Matt Smith was trying to give Victor Motorcycles the win at the 38th annual Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals on Sunday at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colorado. However, just seconds after the Christmas tree did their countdown, the race was over for him.

Smith went read, ending his race immediately. Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley Davidson rider Eddie Krawiec got the Wally with his pass.

Krawiec went 7.145 at 188,28 mph down the track.

“We’ve gotten off to a slow start since we had to switch bikes, so we were behind in terms of figuring out the strengths of this new bike and how it works,” Krawiec said. “We really like where we are at currently, and we’re going to try and keep this momentum going on the West Coast.”

Prior to this final round, Krawiec had one win and one runner-up this season. He’s now 38-28 in his racing career in final rounds.

Smith now has two runner-up finishes this season. He’s now 18-26 in final rounds in his career.

Krawiec held a 20-14 record against Smith in previous events. In addition, he had a 4-2 advantage over Smith in prior final rounds.

Despite Smith leaving too early, Krawiec had the second quickest and second fastest Pro Stock Motorcycle in NHRA history at Bandimere Speedway.
