The Orient Express Pro Street class will shine when they hit that ‘smooth as glass’ track surface at VMP. With Justin Shakir hitting a record 234.29 MPH run at the last event, he is ready to get back on track to prove he has the power to run with the top dogs. Shakir’s teammate Kenny Brewer ran his personal best at the last event and didn’t leak a drop of oil for a stellar start to the 2021 season. Mark Gargiulo and CJ Fair, absent from the season opener, will join the championship chase at the MTC Engineering Summer Nationals.
The DME Racing Real Street class will be looking for vengeance after an early-season rule revision challenges the turbo standouts from the last event.

Turbocharged rider weights and wheelbases have been adjusted to keep parity in the class tight. Trevor Schnitz will be making his Real Street debut on the HTP
Performance all motor Suzuki GSX-R1000 next weekend. At the season opener, his Dad, Ryan Schnitz, ran a 7.693 on this bike, giving Trevor a solid target for his first Real Street outing.

The HTP Performance Super Stock class will be under watchful eyes as the strict rules in this class require more rider skills than performance adders. Class champion David Fondon won the
season opener but will face tough competition this year as riders are looking to knock him off his pedestal for the 2021 championship. Is Fondon unbeatable?
