Dream Chaser Racin’ Headed to Norwalk Hungry

By June 5, 2012General Posts

Dream Chaser Racin’  Janette, Freddie Robbins, and the entire Ray Price Race Team worked fast and furious trying to locate the gremlin in her bike and get in a qualifying run in on Saturday but was unsuccessful.  

"It's amazing how everyone is family at the race track and pitched in to help, hoping I would get into the race!" said Janette "I appreciated all the support."  They didn't stop on Sunday either, hoping that I could run in the outlaw class (meant for non-qualifiers and 1st round losers) and be ready for Norwalk.  

"It was frustrating not to be able to identify the issue" said Thornley,     "I know this happens in racing but I feltlike I was really getting into a groove. I'm not discouraged though, I'm ready for Norwalk and anxious to get back into the game now that the Ray Price team took the bike back to the shop and found a couple problems including a bent valve that contributed to the mechanical failure.

Thornley will be back on track with AHDRA's Ohio Bike Week Nationals Presented by The Northern Ohio Harley-Davidson Dealers at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park Norwalk, OH, June 9 and 10th. 

 Janette Thornley is owner and operator of a nitro burning, carbureted, 121 cid Pro Dragster and Dream Chaser Racin’.
