Verl "Smitty" Smith VSR4VETS Double WIN at Woodburn
August 29, 2012
Verl "Smitty" Smith of VSR4VETS' partnership with Scott Martin of Fast Bikes, Inc of Portland, OR, Craig and Vicki Lockwood of Black Widow Cams, John Weiler of Oak Grove Choppers for AHDRA Woodburn Northwest Nitro Nationals Presented by Oak Grove Choppers, Fast Bikes Inc., Mulligans & More proved to be good ones. Smitty took his first double win, made 4 passes in the 8's and multiple passes in excess of 150 mph. Yep, Mr Excitment was on his game for the home crowds.
Smitty just had fun this weekend despite having a few mechanical glitches, he was pleased with the weekend's performance. "We need to figure out how to get the extra oil out of the lower end, we tried an extra fuel pump to recirculate it, but so far it's not working up to our expectations."
"We had about 30 people in our winner's circle pictures for taking the win in Hot Street and Street Pro, it was a thrill but maybe the best part was when I did a burn out on my hot-street bike from the water box to the start line, I could hear the fans cheering me on even with my helmet on, it was awesome."
Our shows at the VA Nursing Care Unit, Beaches, & Dukes Country Bar & Grill went great! We had lots of swag from Columbia HD, and Bikers Choice for the vets! Rickie and Dakota from the AHDRA joined forces along with Steve Dorn & Tommy Grimes (from Ray Price Racing) as we fired up our bikes for the anxious crowd and handed out discount coupons.
Please remember, IF IT WASN'T FOR OUR VETERANS WE COULDN'T DO WHAT WE DO!
