A Day At The Races Part 1. NHRA Keystone Nationals

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to hang out back stage with the pros at an NHRA drag race? Have you ever wanted to go “inside” a race hauler and talk with a pro driver to see how they operate? The National Hot Rod Association is the only major motorsports sanctioning body which allows fans the opportunity to get up close and personal with their favorite drivers at each and every national event. Every ticket is a pit pass, but still there are areas that are off limits to the majority of fans. But I got the hookup!

20 years ago I made my NHRA debut in Pro Stock Motorcycle at the 1995 Keystone Nationals aboard Harry Lartigue’s Bell Additives Suzuki. I remember it like it was yesterday. I qualified #9 and made it to the second round where I was defeated by my friend, mentor and winningest Pro Stock Motorcycle racer of all time, the late great Dave Schultz. Since that time I assembled my own team, won national events, retired and developed lasting relationships with some amazing NHRA racers, staff and fans who I call my “racing family.” Go behind the scenes with me at the 2015 NHRA Keystone Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway as I talk with some of the fastest names in professional drag racing. “A Day At The Races” Part 1 hi lights many of your favorite Pro Stock Motorcycle drivers as they prepare for Sunday’s eliminations. Stay tuned for part 2 where I get up close and personal with 2012 and newly crowned 2015 Top Fuel Champion Antron Brown, as well as the people who make NHRA the fastest name in motorsports!

  1. Hey Reggie! It is great to see you out at the track again interacting with all the racers. I grew up in the Northeast where racing bikes was super hot during the 1970’s through 1990’s and remember seeing you at Atco and Englishtown. For all of us who know of you, your skills and abilities were superior to many of the riders of the time and you had the upmost respect from all of us who participated.

    I wish you all the best in your endeavors and continue to enlighten people with all you do Sir. Best Wishes to you.
