Gatewood Engineering And Race Support (GEARS) has learned from the AMA that it has ratified the Gatewood XLCR Bonneville Record that was set recently at the BUB Speed Trials. While the GEARS race team, “Hoosier Daddy Motorcycle Landspeed Racing”, is happy they are already looking ahead and planning for another trip to run at Bonneville in 2013.
The Gatewoods, Drew and Clayton, would like to acknowledge the “Hoosier Daddy Motorcycle Landspeed Racing” sponsors: Advance Auto, Baisley Hi-Performance, Barnett Clutches & Cables and Larry Coleman, Bell Helmets, Dawn Gatewood, Drag Specialties and Jeff Meyers, Jim Fischer, Hi-Speed Motorcycle, Jim Leineweber, K&N Filters and Dennis Mahan, Michigan City Harley-Davidson and Warner Riley.
The support of their loyal fans: Jim McMahon – Heads 1st, Jim Thorstad, Lyda Gatewood, Dave Cornett, Quitin Pioche, Gases L.L.C., Evans Hotrods, Patty Campbell. And an emergency last minute, on the spot, speedy race mechanic crew made up of: Dan Kinsey, Mike Witt, Earl Reichmann, Tom Anderson, George Smith, Jim Fischer, and numerous others.
On Saturday October 20th, they gave visitors to Michigan City Harley-Davidson (where Clayton Gatewood works) a thrill when they took the “Hoosier Daddy Motorcycle Landspeed Racing” record setting XLCR to the shop for their annual Biketoberfest. It was a fun day as most of the people there had never even seen or heard of an XLCR, nor been in the presence of a bike that had run and set a record at the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats. Way cool!
