ENNIS, Texas (October 18, 2015) – Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle®/Vance & Hines rider Ed Krawiec turned up the heat in the NHRA Countdown to the Championship at the AAA Texas Fall Nationals. Krawiec raced a Harley-Davidson® V-Rod motorcycle to the final round of Pro Stock Motorcycle eliminations and now lies just 21 points out of first place in the Countdown standings with two races left in the season.
“Great preparation and consistent performance wins championships,” said Krawiec, a three-time Pro Stock Motorcycle champion, “and it looks like it’s going to go down to the wire for the title this year. I think I’ve got the team and Harley-Davidson bike to win it all.”
Krawiec took advantage of a first-round loss by the Pro Stock Motorcycle points leader, Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle®/Vance & Hines rider Andrew Hines. Hines, the defending class champion, still leads the Pro Stock motorcycle class with 2,412 points. Krawiec now is in second with 2,391 points.
The fifth round of the six-race NHRA Countdown to the Championship starts Oct. 29. at the 15th annual NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
