ENGLISHTOWN, NJ — The Alligator hunter has been able to wrangle the historic NHRA Summernationals for the second time in his career. Jerry Savoie — the reigning Pro Stock Motorcycle World Champion — got his first win of the season on Sunday at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park on his White Alligator Racing Suzuki.

Savoie defeated Hector Arana Jr., who was driving a Lucas Oil Racing TV-sponsored Buell, in the final round. Savoie went 6.918 at 192.85 mph.

“I’ve had some struggles earlier in the season, but each win is special because you never know which one will be your last,” Savoie said. “This track has been good to me in the past and we were able to take this one home today and I’m extremely thankful for that.”

Arana Jr., who was faster, went 6.862 at 195.62 mph in the losing effort.

Savoie won the race from the starting line. This is his first hole shot win of the season.

He is now 1-1 in final rounds this season. It’s also his seventh Pro Stock Motorcycle win — but also the site of his second career win, as well, as he also won during the 2015 NHRA Summernationals.

Savoie won that race off of the starting line, as Jimmy Underdahl went red right out of the gates.
