For 12 years Gateway has been fortunate to have the talented Bracket Racer, Janie Palm speed down our drag strip. Since the track has been reopened, we have been witness to Janie’s many accomplishments such as winning 2012 Street Bike Champion, 2012 Pro Bike Champion and taking home the prestigious Wally Trophy.
This 2013 Season, Janie and the Willis Racing Team will be proudly backed by Gateway BMW. Be sure to be on the look out for Janie and her new BMW Modified S1000RR bike.
In addition to impressing us and her many fans, Janie also caught the interest of a reality show film making team. The show is centered around Janie and Drag Racing –Lifestyle. The majority of footage will be shot at Gateway Motorsports Park.
