NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle Results From Brainerd Int’l Raceway
With only one race remaining before the six-event Countdown to the Championship commences, Eddie Krawiec took his third consecutive Pro Stock Motorcycle victory of the season by racing past teammate Andrew Hines in an all-Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson final round. Krawiec finished with a 6.844-second pass at 194.30mph to take his 30th career victory and second at Brainerd International Raceway, while Hines clocked a 6.894 at 190.06 in the runner-up effort.

Eddie Krawiec raises the Wally for the third time this season at the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals.
“I have a great motorcycle under me,” said Krawiec, who beat a murderers’ row of past world champions including Hector Arana Sr., LE Tonglet, and the City Racing Gunner of Matt Smith who made it to the semi-final, to advance to the final round.
“We’ve just lacked consistency,” Krawiec continued. “I’d say since Denver we’ve really gotten into the groove and figured out what the motorcycle wanted. I’ve been fortunate enough to go to three final rounds and win all three and also win the NHRA Pro Bike Battle in Sonoma, so I’m on a pretty good roll. Hopefully it’s not too early because after Indy is when you really want to get on a roll like this, but hopefully I can continue it all the way through to the end of Pomona.”
With the win, Krawiec increased his PSM series lead to 166 over Hector Arana Jr. and also secured a berth in the NHRA Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship along with Arana Jr., and Hines.
