 Connie, Fastest Woman on an American V-Twin in the World "2006"

Hi every one, Sorry its been a long time since I've done this article. I'm going to try to catch you up on what I've been doing, also I want to keep this Race Day page alive by bringing updates on Drag Racing back to the pages of The Motorcyclist's Post. It needs some more talk about Drag Racing in it, don't you think? So if there is any story's about motorcycle Drag Racing I need to know, because I'm only at some of the events out there, so help me out. I don't just want to copy from other sanction's web sites. So send me your own Drag Racing story's. Or your driver or race team did something great or maybe not so great email me, any questions that you have on drag racing I will try to get the answer, if I don't know I will find the answer. So lets keep this page alive, email me - ccride@aol.com.

OK, well where do I start, I guess lets start with I'm back on an American V-Twin (NHRA Pro Stock Buell) if you did not know. My TL1000 Suzuki is up for Sale, if any body is interested contact me through my email. I can only ride one. Or if someone wants to buy or lease the seat contact me. I do love the Buell the best -- it is a beast. Still learning on what it takes to get it down the track. Been running this season without any major sponsorship or $$ backing so its been hard to keep up with NHRA. Somehow I was able to get 8 of their events in and keep my Pro status for 2007. But I was unable to keep the engine to its peak performance due to a low budget.So I went to some AMDRAGS and AHDRA races closer to home and did well. At the AMDRAGS If your not sure who that is -- its Harley-style drag racing. Their first season out, they had 3 races, I went too two and boy did I have fun- Hannum's H-D Summer Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway, Reading, PA. It was great I qualified number one, And won the race, it was the best weekend I ever had. So I had to return for their next race.The Mid-Atlantic Nationals At Maryland international Raceway in Budds Creek, Maryland. I had another career best event at the Mid-Atlantic Nationals, qualifying number one, establishing new performance records, taking the win and locking up the first AMDRAGS Outlaw Pro Stock Championship. My first Championship.

Unfortunately the AMDRAGS director Buzz Kanter stated. They have decided to suspend the AMDRAGS race program. At least until the financial climate of the motorcycle industry improves. Sponsors' budgets are shrinking, the cost of hauling race bikes to the tracks is climbing, and attendance is declining." (Boy don't I know that it cost money to race and move your bikes from Race track to Race track.) While there are no races scheduled for 2007, Kanter has not ruled out resurrecting the AMDRAGS race program, including the FLASH® (Fastest Legal All Street Harley's) Race, and Thunder Alley Race School in the future. "The AMDRAGS concept is solid, especially when promoted in American Iron Magazine, the world's best selling Harley-oriented magazine. " Kanter stated. "While we have no plans for AMDRAGS in 2007, we are keeping all options open. If you want to read more on this go check out www.AMDRAGS.com also you will see all the other winners and how they finished in their classes (includes pictures). I wish Buzz Kanter and Matt Polito the best in what ever they do in the future. Thanks for trying. I know for a fact a lot of racers and crew enjoyed coming to the AMDRAGS we were all treated with highest respect in all classes.

I also went two AHDRA races, S & S Jim McClure Nationals presented by Drag Specialties at Virginia Motorsports Park. Went to the semi's and lost fire to the bike in the burn out, and we could not get it to restart. Found out later the battery solder connection broke - That's Drag Racing - Mike Lozano went on to win. I had another career best event at the SCREAMIN' EAGLE PERFORMANCE PARTS NATIONALS AT ROCKINGHAM DRAGWAY, I took the top spot with a 7.15 at 182 MPH qualifying number one with the quickest and fastest pass, and winning the race with my personal best of the season 7.12 on my new Buell. It was great, it marked my personal best performance and my first AHDRA win. For more information on AHDRA go visit www.AHDRA.com for all the final standings for the season, I did not run for season points at the AHDRA.

If you were unable to get out to the races or you want to see this Buell up close, or just talk about Drag racing mark your calendars. I will have it on display at 3 of the Northeast Motorcycle Expo shows of Kev-Marv Productions LLC - Boston, MA - Feb 3-4 2007, Somerset, NJ - Feb 10-11 2007 & Fredericksburg, VA - Feb 17-18 2007. for more details watch for the adds in the Motorcyclist's Post or visit there web site www.kevmarv.com. I also have some open dates on my calendar for personal appearances for 2007.

OK that's it for me, so if you want this page to stay I need some help tell me who you want to read about or if you have something good send it to me.
You can reach me though my web site www.ccriderracing.cc or email ccride@aol.com
