

Schnitz Mid-Pack in Denver July 14, 2006

After one round of qualifying at the NHRA Mopar Mile-High Nationals, Ryan Schnitz sits mid-pack on the Trim-Tex/Muzzy's Buell. Schnitz is looking to master the thin atmosphere at Bandimere Raceway near Denver, Colorado, and gain ground on his rivals.

qualifying round 1
12th Ryan Schnitz right lane 7.545 at 178.76 mph

" Our first pass off the trailer was a 'Try to get some data' pass," said Ryan. "And we were able to make a small change and pick up a little bit."

qualifying round 2
8th Ryan Schnitz right lane 7.502 at 179.28 mph

" We're taking baby steps right now to try and get on this tune-up that we need to get. We're about a tenth off from (number 2 qualifier Tom) Bradford and Chip (Ellis, the number 1 qualifier), so we have some room to improve and we need to do that. The bike seems to back-half with some of the top runners, so I don't necessarily think it's a power issue. I just think we need to work on our front half-our clutch, basically, and gearing.

" We have two motors with us this weekend, and they're both fresh from the little break that we had. We're trying a few new small little things with the bike in hopes that we'll get some better performance, but right now we're not showing any of that, so we've gotta work a little harder.

Schnitz thanked Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Muzzy's, Schnitz Racing and NGK.

Bradford 2nd in Denver July 14, 2006


Tom Bradford, who qualified on the pole last time out in St. Louis, sits second after day 1 of NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle qualifying at the Mopar Mile-High Nationals. Bradford's Balbayis Asset Consulting/Hal's Speedshop Buell came up just short of mastering Denver's thin air better than the rest of the field.

qualifying round 1
8th Tom Bradford right lane 7.525 at 177.18 mph

" That was our first ever pass down Bandimere Speedway on the mountain, and we're really happy with that," Tom said about round 1. "We felt like we knew what we needed to do, so the boys Rob Schopf and Jim Schneider went to work. You know, they always seem to turn the right screws. I think they're using 'No-Name Tools' here, but whatever tools they're using, they're using them right."

qualifying round 2
2nd Tom Bradford left lane 7.421 at 179.76 mph

" We set the track record on that pass, which lasted about 5 minutes until Chip Ellis came out and reset the record," laughed Bradford. "But what a fantastic day-just awesome. An outstanding, outstanding round of qualifying-I just can't say enough. I want to thank all the guys back at Hal's Speedshop who are working hard.

" We're real excited about some potential marketing partners we've been talking to. The performance is there and I'm really looking forward to the future with this team."

Tom thanked sponsors Balbayis Asset Consulting, Hal's Speedshop, Hal's H-D/Buell, Vanson Leathers, Stitch-it-Embroidery, CRD Inc., T-N-S Machining, S&S Cycle, Buell Motor Co., Mustang Shelly's Roadhouse, Red Line Oil, MicroBlue Racing, Autolite, Simpson, Wiseco, Rinehart Racing, and The Carburetor Shop for their support of the Hal's/Thunder Eagle team.

Chip Ellis/Matt Smith/G2 Motorsports NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle
Pre-Race Team Report

Event: Mopar Mile-High Nationals
Dates: July 14-16, 2006
Location: Bandimere Speedway, Morrison, Colorado

G2 Plans to Resume Success

The G2 NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle team finished June's three-races-in-three-weeks grind with two straight wins, split between drivers Chip Ellis and Matt Smith. The team also qualified well, with Ellis nailing down two number ones and becoming the class's second 6-second driver. Now they speed into July and the high-altitude Denver event, planning for the same level of success they left behind in June.

George Bryce
G2/Star Racing builder/tuner/crew chief

"Something I learned from Team Winston is that when you start winning and you start doing good, you have to work even harder," said George Bryce. "Before that, we'd win a race, work on customer stuff and rest on our laurels, then get our tails beat at the next race. Once we got it all figured out, we won three championships in a row."

Bryce and the crew back at Americus, Georgia, have spent the last three weeks pouring over the team's shiny S&S V-twins. "We had one engine that used more fuel than the rest and was the fastest one, so we tried to emulate the design and see if that would yield us more than one 6-second engine. S&S builds a powerful motor and they're all virtually identical. But when you're working and tweaking on them, they end up like people and they all have different personalities. You have to learn the personalities of each in order to work well with them.

