The Screamin' Eagle
Nitro Harleys were in attendance at the
O'Reilly Fall Nationals, showing the NHRA
crowd the sharp distinction between Nitro
Harleys and Pro Stock Bikes.
Nine bikes tried
for the eight spots, meaning one team
would just be SOL. For the first day of
qualifying, that team was Griz Robinson's,
but they fought back on Saturday and bumped
out Steve Ruggiero. Unfortunately, Robinson's
bike broke in Round 1.
was the No. 1 qualifier with a 6.466 at
2002 Harley was in the bump spot, but
never had a chance, coming up against
Vancil in the first round.
