January 13, 2013 - Milwaukee, WI –
After our best season yet, I have decided to make the move to the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Motorcycle-Superstore.com and Lucas Oil, to race both the expert singles and twins events in 2013. Our season was cut short in 2012, but we were still able to come out with great results. Out of the 36 races we attended this season, we won 9 of them and were in the top 5 in 28 of these races. We were leading the AMA All Star National Championship and we were running 9th on our way to the top of the AMA Pro Singles Flat Track Championship before I was injured at the Peoria TT.
NEWS RELEASE FROM THE
NATIONAL MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM,
The most all-American form of motorcycle racing is no doubt dirt track. Born on horse racing tracks a century ago, man and machine still duel it out to this day for the podium finish. But from 1954 to 1985, winning the GNC called for extreme talent. These were the glory days when riders had to be masters of the Mile, half-mile, the short track and TT but also earn road racing points to lock up the Grand National Championship. The Dirt Track Heroes exhibit will focus on this period but also cover dynamic bikes and riders up into the 1990's.
