Kenny Coolbeth Wins AMA Flat Track Minnesota Mile and Jake Johnson Takes Over the Points Lead


Kenny Coolbeth, Jr.'s #2 Screamin Eagle/Harley Davidson Motor Co/Arai/Fox-backed factory XR sits ready for action with a team tech just before introductions of the main event at the Springfield Mile on Sunday, September 5th. The King of Cool put it to them tonight at Canterbury Park to take his first win of the season, and his first since he won the Lucas Oil Indy Mile in August of 2009. He also moved up to 5th in the hunt for the overall AMA Pro Flat Track Championship standings with 231 points, 34 behind new series leader Jake Johnson.

Kenny Coolbeth, Jr. took his first win of the season tonight at the Minnesota Mile at the Canterbury Park horse track in round 15 of the AMA Pro Flat Track K&N Filters presented by Motorcycle Grand National Championship Series. Taking the lead from early leader Jake Johnson on the #5 Zanotti Racing XR on lap 15, the King of Cool went on to win over Jersey Jake by 3.373 seconds.

With Johnson's 2nd place finish, and Joe Kopp on the #3 Ducati only managing a 16th place finish, Jake is the new leader in the overall championship standings over Kopp, 265-255. Jared Mees came home 3rd on the evening, and rounds out the top 3 in the standings with 246 points heading into round 16 next weekend at the Sprint Car Capital of the World in Knoxville, IA.

We will have more on the race and the race to the championship after the weekend is over. You can check out race results and new point standings below. This thing is getting great! Don't go away whatever you do!
