Tonglet joins Krawiec and Andrew Hines to win two Pro Stock Motorcycle U.S. Nationals Wally’s since 2010. John Hall, Hector Arana Jr., and Jerry Savoie also have one win each.
“I try not to think about anything,” Tonglet said. “We just go up there and try our best and whatever happens, happens. I don’t lose sleep over this since this is still a hobby for us. We just come out here to have fun.”
Tonglet had the lead off of the starting line. As the two bikes went down the track, the Louisiana native stayed in front of Krawiec for the win.
He won by 0.0264 seconds, or approx. 8 feet. Tonglet now has three wins this season and 19 in his career.
Besides winning at Indy, he also won at the inaugural Virginia NHRA Nationals when he defeated Hines in the final round in June. He also defeated Hines again to win the Toyota Sonoma Nationals in July.
