David Schultz is the only motorcycle drag racer who has scored a double-double. Now he wants to become the first to score a triple. In pro bike parlance, a "double" is winning both the National Hot Rod Assn. and the International Drag Bike Assn. championships in the same year. A "double double" means doing it two years in a row. Schultz did it in 1987 and 1988. A "triple" is winning the NHRA, IDBA and the Prostar series titles in the same year.

"I watched David die." Nancy Schultz drops her head, covers her eyes, tightens as if waiting for an explosion. But instead of tears, there are breaths. Rhythmic breaths. Deeper with each one. Moments later her hands are down, her smile back, her mind racing. As manager of the Dave Schultz Wrestling Club, she has a spirit to nurture and money to raise. "I'm prepared to do so much begging, I'll need knee pads," she says with a laugh. So this is how it works.
