2014 NHRA: Consistency is not enough for Lucas Oil rider Arana Jr. in Atlanta

2014 NHRA: Consistency is not enough for Lucas Oil rider Arana Jr. in Atlanta

Despite having a consistent weekend at Atlanta Dragway, Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Hector Arana Jr. didn't get the results he wanted during the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Southern Nationals.

After waiting all day to run Sunday, the Lucas Oil Buell was prepped and ready for Monday's eliminations. Unfortunately, when Arana pulled up alongside Angie Smith in the first round, that was as far as the bike would go. A mechanical issue forced Arana to end his day early as he inched down the track.

"Everything felt great on the bike when I pulled up to the starting line for the first round," Arana said. "However, when I popped the clutch, it just didn't go anywhere. It was definitely a mechanical error, so we're going to have to do some digging. Since we don't know exactly what happened yet, we're just going to have to pull it apart to find out."

There's no doubt that Arana is hungry to get back in Victory Lane. After scoring three wins at this point last season, he is more than ready to change his luck and snag a victory soon.

"The track this morning was great, especially after the weather conditions yesterday," Arana said. "We had the bike tuned up to match the new conditions. We were ready to make a really fast pass down the track and move on to the next round. Something happened and there's nothing we can do about it now except move forward and get ready for the next race."

Arana will continue his championship hunt when Pro Stock Motorcycle riders return to the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series tour at the Toyota NHRA Summernationals, May 29-June 1, at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J.
