Jack Wilson wins PEAK Sweepstakes to drive at 24 Hours of LeMons

Performance Bearing Owner Jack Wilson got a big surprise when he found out his wife Sondra had entered his name in the PEAK Antifreeze Sweepstakes to drive at the 24 hours of LeMons at Chicago Speedway, and he won! He received an all expenses paid trip to Joliet, Ill for the 24 Hours of Lemon's Race as a participant.

The 24 hours of LeMons is similar to the 24 hours of Le Mans, which is a 24 hour endurance race that takes place in France, but the LeMon's variation uses "lemon" cars and is more of a fun race. Jacks teammates included NHRA Top Fuel Driver TJ Rizzo, Evan Smith, Editor of Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords Magazine and several PEAK team members.

Daniluk Resets Canadian Doorslammer Record

Barry Daunlik from Alberta, Canada smoked Canada West Doorslammers ET record October 3rd. Daunlik ran 6.507@210 grabbing the #1 Qualifer Position and Resetting the ET record for the class! Unfortunately a transbrake problem put him out in the first round at this race, but he certainly made his mark...

Earlier this year he also won the NHRA Top Sportsman class at Yellowstone Drag Strip in Montana and was the #1 Qualifier. He grabbed a NHRA Best Engineered award to boot!

Daunlik runs a Rossler TH210XHD transmission, 3.89 gear and a , 832 Ron Miller engine with no power adders in his 68 Camaro. He's upgraded to our Ceramic Bearings in the front wheel bearings and rear end resulting in a measurable gain of 3 mph!

Congratulations Barry on the new record!

"I ran the car at two different tracks after installing Performance Bearing ceramic bearings in the center section and front wheel bearing of my car. The car was tested at two different tracks and both tracks showed a gain of three mph."
Barry Daniluk, Owner/Driver

Janis wins ADRL Pro Extreme at Topeka

Mike Janis picked up his first win of the season at the ADRL Race in Topeka, KS July 4th. Janis qualified 6th and quickly found the combination he needed to lay down a best ever 3.74@200.71 MPH in the semi-finals which was also low ET of the event. That pass put him solidly in the elite ADRL 200 mph club, the fifth member to date.

The New York native defeated Cody Barkladge from Missouri in the final round with a 3.853@197.65 pass to Barkladge's off pace 4.394@149.13.

The next stop on the ADRL Tour is Virginia Motorsports Park and you can be certain that the rest of the field will be paying a lot of attention to that blue and white Firebird come race day!!

Congratulations Mike on a well deserved win!

Brunson discovers hidden ET improvement at ADRL Martin, Michigan

Team Grothus Dragbikes wrote in to tell us about a break through weekend they just had in Martin Michigan at the ADRL Summer Drags V. The team's previous best ET had been a 4.42@166 and they shattered it at Martin. New gains yielded four straight passes of 4.38, 4.34 and 4.32 with mph's ranging from 162-168 mph!

The new low ET's were good enough to get rider Brunson Grothus qualified in the 11th spot of the 16 bike field better than a number of teams that did not make the cut, like the 2008 ADRL PXM champ.

Brunson won his first round on a .010 holeshot with a margin of victory of only .0003 but the races were called later in the day due to rain.

The Martin race will be finished July 4th weekend when the ADRL appears at Topeka, Kansas and you can bet Grothus Dragbikes will be there itching for a victory!

Congratulations Brunson and Team Grothus on your new low ET's and 1st round victory!

Warner 1st to Break 250 MPH - Naked

That's right Naked! But not like you might first think... get your mind out of the gutter... in motorcyle land speed racing, "Naked" means no fairings on the bike, which increases the aerodynamic drag considerably making the feat that much harder to achieve.

At the 2009 Season Opener at the Texas Mile in Goliad, Texas, Bill Warner broke the 250 mph record when he blasted down the track with a 254.449 mph breaking not only the track standing mile record, but also the first "naked"motorcycle to go over 250 mph!

There's only been 5 motorcycle riders in the World to go faster than 250 mph in the standing mile, like Bill, all have been on a Suzuki Hayabusa. However Bill's the only one to have ever done it without fairings!

"The rolling resistance difference with and without these bearings is really incredible, and there is no way I would ever run without them now"
Bill Warner , Wild Brothers Motorsports
