Dressed in leathers in the heat and humidity has to just soak you up the need to at least get the top down as soon as possible. Though not in leathers those here for the test and tune with all windows up had to be a little un-pleasant with the sun beating in. Plenty of water and liquids for the drag crew doing its normal best even under the hot conditions.
06 June 2018 Kent, WA – Into June and the mid-week enjoyment of two-wheel competition. Twice a month Olympic Ironworks and owner Gary Tokos sponsor the gathering of bikes to do battle down the Pacific Raceways dragstrip.
Completing the required number of runs to get his license new comer Tom Misfeidt joined in the fun, though going out in the first round I’m sure he will be back. Just another addition to a growing group of bike riders that love to gather for a middle of the week showdown.
Word is getting around of the fun and comradery that that takes place when the group gets together. Laughing, joking and kidding each other as friends do when together but also helping each other when needed and guiding the new racers to the ways of drag bike racing. To put it plain and simple, help each other to “WIN” no matter who it is in the group.
Racers pitted around each other prepping their bikes, helping one another when needed and welcoming new riders to the race program. Combined with the bikes was a test and tune for cars and Jr. Dragsters. They filled up the lanes ready to test their machines and the track surface and its grip.
May 16th is the next date for the bikes, come on out for the mid-week racing.
