Jay “Pee Wee” Gleason

Yamaha Mourns The Passing Of Dragbike Racing Legend Jay “PeeWee” Gleason

Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., is sad to learn that Jay “PeeWee” Gleason, an iconic dragbike racer and member of its Yamaha family of racers, passed away over the weekend.

Bob Starr, General Manager of Communication at Yamaha Motor U.S., said, “PeeWee is a huge part of the Yamaha VMAX legend. His talent on a dragbike helped us sell a lot of VMAX motorcycles, and he will forever be associated with the fabled, V4-powered, Sport Heritage machine. Mention ‘PeeWee Gleason’ and a lot of people instantly think of the VMAX, and what he did on that bike. We will miss him, but we will never forget him.”

Back in 1986, for a feature story that was published in Cycle World magazine, Jay ‘PeeWee’ Gleason, a well-known and highly talent dragbike racer, climbed aboard a Yamaha VMX12 VMAX at Baylands Raceway, did a rousing and smoky burnout to bring the rear tire up to temperature and maximum grip, and proceeded to post a quarter-mile time of under nine seconds.

That day, the world found out that the VMAX was the fastest, quickest, most powerful production bike ever. It also compelled many customers to visit their local Yamaha dealers and purchase VMAX motorcycles of their very own.

In 2009, more than two decades after his original VMAX quarter-mile run, PeeWee repeated history aboard a 2009 VMAX, on which he ran the quarter mile in 9.513 seconds and at a trap speed of 143.70 miles per hour.

Jay “PeeWee” Gleason was one of a kind; a soft-spoken, yet highly talented dragbike racer. Godspeed, PeeWee.

1972 Kawasaki Mach IV H2 Triple | TWO-STROKES!


MachSpeed: Kawasaki’s awe-inspiring 1972 Mach IV and the debunking of the Widowmaker myth.

Even racers and hard-core enthusiasts of the day were anxious about the Kawasaki H2, especially those who’d ridden its peaky and twitchy 500cc little brother—the 1969 Mach III H1. “Many of us,” says old-school club-racer Jack Seaver, “considered the idea of a 750cc H1 and asked, ‘Are you kidding?’”
