Enjoy your VIP pass inside the sport of NHRA Top Fuel Nitro Harley Drag Racing from the Thunder Valley Nationals at gorgeous Bristol Dragway in Tennessee. In this comprehensive, in-depth video we will take you inside the pit area of every competitor to learn about the drivers, teams, motorcycles, maintenance and more. Cycledrag’s Jack Korpela is joined by pro racer and shop owner Michael Beland, who provides great insight and technical knowledge.
We give you a good look around the impressive Bruton Smith drag strip and take you in the pit areas of Jay Turner, Beau Layne, Rickey House, Doug Vancil, Mike Scott, Tracy Kile, Armon Furr, Rich Vreeland, Tii Tharpe, Bob Malloy and Tak Shigematsu. We talk to many crew members and team leaders including the wives of Mike Romine, Vancil and Turner. We catch up with JT Toth, one of the new owners of the AMRA. We gain valuable information about the fuel systems of these motorcycles, the straps on the top of the cylinders and more. We watch Jay Turner run into a very peculiar issue at the end of this video.
