The sport of motorcycle drag racing is full of racers that just have to keep themselves moving by competing in multiple classes. Then we have those that run multiple classes and are very competitive in them, which causes all sorts of trouble for their competitors. One of Man Cup's very own competitive multi-class racers is...
Now Mr. Houdyshell is running 3rd in points in Wiseco Street Fighter but he absolutely has a strangle hold on the Vance & Hines V-Twin Class sitting firm at 398pts. His nearest competitor is trailing -186pts behind him at 212pts.
Now we know Vance W. Houdyshell has no intention of letting up because that is just not his style. Vance is a tough racer and gives it everything with every pass. An experience racer with a determination that his competitors are all to familiar with when they pull up to the beam next to him.
We decided speak with Vance since we are getting close to kicking off some serious drag racing action next weekend...
"2018 has been a great season for Vance & Hines V-twin. Horta started out strong and along like him there’s been 4 different winners so far this year. I’m surprised by the 186 points lead coming into the World Finals. I’m blessed with great bikes, Dave Weaver as my mechanic and most importantly my sponsor The Eddy Group, Inc. Eddy Group owns and manages commercial real estate in Florida.. We are excited for the finals and trying to put Daisy back in the winners circle for her 14th Birthday November 18th.
JT Norton brought to my surprise that I’m 3rd in Wiseco Street Fighter. I’m only 26 points down going into the last race!!! I’m super stoked going into SGMP!" - Vance W. Houdyshell
