Lucas Oil TV Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Hector Arana Jr. won the NHRA Toyota Nationals on Sunday at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada. Arana Jr. defeated Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson rider Eddie Krawiec in the final round.

Arana Jr. — who was also the PSM No. 1 qualifier for the event — went 6.885 at 193.35 mph. Krawiec — who was the PSM No. 2 qualifier in Vegas — went 6.911 at 195.05 mph.

“We did a great job qualifying and that sent the tone for [Sunday],” Arana Jr. said. “It gave me the confidence I needed. I had great lights in qualifying and did it again today on race day. Great preparation and everything came back together. We just want to qualify well, win rounds and win races.”
