In an all Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley Davidson Pro Stock Motorcycle battle, Eddie Krawiec defeated his teammate Andrew Hines in the final round. Krawiec won the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Minnesota.
Krawiec, the No. 1 qualifier for the event, went 6.897 at 195.14 mph. Hines, who was the No. 2 qualifier for the event, went 6.903 at 193.99 mph.
“It’s about building momentum right now,” Krawiec said. “We know where we are and we’re in a great position. I think as long as you have that great drive and have that upbeat spirit, you have everybody all excited and that’s what it’s about right now. I have a good motorcycle under me. I know if it’s not winning, it’s most likely because of me. It’s just great to come out and run well. We had a consistent motorcycle and that’s what you need to win races.”
Krawiec had a 29-20 advantage over his teammate in prior events. He is now 14-9 against his teammate all-time in final rounds.
The New Jersey native had the advantage off of the starting line. He was able to hold on to get the win over Hines. This is his third Wally in Brainerd, as he won by approx. 6 feet.
This is Krawiec’s fourth win of the season. He has the most wins of the season thus far, as L.E. Tonglet has two, while Matt Smith, Hector Arana Jr., and Jerry Savoie all have a win each.
