Three-time champ Eddie Krawiec to debut Harley-Davidson Street Rod at NHRA Summernationals
Eddie Krawiec estimates he has made more than 10,000 runs down the dragstrip at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, the site of this weekend’s 48th annual NHRA Summernationals. But the next one the three-time Pro Stock Motorcycle champion makes will surely be one of the most memorable.
Krawiec and longtime teammate Andrew Hines will debut the Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson team’s new Harley-Davidson Street Rod at this weekend’s 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event. A project that started in earnest in January will come to fruition this weekend and Krawiec is thrilled that it is all happening at the track where he grew up racing.
“When I was looking at the calendar and figured the debut would probably fall into Englishtown, it made me excited,” said Krawiec, the current points leader. “It’s exciting moving onto a new platform and going into a completely different motorcycle line. This bike is kind of their wave of the future and to be a part of that is pretty cool. We’re transitioning to a new model after racing with the V-Rod since 2002, and we feel good about bringing it into competition.” Full Story
