Matt Smith

Matt Smith secured his first pole of the season, but slowed in the final Pro Stock Motorcycle qualifying session of the weekend. Eddie Krawiec ran quickest, earning himself three points, and moved into the 6.80s. He's just .009 second behind Smith and .004 behind Hector Arana Jr. as we get ready for race day at the Denso Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals. 

The final session set the 16-bike field and left Scotty Pollacheck, Jianna Salinas and Katie Sullivan on the outside. Kelly Clontz and Joey Gladstone fought their way in with 7-second runs, while Angelle Sampey made the field on the bump spot for the first time in her career. 

Sampey is one of the headliners in an incredibly difficult quad. She will race Matt Smith, Angie Smith and Ryan Oehler. That's three EBR-bodied machines racing against a Harley-Davidson.

Matt Smith vs. Angie Smith vs. Ryan Oehler vs. Angelle Sampey;
