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.
