“Road to the Corkscrew”
Feuling and racer Ben Bostrom team up for a behind-the-scenes documentary on the King of the Baggers race at Laguna Seca.
Race Report from Feuling Parts
The Feuling King of the Baggers RoadGlide piloted by Ben Bostrom ran strong through practice on Friday, qualifying 4th. We made key suspension tweaks before Saturday morning practice and picked up 2 more seconds. In the last lap of practice the rear cylinder head failed, the exhaust rocker shaft broke and pulled the shaft stud threads out of the aluminum, destroying the perch.
Industry friends Vance & Hines with Harley Davidson’s blessing set us up with a new SE 131” crate engine to get us into the race. Our team hustled with a 2-hour engine swap and had Ben out on the grid minutes before the race. Ben aggressively launched the RoadGlide for a great start but our mule ran into issues. We had to re-use the gasket between the engine and trans and it was apparent the seal was compromised creating an oil leak and suction/sumping issues.
Congrats to Tyler O’Hara and the S&S Cycle team on the checkered flag, shout-out to all the teams that helped make this a super rad event.
Thanks again to Moto America and Drag Specialties for making this event happen and thanks to Ben Bostrom for joining our team!
