5th annual FuelTech Superbike Showdown

Who’s your Daddy? XDA Racers win on Father’s Day Weekend
Racers and fans expect record-breaking performances when they attend an XDA event. And the 5th annual Fuel Tech Superbike Showdown at Maryland International Raceway delivered just that and more on Father’s day weekend.
Over 560 entries were on hand to witness history on the world-famous quarter-mile of MIR. The Pro classes get top billing for bringing incredible performances, but the sportsman racers kept the show rolling with the highest level of competitive racing.
The 1 Stop Speed 5.60 class was led by Jeff Stahl who qualified #1 with a 5.601 over the thirty-five bike field of eighth-mile racers. Stahl would be defeated in round two by Duane Jackson, who would go on to the final round. Jackson, a winner circle veteran, faced the rookie Rico Brown in the final. Brown had just graduated high school on Friday and had his entire family in attendance for this race.
Specifically designed for use without wheelie bars, Brock’s 4-into-2-into-1 sidewinder (the industry’s first) provides the most average power and torque with a megaphone-induced peak power punch. Unique configuration allows maximum performance from stock displacement to big cc engines. Years of knowledge, acquired from Brock himself professionally drag racing street bikes, are merged into a purpose-built side exit system.
Brown ended the 2021 season with a win in this class, and he was determined to do it again for his family. Brown got the jump on the tree over Jackson, and both competitors took the stripe while breaking out in the process. Jackson’s break out was worse with a 5.559 to Rico Brown’s winning 5.578. It was a great gift on Father’s day for Boo Brown who was standing on the starting line watching his son take the win.
In the Friday night Hard Times Parts & Service Gambler’s Race Ben Knight and Tom Dunham dominated for five rounds of competition before they went to battle against each other. Knight dialed an 8.93 and Dunham an 8.83. Dunham had a slight starting line advantage with a .022 light to Knights .058. As both racers approached the finish line, Knight lifted while Dunham stayed in the throttle breaking out with an 8.824, giving the win to Ben Knight.
When nothing but the best will do, Brock’s Performance titanium full exhaust systems provide world-class craftsmanship, fit, and finish. Offering the most in terms of power gains, build quality, and weight savings. All backed by a long history of race proven performance and record setting results. From the patented design of the TiWinder elliptical sidewinder to the exquisite CT series, these premier exhaust systems are among the best in the world.
