NHRA lead TV announcer Brian Lohnes has done some reflecting on the 2022 Camping World Campaign and recognized Karen Stoffer’s record-shattering Gainesville weekend as the most flawless NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle victory of 2022.
It’s hard to argue with the choice as Stoffer annihilated the long-standing previous record of 6.72 with a 6.66 and scored the final round victory over Angie Smith with a 6.70 to a 6.72.
“In what will stand for some time as the single greatest single day of performance in the history of Pro Stock Motorcycle, Stoffer didn’t just dominate the race, she matched or bettered the existing world record four times on her way to a victory,” Lohnes wrote. “Stoffer turned in what was arguably as close to a perfect race as any drag racing team could ever hope for. Running under the national record four times without the benefit a single qualifying pass and winning in conditions that flummoxed some of their most experienced rivals while not missing a lick on the tree or the tune is why this is the most flawless Pro Stock Motorcycle win of the 2022 season.”
At the conclusion of the 2022 season Stoffer announced her retirement from the class. The talented veteran racer could leave quite a legacy as many insiders believe the 6.66 could be an untouchable number for many seasons to come.
