Vance and Hines/Harley-Davidson Eddie Krawiec takes another win at Norwalk

Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals

Pro Stock Motorcycle racer Krawiec won his third race of 2016 when he defeated his Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson teammate Andrew Hines in the final. Krawiec, who was also the No. 1 qualifier, had a winning run of 6.926 at 194.72 to defeat Hines, who recorded a 6.937 at 193.29. Krawiec’s path to victory was eventful because he went off the end of the track and into the sand trap following both his semifinal- and final-round runs.

“We went back to the pit and had to take out 30 pounds of pea gravel,” said Krawiec. “We put new brake pads on it, checked the fluid, drained everything, and made sure it was 100 percent. We stopped fine in the lanes and everything. I see my fourth-round win light against my teammate and went, ‘Not again’. I pulled the clutch in and went in for a ride.”

The NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing will resume July 7-10 with the Route 66 NHRA Nationals at Route 66 Raceway in Chicago.
