CyclePalooza Day One: Notes, Quotes and Sunday Preview

Saturday, January 16, 2010


Despite cloudy conditions the first day of CyclePalooza brought more than 100 motorcycles to Palm Beach International Raceway.


Florida favorite Mike Lehman, owner of Palm Beach Harley Davidson, is on hand for the event with his Top Fuel bike.
One of Lehman's runs clocked in at 6.37 ET (elapsed time) at 204.42 mph. Joey Sternotti of Blackwood, New Jersey ran an impressive 6.230 ET at nearly 230 mph. There are 11 Top Fuel bikes on hand for the event.

“We’ve got a lot left (for the competition),” Mike Lehman said. “The track is just absolutely perfect. I’ve been all over the country and we truly have one of the best facilities in the country right here at Palm Beach International Raceway.”

Gates open at 10 a.m. on Sunday and the bike show runs from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Live bands are scheduled to begin at noon with a bikini contest at 2:30 p.m. Classes scheduled to battle it out on the strip are: Top Fuel, Top Gas, Super Comp, V-Twin Street Bike, Pro Pike, Street Bike, V-Rods, Harley Davidson and Scooter.

“The first day of CyclePalooza was a success,” said Jason Rittenberry, President and CEO of PBIR. “We had some clouds in the sky this afternoon but the weather is looking better for tomorrow and it will definitely be a good show. I’m looking forward to seeing the bikes battle it out on our very fast drag strip.”