" I'd like to thank the S&S crew of Todd Olson, Brian Perkins, Steve Rominski and Charlie Hadayia, all led by Brett Smith, the president of S&S Cycle. They've changed the face of NHRA POWERade Pro Stock motorcycle drag racing with this engine package that's virtually available to anyone, and which is available exclusively through G2 Motorsports.

" I've been preaching and teaching forever to bust your butt and let the scoreboard do the yacking. It's been said in the magazines and forums that we've had the bikes to beat the last four races. Now I'm not saying that, but I want to keep it that way. My proudest moment was when we qualified 1 and 2 at Chicago in that field of motorcycles where so many can win. And then to see the S&S motors do so well against all the other bikes, especially the V-Rods from The Motor Company and the 1655 Hondas."

Matt Smith
Torco Race Fuels/Skull Gear Buell

George Bryce now has the staff to "work even harder" on the G2 race team while also servicing customer bikes and motors. But at his own one-man, motorcycle engine-building operation in King, North Carolina, Torco Race Fuels/Skull Gear Buell driver Matt Smith has to keep his customers happy. "Fred Camarena's stuff shipped this morning," Smith reported on the Wednesday before the Denver event. "And I'm putting a 2 valve motor together for Rick Slagle of Action Motorsports in Monticello, Kentucky. He bought my old bike, is going to get his license, and hopes to be out by Memphis.

" I haven't seen the Buell since the last race. They've rewired my bike and got the motors fresh on them. I never ran the Buell in Denver, so it will be interesting. V-twins are supposed to have an advantage in the thin air, so we'll wait and see. I told Chip it was my turn to win this time. To make everybody happy, we'll just keep rotating wins back and forth!"

Chip Ellis
DRAG Specialties/S&S Cycle Buell

When not working on bikes at the G2/Star Racing shop and spending as much time with wife Kathy and daughter McKenzie as he could, DRAG Specialties/S&S Cycle Buell driver Chip Ellis was breaking things these last three weeks. "I blew up my boat motor," Ellis said about his 260 horsepower Mercury outboard. "Blew it up on Lake Blackshear. Ken Johnson had to pull me back with that little fishing boat he calls 'Gator.' Then I put my spare motor on and blew that one too. At least we got all the blowin' up out of the way before we go to Denver!

" We went through all the engines on Matt's bike and my bike, put new tires on 'em, normal routine maintenance. We have some new stuff and we hope it all works. We changed the port work around a little bit. Then we put 'em back on the truck and headed out."

Ellis, who got altitude sickness, qualified second at Bandimere last year and made it to the semis. "We just got beat because the bike slowed down. I think it will take a high 7.40 to get in the field. I think we'll improve on the track record, and that somebody will be in the 7.30s. I think I will be."

Schnitz Takes Out Number 1 Qualifier NHRA Midwest Nationals near St. Louis

Ryan Schnitz made up for his 16th qualifier unhappiness by eliminating number 1 Pro Stock Motorcycle qualifier Tom Bradford in round 1 at the O'Reilly NHRA Midwest Nationals near St. Louis. Ryan nailed the tree and the Trim-Tex/Muzzy's Buell laid down its best pass of the weekend to advance.

" We tore the motor apart last night and it looked great, so we put 'Joey' back in," said Schnitz. "We made some small changes to the bike and gave it our best guess and the bike ran great the first round. It was kinda puzzling, 'cause we're not really sure what made that happen."

eliminations round 1
(W) Ryan Schnitz .011 7.159 at 183.97 mph
Tom Bradford .083 7.215 at 184.65 mph

eliminations round 2
(W) Michael Phillips .010 7.258 at 180.43 mph
Ryan Schnitz .023 7.309 at 180.16 mph

" For the second round, we said 'We're not changing anything' and made no changes. From third gear on, it just slowed up. Our best conclusion is that something is tying up in the motor and it's just going away. We won't know until it gets back to Oregon and gets taken apart."

The S&S motor is still relatively new, and there are still a lot of unknowns when it comes to maintaining them. "There are still some things that don't have a maintenance schedule yet. There's one thing that came about in the last two weeks-the rocker arm tower. It's things like that. You know how many passes you should have on the crank or the main bearings or the rings. If we take the motor apart and there's nothing wrong, then we really won't know what's up."

Schnitz thanked Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Muzzy's, Schnitz Racing, Bates Leathers, and NGK.

