Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire Electric Motorcycle lit up the drag strip during The National Hod Rod Association’s 66th Annual Denso Spark Plugs U.S. Nationals. Drag racers and fans from across the globe made their way to the Lucas Oil Raceway in Hendricks County, Indiana for the annual event on Sept 3-6, 2020.

For the event to take place during the COVID-19 pandemic, several changes and safety measures had to be put in place. The U.S. Nationals condensed the schedule by starting one day late and ending one day early and eliminated the Labor Day Championship race. Attendees had to adhere to the CDC guidelines by keeping a social distance of six feet apart, wearing masks, and submit to a temperature check upon entering the races.

Despite the condensed schedule, Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire electric motorcycle made its way to the strip. Andrew Hines, Eddie Krawiec, and Angelle Sampey gave drag fans a look at the all new electric motorcycle. Harley’s LiveWire accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and 60 to 80 mph in 1.9 seconds. It does take some adjusting to get used to riding since it requires no clutch and no gear shifting. Check out the LiveWire highlights from the event in the video below.
