22 Aug 2018 Kent, WA – Nearly a month between races, the longest in the bike series, brought the scooters back to the dragstrip for some mid-week action.
A pretty steady group in this bunch with new racers joining in as this program sponsored by Olympic Ironworks MC and its owner Gary Tokos.
Besting the group and ending in the winner’s circle a new rider grabbed the goodies – John Goms, who threw down a perfect triple zero reaction time and ran so close to his dial-in to top Tom Misfeldt in the last race of the season.
25 July 2018 Kent, WA – Heat and hydration – It seems like mother nature is treating this season of racing from one extreme to another in 2018. All drag racers dislike the rain as it stops racing in it’s tracks, but the heat it will stop “YOU”.
There was plenty of liquid seen all over the grounds attempting to keep everyone cool, at the 6th event of the Olympic Ironworks Motorcycle PRDC event.
Keeping his cool and throwing down a number one qualifying spot and riding it all the way to the “WINNERS” circle, made for a story book day for Mike Evans. Jacked from a perfect light to claim the number one spot and getting a break in one round was all that Mike needed to pick up his first Olympic Ironworks mid-week racing.
20 June 2018 Kent, WA – When Mother Nature brings out the sunny days the drag strip just loves it, but when she starts combining conditions she can make it down rite miserable.
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.
Let’s hope the next race on July 11th has more favorable conditions by toning down the heat that tonight’s winner Jim Werre and his competitors went thru getting to the winners circle.
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.
Ending the night in the winner’s circle Mark Sires got the trophy and cash as Tyler Baker ran too fast. The next race is 6-20-18.
16 May 2018 Kent, WA – Mid-week bike racing gained a few new entries this week to the series sponsored by Olympic Ironworks and Gary Tokos.
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.
This night Mark Sires and Thomas Agar faced off in the finals with Mark grabbing the top spot. Next race June 6th.
02 May 2018 Kent, WA – Starting off the summer schedule Wednesday night the motorcycle riders were first up. This mid-week race has grown into a great meet and race around a bunch of friends.
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.
Outlasting the rest of the class Mark Sires saved the best for last running one-thousands off his dial-in over Mike Evans who was a little off the mark.
20 Jan 2018, Auburn, WA – The 2017 Pacific Raceways Banquet crowned the 2017 Summit ET Swift Tools ET Series Champions at Emerald Downs in Auburn. Congrats to all the newly crowned champions, and special thanks to all the sponsors for their support.
