Ethan Barkley was on hand at the IHRA Rocky Mountain
Nitro Jam at Castrol Raceway presented by Parts Canada. It was
an amazing event with thousands of spectators on hand, amazing
weather and a really well prepared racing surface. Ethan arrived
only a few days after leaving the U.K. Even though he was a little
jet lagged, that didn't stop him from coming out of the gate strong.
The first pass right off the trailer was a solid 7.7 at 185+ mph
and the times and speed just kept improving as the weekend wore
By the end of the event Ethan had one of his quickest passes on
Canadian soil with a 7.42 second elapsed time. If that wasn't enough
he set a new personal best speed in the 1/4 mile of 197.10 MPH!
The 200MPH barrier is right around the corner...
