NHRA Press Release

----------------------

Sept. 1, 1996 Top Fuel Motorcycle rider Elmer Trett died from injuries suffered in an accident Sunday during an exhibition pass at the NHRA U.S. Nationals at Indianapolis Raceway Park. Trett, 53, from Demorest, Ga., died at Methodist Hospital. Trett fell off his motorcycle in the shutdown area for no apparent reason. Top Fuel Motorcycle is an exhibition category. It is not a competition category conducted at NHRA Winston Drag Racing Series national events. Trett was a pioneer in Top Fuel Motorcycle racing. He recorded the quickest pass by a Top Fuel Motorcycle, 6.069 seconds, Aug. 18 at Indianapolis Raceway Park during the Pingel Thundernationals, not a NHRA event. Trett also recorded the fastest speed in the history of the category, 235.10 mph, at the Thundernationals.
