The Buzzzzz Rag is a magazine full of vintage ride reviews, articles, classified ad’s, cartoons, and just plain cool stuff. I sent them a email telling them about John Eads, they already knew all about him, receiving the NASRA lifetime achievement award at the Twist and Gone! this past October. As you can tell they picked up the article and now it’s been published in the November issue.

This past weekend at the Twist and Gone! we had the honor of racing with the legend John Eads. As you may know John is the oldest known and still the fastest, in the 1/4 mile, scooter racer running a 90mph at 14.46 ET in 1958!
His lovely wife Thema and John were gracious enough to spend the weekend with us, share some wisdom, and then he showed us how it’s done on the track. At over 90 years old John still hasn’t slowed down and it was a real honor to spend time with them.
Thanks for the history lesson John!
Welcome John Eads to the Lifetime Achievement Award Winners Club.

Special thanks to Steven Lorenz from Arcadia Cushman for putting this all together for us. From shuttling the Eads down from Kokomo, taking them out on the town, and taking care of everything they needed we owe you quite a debt. Thank you.
