Dolamore Dialed-In for Summit Racing Series National Championship

After watching his dad race a motorcycle for several years, Kyle Dolamore decided that he, too, wanted to race a motorcycle.

He began by climbing onto his dad’s Suzuki and learning the lay of the land at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio four years ago. After making a few modifications to the motorcycle to get it to run low tens — and to get him accustomed to going quicker and faster — he climbed onto a new Suzuki two years ago, and now lays down 8.50s in the track’s highly competitive Wiseco/Cycle Tech Super Bike category.

“Watching my dad race helped me a lot when I started racing, and it continues to help me today,” said Dolamore, of his dad, Tony Dolamore. “He also wanted me to ride with him, and I’m glad that I get to." 

Dolamore, who lives in Wellington, Ohio and is a senior at Black River High School in Sullivan, Ohio, finished in seventh place in Wiseco/Cycle Tech Super Bike points in 2016 after consistently going rounds. He also qualified to be part of the team representing Summit Motorsports Park at the NHRA North Central Division Summit Racing Series Finals at Lucas Oil Raceway, Sept. 16-18, 2016, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

There, in addition to helping the team secure a second place finish, he rode to a win, and as a result, he’s now gearing up to go to the NHRA Summit Racing Series National Championship, Nov. 10-13, 2016 at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, California.

“Making the team was a big deal to me because of the tough competition at Summit Motorsports Park, and to have their support when I got my first-ever win at the team finals in Indy was awesome,” said Dolamore. “It will feel different in Pomona because I won’t have the team there, but I’ll do my best to represent them and the track well.”

With Dolamore every step of the way are his dad, Tony Dolamore, mom, Traci Dolamore and brother, Michael Maday, who also races a Kawasaki.

“I'm very proud of Kyle's accomplishments this year, and a win in Pomona would be icing on the cake,” said Bill Bader, Jr., Summit Motorsports Park president. “However, win or lose, the simple fact that he's there makes him a champion already.”