In a good, close round 1 Pro Stock Motorcycle drag race, Tom Bradford came up just short of holding his early lead over G.T. Tonglet at the NHRA event at National Trail Raceway near Columbus, Ohio.

eliminations round 1
(W) G.T. Tonglet .038 7.107 at 186.82 mph
Tom Bradford .047 7.118 at 186.02 mph

" For our team, if I don't cut a great light and run a pass out my wazoo, I don't win a round," said Tom, maintaining a good attitude. "If we aren't on kill, we just don't have any racer luck in the bank yet. I don't know any other way to put it.

" Don't get me wrong, I love every minute of it and I'm not discouraged at all. We went into that round wholeheartedly expecting to win. We know why we came up short and it was lane choice. 'Til about the eighth mile we had him beat. Then I felt the bumps come in. If we'd been in the left lane we'd have won that race. There weren't too many rounds won out of the right lane. But we were getting off the starting line well, which had been a problem."

Tom Bradford and the Balbayis Asset Consulting/Hal's Speedshop Buell race next June 9-11 at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois.

Tom thanked sponsors Balbayis Asset Consulting, Hal's Speedshop, Hal's H-D/Buell, Vanson Leathers, Stitch-it-Embroidery, CRD Inc., T-N-S Machining, S&S Cycle, Buell Motor Co., Mustang Shelly's Roadhouse, Red Line Oil, MTI Coatings, Autolite, Simpson, Wiseco, Rinehart Racing, and The Carburetor Shop for their support of the Hal's/Thunder Eagle team.

15th qualifier Ryan Schnitz came oh-so-close to knocking off number 2 Andrew Hines in round 1 of Pro Stock Motorcycle competition at the NHRA event at National Trail Raceway near Columbus, Ohio.

eliminations round 1
(W)Andrew Hines .045 7.085 at 184.42mph
Ryan Schnitz .014 7.134 at 183.99mph

" I cut a good light, had a good front half, and he didn't pass us until about 100-150 feet before the finishline," Schnitz said about the race with Hines. "The left lane (which Hines was in) was probably two hundredths quicker than the right. That's why you qualify well, so you can take advantage of that first round."

Schnitz feels the team made some gains on the driveline problems they were having on Friday. "We switched to a 530 chain from the 630 that we were running. It's better, but it's still not right. We'll just keep at it and keep working.

" I think we found most of the problems we've been struggling with. Now we just have to fine-tune that. But I have confidence that we're gonna do really well at Chicago.

" I want to thank Kurt Matte for filling in as a mechanic this week. I appreciated his input and am looking forward to having him do it again."

Tom Bradford made two strong, consistent laps on the Balbayis Asset Consulting/Hal's Speedshop Buell in the second day of Pro Stock Motorcycle qualifying for the Pontiac Performance NHRA Nationals near Columbus, Ohio.

qualifying round 3
10th Tom Bradford left lane 7.110 at 186.69 mph

qualifying round 4
10th Tom Bradford right lane 7.114 at 191.18 mph

" We're really happy," said Bradford. "We ran real consistent— two .11s. We had the best the 60 foot (1.078) of the session in the final round, and it was our second pass of the weekend in the 190 mph zone.

" We're just taking little slivers out of the pie and moving on. Right now we're seeing some of the toughest competition in the class and we're right in the middle of that. As far as I know, we're the only team that didn't fall off in that last round, so I feel like we picked up.

" We've got G.T. Tonglet in round 1," finished Tom. "I'm 0-1 against him so I'm looking to put the winlight on. Our sponsor Bernie Cohen of Balbayis Asset Consulting is here this weekend and we're glad to have him back. Maybe we can get our first win for him here."

Tom thanked sponsors Balbayis Asset Consulting, Hal's Speedshop, Hal's H-D/Buell, Vanson Leathers, Stitch-it-Embroidery, CRD Inc., T-N-S Machining, S&S Cycle, Buell Motor Co., Mustang Shelly's Roadhouse, Red Line Oil, MTI Coatings, Autolite, Simpson, Wiseco, Rinehart Racing, and The Carburetor Shop for their support of the Hal's/Thunder Eagle team.

A glitch in the National Trail right lane timing system left Ryan Schnitz with no time for his round 3 pass in Pro Stock Motorcycle qualifying at the Pontiac Performance NHRA Nationals near Columbus, Ohio. Antron Brown suffered the same problem in the same lane just before Ryan. "There was a problem with the lights and the track tried to blame it on the riders, but it wasn't their fault," said Rob Muzzy, the legendary builder/tuner who owns Ryan's Trim-Tex Buell. "They had all kind of problems after that and had to shut the track down for a while."

