Motorcycle drag racer Chip Ellis has competed and won at all levels of the sport and on top of a multitude of different motorcycles. Most of you know his name from NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle competition, but he didn’t just fall out of the sky onto an NHRA bike. Nope, he worked his way there, even going faster than any Pro Stock bike will go for the forseeable future.
In this video you’ll see Ellis run 6.87 seconds which is insane in itself. The hook is that he’s riding a Funny Bike class machine with is a highly modified drag race motorcycle, obviously. This baby launches off, gets up on the tire and the wheelie bar and never touches terra firma until he crossed the stripe. Don’t believe us? Look for the puff of smoke. That’s the front tire touching down!
We’re not sure why the announcer is (a) Australian and (b) devoid of any excitement at watching this happen. We’d have been going absolutely nutso!
