2014 NHRA: Perfecting His Setup, Arana Jr Has Visions Of 2014 U.S. Nationals Win

Leading the efforts for Arana Racing after qualifying, Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Hector Arana Jr. hopes to continue that success by capturing his second Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals Wally.

Laying down his best pass of the weekend early on in qualifying, the Lucas Oil Buell put an impressive 6.906-second run at 194.27 mph up on the leaderboard in Q2. Securing the No. 5 qualifying position, Arana will look to overtake No. 12 qualifier Scotty Pollacheck in round one of final eliminations.

"I feel pretty good for tomorrow's eliminations," Arana said. "We've been going back and forth on the tune-ups all weekend just trying to figure out the right setup for tomorrow.

"We've been hit or miss with our passes in qualifying. We would have a good 60-foot on one run, make a change that we thought it needed according to what the graph showed, and then the bike wouldn't like it. We're just trying to figure out what the happy medium is going to be and go from there for tomorrow."

With already one U.S. Nationals win in 2011 over Jerry Savoie, Arana would love to bring home another one but doesn't want to get ahead of himself. Keeping the weekend goal in perspective, Arana wants to keep the pressure to a minimum.

"I feel the same as I always have when I'm at the racetrack," Arana said. "I try not to look at this race as being a bigger race than any other one we have. If you do that, then you put extra pressure on yourself to be perfect. I really try not to do that to myself. My mindset is to look at it one round at a time. All I can do is try to do my thing and be consistent. If I do that, the round-wins will come my way when it's meant to be."

Arana will be prepared when eliminations start at approximately noon, Monday, with elimination action broadcast live on ESPN2.
