Krawiec raced his Screamin’ Eagle / Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson to a 6.849 pass at 194.21 to secure his first No. 1 qualifier of the season and 34th of his career.

 

“This is a big race for us, the motorcycles and all of the NHRA,” Kraweic stated. “It’s definitely a tough field out there. I think for Pro Stock Motorcycle it’s going to be a nice tight battle.  I’m confident in myself and my abilities. We just need to string it all together.”
