Toni Elias, runner up at last years Superprestigio, tried Flat Tracking So Cal style at both the "Night before the National" at SCFTA Perris Short Track and then the next day at the AFT" Perris Half Mile National". Great to see him at both events and see him so competitive in what was his debut into the real world of Americas Sideways Circus.
Teenager Oli Brindley completed his first full season in American Flat Track at the Perris Half Mile National. The young Brit put on a great ride to finish 6th. Oli's got it and should go on to great things if he stays Stateside and continues his pursuit of the Singles No.1 Plate. He and his Dad have done an incredible job following the circuit in our big, strange land and they have really made a place for themselves in AFT.
Oli gasses it down the back straight, in practice at Perris.
High noon in the Californian desert as #52 Shayna Texter and Kolby Carlile face off for the Singles Championship. It was a long shot for the diminutive Ms. Texter but as usual she was super fast and had a shot at it on the exciting Perris Half Mile.
Carlile rode a strong race and a third gave him the No.1 plate over Texter who ended up 3rd in the championship.
What a season for this young lady ! Lets hope 2018 is good to her and she gets the plate.
Texter rolls out to the track while Brandon Price #92, three time winner this year and runner-up in the Championship, put in a very strong ride to come from mid pack to win the Perris National. Ben Lowe #20 ended his season with a great 2nd place at Perris.
Jordan Barber smoked 'em all on an S & S Hooligan Harley Sportster 1200. These old dogs are not easy to ride but Jordan made it look spectacular in a very competitive class, that includes Indian Scouts , Triumph Bonnevilles, Ducati Scramblers and new Harley 750s. The season champ will receive a new FTR Indian Factory racer. Thats some incentive for sure ( $50K) . The last race is this weekend on a man made dirt track in the parking lot of Bolsa Chica Beach , Orange County, California.
