This is Krawiec’s second Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals win in his career. He has three wins this season and 39 in his career.

“We had a great motorcycle all weekend long,” Krawiec said. “We just need to keep finessing it and get it better and better and better. I couldn’t be prouder of my crew that I got right now; everybody that puts forth the effort in our program. It’s been nonstop the last two weeks at our shop and for it all to come together and to celebrate here having half of our shop here, it’s just something special.”

Krawiec won his first U.S. Nationals in 2014. He now has a 39-28 record in final rounds, including a 3-1 record this season.

This was Arana’s fourth final round of the season. He’s now races to fourth final rounds in his career at Lucas Oil Raceway.

Arana previously won at the track in 2011. He’s now 11-11 in career final rounds.

Krawiec, prior to the final round, was 11-7 against Arana Jr. Each had won two finals against each other.

Arana Jr. had the starting line advantage. He would keep it through the 660-foot mark, before Krawiec races ahead of him for the win.

Krawiec won by 0.0131 seconds, or approx. 4 feet.
