Andrew Hines raced to the top of the category during the fourth qualifying session securing a national time record of 6.720 at 199.94 on his Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson.
“You always want to win the first race of the year but this one was special,” Hines said. “I’ve been fortunate to win a few of these milestone races and this Wally is a nice addition to that collection. When you add that I haven’t won a race in more than a year that makes this win extra-special. It will help keep me motivated throughout the year.”
Hines maintained that lead all the way to the final round, where he defeated his Vance & Hines teammate, Eddie Krawiec. Hines was ahead by a fender at the finish line, winning with a 6.752 elapsed time to Krawiec’s 6.762.
