This year I am not going to Deals Gap, or on any other trips...



The only place I am going this season is to ATCO Raceway, New Jersey on April 22-23, 2002...To have Rickey himself teach me the finer ways of DragRacing!!!



First I will be starting on the ZX6 then the ZX9, so that I can get my NHRA and PROSTAR SuperGas Licenses!!!



I am looking forward to being in his class and learning his ways!!! I cant wait...

I spoke with Ricky about his school last year, he will have some very interesting technics for those who attend. If you go he will let you go on your own then tell you what you did wrong and show you how to improve, he is a super nice guy you will enjoy yourself.

ZX, I hope to meet you at the class!!! Are you going on April 22nd & 23rd???



I had my 12 Dyno'd by Joe from MAXIMUM POWERSPORTS, Long Island, NY... They do great work!!! Maybe a little far for you to travel, but they are trustworthy...

The performance work should be finished the only problem is I keep on adding stuff and ordering everything possible. Paint, polishing ,chrome. etc.. And I will be giving [email protected] a call soon.

No gus no school scheduled for Indy as of yet.



No reason not to bring your own bike except, (If your bike breaks or the clutches go or something like that, it will cut into your time as you will then need to install clutches, or fix the problem, while everyone else is riding).

I got all fired up seeing April 15,16 dates for Rickey's school in Dallas on Foley's site, but I called Foley and he said that there isn't a drag bike school in Tx this year, nearest one is in Chicago.



Come on guys, we need about 8 wanna-be bike drag folk to get RG to bring his school to Texas; SAFE4NOW and I make 2... There must be 6 other Texans out there who wanna learn from the best!

Rickey Gadson DragRacing school was the best vacation I ever had!!! The money spent was WELL worth it!!!



Thanks again Rickey for all your expertise!!!



This is how it went... Day 1...It was raining, so we had class time...Talking about all the details of the reason why DragRace guys do what they do!!! Then we went to the DRAG STRIP, starting out on the ZX6...Rickey covered everything!!!



Day2...started on the ZX6, then to the ZX9... I was having a blast ripping down the strip on those bikes!!! The best part about the school was after each run, Rickey gave us 1 to 1 instruction!!! Telling us what we did and what we need to do!!! Then I ran my 12 and it was a handful...



I learned so much at the school!!! More than I thought!!!



Guys, just go to the school, you will say the same as I did!!!
