Huff says, “The bike did everything it was supposed to do and we still have room for more. We came off the trailer with a 200.5mph pass and did our service turn around and backed it up with the 202.8mph pass.”
Steve Huff Motorsports will be attending the rescheduled Mike Cook’s Shootout the second week of October at the Bonneville Salt Flats, giving Huff the opportunities to break the records for AMA 1350APS-PF, AMA 1350APS-PG and FIM World Record.
“We were running into a slight headwind and we used all the gear that we had. Our sponsor, PBI Sprockets, is sending us another rear sprocket with one less tooth along with new bearings from Worldwide Bearings; should get us to 205mph on the salt and 200 at El Mirage.” Huff and the team will be at El Mirage Dry Lake Bed October 17 – 18th for the SCTA event.
“Being the first 80-inch pushrod motorcycle to go over 200mph is something I am really proud of,” Huff continued,
“I’ve had a sticker in memory of Jim McClure on every bike I’ve ever raced and I was not going to stop until I took him on another 200mph run. Jim was with me when I made my first 200mph pass drag racing and he is still with me every time I race. I’ll always cherish our friendship and his memory. This one is for you JAM.”
