In what continues to be the most interesting class in the Mickey Thompson Tires MIRock Superbike Series, reigning DME Real Street motorcycle champion Jeremy Teasley got the record but current points leader Johnny Dobrin got the win Sunday in the ninth annual FBR Shop Nationals at Rockingham Dragway.

Although Teasley was the No. 1 qualifier astride his ZX14 Kawasaki and even though he lowered the national record for the class to an astounding 7.764 seconds in a first round in which he was unopposed,the turbo Suzuki of Dobrin that stepped up thereafter and the Sarasota, Fla., pro laid down a 7.765 in the final to win for the fifth straight time.

Not that Teasley made it easy. In fact, the Columbus, Ohio, rider, who won the July Schnitz Summer Sizzler at The Rock, forged a big lead at the start with an .055 reaction time only to have the turbo run him down.Nevertheless, the margin at the finish line was closer than the performance numbers might suggest – just .018 of a second.

Two other reigning MIRock champions also won on Sunday – Ronald Procopio (pictured 3rd right) of Wake Forest in Mickey Thompson Pro Modified and Rodney Williford of Rougemont (pictured 2nd right) in Orient Express Pro Street.

It was the third season victory for both, enabling Procopio to extend his lead and Williford to close the gap on points leader Joey Gladstone of Townsend, Del., whom he defeated in the Pro Street final.

Stephen Moye of Bowie, Md., won in House of Speed Crazy 8s division, Matt Davies of Petersburg, Va., claimed the FBR Shop 5.60 Index title and Barry Pryer Sr. of Chesapeake, Va., prevailed in the Trac King Top Sportsman class.

Andy Baumbach of Fairfax Station, Va.,(pictured bottom right) and Chris Clontz of Mechanicsville, Md., were the Saturday and Sunday winners in the Nitrous Express Pro ET class; Matt Davies of Petersburg, Va., and Boo Brown of Potomac Falls, Va., in Brock’s Performance Street ET.
