Like Steve Torrence, Andrew Hines is on a similar hot streak. Hines picked up his sixth win of the season at the 40th annual Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals presented by Pennzoil on Sunday.

Hines defeated his teammate Eddie Krawiec in the final round on Thunder Mountain at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colorado. He also snapped Krawiec’s win streak at the facility, as he won last year’s event.

Hines went 7.174 at 186.67 mph to win the Wally. Krawiec, on the other hand, went 7.222 at 186.38 mph.

“Rolling out this new FXDR, it’s been so much work these last few months,” Hines said. “Bringing that motorcycle here, we didn’t know what quite to expect, but we put them both in the final round. You’ve got to have the full preparation and make sure your mind is right coming to these national events. Everybody in the class can step up at any time, and it seems like my bike has been in the right place at the right time in the right round. We just ride the wave when we can.”

Since winning his first race of the season, Hines has not won two events. He did not win the DENSO Auto Parts NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on April 14th, as Hector Arana Jr. won.

Then, at the Route 66 NHRA Nationals at Route 66 Raceway, he also did not win, as Matt Smith won.

He has a 25-2 round win-loss record on the season.

Before this final round appearance, Krawiec had a 31-22 win-loss record against Hines in prior events. Krawiec also had a 14-11 final round record against Hines.

Krawiec had the starting line advantage off of the Christmas tree. However, by the 100-foot mark, Hines was in the lead.

From there on out to the finish line, Hines held the lead. He won by 0.0321 seconds, or approx. 9 feet.

This is Hines’ 54th career win. With this win, the all-time wins leader in the category has seven more wins than his teammate.

Also, with this win, Hines has now won five times on the Thunder Mountain. Besides the 2019 win, he also win on 2016, 2014, 2010, and in 20006.
