GLENDORA, Calif. (July 3, 2012) – NHRA officials announced today the formation of a Pro Stock Motorcycle Technical Advisory Council to provide input on rules and other technical matters. The Pro Stock Motorcycle Advisory Council will be chaired by Glen Gray, vice president, technical operations, NHRA.
“The Nitro Technical Advisory Council has provided great insight and feedback in a short period of time, so we believe the formation of a similar group of the best minds in the Pro Stock Motorcycle category can assist NHRA in both the short- and long-term,” said Gray. “We intend to have this group help NHRA in rule making and technical matters that are in the best of interest of the entire sport.”
The Pro Stock Motorcycle Technical Advisory members represent a cross-section of participants running all current makes and models on the track. The members are: Karen Stoffer, rider of the GEICO Powersports Suzuki; Byron Hines, team owner of Vance & Hines Motorsports; George Bryce, owner and crew chief of the Sovereign/Star Racing Buell; Gerald Savoie, rider and team owner of the White Alligator Racing Suzuki; and Hector Arana, Sr., rider and crew chief of the Lucas Oil Buell.
The first meeting of the Pro Stock Motorcycle Technical Advisory Council was held last weekend at the 15th annual O’Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 NHRA Nationals presented by Super Start Batteries at Route 66 Raceway in Chicago.
