Please visit our sponsors and let them know you appreciate them supporting our wonderful sport. 




































Welcome to Team Half Fast’s website!


We at Team Half Fast are Sportsman Bracket/Index drag racers riding a specially-modified-for-drag-racing 1993 Harley-Davidson Sportster motorcycle.  ET (elapsed time) bracket drag bike racing is a special and exciting way to race where speed doesn’t determine the winner – it’s how consistently you can ride the quarter mile.  If you would like to learn a little more about this type of drag racing, please click on “The Team” section to the left.


The pros run the ¼ mile in about 6 seconds at 220+ mph.  We run about half of that (“only” about 120 mph), which is why we’re “Half Fast”!

We finished in the AMRA for 2013:

#5 in PE Pro-Eliminator 10.90 Class

#5 in “E” (ET) Class

#14 in SE Street Eliminator 11.50 Class


Congratulations, Chip, on a stellar year!


And we’re off to a STELLAR start to 2014 after attending two races.  We were #10 in “E” and #20 in PE nationally in the AMRA after the first race.  After the 2nd – still #10 in “E”, and moved all the way up to #5 in PE (10.90).  Be sure to check out our latest newsletter for all the updates!


Our Photo Gallery and Event Updates has only been updated through our April 2014 event – the Spring Nationals at Bowling Green, Kentucky.  We WILL be updating it with our last event from 2013 soon.  We had a blast moving Half Fast at our last event – AMRA’s Nitro Nationals at The Rock in Rockingham, North Carolina at the end of May.  The newsletter should be written and posted soon ;).


Be sure to check out our tentative 2014 Season Racing Schedule.


Our last newsletter (from May in Rockingham) can be viewed here.  You can see the newsletter from the Srping Bowling Green here.  You can view our first press release for 2014 here, and our latest press release here.
