This year’s Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals will feature a first: the wicked-fast Top Fuel Harleys!
Pro Stock Motorcycle will not be on the race program this year, but will be replaced with the Mickey Thompson Tires NHRA Top Fuel Harley Drag Racing Series, the NHRA’s only nitromethane-powered two-wheeled bikes. These bike will blow you away, as riders drag their feet and crawl around on the back of the bikes to keep them going straight. It’s the fastest motorcycle racing action on the circuit, with bikes capable of 230 mph and nearly 6.2 seconds.
By comparison, Pro Stock Motorcycles run about 200 mph at 6.7 seconds or so.
