KEN COOK'S T140

Here's another shot of Ken Cook's T140...


Some info from Ken:
Here it is sitting still. I built this from scratch. The motor was built by motoparts inc. and is radical. We race on a nice 3/8 track and go out of town to a couple of big 5/8 tracks. Here is a link to our local clubs site:

BONNEVILLE PERFORMANCE MINNESOTA MILE RACE REPORT


From Bill Gately:
"We got our set up dead on in the first practice session ranking 6th. Our overall was 11th and placed us on the front row with Wiles, Coolbeth and Carr. Carr got the hole shot with Wiles taking it out of turn 2 and Shawn in second. Shawn ran third in a very tight battle with Jeremy Higgins on the KTM right to the finish with Higgins besting him by 1 millisecond. We earned a second row start in the final and Shawn raced the through 6 positions to earn a 9th chasing down and passing the Ducati 2 laps before Kopp lost his chain."

BAER FINISHES 9TH AT MINNESOTA MILE


Continuing their breakthrough season, the Bonneville Performance team picked up their best GNC finish to date with a 9th place run at the Minnesota Mile. Shawn Baer finished 4th in the heat to advance directly to the main where he ran in the top 10 throughout. We'll have the BP race report and more photos of the action later this week.

OH SO CLOSE AT SPRINGFIELD!


Shawn Baer missed the main at Springfield by a blink of the eye...actually much closer than that. Shawn missed the main by about a tenth of the time it takes to blink an eye - he was 40 milliseconds behind 3rd place Robert Pearson (and only 60 milliseconds behind winner Shaun Russell). In fact the top 5 in Semi 1 at the "World's Fastest Mile" were separated buy just 94 milliseconds...or just under a tenth of a second. 6th place Cory Texter lagged another tenth behind. WOW! All in all it was classic Springfield Mile racing all day with packs of riders drafting to the line. We'll have info from the Bonneville Performance team up later this week.

STU'S SHOTS R US PHOTOS

Received an email from Mike Stuhler the other day with some photos of the Bonneville Performance team at Indianapolis. He also pointed me to a cool article on his Stu's Shots R Us blog that mentioned Shawn Baer winning the semi at Indy and included the photo below of Shawn signing autographs in the pits. You can see the article here. Check out the rest of Mike's blog for more awesome photos and racing articles.




Good luck to Shawn and the Gately Brothers this Sunday at the Springfield Mile.