" Antron was pretty animated about the whole situation," reported Schnitz. "I knew they weren't gonna do anything about it, so you just have to look at your data and move on. It's a never-ending battle with computer systems."

14th Ryan Schnitz right lane no time

When Schnitz ran again in round 4, he didn't improve on Friday's time and dropped back one position.

qualifying round 4
15th Ryan Schnitz left lane 7.189 at 181.91 mph
best run 7.149

" We're hoping we finally figured out something, anyway" said Muzzy. "Clutch setup has been a problem for us, and we weren't getting data so we've been running blind since Atlanta. We have some ideas on what to change, but until we run it Sunday we won't find out if it's right or not. We changed some parts that we hadn't had to change before and now the clutch is completely different. We have to adjust to that."

" I think we've eliminated a lot of things and we'll make a pass tomorrow," said Schnitz. "After first round we'll have an idea about whether we're moving in the right direction or off in left field." Schnitz faces two-time champ Andrew Hines in round 1.

Ryan thanked Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Muzzy's, Schnitz Racing and NGK.

Tom Bradford started day 1 of Pro Stock Motorcycle qualifying at the NHRA Springnationals slowly, but improved to a mid-pack position by the end of the day. “Nothing really changed from Atlanta to here,” Bradford said about his Q1 pass, which posted a 60 foot time of only 1.15.

qualifying round 1
17th Tom Bradford left lane 7.217 at 192.58 mph

“We’re still struggling to get off the starting line. It was instantly spinning the tire, I mean a ton of wheel speed.” That wheel speed carried through to the end and gave Bradford big MPH, but killed the ET. Tom was not qualified.

The team had tried to address the problem in the shop, but their changes didn’t help. “We dug a little deeper and it was a setting on the 2-step,” said Bradford, who leapt off the line with a 1.08 60 foot in round 2

qualifying round 2
11th Tom Bradford right lane 7.148 at 186.41 mph

“ Nothing made sense in Atlanta,” continued Bradford. “We could not get a tune-up. But I’m ecstatic we found it and punched back in the show in eleventh. And now Jim Schneider can work with the clutch. He was pulling his hair out ‘cause nothing was working. I’m looking for Jim to put us in the 1.07 range again and we’ll run 7.0s tomorrow.

“ All in all, it was a good first day. We’re eleventh, we’d like to be stepping it up, but we just need more runs.”

Tom thanked sponsors Balbayis Asset Consulting, Hal's Speedshop, Hal's H-D/Buell, Vanson Leathers, Stitch-it-Embroidery, CRD Inc., T-N-S Machining, S&S Cycle, Buell Motor Co., Mustang Shelly's Roadhouse, Red Line Oil, MTI Coatings, Autolite, Simpson, Wiseco, Rinehart Racing, and The Carburetor Shop for their support of the Hal's/Thunder Eagle team.

Ryan Schnitz and the Trim-Tex/Muzzy's team got off to a disappointing start in day 1 of Pro Stock Motorcycle qualifying at the Pontiac Performance NHRA Nationals near Columbus, Ohio.

" The first round, we just kinda made a pass," said Schnitz, whose Buell broke in the last race in Atlanta, leaving the team with no data for that lap. "We didn't know where to start out here with this motor."

qualifying round 1
14th Ryan Schnitz right lane 7.174 at 179.52 mph

" We improved with our second qualifier, but not as well as we should," continued Schnitz. "We're losing power on the top end. We're putting in a fresh motor and we'll see if that helps."

qualifying round 2
12th Ryan Schnitz left lane 7.149 at 180.02 mph

" We're having a problem with the chain and the sprocket and it's robbing us of some ET. We made some changes and it doesn't seem to be helping us. We're the only team who seems to be having this problem, so it must be the parts or something we're doing. It's like the chassis is flexing, but it's not. Nothing's threaded, the bike runs straight down the track and feels just like it always has. And our 60 foots have not been where we've been this year.

" We hate to change too many things at one time 'cause we still need to qualify better and go some rounds," added Schnitz. "None of this is for lack of effort, that's for sure. Everybody's doing the best they can."

Schnitz thanked Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Muzzy's, Schnitz Racing and NGK.

Ryan Schnitz - NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle


Though Ryan Schnitz cut the better light (.027), and his Trim-Tex/Muzzy's Buell ran its best pass of the weekend (7.126), the advance of eventual winner Antron Brown couldn't be stopped and Schnitz lost in round 1 of Pro Stock Motorcycle competition in Atlanta.

