Harley drag racer?

Yep, watching drag racing on TV and just saw history being made. The first Harley to win a NHRA Pro Stock Bike round. Vance & Hines spent 2 years of development just to qualify this thing but it finally got a win light.

BTW There's not a single Harley part on it

The Harley won 2 rounds actually. First round Andrew Hines cut a 0.017 light to Collis' 0.157 for the win (Hines ran 7.368, Collis ran 7.339). Second round Craig Treble redlighted against Hines. Third round Geno Scali knocked it out. I think it's kinda cool to see a Harley in Pro Stock, could get a whole different bunch of people interested in PSB which is not a bad thing and it's nice to see it have a decent weekend for once. They've put a lot of work into that bike to just have it fail most of the time, maybe they're starting to get it figured out.
