NHDRO Pro Street – 6 Second | 220+ MPH | 650+ Horsepower Motorcycle Drag Racing – Eliminations

NHDRO Motorcycle Drag Racing Series
The Big Payback presented by CC Powersports of Clarksville
Featuring the BB Racing Bracket Shootout
Lucas Oil Raceway
October 2-4, 2020

The most dramatic moment of the weekend came when Pro Street racer Brett Ware went 12 O’clock and over in round one of PST eliminations. Ware was mostly OK, with a compression fracture in his back that, fortunately, requires little more than rest and common sense. His bike didn’t fare to badly either, leaking nary a drop of anything despite sliding to the 330—a showcase for Ware’s and Quicktime Racing boss Rudy Sanzottera’s fabrication and welding skills. As soon as Ware was scooped into the ambulance, racing was able to resume. Thoughtful!

Once again, Gabe Frederick and his turbocharged ‘Busa dominated everything until the final round. Frederick gapped the field by over 4/10ths in qualifying but left for home still winless-at-Indy after going -.002 red in the final.

Frederick’s gaffe propelled Ware’s teammate Brad Christian to the win and the championship. “It’s been one hell of a year,” said Christian. “With the COVID and the rain at damn near every NHDRO event, we had very little testing. I didn’t go as fast as I wanted to this year.

“I had so many 7.00s last year, and Rudy worked his ass off to get me into the 6s. But we fought wheelies and spinning on the line during the little testing we had. So at both of the events we put a conservative A to B tune up in the bike and got the job done.

“I want to thank my better half Jessica Sanzottera for believing in me and pushing me to do better, and also putting up with all of what goes into racing. Rudy for all of what he does for me and trusting me to ride Pops’ bike. All of the Quicktime crew for their help. Gabe Frederick and Nem (Nemecio “Lucky” Beltran) for the help this weekend. The crew at NHDRO for giving us a place to race. All of our sponsors—Quicktime Motorsports. A.I. Choppers, Wossner pistons and rods, Worldwide Bearings, Low Dollar Motorsports. Phoenix Fittings Company, Midwest Turbo Center, DME and Dunlop Tires, Western Powersports, Cometic Gaskets, Biker Kitty, and M and M Powder Works. I can’t wait to see what we can do in the 2021 season.”
