NHDRO World Finals and Pro Street Shootout
at Indianapolis

Big Championships, Big Money

Spotless weather and an incredibly tight Lucas Oil Raceway paved the way for record setting runs, big money payouts and well-earned championships at NHDRO’s World Finals in Indianapolis on September 23-25.

Michigan racer Mark Paquette (shown) already had the McIntosh Machine & Fabrication Pro Street championship in the bag before a wheel ever turned this past weekend. After skipping the Huntsville opener, Paquette won every single round in a dominant performance on his McIntosh/MPR Suzuki Hayabusa.

Paquette qualified number one with a record-setting 6.75, then sweetened his season by winning $5000 in Saturday’s Big Money Pro Street Shootout. Twenty-eight of the world’s quickest streetbikes showed up for the Shootout, with Paquette beating three-time MIRock champion Rodney Williford—riding John Drake/No Fear Racing’s “The Truth”—in the final of the biggest Pro Street race so far this year.

The final of Sunday’s points-paying eliminations was deja vu all over again as Paquette once again beat Williford with a 6.807 at 215.79 mph to Rodney’s 6.97.  Both riders raced through an incredibly strong field to get there, as all eight bikes in round two ran 6 second passes at over 200 mph.
