Langdon, Force, Edwards & Arana Set Pace

In Pro Stock Motorcycle, Arana Jr. made a big move to the top of the order by racing to a performance of 6.837 at 195.51 on his Lucas Oil Buell.

“Everything is coming together,” said Arana. “We have several good motors together, and we’re relaxed and having a lot of fun. It’s our goal to [qualify No. 1], and hopefully we can accomplish it this weekend. Tomorrow, the weather is supposed to cool down a little more, so I look forward to getting back out there and seeing what we can do.”

Scotty Pollacheck qualified second on his Buell with a 6.874 at 194.18 and Adam Arana, who led on Thursday, dropped to third on his ProtectTheHarvest.com Buell with a 6.888 at 195.28. Matt Smith, who sits at 17th after two sessions, already claimed the championship in the two-wheel category at the season’s penultimate race in Las Vegas.

Qualifying continues Saturday at 11:45 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. and eliminations are scheduled for Sunday at 11 a.m.
