Karen Stoffer returned in a Pro Stock Motorcycle in years. She lost her full-time Geico sponsorship following the 2011 season.

Since that time, she’s struggled to find any new sponsorships. Now, she may be able to pick up one or a few following her first win in four years.

Stoffer, who drove a bike sponsored by Karen Stoffer Enterprises, defeated Eddie Krawiec in the Pro Stock Motorcycle final round at the Amalie Oil NHRA Gatornationals. She also won this event in 2007.

Stoffer defeated Krawiec for the first time in the final round, as she’s 2-1 against him now. Krawiec also is 13-5 all-time against her.

She picked up her seventh national event win in her career.

Krawiec was leading following his 0.053 advantage on the Christmas tree. However, he ran into problems and slowed, before sitting up at the mid-way point.

Stoffer would run past him for the win with her 6.900 elapsed time. Krawiec and his broke Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson went 7.884.
