Grothus Dragbikes would like to congratulate Brad Mummert and Richard Gadson on their record setting Pro Street Nitrous "Old Skool" Suzuki GS performances this past weekend at the IDBL (International Drag Bike League) race in Maryland!
Mummert's "Old Skool" bike has the GDB billet throttle set/switch bracket, GDB quick access GS clutch cover and PMFR by GDB countershaft sprocket helping achieve the monumental 6.733 elapsed time record! The 6.733 lap rocketed the duo to #5 on the G.O.A.T list!
Grothus Dragbikes will be making its first appearance to the IDBL this July and will have the same components helping make this record setting performance available on the Manufacturer's Midway.&......
With an incredibly busy off-season just behind them, Grothus Dragbikes (GDB) entered the first race of the Manufacturer’s Cup tour at South Georgia Motorsports Park with 3 GDB team bikes and the Canadian-based Gosselin Motorsports, Grothus Dragbikes built, pro-open dragbike ready for a 3-day race weekend.
Youngest GDB team rider, Brody Grothus, entered the weekend aboard the freshly re-assembled “Big Brother” Race Visions Kawasaki. After shaking down the new combination, Brody qualified well in the 43 bike Super Comp field and made it down to 12 bikes on race day before being eliminated. The rookie rider also went multiple rounds in Pro-ET throughout the weekend gaining valuable seat time.
Now is the chance for you to purchase the newest GDB product available - the Legacy Series 18" Front Wheel:
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 .........
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 .........
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.........
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 & ......
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 .........
The third stop in the 2016 season for the Grothus Dragbikes (GDB) team was at Memphis International Raceway for the third event & midway point of the all bike Manufacturers Cup Series. There was extra hype coming into this event as GDB rider Brunson and his wife Madeline just welcomed their newborn son, Graham Joseph Grothus, into the world one week prior (GDB Team Owner's Ed & Judy's first grandchild). To add to the excitement, GDB team member 'Showboat' Shane Eperjesi would be aboard a brand new 2016 GDB Suzuki pro-mod. Brunson arrived in the wee hours of the rainy Saturday morning as Ed, Brad Grothus & 'Showboat' himself were putting the finishing touches on the new pro-mod to get it race ready.
After leaving the 2016 Spring Manufacturers Cup with a pair of pro-modified semi-finals losses and respectively sitting 3rd & 4th place in points, the Grothus Dragbikes (GDB) team was hungry to get back to the track. GDB was also eager to get to the track to debut their new 13 inch rear wheel as well as for the much anticipated return of the 1988 Race Visions Kawasaki.The storied, national championship winning Kawasaki would not return to Top Gas or Pro ET competition, but to the Grothus Dragbikes sponsored Ultra 4.60 index class.
GDB rolled into the famed Rockingham Dragway early Friday afternoon and quickly setup on Manufacturers midway in preparation for a few test laps on the two pro-mods, both equipped with .........
