In testing for the upcoming NHRA Gatornationals, Screamin' Eagle/Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson racer Eddie Krawiec fired a warning shot when he became the first Pro Stock rider to eclipse the 200mph mark. The historic lap of 6.771-seconds at 200.08mph, recorded during a test session at South Georgia Motorsports Park on March 5, also ecliped the current elapsed time record held by Hector Arana (6.777). The runs are unofficial and therefore not applicable to the NHRA record books.
Krawiec is the defending NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle champion as well as the official speed record holder (199.26 mph). Watch for Krawiec and the rest of the Pro Stock division make its debut at this weekend's NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville, FL this weekend (March 8-11).