"Yeah, I got him on the tree," said Schnitz. "But he back-halfed us. Antron ran really good on the top end and we didn't. It was our quickest pass of the weekend. We were there, we were close, but we were a pass behind everybody else (after a Q3 breakdown) and ultimately I believe that's what cost us this weekend. When you qualify 16th and run number 1, you have to really be on your game."

The weather in Commerce (where the Atlanta Dragway is located) changed from warm and sunny to rainy, cool and clammy. "All the teams had to go back and look at their notes to jet and map for today's conditions," said Schnitz. "Army (Brown's U.S. Army sponsored team) did a very good job on that and, obviously, we didn't. We'll just have to take it on the chin and move on."

The truck, trailer and bike headed to Schnitz Racing's Decatur, Indiana headquarters for the two week break before the next round in Columbus, Ohio. "This is the first time I've had the chance to do that since we got the bike," said Schnitz. The Buell is usually maintained at either Muzzy's shop in Oregon or at a satellite shop in North Carolina. "I'll be able to go over the bike and change some settings around more to my liking: the seating position, handlebar position . . . maybe change a few things on the bike to help maintenance at the track. The motor's going back to Oregon to look for more power."

Schnitz thanked Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Muzzy's, Schnitz Racing and NGK.

Tom Bradford got the round 1 monkey off of his back, advancing off the first wrung of the Pro Stock Motorcycle ladder for the first time in '06. Still, Bradford was not thrilled with the pass, which nonetheless outperformed Matt Smith's Buell after Smith redlit.

(W) Tom Bradford .055 7.232 at 192.77 mph
Matt Smith -.016(R) 7.253 at 186.85 mph

"We struggled all weekend with the setup for this race track, and the rain didn't help," said Bradford. "That was obviously not the performance we were looking for."

The bike improved for round 2 and so did Bradford's riding, as he nailed a .012 light on two-time champ Andrew Hines. But Hines made up ground quickly and drove around for the win.

eliminations round 2
(W) Andrew Hines .043 7.077 at 189.50 mph
Tom Bradford .012 7.160 at 182.40 mph

"I feel really good about my light," said Bradford, a five-time AHDRA champion. "After Gainesville and Houston, where both losses were reaction time related, I was dealing with things like getting comfortable on the bike that I'm not used to dealing with. But personally, this round did a lot for me. I feel a lot better coming out of this race than I did Houston or Gainesville.

"Our problems here were all on the starting line. Though we were running back-half numbers as well as the top 5 in the field, we just never got a hold of the starting line all weekend.

"The tune-up is forever changing with these bikes. Any change you make, no matter how subtle, can change things dramatically. If you can keep up with that, then you're doing OK.

"This was a crew chief's race and we were working without our crew chief, Rob Schopf. It was the biggest event of the weekend back at Hal's Speedshop and we had to make the tough decision for him to stay back. I know this motorcycle had 0's in it this weekend and we just couldn't find it."

All in all, it was a positive weekend for the Balbayis Asset Consulting/Hal's Speedshop team. "We got excellent, excellent coverage in "National Dragster" this week," said Bradford. "Brad Littlefield wrote it and did an excellent job. And we're in the top 10 in points, and we definitely want to stay there."

Tom thanked sponsors Balbayis Asset Consulting, Hal's Speedshop, Hal's H-D/Buell, Vanson Leathers, Stitch-it-Embroidery, CRD Inc., T-N-S Machining, S&S Cycle, Buell Motor Co., Mustang Shelly's Roadhouse, Red Line Oil, MTI Coatings, Autolite, Simpson, Wiseco, Rinehart Racing, and The Carburetor Shop for their support of the Hal's/Thunder Eagle team.

"Well, we're qualified," said Ryan Schnitz, who was hoping for more on his Trim-Tex/Rob Muzzy Racing Buell, but also felt lucky to be in the show at all in 16th spot. Schnitz qualified number 1 in the NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle Gainesville season opener and would, of course, prefer to lead the field into raceday here as well.

"We put a fresh motor in for the third round this morning," said Schnitz. "But the timing plate came loose to the point where the ignition couldn't tell where the crank was and shut the bike off.

