Bradford Nipped by Tonglet in Columbus

In a good, close round 1 Pro Stock Motorcycle drag race, Tom Bradford came up just short of holding his early lead over G.T. Tonglet at the NHRA event at National Trail Raceway near Columbus, Ohio.

"For our team, if I don't cut a great light and run a pass out my wazoo, I don't win a round," said Tom, maintaining a good attitude. "If we aren't on kill, we just don't have any racer luck in the bank yet. I don't know any other way to put it.

"Don't get me wrong, I love every minute of it and I'm not discouraged at all. We went into that round wholeheartedly expecting to win. We know why we came up short and it was lane choice. 'Til about the eighth mile we had him beat. Then I felt the bumps come in. If we'd been in the left lane we'd have won that race. There weren't too many rounds won out of the right lane. But we were getting off the starting line well, which had been a problem."

Tom Bradford and the Balbayis Asset Consulting/Hal's Speedshop Buell race next June 9-11 at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois.
