Tonglet Misses Starting Lineup on Friday

Published on June 25, 2011 by   ·   No Comments

A season that has already featured highs and lows, suddenly hit the basement Saturday afternoon when LE Tonglet did not qualify for the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals.

The reigning NHRA Full Throttle Pro Stock Motorcycle champion struggled with motor problems in his last outing at Englishtown, N.J. and lost in the first round using a borrowed motor. The motors were repaired, but losing Friday’s two important qualifying sessions to rain did not help.

The driver of the Nitro Fish/Tonglet Racing Pro Stock Motorcycle was 13th after his opening quarter-mile time of 7.098 seconds, 189.15 mph, but he couldn’t better it on the next run (7.121 at 188.17 mph) and dropped out of the starting line-up.
