GDB Rider Brunson Grothus Caps 2017 Season with ManCup Pro Mod Title

November 26, 2017 @ 10:30 AM

If you were to ask GDB multi-class rider, Brunson Grothus, if backing up a title is harder than getting the first one, he would most likely say yes. Since Brunson won his first Mancup Pro Comp and Pro ET titles back in 2013 at Bradenton Motorsports Park, he had been unable to put his name back on any national championship trophy, that was until a week ago.

The Manufacturers' Cup World Finals was really an exceptional event for the Pro-Mod bikes, and the performances seen all the way from first round of qualifying to the final round of competition was nothing short of mind boggling. Almost all of today's heavy hitters were in attendance other than the Canadian duo of Terry Schweigert and Burke Forester; all of the Mancup regulars ...

After an almost three-year absence from the sport of drag racing, the American Drag Racing League (ADRL) made its return and hosted one race in preparation of a full eight race series in 2017. On November 4th, the ADRL rolled into Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, IL and hosted none other than Dragstock XI. After winning the last ADRL Pro Extreme Motorcycle (PXM) race in the 2013 season in Houston, TX, Brunson and the rest of the Grothus Dragbikes crew were excited to make their return to the ADRL.

In the chilly November conditions with a track temp near the 70 degree mark, GDB rolled their PXM out of the trailer and put their A to B tune-up in it and made a silky smooth 4.12 lap at 172 mph to go to the top of the field ahead of the .........

Manufacturer's Cup IV - North Carolina

September 19, 2016 @ 11:00 AM

One week after winning back-to-back Professional Drag Racing Association events, GDB rider Brunson Grothus entered the fourth of five Manufacturer’s Cup events at “The Rock” in Rockingham, NC in a tight points battle with veteran pro-modified racers Paul Gast and Travis Davis. Also looking to stay in the pro-mod points mix and improve upon his current fourth place position was GDB rider “Showboat” Shane Eperjesi aboard his barely broke in 2016 Grothus Dragbikes chassis.

The GDB team arrived early Friday on a mission to test and get Showboat some more on track data. And that they did, Showboat clicked off two nice laps going from A to B in the 90 plus degree heat. Early Saturday afternoon Brunson led .........

September 12, 2016 @ 9:30 AM

After a one-month break from the track where GDB had a career event weekend at the Professional Drag Racing Association (PDRA) Memphis drags, where they were the number one qualifier, set low elapsed time of the event with a 4.05 at 175 mph, and took out the PDRA points leader Chris Jones in the final, GDB loaded up and headed east for the biggest PDRA event of the year - Dragstock XIII at the brand new Galot Motorsports Park in Benson, NC. The GDB crew was excited to arrive at the world class eighth mile facility and get to work; however, they were delayed for several hours near Dayton, OH when they unfortunately had a flat tire during the all-night 1,000 mile trek. After multiple phone calls and getting the spare tire mounted on the rim.........

GDB Rocks & Rolls With Career Weekend At PDRA Memphis

August 15, 2016 @ 11:00 AM

After taking a two-year break from the Professional Drag Racing Association (PDRA), Grothus Dragbikes (GDB) made the trip to Memphis International Raceway (MIR) to throw their hat in the PDRA ring. But before GDB could get teched in and get the bikes ready for qualifying session #1, they had to cut their own lock off one side of the rear lift gate of the trailer as the key broke off in the lock...Once the lock was off the trailer, it was time for business. 

The first GDB rider to take a shot at the smooth MIR surface was Brunson Grothus aboard the Indocil Art painted pro-extreme motorcycle (PXM). Brunson went right to the #1 spot with an arrow straight 4.103 at 173.56 mph. A couple pairs later, the second GDB bike with tuner & ......

NHDRO Summer Celebration

August 8, 2016 @ 12:30 PM

Big ET racing payouts & new pro-mod motor data acquisition attracted Grothus Dragbikes (GDB) to the No Hatin Drag Racing Organization's (NHDRO) Summer Celebration event at the famous Lucas Oil Raceway located just outside Indianapolis, IN. GDB owner, Ed Grothus, caught wind of the $5k to win Pro ET payout a few weeks prior to the event and immediately jumped at the chance to be an associate sponsor for the large sportsman payout. Ed himself knew what kind of excitement such an event draws as he won a $5k to win Pro ET event 20 plus years earlier at the 1995 Prostar World Finals in Gainsville, FL. In addition to the large Pro ET payout, it was time for Brody Grothus to start "cutting his teeth" on GDB's ZX14 streebike .........
