The 2012 Throttle Nation Top Speed Challenge is now complete and this was the most exciting and biggest race ever for us. The ECTA event was a complete sellout at the new Wilmington Ohio facility and after making our first trip there we can see why. Not only is the track one of the best land speed courses in the country, the weather for the event was spectacular. Several of the classes saw the leader board change over and over as competitors battled for the win during the two day event. This year’s event was sponsored by Brock’s Performance, Motul, VP Racing, Lee’s Performance, CTek, and McLean Racing. Below are the class winners and their winning speed.
