High performance motorcycles are their passion
In 1980 George Bryce and his wife Jackie founded Star Racing to support the motorcycle drag racing community. Our high performance motorcycle company has evolved into a successful mail-order parts business, with engine building and machine shop services. Our state-of-the art machine shop houses Sunnen boring and honing equipment, Spintron, DTS, and Superflow engine dynos, and a DynoJet chassis dyno.
Star Power, the street performance division of Star Racing, has evolved into the development of late-model hot rod V-Twins the street. We now stock a full line of S&S engines, upgrade packages, mail order kits and support parts motorcyclists, dealers and distributors. Our web site,www.hopupyourharley.com, is continually updated with photos, dyno sheets and information on our latest creations.
BIO - George Bryce
For over 3 decades, George Bryce has been the dynamic force behind the exciting NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle series. Starting out as the owner/rider/tuner of the Star Racing machines, Bryce garnered enough knowledge in all three areas to become the most sought after man in the business today. He is credited with developing more talent than any other team owner in the history of the sport. Against all odds, and with naysayers at every turn George took a raw, untested Angelle Seeling and turned her into the most victorious female racer in NHRA history. He has had similar experiences with nearly a dozen other riders.
Untiring in his winning effort, George Bryce is widely acclaimed for his ability to manage all aspects of a successful racing operation. Melding the psychological and physical has made him indispensable to potential professional racers. So much so that he teaches Pro Stock motorcycle racing at the acclaimed NHRA Drag Racing School in Gainesville, Florida. The classes are always filled and repeat attendance speaks volumes as to George's knowledge.
In 1980 George and his wife, Jackie Bryce founded Star Racing and in the thirty-seven years since have positioned the business as a premier motorcycle racing and R&D facility, with engine building, machine shop services, four dynos, a Spintron, CNC machine and a highly successful mail-order parts business. Among other things, George is team coach and head tuner. To date has won six NHRA national championships and 80 event wins as a rider, owner, or crew chief in 149 final rounds of competition.
George Bryce resides in Americus, Georgia along with his wife Jackie and their daughter, Julie.
