Verl "Smitty" Smith VSR4VETS Makes NWDB FINALS
June 15, 2012
After a rainout, the North West Drag Bike Association fought the weather but completed their 1st race of the 2012 race series at Woodburn Dragstrip!
"Saturday qualifying was cold & wintery and the VSR4VETS race teams struggled all day. BUT after much discussions and cussing about the weather, Smitty brought the Pro Street bike to the finals. We ran Kerry Drost on his Pro-street Hyabusa and he had to hit a 50 shot of nitrous to get around us. We were a very respectable runner up with 9.10 to the Drost's 9.05, a real good drag race!!. We learned a lot this weekend; so there are lower E/Ts to come, stay tuned!
Special thanks to my crew Stanley, Lori, Shawn, Katie & Stan 2 because I worked their fingers to the bone and also Special thanks to my buddy Bear & Glenn & Jaynie @ Motor Whiskey for their help on the flywheels, and also Charlie and Carmen @ Biker's Choice for all the great parts, VSR4VETS wouldn't be at the track without their support! Next stop Sturgis for The WMDRA/Amsoil Nationals, then back to Woodburn for the AHDRA Northwest Nitro Nationals on August 25th and 26th!
VSR4VETS will announce the dates for the vet shows very soon!
Please remember, if it wasn't for our veterans we couldn't do what we do!
