Championship Showcase: George AmosPerhaps the best season of all the champions in 2012 belongs to Garden Grove, CA resident and long-time racer George Amos. George managed a feat rarely seen as he won both the Pro 2 and Motorcycle Pro 2 categories in NSRA series competition. You may think that seems easy winning two classes, but George won racing two distinctly different types of vehicles. George drove his 510 ci Spitzer Dragster to four victories on the season while he also rode his trademark Trinity Racing 3-Wheeler powered by a 250 cc Honda to two victories in the Motorcycle Pro 2 class. Even bigger was that at the April & May Soboba races, George doubled up winning both classes on the vastly different vehicles. That shows major versatility as a driver. George has a long list of sponsors to thank including Veteran Ed’s Water Damage Specialists, Amos Drywall, Premier Auto, Trinity Racing, Port Magic Racing, Frederosa Racing, and Lopez Plumbing. He would also like to thank the folks that help him get down the track every time; Harry McDermott, Craig Spencer, Rob Main, and Jim Williams, who does George’s motor work in the Dragster and is currently freshening it for the 2013 race season. George’s most memorable moments were the aforementioned Soboba events where he managed to win with both the Dragster and the ATV. Look for George to be a front runner again in 2013 as he approaches racing a little differently. George plans on retiring his trademark Trinity Racing 3-wheeler and concentrating on running Pro 1 & Pro 2 with his Dragster. With the success he saw in 2012, there’s no doubt he will be battling it out for the title again in 2013.
