2014 NHRA: Looking For A Little Luck, Arana Continues To Make Improvements In Sonoma

2014 NHRA: Looking For A Little Luck, Arana Continues To Make Improvements In Sonoma

Looking for redemption after an early exit in Denver last weekend, Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Adam Arana continued to work out the initial kinks of using a new motor during both days of qualifying for the NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway.

Qualifying started off slow for the youngest Arana, but in his last attempt in Q4 the ProtectTheHarvest.com/MAVTV Buell rider pulled out his fastest pass of the weekend, a 6.921 at 194.07 mph, to move up the Pro Stock Motorcycle ladder.

"The new motor is running better than what we had in Denver but still not quite up to par for my standards," Arana said. "It's all about finding that right balance between the bike setup and the rider's style of riding. We just haven't found that right pairing yet, but we will make a tune-up for tomorrow's eliminations and I know we will run better."

After posting a Q4 pass that catapulted him to No. 13, Arana will see No. 4 qualifier Scotty Pollacheck in the first round of final eliminations. However, Arana hopes that his Buell will be matched up against other riders in more rounds to come Sunday.

"Scott is a great guy but I'm going to try my best to send him home in the first round," Arana said. "The numbers may not reflect it but I know I'm capable of more. I'm going to keep the mentality I've had all season long and go into the first round expecting to do my best and hopefully turn on the win light afterwards. There's nothing more I can do; hopefully it's enough."

Arana will look to turn his luck around when eliminations begin at noon, Sunday. ESPN2 will carry all of the final elimination action.
