Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Andrew Hines set a national time record on Saturday. That allowed him to become the PSM No. 1 qualifier at the 50th annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway in Gainesville, Florida.
Hines used his fourth qualifying pass to lay down a 6.720 at 199.94 mph pass. He broke a record that was in place since 2012.
“The guys on our team are doing a great job making sure that we get motorcycles that are flawless and making sure that we go to the start line with no problems,” Hines said. “I was really hoping to go 200. That was really the point to strive for and it would’ve been nice to get that one out of the way. Tomorrow is a new day and we will try again then.”
He will face Cory Reed in the first-round of eliminations.
Fellow Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson rider Eddie Krawiec is the No. 2 qualifier. The New Jersey native – who now resides in Indiana – went 6.747 at 200.59 mph.
