Season Wrap up December 2001:
The 2001 season was off to a great start for our customers. In July Scott Sawyer and Matt
Reagan finishing 1st & 2nd in the Multi class at the Central's in Oklahoma City. Paul Esworthy and Adam Raber
did the same at the Eastern's at Peru,Indiana. Paul won the Indiana and Illinois State races. Scott has won the
Texas State championship as well.
On top of that Rick King and Chad Souders took 1st & 2nd in the "A" class at the Easterns. Rick's
F4 & Chad's F3 both used our Step-Header exhaust system and alcohol modified stock carbs. Also adding up several
wins are FTZ "A" class customers such as Ryan Leek in Indiana, as well as many others.
Sawyer and Raber finished 1-2 at the NMMA Nationals in Garden City, Kansas. With Sawyer and Esworthy winning the
qualifying features earlier in the week.
Other 600 Multi or Outlaw racers getting big wins were Travis Senter at both the Granite city World of Outlaws
show and the Logansport Outlaw Nationals. Donnie Bracket won the big race at Pittsfield, Il. Ryan Bunton at Jacksonville
won the track championship, and defending champs Brad Gentry and Bill Duncan finished up behind new FTZ customers
Rusty Pipes and Scooter Sanders in their respective series down south. Sammy Swindell's son Kevin is getting to
be smooth & quite fast with his new FTZ 600 multi adding up several top finishes. Most of these guys run bigger
tracks up to 3/8 mile.
In the northeast Randy West, Blane Heimbach, Johnny Lieto and others have done very well at the various tracks.
They run the FTZ Pennsylvania legal or "Linda's" motor combinations.
Sorry, I know I have left many others out, but thanks to all involved and keep up the good work!!
