Carrie "The Amazon" Tate Sets a New Record
at the AHDRA Spring Nitro Nationals on Mickey Thompson Tires
June 6, 2012 STOW, OH
Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels congratulates Carrie "The Amazon" Tate on an incredible performance at the All Harley Drag Racing Association (AHDRA) Carolina Spring Nitro Nationals at Rockingham Dragway. Coming into the semi finals, Tate competed against legendary racer Mark Cox, the number one qualifier, and thrilled the crowd with a 7.29-second run on Mickey Thompson 31.0/14.0-15M tires (Part# 3073M) setting a new record for a female Nitro Harley pilot, racing impressively close to Cox's quick 7.167-second run.
"It was an honor to compete with Mark," said Tate. "My run was crisp and straight as an arrow, but not enough to beat his wicked fast pass. I look forward to lining up with Mark again this season with my bike, 'Brutus,' and my Mickey Thompson tires."