"We needed to get the data from that run, which we didn't get. But we got some of that in the last round. It was a nice clean pass in the left lane, which from what we've seen is not the best lane for Pro Stock Motorcycles."

qualifying round 4
16th Ryan Schnitz left lane 7.179 at 180.55mph

"We're not sure right now what the problem is," continued Schnitz. "I believe it's some fuel injection tuning that we need to adjust for. Rob wants to make sure we're not getting bad data from anywhere, or that our motors are going away. Tomorrow we'll make some tuning changes and, as long as the weather holds out (the forecast is for rain), we'll see if we can outrun the #1 qualifier (Antron Brown).

"But tomorrow is supposed to be completely different, much cooler and more humid. We'll probably have to look through some notes from last year for a set-up. We'll see. We'll get it."

Schnitz was excited that Trim-Tex boss Joe Koenig made the trip to Atlanta. "We're working really hard to make a nice impression on Joe, and so far we haven't done a very good job with that!" said Schnitz. "But he knows what we're about. And he's offered us some suggestions from his seven years of racing, which is good. He's got some really great ideas. It might help us with our consistency and make us quicker, faster, and get some wins under our belt."

Schnitz thanked Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Muzzy's, Schnitz Racing and NGK.

After a string of impressive Pro Stock Motorcycle qualifying efforts that led to round 1 losses on raceday, Tom Bradford is pleased to have run consistently mid-pack throughout timed runs at the Atlanta NHRA event. "We're not doing bad, we're not doing great," said Bradford. "But we're in the thick of things and feeling good about tomorrow."

qualifying round 1
9th Tom Bradford right lane 7.213 at 179.35 mph

"We're chasin' the tune-up a little bit," Bradford admitted. "We had a real good hold on the last two tracks because they weren't all that great on traction. But we came here and the track has some real grip to it."

Photographer and Dragbike.com editor Matt Polito noticed that Bradford's Atlanta qualifying passes were not yet the eyebrow raisers that Tom laid down in Gainesville and Houston, where he qualified seventh and fourth, respectively. "When's your 'I'm Tom Bradford!' run coming?" asked Polito.

"Do I have to do that every time?" laughed Bradford, who promptly went out and jumped, temporarily, to third on the charts. By the end of the round, Bradford was back in ninth, mid-pack

qualifying round 4
11th Tom Bradford left lane 7.183 at 188.20 mph

"We're qualified eleventh and we're real happy with that," Bradford said at the end of the day. "It's gotta be one of the tightest Pro Stock Motorcycle fields ever. But we left a lot on the table. We made aggressive moves with the tune-up for the last round it and it showed us the other side of the fence, so to speak.

"So we're looking forward to tomorrow. We've got Matt Smith first round, and the field is so tight that it's anybody's game. Anybody could win tomorrow."

Bradford thanked sponsors Balbayis Asset Consulting, Hal's Speedshop, Hal's H-D/Buell, Vanson Leathers, Stitch-it-Embroidery, CRD Inc., T-N-S Machining, S&S Cycle, Buell Motor Co., Mustang Shelly's Roadhouse, Red Line Oil, MTI Coatings, Autolite, Simpson, Wiseco, Rinehart Racing, and The Carburetor Shop for their support of the Hal's/Thunder Eagle team.

Race day at Houston started out promising for Ryan Schnitz and the Trim Tex/Rob Muzzy Racing Buell with a round 1 win over Joe DeSantis.

eliminations round 1
(W) Ryan Schnitz .070 7.135 at 186.61 mph
Joe DeSantis .577 7.241 at 186.33 mph

The first 60 feet of round 2 looked pretty good too, with Schnitz nailing an .008 bulb on former teammate Chip Ellis. But as soon as Schnitz punched second gear, his race was done.

eliminations round 2
(W) Chip Ellis .028 7.205 at 186.38 mph
Ryan Schnitz .008 22.519 at 31.07 mph

"We had a cam failure," reported Schnitz. "It happened just about the top of first gear. I shifted into second and the bike started running on one cylinder.

"I think we broke three cams last year, so it’s something we really need to address. It can be catastrophic, but luckily it didn't do much damage this time.

"Because of the complexity of it, it's something that S&S will have to do. We'll work with them to try and make it stronger. The cam is driven from the crankshaft, and this one particular camshaft drives all the others. The gear is welded on to the camshaft, and that's where it's breaking. So we'll either have to make that weld stronger or use more material or something.

