NHRA.com said:The long-awaited Team Muzzy Trim-Tex Kawasaki will make its NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle debut this weekend at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals at Bandimere Speedway in Denver. Former AMA Prostar Series multi-time champion Ryan Schnitz will be aboard the all-new Kawasaki ZX-14.
“We are happy to finally have the bike out on the track,” said team manager Rob Muzzy. “I don't have any expectations this round. This is more of a shakedown test for us.
“Since there is a serious and extensive tech on the bike at the first round of racing, we decided to get it all done here and see how we can move forward. The bike is done, but I think that getting out on the track will help us better prepare for the next round in Sonoma.”
Schnitz is a four-time NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series national event winner, including a 2005 title in Denver.
As a brand, Kawasaki scored 15 NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle victories with the late great Dave Schultz in the late 1980s and early 1990s, including U.S. Nationals titles in 1987, 1988, and 1990. Kawasaki's last national event win was in Brainerd, Minn., in 2002 with Geno Scali.
So far they haven't made a full qualifying pass, 1st round-underweight; 2nd round left before the tree.
I sure hope Ryan and the guys at Muzzys will get it straightened out and qualify.
