These pewter Wallys are really cool. Eddie (Krawiec, teammate) won his at Gainesville and I told him I didn’t want to touch it until I got one of my own.“I didn’t expect to win mine this fast, but I am glad to get it. My brother Matt (Hines, crew chief) gave me a great motorcycle all weekend long and it was consistent and going perfectly straight down the track.”Krawiec kept the points lead in the two-wheel class with his semifinal finish, and sits 18 ahead of Hines.The NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series continues May 13-15 with the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta Dragway.Baytown, Texas, Pro Stock Motorcycle Spring Nationals Results:
