Summit ET finals at Fontana
Kahea Woods - 1995 SUZUKI GSXR 1100
So it been a roller coaster week going in to the Summit ET finals at Fontana. We lost the patriarch John "Woody" Woods for our Torco Oil, Mickey Thompson Tire backed GSXR 1100. Our leader, friend and dad lost his fight to cancer the week before the race.

One does not know how to go on needless to say go out and race, but became very clear. One of the last things my dad said to me was "concentrate and go out and race". So off to Fontana we went. It was awesome seeing our racing family. It was good for the soul.

On Thursday we ran the quickest pass our Torco Suzuki ever went. 8.47 @ 158 mph in the standing 1/4 mile but in the proses we blistered a tire. Having to change a rear slick and starting eliminations on a green tire did not look good. Our confidence and consistently was not very high going in to the first round. I have to say that my riding was not the best that weekend. We ended up going 6 of the toughest rounds and bring home the win with a average et of 8.54 @ 153 mph. I would like to thank all the gang at Torco USA for there continued support.

Winning this race in honor of my dad is something I won't soon forget. Until we see each other again pop's that one is for you.

About:
Kahea Woods
2014 was a good year for the TORCO sponsored GSXR. The team had its ups and downs and finished 3rd in the LVMS Summit point’s series with 2 wins and 4 runner ups.

We feel very confident going in to 2015, as the bike ran very well at the last NHRA LODRS race in November. We made it to the ¼ finals, losing by just 0.0016 of a second.

We have been using TORCO since I can remember. My Dad and Crew Chief “Woody Woods” used it in their A/F Dragster back in the 60’s, Super Stocker in the 70’s, Sprint Cars in the 80’s, and I have been using it since I started racing Drag Bikes. We can’t thank the crew at TORCO USA enough for all of their support!!!

TORCO Racing Oils has been an awesome supporter of our team for the last 14+ years.
