DYNO-POWER AHDRA RACE TEAM

Any successful racing team is just that, a TEAM!

Everyone at the shop helped build the bike and helps with pre-race preparation tasks. This bike ran the entire first year, nearly 100 passes without failure.

Engine and clutch tuning decisions must be made at the track. Decisions must also be made regarding engine design and changes at the shop between races.  This rookie team has had unprecedented success in 2005 in the AHDRA National Championship.

Mark Venia rides the bike and assists the crew chiefs in everything that they do. There is a lot happening at a race and everyone has to pitch in and help.

Winner's Circle for the Dyno-Power Racing Team

  After the first 2 races of the 2009 AHDRA National Drag Racing Championships, the Dyno-Power Drag Racing Team is leading the points chase.  Dyno-Power qualified #1 and won the first 2 races at St. Louis and Atlanta to secure a 22 point lead.  Ray Deselms and Paul Peer, both technicians at Dyno-Power, are the new tech crew that keeps the bike in top condition between rounds and races.  They are new to racing but everything runs so smooth at the track you would think they have been doing this for 10 years.  Next race is during Ohio Bike Week June 6th & 7th at Norwalk Dragway.
