I’m very pleased that Randakk’s Cycle Shakk has renewed the partnership with ace road-racer Dennis Parrish of Rio Rancho, NM as my competition partner for 2013.

Also new for 2013 is a newly constructed Honda CB350 that we will run in AHRMA’s 350 Sportsman classes.  Collaborator Shasta Smith is maintaining a 350 Race-bike Build Album.

Racer Bio:

Dennis is a 57 year-old grandfather who’s been indulging in his passion for motorcycles for over 40 years. He started racing in 1974 and has competed in flat track, motocross, desert racing, road-racing and even ice racing! In 1975 he worked as a motorcycle mechanic for Honda and Kawasaki dealerships in the Pacific Northwest for 10 years before joining the military and is now an engineer for a leading computer chip firm.

Dennis started road-racing a vintage ’74 Kawasaki Z1 in 2002 and won his local club’s Historic Vintage class championship. He started racing nationally with AHRMA in 2003, winning back-to-back Vintage Superbike class championships in 2003 and 2004 along with local and regional class championships. He has finished in the top four nationally for AHRMA Vintage Superbike and Formula Vintage classes most years.

Dennis holds expert road-race licenses with AHRMA (#490), CCS (#49) and SMRI (#49).

For 2012 Dennis will be competing in AHRMA’s Vintage Superbike and Formula Vintage classes on his ’81 DOHC four cylinder Hondas. He’s also competing in regional and local series on his ’74 Kawasaki Z1 in Historic Vintage and Super Vintage classes. If you’re looking for Dennis in the pits, don’t look for the small fast guy – look for the 6’3″ guy wearing Randakk’s Cycle Shakk / The Vintage Monkey regalia!
