Drag racing KOTS

Yesterday they had KOTs at Great Lakes in Wisconsin.

Some of you know that my cousin drag races. Actually my cousins son to be accurate. Phil Stoll. His dad Dan also used to race along with me and my brother. I was a complete amateur and did it for fun. Did Ok though.

Well Phil won the KOTs yesterday at Great Lakes. I wasn't able to make it myself as I was at the Notre Dame Miami game.

Here's a pic right before the winning take off. He's on the left. Supposed to have some video so if I get it I'll post it up.

That's no easy task to come out on top in the King of the Streets event...he definately had to have some great reaction times and a hot hand to win...I hope he made a ton of cash! What kind of bike was he riding and what kind of numbers did he turn on the winning run?

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

Yes I agree. No easy task. They have some rules to keep this type of racing real. They check your clutch, no slicks. No wheelie bars etc... I wish I could have made it out to see it but I was at the Notre Dame game.

I haven't heard yet on the time that he turned. He was on the white Busa in the pic. Cocaine. Raced a ZX14 in the final.

Here's a video link. It's not the best quality.

I think you live in my neck of the woods from a previous post. They also live in the area. We'll have to get together sometime for a ride or some beers.

Sure...maybe ride up to the Grove sometime, too. Or some other race or event.
Send me a PM or I'll send you one in a few days.

Phil, Stotz, Dustin, etc. None of these guys are amateurs, they've been doing this for quite a while. It could have been anybody on top, congrats to Phil.

Very cool! Hey Kenny, what kind of BHP and torque can be expected out of a turbo 'busa engine, and a rough cost?

Loaded question, but over 600 and no idea on cost, but if you have to ask then it's not worth it. Pushing the envelope ain't cheap.

I'm Friends with Frankie and Phil. I think Frankie was a bit of game, he put THAT CBR in the 6.x seconds... All those guys are as pro as it gets.


If I race next year, I need one of those guys to get me doing better launches.

Better launches are the product of practice...practice...practice. I'd like to get a group together to go to the Grove and/or Byron on T&T nights and days (like Tuesdays at the Grove) and work together at learning, perfecting and practicing skills.
There's only a few weeks left this season but come Spring it would be fun and help everyone interested in doing some drag racing and those who do other types of racing learn how to get killer holeshots to the first turn.

I was definitely hoping Dustin would have won that one. He is a member of clsb here.

The track was also scraped and not prepped. It was a like a roller rink for those 8 second cars. That's why some of them crashed.

Could be. I was not there so I wouldn't know.

I know how that is...If we do get some CLSB riders to go to the strip, even occasionally, I'll post it and everyone will be welcome to join us...including you... if you're free!

How much does a run down the strip cost? I'm interested in learning how to launch better, but feel I'd embarrass myself with my current launches

Weeknight test & tune at Great lakes Dragaway (Union Grove, Wi...AKA 'Da Grove) is $30 on Tuesday nights and $35 on Wednesday and Thursday it's also $35 for bikes only. EDIT: Those fees are for the whole night and you can make as many passes down the strip as you want.
If your bike is faster than 120 MPH you are required to have full leathers. Your bike must pass a very basic tech inspection...no leaks, spring return throttle, chain guard, no excessively worn tires. Because they are an NHRA track if the bike makes runs faster than a 9.99 ET you are technically required to have an NHRA license but as long as you're running safely they're usually "loose" on that, especially if you're there just for T&T. 9.99 is pretty fast...You'd need a pretty extensively modded bike to do that consistantly and even if your bike is that fast if you're there to practice launches you can alway back out early to avoid the 9.99 ET.

They have to use a stock clutch!! This is exciting race to watch. 2000hp cars going down a skating rank is a slight to see.
