Harley-Davidson Pro Stock Motorcycle driver Eddie Krawiec is the No. 1 qualifier at the 37th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta Dragway. This is Krawiec’s first No. 1 qualifier of the season.
He now has 34 No. 1 qualifiers in his career. He got the top spot after having a 6.849 at 194.21 mph on his Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson.
“This is a big race for us, the motorcycles and all of the NHRA,” Kraweic stated. “It’s definitely a tough field out there. I think for Pro Stock Motorcycle it’s going to be a nice tight battle. I’m confident in myself and my abilities. We just need to string it all together.”
