Mother Nature really threw racers and spectators a curve at the Bub Motorcycle Speed Trials this year with a massive rain storm that canceled many passes on Sunday and closed the track on Monday. Once the rains cleared and racing appeared to get back on track, huge cross winds plagued the streamline classes, with machines that make it a point not to run with winds of 14 mph or higher. But Jody Perewitz came to race, and with winds bordering on unacceptable the beautiful J’WITZ machine rolled off the start line on the slippery moist salt. Making constant body adjustments to counter wind pressure from the side, Jody made several flawless passes, one at a blistering 196.9 mph, while bumping her previous FIM World Record to 189 mph. So once again she has laid down the gauntlet and made it perfectly clear that will be a major contender for years to come.
Follow the fastest woman on an American V-Twin, Jody Perewitz & Team J'Witz as she attempts to set more land speed records! Jody and her Team J'Witz have set multiple records. She currently holds 2 land speed records with Loring Timing Association and 1 with AMA / Bub speed trials at Bonneville. In Bonneville Jody made a pass at 203.111mph making her the first woman to go over 200 on an American V-Twin.
Dave Perewitz is a custom bike building legend. Daughter Jody has become just as well known and respected in the M/C community and is only the 3rd woman to break the 200 mph at Bonneville Salt Flats. As you’ve probably seen, her one-of-a-kind machine not only looks like a piece of art but exemplifies the highest standards of craftmanship, performance and safety.
