Jeremy Teasley beat team boss Coby Adams in an all-Adams Performance, all-Kawasaki ZX14
HTP Performance Real Street final at the Lee’s Performance Fall Bike Nationals, the final round of the 2009 Mickey Thompson MiRock Superbike Series. Fabulous weather, large fields, a huge crowd, and tight points battles made for a perfect finish to the season at Rockingham Dragway in the sand hills of North Carolina.
Jeremy Teasley took down Coby Adams during the final round of the MiRock Superbike Drag Racing Series.
Running a comparatively mild motor this time around in the Michelin Power One-equipped, Friction Unlimited bike known as “Digger,” Teasley used superb, consistent riding to make his way through the competitive field. Aboard Roger Starrette’s blue ’14, builder/tuner Adams was getting reacquainted quickly to riding a big bore bike with a big shot of nitrous and by the end of the weekend Adams was smooth as silk.
“The Adams camp had a great weekend,” said Teasley. “Coby and Garron (crew chief Garron Miller) figured out what was wrong with Digger, and that was a good thing to find out.” Starting in September at Atco Raceway, the bike had taken to leaning out and eating exhaust valves. The problem resurfaced at Norwalk, and Adams traced the cause to a bad fuel pump just before Rockingham.
“The first pass off the trailer at The Rock we ran an 8.00 with the clutch slipping, so I was happy with that,” continued Teasley. “I kept making smooth runs, doing the same thing, then before I knew it, Coby and I were in the finals! We couldn’t ask for anything better!” Adams put up a stout battle, but Teasley took the stripe for yet another win.
“Now I hope to have a good weekend in Valdosta,” finished Teasley, who will be fighting round for round with rival Keith Thompson for the BST Real Street championship at the AMA Dragbike National Finals at South Georgia Motorsports Park near Valdosta this weekend, November 13-15.
