Chip Ellis went to the winner’s circle at Maryland International Raceway on a Coby Adams – Vance & Hines Real Street Bike in 2010.

“Chip has been racing forever and actually expressed interested in riding a Pro Street bike at the beginning of the year. So when Richard (Gadson) recommend calling him, I thought it was a great idea,“ Mitchell said. “Chip has many accolades but he isn’t on the Pro Street GOAT list and this will be a great opportunity for him to make his mark in the class. I am so confident in riding ability that I know this will be great fit for us at the IDBL event”