"We weren't fully prepared for this event as we were in Gainesville," added Schnitz, who qualified no. 1 at the Florida race. The Buell he rides for Rob Muzzy was on it's way back to Muzzy's shop in Bend, Oregon following the Gators. With no sponsorship, the bike was being parked. But then Trim-Tex Drywall Productsstepped in with sponsorship, and Muzzy's truck turned around and headed to Houston. "We came to this race on short notice for points, but that won't be the same for Atlanta. At Atlanta, we'll do better."

Ryan Schnitz and the Trim Tex/Rob Muzzy Racing Buell race next at Atlanta Dragway May 4-7.

After his best NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle qualifying position ever (4th), Tom Bradford was looking to avenge his round 1 Gatornationals holeshot loss. But with lane choice against G.T. Tonglet in Houston, Bradford was just a hair too quick on the tree, lighting a -.003 redlight.

eliminations round 1
(W) G.T. Tonglet .036 7.168 at 187.65 mph
Tom Bradford -.003 7.377 at 186.36

"What are you gonna do?" said Bradford, obviously personally disappointed but looking, professionally, towards the future. "It's frustrating, but that's drag racing. On to the next one we go.

"The thing about it is, there's so many positives and so many highs that it's hard to be bummed out. You gotta take the highs and the lows. Drag racing is a very humbling sport. You can go from the pinnacle to an ultimate low in a very short amount of time. But the reality, is I know we're out here doing a good job and it's gonna come around sometime.

"Hats off to Rob Schopf and Jim Schneider," continued Bradford. "We're definitely getting a handle on the bike and its all a testament to their ability. I know that this team is gonna find success soon. We're gonna get all the pieces aligned soon at one of these races and get it all to come out on top.

"We definitely understand the qualifying scenario, we've just got to get better at the race day scenario. We had a good tune-up but the redeye ended the whole thing. So we'll pick up our chins and focus on Atlanta."

Bradford and the Balbayis Asset Consulting/Hal's Speedshop Buell race next at Atlanta Dragway May 4-7.

Ryan Schnitz pushed Rob Muzzy's Trim-Tex Buell back into the 7.0's today with a 7.063 in round 3 that moved him up to sixth in the qualifying order. The team broke in a new tire in the final round and, like many, failed to improve.

qualifying round 3
6th Ryan Schnitz right lane 7.063 at 190.14 mph

qualifying round 4
6th Ryan Schnitz left lane 7.134 at 187.73 mph

"We kind of got a handle on the track and weather conditions," said Schnitz, who wasn't so confident with where they were yesterday. "We're now comparable with everybody else and I'm comfortable for tomorrow. We should do fairly well."

Breaking in the new tire in the final round was a race day strategy move that also gave the team a ready excuse for not improving. But a number of teams had a lot of trouble getting down the track that round. "I think a lot of teams broke some transmissions," said Schnitz. "Gary Scelzi, the Funny Car champion, didn't even qualify, so that gives you an idea about how difficult it was to tune to this track this weekend. It's gonna be a tuner's race, and whoever doesn't make a mistake is gonna win."

Schnitz will face Joey DeSantis in the first round of eliminations. "He has a Vance & Hines motor, so he'll be tough. We were looking at the ladder and there's no easy side of the ladder at all. This field is so tough."

Schnitz thanked Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Muzzy's, Schnitz Racing and NGK.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AMA/Prostar Funnybike champion Korry Hogan electrified the atmosphere at Indianapolis Raceway Park with a 6.498 ET at 213 mph on his turbo/alcohol Honda. Run in round 1 of eliminations during Prostar's Pingel Thundernationals, it was the first time a Funnybike has lapped in the 6.40's since Gary Clark ran 6.48 and 6.45 at the 2000 World Finals in Gainesville.

The crowd was already titillated by Chris Hand's personal best 6.07 Top Fuel lap, run just before Hogan and the Funnybikes hit the track. "Tony Williams did a fantastic job of prepping the track," said Korry, a 27-year old resident of Arvada, Colorado. "We saw Chris run the 6.0 in the left lane and we thought we would run a low 6.60. The tire shook 'til about 100 feet out and then it hooked up. We never thought it had anything like that in it right then."

Indeed, the Hogan Speed team's testing and qualifying sessions on Friday and Saturday hadn't given any indication that they would nearly break the longstanding ET record on Sunday. The Honda was chronically breaking its axle adjuster during Friday's test 'n tune. "Because we couldn't get another torsion sprocket, we went to a rigid sprocket and new chain, and that changed made the bike chew up the axle adjusters," said Hogan. "That was the new weak link, and we've never had that happen in two and a half years of racing that bike. The bike would try and layover as soon as I sat the front wheel down. It would move a foot over to the left and try and layover, that's why my qualifying was off." Korry ran a 6.951 at 205.57 in round 1—a good lap for most of the field, but not for Hogan.

