On October 11, 2008, A national record fell and a milestone was passed at the AMA Dragbike Fall Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park with the first-ever 250 mph pass in Top Fuel motorcycle.
Scorpion sponsored Top Fuel motorcycle rider Korry Hogan of Denver, Colo., made the first 250 mile per hour run in history on a motorcycle. The record-setting pass came in the second round of qualifying of the AMA Dragbike Fall Nationals on Saturday, October 11. Hogan, in the Budweiser lane of the track, launched hard and at first had difficulty maintaining control. When Hogan got to the far end of the track, history was made with a 5.95 second ET pass at 250.97 mph. The pass was a national speed record for the AMA and a motorcycle track speed record for Summit Motorsports Park. Hogan beat the old AMA Top Fuel motorcycle speed record of 245.36 mph set in March, 2006 by Larry McBride of Poquoson, Va. Hogan was runner up of the weekend's race, losing to McBride in Sundays elimination rounds The National Finals to be held November 7th-9th at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Valdosta, GA should prove to be very exciting in Top Fuel!

Everyone at Team Scorpion thanks and congratulates Korry and his team on reaching the 250 MPH mark.
