LE-Head-Shot-Nitro-200x300LE (Louis Earl Tonglet)  , Son of NHRA Pro Stock motorcycle racer Gary Tonglet, and Brother to NHRA Pro Stock motorcycle drag racer GT Tonglet . LE started drag racing at the age of 10 when his Dad set up a custom Suzuki DS80 for him to run in the quarter mile. At 14, LE moved over to a Pro Stock Suzuki chassis, first with a stock 1100 engine then moving up to a modified engine that enabled him to run consistent 7 second ETs.