"We were slowly getting the problem solved on Saturday. My dad Dennis, Mark McNichols and my friend Preston Morinville (Korry's co-worker at EssentiaLink) ended up just working on that, and I honestly don't know what they did, but they took care of it." Hogan's second round MPH stayed consistent at 205.38, but his ET lowered to a 6.693—on the high end of average for the team.

"The problem was gone on Sunday." True enough, as Hogan ran the .49 at a quickest-ever 213 in his first round scheduled bye run. "Jim Kizer came up to me at the end of the track and said 'You ran a .49!' Then Keith Lynn got there and congratulated me on the run, and then my dad got there and he was all excited! As unexpected as that .49 was, we still feel there's more room for improvement. I had a 1.13 60-foot time and Gary said his .45 had a 1.07 60-foot time. So we left so soft, it's ridiculous." Hogan was being conservative with the clutch tune-up after the change to the rigid sprocket and the resulting axle adjuster issue. Still, he ran a record 177 mph in the eighth mile, eclipsing Steve Stuter's 175.06 mark from 1999, and his 4.25 eighth mile ET was just short of Clark's record 4.248.

Hogan stayed strong in round 2, ousting former champ Travis Davis with a 6.541 at 212.33—fast enough to back up the record 213.00, breaking the 210.18 mark that Chip Ellis set on Steve Rice's Kawasaki in 2001.

Really dialed in now, Hogan ran another 6.54 at over 212 in the semi to put Norwalk winner Keith Lynn on the trailer. And that's where the Indy race left off, as rains postponed the Funnybike final 'til the next event in Memphis. There, Hogan will face Norwalk runner-up Perry Hollie. "We still have the final round to break the ET record," Korry said confidently.

The weekend after Indy, Hogan displayed the bike at the Honda Cyclefest in Copper Mountain. Honda president Mr. Kato flipped his hat around backwards and proudly posed for photos on the record-setting Funnybike.

Back at Hogan Speed headquarters, the team set about replacing the aluminum axle adjusters with steel parts, preparing the bike for a further assault on the record book at the last two rounds in Memphis and Gainesville.

And after the World Finals, the record-setting Honda could go home in your trailer. Hogan—who loves the smell of nitro in the morning. "It's the current Funnybike World Champion, the current MPH record holder, and the first Honda to run 6.60, 6.50 and 6.40 quarter-miles.


Korry thanked all of the companies and individuals that made the parts and pieces that went into the record-setting bike: Schnitz Racing (http://www.schnitzracing.com) for the Pro Series 2 box, Gary Clark Race Crankshafts and Fuel Systems, MTC (http://www.mtceng.com)for the pistons, block and multi-stage lock-up clutch, Bill Robinson Industries (http://www.robinsonindustries.com) for the 3-Speed Transmission, Harry's Machined Parts for the billet clutch hub and rocker arm assembly, Vanson Leathers (http://www.vansonleathers.com) for the suit and gloves that "fit right and look great," Colorado Powersports (http://www.copowersports.com) for "all the components that are such a help," AAI Speed Equipment (http://www.virtualtechnologygroup.com) for the expert machining and fittings, PMFR (http://www.pmfronline.com) for the front and rear sprockets, World Wide Bearings (http://www.worldwidebearings.com) for the ceramic bearings on the entire bike, NLR for the NLR-spec turbocharger and AMS-1000 boost controller, Mile High Crankshafts for all of the terrific support and service, Dynatek (http://www.dynaonline.com) for the data-logging capabilities to ensure consistent passes, Fitz Graphix for the terrific 213 mph paint, Acme Vinyl Graphics for the terrific graphics, and Sha-Sha Shoes (http://www.sha-sha.com) for all the Xtremely great looking shoes for the team.

"And I want to thank my mother and father and family. Without them this wouldn't be possible. And Wendel Douthat, the '2KTuner,' for knowing exactly what to do and when to do it, even over the phone. I want to thank Gary Clark, Steve Rice and Steve Suter. Without these terrific racers, we wouldn't have anything to shoot for at each race! I also want to thank Prostar (http://www.amaprostar.com) and Keith Kizer for giving us a great racetrack and Tim Hailey (http://www.usridernews.com) for the terrific coverage at each race this season."
