Ed Krawiec Defeats Andrew Hines in all-Harley Final Round

NORWALK, Ohio (June 26, 2016) – Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle®/Vance & Hines racer Ed Krawiec swept the Pro Stock Motorcycle field at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals. Aboard a thundering Harley-Davidson® V-Rod® drag bike, Krawiec was the top qualifier for the event and then blasted through Sunday elimination rounds, defeating his Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle®/Vance & Hines teammate, Andrew Hines, in an all-Harley-Davidson® motorcycle final round.

“Any time I race Andrew in the final it’s fun because we can line up and know that the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle team has already won,” said Krawiec, who leads in Pro Stock Motorcycle points with three wins in four final-round appearances after five events this season. “As a team we had a great weekend. I set a quick qualifying time on Friday night when it was about 20 degrees cooler than it was Sunday, and we were able to adjust our tune-up and maintain that V-Rod® motorcycle power through the weekend.”

Krawiec raced his motorcycle to a new Pro Stock Motorcycle track-record elapsed time of 6.822 seconds in the second round of qualifying on Friday, a run that stood up on Saturday to earn Krawiec the top seed for eliminations. Krawiec also posted the fastest top speed of the weekend at 196.56 mph. Hines, the defending Pro Stock Motorcycle champion, qualified second with a close 6.853-second time.

Krawiec and Hines each won three elimination rounds on Sunday to advance to the final, the 20th time the pair of Pro Stock Motorcycle champions have faced off with a Wally trophy on the line. The racers left the starting line together with an identical 0.019-second reaction time, but Krawiec prevailed with a 6.926-second ET to best the 6.937-second run …read more
