Mike Motycka and his racing family longhauled from Mattawan, Michigan, and that's a loooooonnnnnngggg way from Bradenton. However, it's not an NMRA race if one of the Motyckas doesn't win. This time around it would be Mike taking a win in the Truck and Lightning class. Mike's Uncle Jesse-inspired '79 F-150 runs a big-block 460, and could probably outrun the General Lee, but that's not really the name of the game in the index-style Truck and Lightning class. At Bradenton, there were 22 trucks in attendance, and Mike made it through them all by cutting solid lights and running right on, or right next door to, his 11.98 dial.
