Dragbike Live film crews were filming the MIRock Superbike Series Fall Nationals held on October 1st-2nd 2011 at Maryland International Raceway in Budds Creek Marylan and captured the exclusive historic video of Ryan Schnitz breaking the six second barrier.
Schnitz is the rider for HTP Performance of Richmond Virginia and piloted the teams Nitrous Oxide assisted Suzuki GSXR1300 Hayabusa street bike when he made history clocking a 6.907 ET at 203.6 MPH in the 1/4 mile!
Schnitz is the first person ever to run the 1/4 mile on a Pro Street legal motorcycle in less than 6 seconds! This is the quickest pass ever made on a street bike and the first street legal Pro Street motorcycle and a Nitrous Oxide injected bike at that to break the 6 second barrier. History was made and witnessed!
