By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Flyin’ Ryan Racing Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Ryan Oehler picked up his second Wally on Sunday. This was his first Wally at a four-wide event.

Oehler won the DENSO Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada. He defeated a quad of riders that featured Cory Reed, Steve Johnson, and Scotty Pollacheck.

“We started the weekend off in the sand at the end of the track and round one, we basically ruined the engine,” Oehler said. “We changed motors and made a rapid turnaround, and I can’t thank my family, my team, my crew and my sponsors enough. This is awesome. We got our second Wally and there’s going to be more.”

The Illinois native on his first Wally last year at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis in Brownsburg, Indiana. He won the E3 Spark Plug NHRA Nationals last July in the NHRA’s first national back following a hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Oehler won by approximately 17 feet ahead of Reed.

“I love it. I absolutely love it,” he said of four-wide racing. “But I’m the guy that likes a challenge and the intensity that the four-wide presents, the staging intensity. It’s just something I thrive off of. I won’t say I wish they were all four-wide, because it is a whole different race platform, but I do enjoy when we get to go to one.”
