Lucas Oil Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Hector Arana Sr. qualified for his 140th consecutive race, which is the seventh-longest active streak in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, but son Hector Arana Jr. couldn’t get his Lucas Oil Racing TV Buell into the field of the seventh annual NHRA Four-Wide Nationals presented by Lowes Foods, ending a streak of 80 races that dated back to his debut in 2011.
“Never give up, never quit,” Arana Jr. said. “This is only going to make us stronger. When we figure out the problem, we’re going to be good to go. It might take another race; hopefully it doesn’t. I prefer to have this happen now than this happen at the end of the season.
