At Virginia Motorsports Park last week, Larry “Spiderman” McBride took the Lawless EV Racing Rocket drag racing bike to a new world electric drag racing record of 7.246 seconds while reaching a speed of 185.46 miles per hour. The 1,610-horsepower bike rode straight to the top of the National Electric Drag Racing’s standings, proving once again that electric bikes can have serious chops.
