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

November 26, 2017 @ 11:30 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 .........
