Eddie Krawiec – Raceway Park’s Rising Star

Old Bridge Township Raceway Park track official Eddie Krawiec will make his NHRA competition debut aboard his Pro Stock Motorcycle at his home track this weekend at the 35th Annual K&N Filters SuperNationals presented by Strauss Discount Auto.

Growing up just minutes from Raceway Park, watching his dad compete in bracket racing, and driving his street car down the quarter mile at just 17 years old, Eddie always knew drag racing is all he ever wanted to do. He enjoyed success in AMA motocross and drag racing in street cars and motorcycles. While competing in motorcycle eliminators at Raceway Park, he met good friend Del Flores of Del’s Performance Cycles. His association with Del led him to compete in the Prostar motorcycle series.

With much success in the past four seasons with full time support from Orient Express Powersports and Factory Yamaha, Eddie finished in the top five in two different classes with two back to back number two finishes in 600 Super Sport national points. He also became the first rider to put a Yamaha in the 600 SuperSport winners circle at a Prostar event.  He has always had his sights set on his ultimate goal—Pro Stock Motorcycle. He purchased a Pro Stock Bike in 2003 and with the late Brian Schultz aboard, they competed in the 2003 NHRA U.S. Nationals and qualified 16th.

This weekend will be Eddie’s NHRA debut aboard his Suzuki Hayabusa powered by Vance & Hines. The Napp Family and entire staff of Raceway Park are very proud of our hometown hero and wish him much success this weekend. In fact, RacewayPark.com is proud to support Eddie as the title sponsor at the K&N Filters SuperNationals and Orient Express Powersports is an associate sponsor.

Obtaining sponsorship to compete full time in Pro Stock Motorcycle is Eddie’s latest endeavor. With his never give up attitude and desire to succeed, we are certain that sponsorship is just around the corner.
