While a much awaited race between nitro Harley pacesetters Mark Drew and Damian Muscat did not eventuate in Perth on the weekend, fans may yet get to see Australia’s two quickest v-twins clash at the Westernationals.
Muscat took night one honours as well as setting low ET for Top Fuel Motorcycle of 6.50 for the weekend. Day two did not work to the same plan.
“It wasn’t to be our day with our engine shutting down after startup in the semi finals,” Muscat said. “We had a fuel delivery problem and the bike shut down on the start line.
“Congratulations to Benny Stevens for taking the win and Mark Drew in runner up (on day two) as well as resetting the MPH record.”
The Nitro Phoenix team now have a rush on to get home and sort out the bike before making it back in time for the Westernationals on March 4 and 5.
Meanwhile Drew and the Perth Harley Davidson/Territory Power Sports team found some long awaited speed with a new national record of 232.84mph backed up by a 236.36mph blast.
“We managed to reset our national speed record, also making it faster than the world IHRA record of 228mph.
“For the Westernationals in a month we will be focused on breaking our national ET record of 6.34 seconds and trying to be the first person in Australia to run a 6.2 second pass on a nitro Harley.”

1st Place at the Nationals…Congratulations..
first place in the Extreme Sports Park NATIONALS held September 10th in
Washington State. It was an exciting weekend of qualifiers on a tight course
and some crazy Speed Boat racing. Driver Gahr mentioned ” The very first
boat out on the course rolled upside down right at the finish line and were
under water for quite awhile. That was one of two boats that went under
water. It was very scary but safety crews got to them and everyone was okay
but that was just the start for a number of bad wrecks, that would happen
all day. It set an atmosphere that was very nerve racking and suspenseful
The TNT Livewire boat had issues with top end speed due to a Fan blade in
the water pump not performing well. Once that was fixed just before the last
race for the Nationals the Boat performed well and the NitroLube power made
the boat run just fantastic. Driver and Owner Paul Gahr Jr. drove an
extremely beautiful tactical race to capture the Title for 2016.
Congratulations to all the Team members.
