Three-time world champion Eric McKinney rocketed to the top spot in Pro Nitrous Motorcycle on the strength of a 4.01 at 178.35 aboard the McKinney Motorsports Hayabusa in a Thursday qualifying session to kick off the Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) DeCerbo Construction American Doorslammer Challenge presented by Callies at Summit Raceway Park in Norwalk, Ohio.
The motorcycle is typically piloted by his teammate and tuner, Ashley Owens. The Ohio rider hopes to dip into the 3-second zone before the event is over.
“It’s definitely awesome to qualify No. 1 so far,” McKinney said. “I’m riding Ashley’s bike and he has it dialed in. He’s trying to fix my bike. It’s got some issues. We missed most of the races last year. It’s awesome to come to our first race this year, at basically our home track, and set the pole right from the get-go. Hopefully we stay there.”
Two other riders made a qualifying attempt in the first session, with Chris Garner-Jones taking his Jones Racing Hayabusa to a 4.182 at 171.27 and Gerald Smith following with his 4.697 at 137.20.
The PDRA DeCerbo Construction American Doorslammer Challenge presented by Callies will continue Friday at Summit Motorsports Park.
