After a week of tremendous mechanical challenges Team TOP1 Oil & ACK ATTACK overcame the gremlins and have once again claimed the title of the "world's fastest motorcycle"* It was late Saturday afternoon, September 25, 2010 at the Bonneville Salt Flats when veteran pilot Rocky Robinson strapped into the Top 1 Ack Attack streamliner and proceeded down the 11 mile (17.6 KM) course on his way to make history. By the end of the day, Mike, Rocky and the crew realized their dream had become a reality as they became the "world's fastest motorcyclist*, averaging 376.156 MPH / 601.849KPH over two successive runs.
*The official world record for the Top 1 Ack Attack is now pending FIM review and approval."
BREAKING NEWS :September 24th 2009
The BUB Seven Streamliner is now the fastest motorcycle on the planet!
Chris Carr set a new FIM world record & AMA national record at
367.382 mph through the mile with an exit speed of 372.534 mph at the
Cook Private Meet at the Bonneville Salt Flats Utah.
On Sunday morning, August 30th
2009 racing officially started at the BUB meet.
The first run of the meet was a memorial pass honoring the late Cliff Gullett.
The hauler, filled with family and friends was given permission to run down the track.
The "TEAM" was concerned that a chunk of salt may fall off of the hauler or truck so they CHOSE to
run down the side of the track for the safety of all the riders.
Actions will always speak louder than words.
My Mom, Dad and I all have great memories of Cliff from our time on the salt and our thoughts and prayers
still go out to his Family and Friends.
