Lieske Qualifies #1 in SuperGas at Sturgis Nationals

Heating the rear tire.

Congratulations to Joe Lieske, who had a pretty good outing last week at the 2008 AHDRA Sturgis Nationals. Riding his back up bike, a V-Rod Destroyer, he was the number one qualifier in the SuperGas class. SuperGas is a class with a 6.40 index for 1/8 mile tracks. Joe qualified right on the money, running a 6.40. It doesn't get any closer than that.

Joe made it to the semi-finals where he was defeated by only .002 of a second. Pretty close!

Here is Joe during opening ceremonies being introduced with the #1 qualifiers in the other classes. Joe is the one in the orange leathers.

Besides Lee's Speed Shop(that's me), Joe is sponsered by PMFR, Faribault Harley Davidson, and American Thunder.
