29 May 2019 Kent, WA – It was Mid-week motorcycle racing for the Olympic Ironworks sponsored series at Pacific Raceways along with a TnT for the Jr.’s and whoever else desired to test their ride at Pacific Raceways.
The next PRDC race is May 29th.
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”.
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.
Lots of great images – click here to go to the photo album.
The next race is August 22nd, see you then.
11 July 2018 Kent, WA – Hard to believe that only two more dates left to the 2018 Wednesday PRDC at Pacific Raceways. The season is flying by as this mid-week event keeps growing and bringing new riders to the program.
A fine looking white Harley chopper, new to the track with that ride went three rounds lining up against the pure drag bikes pushing some to break out trying to catch this high 12 second chopper.
The next Olympic Ironworks PRDC race is July 22.
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.
23 Aug 2017 Kent, WA – The last mid-week race for the season greeted all with summer weather that speaks drag racing. Mostly sunny and just into the seventies gave the bike riders a break when all leathered up.
As for the bikes tonight former track champ Jake Havens stepped out of his pickup truck and it’s sitting position to his Hayabusa to earn the top spot and its winnings this evening.
Getting a pure street bike to launch from a dead stop takes a bit of trial and error. Thanks though to those who take part at every event helping those new to the track and race series. Add to this a test and tune in between the bike runs can also bring new drivers to the track.
Not just something to do on a Wednesday afternoon/evening, pure race cars use this time to check out a new combination or just to check things out for the upcoming weekend race. And to this degree you never know who with what race car is going to show up in the middle of the week.
The next race is Aug. 23 see you then.
