FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 17, 2013

World’s Fastest Man on a Motorcycle Acquires Rights to Houston Mile Top Speed Competition

Hennessey Performance continues primary sponsorship of the Houston Mile top speed competition

(Houston, TX) – June 17, 2013 – Bill Warner, aka “Mr. 300,” owner of the Wild Brothers Motorsports motorcycle land speed racing team, has acquired the rights to the Houston Half Mile Shootout. Warner’s new company, National Mile Racing (NMR), will introduce a number of improvements for the popular Aero’s & Autos Half-Mile Shootout, in addition to introducing two new one-mile competitions at the current location.

The inaugural Houston Mile competition is scheduled for October 19 & 20, at Houston’s Ellington Airport. On-line registration will open August 18, and is limited to the first 150 registrants for both automobiles and motorcycles.

Warner and NMR bring a racer’s perspective to racing event management devoted to providing speed enthusiasts and fans with unforgettable top speed racing events in a fun and safe environment. Warner is the first and only racer to break the 300 mph barrier on a motorcycle and is known within racing circles as “Mr. 300.”

“I've been very fortunate on the track throughout my racing career, but the best part has been all the great people I’ve met along the way. I want to show my appreciation to them with events utilizing their suggestions and ideas, as well as mine,” said Warner. “I'm confident the new Houston Mile will reflect this collective input with memorable events for competitors, sponsors and fans," added Warner.

Local high performance specialists, Hennessey Performance (HPE), will present both the new Houston Mile events. “Hennessey Performance is proud to continue its association with the Houston Mile by agreeing to a long term sponsorship with NMR. We are confident Bill Warner and NMR will turn the Houston Mile into a premier speed event for Texas,” said Dave Golder, GM of HPE.

Ellington Airport is located 15 miles south of Houston, off the I-45/Gulf Freeway exit. For Houston Mile event details and registration information, visit www.HoustonMile.com

So i got a question for the busa/zx14 owners.....

I am 170lbs and my new zx14 has an exhaust (comes in this thursday),and will have power commander by then.

Having said that, should i get my ECU reflashed to eliminate the 185mph limiter?
Do you think i will be able to hit +185 in that mile? Hp #'s should be around 190rwhp and 119ft of torque.

Also for the guys who have done this before is there anyway you could suggest some gearing?

Im deff looking forward to this!

4.10s are fine... just jumbo size the rear tires


What records?
This is a first for Houston... so at first, everyone will be a record.

Look at Texas Mile to get a good account of local miles record holders.
Or are you looking for world records?

I would like to get to know a few of peeps (or all of yall) that do this to try to learn as much as i can to make sure my 1st outing will be a 10x better than if i just isolated and went by myself not knowing anything.

Ive heard that people are awesome at these events (unlike the 1/4 or 1/8 events because they are your competiton) and it seems that everyone has one common goal "to go fast and have fun" IDK if that true but thats what i heard.

Im sure Mr. Turbo (Terry) isnt very friendly with his stiff competiton. I was talking about the average joe's.

Oh no...local/maybe texas. lol

It seems that the cars that run these events are manufactured in the last 5 years (Newer cars), minus the 210mph white Fox...

I know they had an sn95 body with a huge twin turbo diesel go 205mph, but I can't find anything on any sn95 mph slips.
Just thought it might be cool to change my setup a bit, and see what she does. Not worth if there's 480 sn95 cars that have been crazy fast though.

Sounds like I've answered my own question, but just couldn't find anything researched.

I was thinking about running this to set a stock baseline for the SRT before mods.

I'll be hitting up Baytown soon, to get a base in the 1/4.

Agreed....

I've already gotten flack on a few because of the Hennessey part...but they are only a sponsor and hold no rights to the event or hosting it.

Everyone is different so it's hard to say,...I would flash the ECU to remove the limiter and start with that as a baseline. You will want to drop a tooth off the rear depending how the 14R is setup. I'm not a big Kawi guy but can give you my thoughts from the BUSA side.

I would contact Johnny Cheese in Austin for a custom tune to get you where you want to be...

First event will be the basis for records so whatever you run against others may be it. You could compare it with other ECTA, Texas Mile, Michigan, etc.. events but there isn't a national registry for them all. You'd have to do the research on your class...

This would be a great event to baseline your vehicle at before you make changes...

I haven't seen many sn95 at Texas Mile. There's TONS of new stuff, cause they have the money to enter. But there's also some "interesting" things, and then some random hotrods/sports cars. Last time I was at Texas Mile there was an LT1 camaro running... but he was the one and only LTx Fbody. Years before, they would've been common. You may have to look at older records to see what sn95s were running.
But yeah, texas mile is generally split by target MPH, not by vehicle.

Exactly.
I've been going through the archive results which does tell you make/model/year, but coming up empty handed. I just thought it would be cool to have the car "ranked" somewhere in the event.

These events are a ton of fun to attend!

Yes. You should hit the limiter. Most 1k's will. You need more hp and taller gearing to do much past that.

Where you talking about the power commander or the ECU? I was thinking of using http://www.guhlmotors.com/ to do my ECU reflash. Ive heard good things and brocks performance swears by them.

ECU, all tuning can be done through the ECU flash. Do NOT send Guhl $375 or whatever ridiculous price they are asking for a one time flash that is not custom tuned to remove the limiter.

You can build a flasher for very little money and do all the tuning yourself. No need to ever buy a PC ever again. If you aren't comfortable building one you can buy a flasher here: http://www.woolichracing.com/Product...&#productTable

Johnny can do all of that for you if you aren't sure what you are getting into...

Wow! Bill is going big time with his now. Stared his own Race organization and now taking over hosting the event. This is gonna be awesome.. Way better venue, better track and a real racer running it... Gonna be a success for sure.

I love the Texas Mile but....being here in Houston, this event will be a huge success eventually... I can't wait!
