The Pro Stock Motorcycle drag racing season wrapped up last weekend with another win for the Harley-Davidson/Vance & Hines team at the track in Pomona, California. Team rider Andrew Hines won the final event for his sixth victory of 2012, narrowly defeating his teammate Ed Krawiec.
Krawiec walked away with the championship, however, clinching the title early on by qualifying for the later elimination rounds. This marks Krawiec’s second consecutive championship and his third in six years in Pro Stock motorsports racing, Motorsport.com reports. He ends the season more than 80 points ahead of the second-place Hines, with Buell rider Hector Arana Jr. in a distant third.
“This has been such a great season,” said Krawiec. “When I reflect on the way it went, to make 11 final rounds and get nine wins, and have the H-D team win 13 in a row, it’s really unbelievable. And there’s the highlight of getting a win at home in Englishtown, the biggest win of all for me.”
The Harley-Davidson team ended the season with wins in 15 of the 16 events, dominating the competition throughout 2012 behind strong performances from Krawiec and Hines.
