The #26 XR1200 sponsored by Oxford Consulting Group/ RevZillia.com/RIDER Insurance had a mixed weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Team Rider and Owner Peter Cline qualified for the Vance & Hines XR1200 race with the RacerRuss Harley-Davidson, but fell during the later part of Friday’s qualifying session, suffered a broken collarbone and could not make the race.

“With the tire test behind us, we knew where we had to be with our times to make the cutoff. On Friday, my crew chief (Witchkraft Racing’s Aaron Bagwell) made a spring swap recommended by Öhilins USA’s Lenny and we dropped time in both sessions and made the cut-off in Q1. I just got greedy and paid the price. There’s no doubt that we could have qualified even higher in the order and placed well in both races. Our Wounded Warrior Project Alumni crew was amazing! Despite the accident, we qualified, put our warriors with another team, gave tremendous value to disabled veterans and had fun. I’d say we had a successful weekend even if we didn’t grid up” stated Team Ohio’s PeteCline. Cline’she injury will require 6-8 weeks to heal.

“This was my second race working with Pete Cline, Team Ohio Racing and their #26 Harley-Davidson in the Vance &Hines XR1200 series,” said Sgt. Edward L. Stow, 2-7 Cav, 1st Cav Div, U.S. Army, (2 tours in Iraq). It has been a truly remarkable experience. My wife and I brought our son this time, and he is still talking about all the motorcycles. You couldn’t ask for a more patriotic team. It has been an honor working with them, and amazing what they are doing for our nations warriors. Hooah!!!!!”

As Team Ohio Racing looks towards the next event at New Jersey Motorsports Park, plans will include having East Coast warriors participate within the team. The team is seeking team partners to fund their efforts at NJMP as well as a rider to fill the vacant seat and work with the Wounded Warrior Project Alumni crew. Interested, experienced riders with an AMA Pro Racing License should contact Pete Cline at silopete@yahoo.com with their race resumes.
