Team HeadBlade and Capone Racing - Win, RU and Fun Times Out West
August 30, 2012
Shaun Reno, AHDRA Pro Mod pilot for Team HeadBlade, and Frank Capone, of Capone Racing, riding multiple bikes including an AHDRA Pro Mod bike and a Rush Pro Gas bike earned some points and had some fun at the AHDRA Oak Grove Choppers, Fast Bikes, Inc., Mulligans & MORE Northwest Nitro Nationals in Woodburn, OR.
According to Capone, "There were lots of very cool fans. These people were so excited and interested in our program. It's always great to have folks ask such great questions and understand the answers. We were runner up to Joey Thomson in Pro Mod, but we reset 1/8th mile national mph record @ 132.10."
"We won in the Rush Pro Gas class. It was an eventful day, we had mechanical issues on Sunday. Weird race, I'd lost to Croneburger but he hit the wall (might have hand surgery, but all in all he's going to be ok) and was eliminated. Then In the finals, Stan Sheppards' bike did not fire, I had a single.
Shaun Reno on Team HeadBlade qualified #2 but went out in the semi's. However, Reno and Capone continue to move up in the points and it's getting "that" time of the season when each point has value.
Capone's team consists of Mark Godin, Richard Murray, Craig Fisher, Lorne Buchanan and Katy Miller.
