Brock’s Performance Riders Take Wins & Break Records at XDA’s Bike Bash

 

XDA Delivers Proven Records at VMP

The Xtreme Dragbike Association’s 2nd Annual MTC Engineering Bike Bash at Virginia Motorsports Park was nothing short of legendary.

The world-renowned facility owned by Tommy and Judy Franklin, along with VP Tyler Crossnoe, welcomed the XDA for what was to be a record-smashing weekend. With 791 racers, it was the largest motorcycle drag racing event in Virginia. Record class turnouts also included an all-time high of forty-five entries in Vance & Hines 4.60. Orient Express Pro Street and DME Racing Real Street produced world record numbers for a weekend now known as the quickest in XDA history.

DME Racing Real Street

Winner – Brandon Teasley / Runner-up – Jeremy Teasley
#1 Qualifier – Jeremy Teasley 7.525
ET Record – Brandon Teasley 7.516
 
DME Racing Real Street Royal Rumble paid out $5,000 to win and featured a 32-Bike field at this event. The smack talk amongst the riders leading up to the event was out of control. And to add fuel to the fire XDA offered up a bounty of $100 to any racer that could take out the class leaders of Brandon Teasley, Spencer Claycomb, and Ben Knight. And just in case that wasn’t enough, Jason Miller lit the fuse by offering up a one-of-a-kind award for the first rider to run in the forties.
Spencer Claycomb

Class champion Spencer Claycomb is equipped with BST Carbon Fiber wheels.

A record number of Real Street riders showed up on Thursday before the event for testing ready to tear the tack apart to get into the forties. When qualifying came around on Friday night, most racers struggled to make clean A-to-B passes because they had thrown so much into their tunes. Spencer Claycomb who hands down has more hours into his bike than any other racer in the class took the #1 qualifying position with a 7.668.
 
In round two of qualifying, Jeremy Teasley ran a 7.525 to break the ET record held at 7.531 by Spencer Claycomb and took over the #1 qualifying spot.
 
In round three things started to heat up when Brandon Teasley, one of the heavier riders in the class, ran a 7.587 to take the #2 qualifying spot on his nitrous Kawasaki ZX-14. Going into eliminations, the Teasley’s would have a hold on the top qualifying positions.
 
Ben Knight qualified #3 with a 7.607 on his Hayabusa Supercharger, teammate Claycomb was behind him with a 7.643 to keep the ‘Shake and Bake’ team on opposite sides of the ladder. Mark Hylton qualified #5 with a 7.705 on his all motor Hayabusa to give us a little of everything in the class’s top spots.
 
A schedule change landed the last qualifier for Real Street on Sunday morning, only a few hours before their first round of eliminations. This would be an advantage for the entire class to tune to the track conditions going into round one.
Ashley Sweeney Real Street

Ashley Sweeney’s GSXR is equipped with our 4-2-1 Sidewinder Exhaust system.

Husband and wife of Michael and Ashley Sweeney made up for not racing at the last event by taking wins in round one. The Royal Rumble brought out Pro Street legend Rodney Williford who took a first-round win over Brittany Bohne. Ralphie Navarro returned to his first event since his accident last year with Shane Stubbs on riding duty. Stubbs took out Hylton in round one.
Shane Stubbs Real Street

Class champions Anibal Merced and Claycomb both took round one wins as well. The lowest ET of round one went to Jeremy Teasley running a 7.531.
 
In round two of eliminations, Merced earned $100 in bounty money, taking Ben Knight out on a holeshot win with a 7.57 to his 7.53. Brandon Teasley, Claycomb, and Stubbs would get easy wins when their competition broke and was unable to run. The highlight of round two would go to the faceoff between Jeremy Teasley and Rodney Williford. These two have faced off many times, but never in Real Street. Teasley had the advantage with Williford only having a handful of passes on his bike and winning over him with a 7.620.
Brandon Teasley Real Street Winner

Brandon Teasley won the race, set the record, and now leads points on his ZX-14 equipped with BST Carbon Fiber Wheels.

Jeremy had an earned bye in round three, automatically sending him the semi-final. Class champions Claycomb and Merced met in round three, giving Merced a chance and winning another bounty. Unfortunately for Merced he broke traction about 70 feet out and fought with his ZX-14 the rest of the pass but couldn’t catch back up to Claycomb, who took the win with a 7.64. The standout pass went to Brandon, who took the ET record away from his brother running a 7.516. The fans went crazy when the board lit up!

