Krawiec Wins Toyo Tires Nationals at Reading


Filed under Articles

Eddie Krawiec, racing on his Screamin Eagle/Vance & Hines V-ROD, defeated Michael Phillips’ MPR & Damn Sport Suzuki in the final round to win the Toyo Tires Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway in Reading, PA. Phillips final round appearance was hampered when he shut down early. Michael Phillips damaged his in engine in the semi-final round against Bailey Whitaker, and borrowed Steve Johnson’s engine to race in the final.

Krawiec also cemented his 3rd place spot in the Ringers Gloves Pro Bike Battle points standings. Krawiec will face off against 6th place Craig Treble in the Pro Bike Battle September 5th at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals at Indianapolis.

Krawiec secured the top spot in the Countdown to One during a race weekend that NHRA thought would never end. Race qualifying ended prematurely on Friday due to rain. On Saturday, qualifying resumed, only to be stopped for water seepage at the far end of the track. The Safety Safari and track worked clean and dry the track so that qualifying could continue. Saturday’s qualifying sessions ended early as the rain began to fall during the third round of PSM qualifying. Sunday’s final eliminations were plagued with major delays due to the water seepage issue again. Maple Grove Raceway issued a formal apology to fans and racers for the delays due to water seepage, as well as announcing plans to repair the track to prevent a recurrence.
