2018 Manufacturers Cup / Mancup

This is a motorcycle drag racing series that has brought me (and others) years of great memories and races. The 2017 November race was historical not only the Top Fuel broke world records but numerous other racers broke and even shattered they own personal records. It was a great way to end a great 2017 season. Below is their 2018 schedule please come out have fun and takes some memories home for yourself.

April 6-8 / South Georgia Motor Sports Park - Complete

June 1-3 / Rockingham Dragway

July 13-15 / Dragway 42 – New Track for 2018

September 14-16 / GALOT Motorsports Park (1/8 mile)

November 15-18 / South Georgia Motor Sports Park

April Mancup was a fun event but another race and pending weather for Saturday did impact the turnout and the count was pretty low.

The weather for Friday was awesome and testing pushed along until about 4pm. Shortly after Wade got some track prep done we moved into qualifying for Friday Evening. Pingel's Top Fuel Larry McBride would also drop a monster 1/4 mile number during testing after telling me in the staging lanes he was only planning to make an 1/8 mile. "Guess he must have changed his mind." lol.

Sat was a wash... and I do mean a wash because it rained ALL DAMN day. It finally ended around 9ish with one final rain shot coming though about 11pm.

Wade and his crew were on the track and then back at it early Sunday morning. The air got pretty chilly and a lot of us had to pull out some sweaters as the day moved on. As you can see below the winners below they locked in their victories some close and some not so close. I would like to make a special note for Dusty Brazel who managed to secure three runner up spots. Dusty was a running like crazy fool and maintained his cool the whole time.