Round four is usually the final for Real Street; however, the larger field size gave the class an extra round of competition to earn a win. Brandon had an earned bye this round while brother Jeremy had to earn the win and attempt to take back his record. Jeremy could not get the record back, but he took out Claycomb with a 7.535 to earn some extra cash on the bounty for him.

Going into the final, the sibling rivalry was at the forefront. Brandon, who has watched his brother win thousands of races and break hundreds of records, wanted this win and record for himself. And Jeremy had every intention of taking it all from him. Father and the crew chief for the boys, Crow Teasley, got both bikes set at the line and then stood in the middle of the track, knowing that the family would ultimately celebrate any outcome together. Brandon cut his best light of the day while Jeremy cut his worse light. And as they raced side-by-side down the track, it was a nail biter waiting to see the win light come one. When the right lane win light came on, the starting line crowd went wild for Brandon, who ran a 7.554 to his brother’s losing 7.599. Brandon Teasley took the win, the record, and the points lead.

HTP Performance Super Stock

Winner – David Fondon / Runner-up – Jeremy Teasley
#1 Qualifier – David Fondon 8.834
Record – David Fondon 161.96 mph
 
The MTC Engineering Bike Bash was the second event for the newly added HTP Super Stock class, and their attendance increased by six to qualify an impressive thirty-one riders. Dustin Clark from Indiana recently qualified #1 at an NHDRO event and decided to make the ten-hour trip to Virginia to see how he would perform with XDA. Clark qualified in the #2 spot with an 8.848 behind points leader David Fondon’s 8.834. Fondon also reset the MPH record on his first qualifying pass running 161.96 mph.
Dustin Clark

Dustin Clark took the #2 qualifying position equipped with our Alien Head Exhaust system.

We also welcomed our second competitor from Puerto Rico, Pablo Gonzalez, he qualified with a 9.04 on his 2019 Kawasaki ZX-14. Brandon Pryer showed up with a new bike, at the last event he ran a 2018 Suzuki GSX-R1000. For this event, he entered the first BMW into the class aboard a 2020 S1000RR. Unfortunately for Pryer, he found himself paired with Jeremy Teasley in round one, who ran an 8.88 to his 9.53 ending his weekend early.
 
In round one of eliminations, Jyrec Givens, who runner-upped at the last event, took a round one loss to Russell Dennison, opening up the #2 spot in points that he no longer holds. Dustin Clark ran the quickest lap at 8.783, while the session’s fastest lap belonged to Ryan Schnitz at 160.12 mph.
Jeremy Teaselt Super Stock 2020

Jeremy Teasley on the Brock’s Performance 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Bike Build known as ‘Gixzilla’ took a runner-up finish.

Because this class is all about the rider’s clutch hand control, this class has the worst reaction time average of all of the other classes held at XDA. For example, riders were winning rounds with .176, .196, and .200 reaction times. In two events, we have only seen eleven passes with reactions times under .100, demonstrating how hard these riders are working to control their horsepower at the starting line. The best reaction time of five rounds of competition came from Chris Moore, who had a .052 but unfortunately lost to Richard Gadson running an 8.896 to his 8.985 in round three of eliminations.
David Fondon Super Stock Winner

David Fondon won the race, set the record, and now leads points on his ZX-10R equipped with our Penta-Carbon Exhaust System.

 
Points leader David Fondon took out Schnitz, Dennison, and Richard Gadson to reach his second final round appearance. On the other side of the ladder hand clutch master Jeremy Teasley took out Pryer, Gonzalez, Curtis McDougald, and Clark to meet Fondon. At the last event, Fondon took Teasley out in round two of competition. Going into the final, Teasley had just won Pro Street, then lost the Real Street final, and would now be looking for another win, not another loss.
 
In two events, David Fondon has always held the quickest pass of every session, however, in the semi-final, Teasley was quicker with an 8.919 when he took out Dustin Clark. Fondon ran a 8.994 when he sent Richard Gadson to the trailer. So, for the final Teasley had hoped to outrun the points leader. Teasley cut a better light, but Fondon threw down his quickest pass of the weekend running an 8.756 to Teasley’s 8.895. We might need to check Fondon’s bike for an override button. The rider from Puerto Rico has a stronghold on the points lead and taking the championship from him now will be nearly impossible.
David Fondon Wins Super Stock
 

Tommie’s Motorsports DMV Bulls

Winner – Kevin Johnson / Quick Money
Kevin Johnson on ‘Quick Money’ threw down a repeat performance from the last race remaining undefeated this year at XDA. Johnson took out Cody Lowe on ‘Shonuff’ in the final for the second time this year after defeating the ‘5th Street Bully’ ridden by Jermaine Proctor in the semi-final. Johnson made easy work of the competition and is looking forward to defending his winning streak next month at the DME Racing Fall Nationals.

