2014 NHRA: Arana Motivated For Solid Performance In Norwalk

2014 NHRA: Arana Motivated For Solid Performance In Norwalk

ProtectTheHarvest.com/MAVTV rider Adam Arana knows he has the potential to win NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle races, and he is more motivated than ever to get a victory.

Last weekend in Chicago, Arana watched as his brother Hector Jr. beat his father Hector Sr. in the final round a day after Adam failed to qualify for the race due to a myriad of issues.

But Arana is pumped up about racing in the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals this weekend at Summit Motorsports Park.

"It was really disappointing that I didn't qualify in Chicago," Arana said. "We didn't get the opportunity to test before Norwalk, but we got together as a team and have some good ideas based on my dad and my brother's performance in Chicago. Hopefully, we can go from there and improve."

The DNQ in Chicago was Arana's first of his career after making 21 consecutive races, including all during his rookie season. Not even Hector Jr., the 2011 NHRA rookie of the year, could claim the same statistic.

"It's definitely given me the motivation that I need to go out there and kick some butt," Arana said. "Sitting out on race day and not wearing my leathers was all the motivation I need to go to Norwalk and do better."

Arana has battled getting the right clutch tune-up for a good 60-foot time, a number crucial to a good pass on a Pro Stock Motorcycle. The entire team has worked this week to improve Adam's numbers, and Arana knows he has the same capability as his dad and brother.

"I know these things aren't given to you," Arana said. "You have to work really hard to achieve even a qualifying position to get the opportunity to race. It's given me a motivation boost coming into this weekend's race, especially seeing my brother and dad do so well.

"I know I have the same capabilities to do well. We just need to get my bike to where it's capable of doing the same thing."

Qualifying for the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals will be held at 4:45 and 7:15 p.m., Friday and Saturday, and eliminations begin at noon, Sunday. ESPN2 will carry all qualifying and elimination action.
