Search for America's FASTEST Streetbike, Co-Sponsored by Brock's Performance
Wednesday, May 22, 2013

 

 

It's time to put up or shut up! If you think you have the fastest streetbike, here's your chance to compete for the title. On September 21-22, 2013, Super Streetbike and Sport Rider magazines will host the end-all competition that pits the baddest and fastest streetbikes in the country in wheel-to-wheel competition for national bragging rights. To answer the call is easy. Simply email pics of your bike with a list of modifications to: SSBfastest@sorc.com

 

"Brock's Performance is very excited to be the co-sponsor for 'The Search for America's Fastest Bike' competition. When I first heard about the event, my interest was immediately spiked. With a rich history of products that provide world class performance, I knew it would be a perfect fit for our company," said Brock Davidson.

 

Brock added, "The winner of the event will score some great prizes and cash, but most importantly, they will be able to legitimately hold the bragging rights to owning Americas fastest streetbike, which is pretty badass."

 

The search is open to any street-legal motorcycle available for sale in the U.S. entries can be emailed to SSBfastest@sorc.com. Selections will be made by the editors of Super Streetbike and Sport Rider magazines, and the 10 finalists will be invited to the showdown held at the Continental/General Tire Proving Grounds in Uvalde, TX where the bikes will be run through five events to determine the winner.

 

The Event

 

  • Scoring is based on multiple categories. The total points from all categories will decide the overall winner. Winners will also be recognized in the following categories:

    • 15-mile street course
    • 1/4 mile dragstrip
    • Dyno shootout
    • Top speed challenge
    • Roadrace course

  • Pro riders will ride finalist bikes in order to equalize the field.
  • The 15-mile simulated street course on the facility will test each bike’s “streetability”. Dead starts, stops, idling, and various obstacles will help distinguish just how much of a streetbike each contestant is. Points will be deducted for not meeting certain standards.
  • Dyno shootout is self-explanatory—the most horsepower wins. However, there will be bonus points awarded for meeting certain power marks.
  • The quarter-mile drag challenge is also easy to deduce, the quickest bike gets the lion’s share of the points.
  • The top speed challenge will test each bike’s ability to combine horsepower with wind-cheating aerodynamics. Bonus points will be awarded for meeting specified mph goals.
  • The roadrace course will be ultimate test of each bike’s performance capabilities. Thus, major points will be awarded for being quickest on this course.

 

Not only will there be big cash prizes and other swag awarded to the contestants, but the winner will receive a free set of awesome BST carbon fiber wheels from event sponsor, Brock’s Performance. The event will feature other activities for the finalists besides the Search For America’s Fastest Bike contest, and will be covered in all forms of media (print, web, and social) as well as be the subject of a feature video on Motor Trend’s “On Two Wheels” YouTube channel.
