The Hogslayer in action back in the mid-1970s. 

Excitement is building among vintage racing enthusiasts for a new independent documentary about the multi-world champion motorcycle drag racing legend – the Hogslayer. Slated for release later this year, the production company, The Edge Ltd., is accepting additional documentary materials and offering sponsorships on this exciting project. 

Hogslayer: The Unapproachable Legend is the true-life story of the dual-engine Norton dragster designed, built and raced by John Gregory and Tom C. (“TC”) Christenson of Sunset Motors in Kenosha, Wis. The documentary chronicles the Sunset Motors Racing Team’s unrivaled innovation and unbridled courage as they faced unyielding challengers throughout the United States and Europe in the 1970’s. The Hogslayer dragster is presently on exhibit at the National Motorcycle Museum in the United Kingdom.     

The project is currently being financed and produced independently by The Edge Ltd., however the production company is offering sponsorships to assist with the remaining funding and to share in the premieres and distribution promotion of the documentary. The Edge Ltd. is also offering an open invitation for anyone familiar with the Hogslayer story to submit film, photographs, publications and video of the dragster and race team for inclusion in the documentary. For additional information or to submit materials, contact James Cutting, independent producer, The Edge Ltd., at (262) 224-3777 or edgeltd@charter.net 

You can find more information on the Hogslayer by visiting TC’s Hogslayer website, and at his Hogslayer Facebook page. For a preview of the documentary, check out the video below. –Richard Backus
