The AMA/AHDRA All-American motorcycle drag racing series crowned its third year of champions in the Bill and Crissy Rowe era, despite battling some serious weather set-backs.
The season started with a Gainesville opener that was shortened by shutdown weepers on a beautiful sunny day. A rare Rockingham rain cancellation initiated the first-ever AHDRA/AMRA combined McClure Nationals. And finally, a Florida State of Emergency brought on by Hurricane Nicole canceled the Gainesville Finals. Sometimes, that’s the luck.
But champions persevere, and AHDRA recognizes their best, tenth in a series.
Atlanta-based StreetKing Racing fields a Harley-Davidson Bagger team that is laid back off the track, but torridly competitive on. StreetKing Khole Sellers won the AHDRA MTC Pro-Comp Outlaw championship.
“I started racing (Baggers) in 2019,” said Sellers. “Up until that point I had never rode a Harley. I grew up drag racing dirt bikes and ATVs on dirt strips.
“First time on the track was that year at the Man Cup. It only took one pass and I was completely hooked.
“I rode our all-motor bike at a couple events this year and also ‘Cherry,’ our nitrous bike. Next season a Turbo
“First and foremost I want to thank God for the opportunity and StreetKing Racing for all the support. It was a great year and we are looking forward to the season to come. We love racing with AHDRA and hope that our sport keeps growing.”
