At the second race of the year, Tombo Racing’s Tim Howard rode his Tombo powered Hayabusa to first place in the highly competitive SuperComp class. The supercomp class is an 8.90 index class, so Tommy Bolton and Tim detuned the Hayabusa so that it would consistently run in 8.90. This same bike typically runs in the low 8’s. All the competitors in this highly competitive class run wheelie bars, yet Tombo’s ‘Busa can easily turn 8.90’s without a wheelie bar. It was a tight race down to the finals, with Tim coming up against Randy Hughes to determine the winner. Tim just edged out Randy with an 8.91 at 151 mph.
Thanks to all the Tombo Racing sponsors for their support.
