U.S. Nationals Weekend Is An Overall Productive Time For Arana

Improving with every pass he made throughout the weekend, Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Adam Arana continued his success of solid passes right into the first round of eliminations at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway.

Making its best pass down the track of the entire event, the ProtectTheHarvest.com/MAVTV Buell put down a 6.943-second pass at 193.77 mph in the first round of final eliminations Monday. Unfortunately, Arana's reaction time of .088 had him chasing Matt Smith down the lanes the entire pass, coming up just short of advancing to the next round.

"I'm disappointed that we went out in the first round but who wouldn't be," Arana said. "The bike drifted towards the right, which didn't help my speed at all. Because of that we're going to make changes to the wheelie bar to make sure that it tracks straight."

While the youngest Arana is frustrated by his early exit at this year's U.S. Nationals, he knows that major gains were made this weekend that will help him at the remaining races of the season. Continually fighting setup issues this year, it finally looks like most of those hindrances have been solved.

"I can't be too mad though; we made a lot of progress this weekend. The motor is finally coming around both in horsepower and setup-wise. It's finally sealing up the way it needs to."

"Hopefully, these improvements will carry over to Charlotte (N.C.) so we can try to get a better qualifying spot. The goal is to be in the top half of the field after qualifying so we have leverage going into the first round.

Arana will continue to look for his first career Pro Stock Motorcycle win when he heads to Charlotte, N.C., Sept. 12-14, for the next race on the circuit.
