I took down the King of The Track to win my first Wally. I double entered into two classes when I learned that there would be a King of The Track Wally race. I entered in street bike and pro. I made it to the finals in motorcycle but my shifter malfunctioned and I lost. I also made the final in pro and beat a dragster. I had to race a super-pro dragsters first round, a sportsman 66 Chevy2 wagon secound round and a top eliminator dragster in the final. It was an unbelieveable night.

pardon me for asking,whats a Wally? wall trophy?
From NHRA.com
The Wally: Drag racing's most prestigious trophy

At just more than one-foot tall with a classy brass finish, he stands on a solid wooden platform and is the most sought after man in the world of NHRA Full Throttle drag racing.

Be warned: He is elusive. Only the very best can catch him.

Affectionately known as a “Wally” in honor of the late NHRA founder Wally Parks by the thousands of NHRA competitors who seek it, the trophy has taken on a life of its own, and remains one of the single biggest motivators for high-performance enthusiasts from the smallest one-car garage in Kennebunkport, Maine, to one of the sport’s most sophisticated centers of technology and engineering in Yorba Linda, Calif.

It is the ultimate quest for every drag racer, from the weekend warrior Super Street competitor to the 7,000-horsepower gladiators in Top Fuel. When they do earn one, they cling to it with great passion because they know there’s no guarantee they’ll ever win another one.

“It’s obviously an award all the drivers covet,” said five-time NHRA Top Fuel champion Tony Schumacher. “Not so much for what it is, as for what it represents. I’d like to grab a bunch of them before I’m done.”

Such is the goal of every driver. However, many have spent countless hours and thousands of dollars chasing the dream, only to be denied time and time again.

For many drivers the chase can become an obsession.

where there is a will, there is a way! go get you some!!!!
true that...... I surprized allot of people "including myself" winning the Wally. I had quite a cheering section by the end of the night. Quite a few people liked seeing a bike go as far as I did. Unforgettable night indeed.