The FBR Shop 5.60

Winner – Jimmie Miller / Runner-up – Shayne Proctor
The FBR Shop 5.60 class was on fire at the MTC Engineering Bike Bash featuring the most consistent runs by racers the class has ever seen. Robert Johnson qualified on top with a 5.604 leading the forty-one bike field.
Routine winner circle patrons Jimmie Miller and Shayne Proctor fought through five rounds of competition to meet each other in the Sunday night final. Miller won against Michael Rankin, Wes Brown, Jim Mauro, and points leader Dustin Lee by cutting great lights and never straying far from that 5.60 index. On Proctor’s side of the ladder, he defeated Tom Miceli Jr., Evan Melson, Carson Fields, and Brian Dale. Proctor’s performance was equal to Miller’s, making them an excellent match-up for a final-round battle. However, this final would not feature any sort of battle as Proctor cut a red -.023 light to give away his chance at the win to Miller.
Jimmie Miller Wins 5.60

Crazy 8’s

Winner – Robert Parker / Runner-up – Spencer Claycomb
Ben Helland led the Crazy 8’s class on Saturday earning the #1 qualifier position with an 8.880. Points leader Tylan Beckelheimer showed up at VMP ready to defend his win and keep his points lead. However, Beckelheimer started the weekend running off the number to qualifying last with an 8.722 in the thirty-four bike field. In round one of eliminations, he was able to get slowed down to run an 8.814, but Carson Fields got a holeshot win on him to end his reign over the class.
DME Racing Real Street standout Spencer Claycomb and Floridian Robert Parker had the 8.88 index mastered on race day to meet in the final round. Parker cut the better light, .076 to Claycomb’s .116 and as the two raced to the finish line side-by-side, Claycomb couldn’t resist the urge to take the stripe first and broke out running an 8.850 while Parker ran an 8.885 to take the win.

MPS  Pro ET

Winner – Stephen Knight / Runner-up – James Farmer
 
One hundred and sixty-seven racers competed in MPS Pro ET on Sunday, making the day long with eight competition rounds. At the PFR Bike Fest, James Farmer took the win on Saturday, and Stephen Knight the win on Sunday. Going into this event James Farmer was leading the class with 20 points over Stephen Knight who held the #2 spot.
Stephen Knight Pro ET

Stephen Knight took the win in Pro ET equipped with our TiWinder Exhaust System.

So here we are a month later, and the top dogs of the class are chomping through the field to meet each other in the final. With Farmer not wanting to lose his points lead and Knight wanting his spot, it was the most significant sportsman final of the weekend. As both racers rolled into the beams, neither looked over at the other as they kept their full focus on the tree. Knight was dialed an 8.72 and Farmer a 9.12, so Farmer left first cutting a .030 light. And as he launched Knight’s arm dropped as he cut his best light of the day at .008 to catch up to Farmer by the eighth-mile. As the two approached the stripe side-by-side watching either other, neither rider was lifting. Farmer finally lifted the throttle right before the stripe, but it was too late; he broke out running a 9.112. Stephen Knight ran 8.713, sending him to the winner’s circle.
 

Brock’s Performance Street ET

Winner – Derrick Milbourne / Runner-up – John James
 
Brock’s Performance Street had a .00 Racing takeover as Derrick Milbourne was an unstoppable force no Sunday. Going into the MTC Engineering Bike Bash, Milbourne was tied for first with Montrell Johnson. Johnson lost in the fourth round, and Milbourne kept winning to keep gaining points over the class. With 124 competitors at the ready, Milbourne and John James would each take on half the field until they meet in the seventh round for a final battle. Milbourne dialed 8.90 and James an 8.87. With near-identical reaction times, the pair would take the race to the stripe. As they both played with the throttle at the end of the track trying to judge each’s performance, they would run identical 8.916 passes, meaning James was well off his dial and the win light lite up Milbourne’s lane.
