Motorcycle drag racing legend Paul Gast put together a streak of 3-second passes aboard his Fast By Gast Hayabusa to pick up the win in his first PDRA Pro Nitrous Motorcycle appearance of the season in Norwalk, Ohio, May 29-30. Other than a 4.00 in the first qualifying session, Gast dipped into the 3s on every pass, including a 3.998 at 177.67 in the final round. He defeated Ashley Owens, who ran a 4.026 at 176.19.
“Running in the 3s every run was a big deal,” said Gast, who thanked all of the employees at Fast By Gast. “The bike’s really fast. We pushed it pretty good out here, especially for the air conditions, but we didn’t push it to the limit of what it might’ve been able to do. I’m just pleased it ran in the 3s, pretty deep down in there. The bike was fast and it deserved to win the race. I was along for the ride. I finally did good in the final.”
Gast started the day with a 3.961 at 178.64 to handily defeat Kuwait’s Mohammad Alawad and his 4.106. He nearly matched the run on a single in the semifinals, posting a 3.966 at 176.03 to get lane choice for the final round.
Owens qualified No. 4 on his McKinney Motorsports entry before running a 4.038 at 175.75 on a first-round single, as teammate Eric McKinney wasn’t able to make the call due to mechanical damage sustained on Saturday morning’s final qualifying session. Owens then improved slightly to a 4.035 at 174.19 to beat Meshal Al-Saber and his 4.06 in the semis.
