2016 was another dramatically successful year for motorcycle drag racing powerhouse DME Racing, as the Winston-Salem, North Carolina-based team collected two more Pro Street championships and their first two Real Street championships.
The 2016 race season was an outstanding rookie season for Pro Street racer Chris Connelly Jr. of Pro Stock Inc. / Team DME. This new rider took things seriously and the quick study progressed nicely throughout the year.
Team DME Racing set out two weeks ago for grueling back to back races. The first stop would be in Memphis, TN for the Man Cup event. Terence Angela and Joey Gladstone would be leading the charge in Memphis as Jason Dunigan would wait to join the crew the following weekend in Maryland.
The DME Racing team made the short drive to Rockingham Dragway for the 29th Annual DME Racing Man Cup Nationals this past weekend. As the title sponsor for the event they were once again looking for a solid showing, especially considering the family and friends who would be in attendance.
Winston-Salem, North Carolina-based DME Racing LOVES Maryland International Raceway in April. The team, with rider Joey Gladstone on the Vance&Hines-sponsored, turbocharged Suzuki Hayabusa known as “Black Betty,” ran stunning new records of 6.720 and 221 mph at MDIR in April of last year.
