The once-dominant HTP Performance motorcycle drag racing team has struggled through growing pains over the last couple of years, but HTP put pain in the past at the Mickey Thompson MIROCK Superbike Series Fast by Gast Summer Nationals at Maryland International Raceway. Rider Danny Cox came out of the 14th starting position to score his first Orient Express Pro Street win over NHDRO champion Doug Gall in a classic nitrous vs. turbo final round.
