DRAG RACING STAR Rickey Gadson is the newest member of the 2Wheel Tuner Magazine staff, joining the team as Contributing Editor, Drag Racing.
The formal announcement was made this week during the Dealer Expo in Indianapolis, where Gadson was on hand to co-host the magazine's VIP party Friday night.
Gadson is the winningest rider in the AMA Dragbike Series and an eight-time world champion. He currently competes in the Pro Street class, riding the ZX-14 for Kawasaki. After a decade as a factory rider for the manufacturer, Gadson has become one of the best-recognized names in drag racing.
As Contributing Editor, Gadson will have a monthly column, which is making its debut in the April issue. In addition, he will guide the magazine's drag racing coverage. Drag racing has always played an important part in the aftermarket sportbike industry, providing a platform for many of the performance products and styles that have eventually been reflected on the street.
