Trim-Tex has proudly sponsored Larry "Spiderman" McBride since 1999. We are excited to announce that for the 2016 and 2017 motorcycle drag race seasons, Trim-Tex has upped the ante to become a major sponsor of the talented McBride.
ABOUT LARRY "SPIDERMAN" MCBRIDE
Larry "Spiderman" McBride is a 15-time Top Fuel Motorcycle champion and he was the first rider to run under the 6.50 second elapsed time barrier, setting the record of 6.49-seconds in 1991 - a mark which could not be broken for three years. The run of McBride's career came in 1999 at Houston Raceway Park when years of hard work, innovation and fearlessness helped him become the first drag bike racer to cover the track in less than six seconds at 5.99.
In 2012 McBride added another record to his impressive resume when he recorded the quickest pass for any electric vehicle with a 6.94 at 201 mph on the innovative Lawless, a battery-powered drag bike. The project was highlighted on the television show American Chopper.
McBride received the "Spiderman" moniker in 1980 at the NHRA U.S. Nationals when an announcer commented on his trademark riding style of "crawling" around on the bike to keep it in the groove.
