Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Pro Stock Motorcycle Eddie Krawiec was looking to be the first PSM driver to win four wins in a row in a long-time. Krawiec has won three straight races coming into the sixth annual AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois.

Krawiec lost in the second round of the race. He lost to Nitro Fish Racing Pro Stock Motorcycle Suzuki rider LE Tonglet, snapping a 12-round win streak.

He was trying to become the first driver to win four straight races since Matt Hines. Hines is his crew chief, who also overlooks his brother Andrew’s bike.

Hines won four straight in 1998.

Tonglet had an 0.001 light to a 6.825 at 196.53 mph pass to get the win. Krawiec had an 0.028 light, but went 6.831 at 196.59 mph.

With Krawiec out of the field, it’ll be interesting to see who will capitalize on his exist. Will it be Tonglet, or another driver? Only time will tell.

Tonglet will face Matt Smith in the semi-final. Hines, Krawiec’s Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson teammate, will face Scotty Pollacheck in the other semi-final.

Jerry Savoie was the last winner, who was not named Krawiec. Savoie won the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway in Aug. in Brainerd, Minn.
