Bill Furr Bill Furr

Achievements:
Drag racer.


Born in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1952, Bill Furr's first motorcycle was a 1960 50-cc Sears Allstate. Furr began street racing in the 1970s, and in 1981 opened his own speed shop in Orangeburg, South Carolina. Furr enjoys the celebrity of being the first man to put a Harley-Davidson into the sixes, which he did at Rockingham in October, 1994. His quickest ET to date is 6.53 seconds. Furr credits much of his success to help from Pete Hill and Jim McClure. He remains active today and has competed in as many as three classes a season, running Harley-Davidsons in Top Fuel, Pro Fuel and Pro Dragster classes. In 2002 Furr began to campaign a new 60-degree twin similar to the Harley-Davidson V-Rod.
