Hector Arana Jr.

Hector Arana Jr. will go to bed as the No. 1 qualifier in Pro Stock Motorcycle. The rider of the Lucas Oil EBR ran the only 6.80 of the day (a 6.884 to be exact), and that's enough to get him a step ahead of the competition. 

The competition? That starts with defending champion Matt Smith, who bettered his time from the first qualifying session with a 6.911. That means he only moved back to the No. 2 spot, just ahead of the Harley-Davidson riders. Eddie Krawiec and Andrew Hines moved to third and fourth (6.919 and 6.947), while Karen Stoffer rounds out the top five. 

Ryan Oehler made a big move with a new motor in his EBR-bodied machine. He threw the rods out of his engine in the first qualifying session, but bounced back in Q2 by running a 6.98. That took him from the outside of the field to the No. 6 spot. The bump belongs to rookie Jianna Salinas, who ran a 7.097.
