Andrew Hines tied the late Dave Schultz by capturing his fifth NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle Championship at the NHRA Finals from Pomona, Calif., Nov. 15.
His Screamin’ Eagle Harley-Davidson teammate, Eddie Krawiec, defeated challenger Jerry Savoie, who broke just off the starting line, to clinch the title for Hines.
“I’ve just been trying to keep my head level,” said Hines, who at 32 is the youngest NHRA Pro to win five world championships. “My outstanding Harley-Davidson team did a great job of keeping me focused and keeping the pressure off of me. It was awesome that my wife [Tanya] got to give me a kiss right before I ran, and thanks to my teammate for helping to get the job done. I guess he put the fear of Harley into them. Five championships is pretty awesome.”
