Nine short months later, 2009 NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle Champion Matt Smith piloted his Pro Extreme “Drag Bagger” to victory at the Qatar Racing Club (QRC). This was one for the history books as it was the first win of the Pro Extreme Motorcycle class by a V-Twin ever!
This win comes on the heels of sitting a new track record of 4.12 during the January segment. Those are pretty impressive numbers for a motorcycle that was a pencil drawing less than a year ago!
In addition to his win in the PXM class, Smith went to the semi’s in owner Al-Anabi’s ’68 Camaro in a very competitive Pro Extreme division.
The QRC “Battle of the Belts” has two more events planned to round out their season. Round seven is scheduled for February 10-11, and the finals will be held February 17-18.
Each motorcycle comes equipped with a highly modified S&S Cycle billet 160 cubic inch pushrod engine in a 60° V-Twin configuration.
