AMA Pro Flat Track: Gerit Callies Looks Set to Return to the Track in the AMA Pro Singles Championship at Daytona
Gerit Callies is seen signing autographs for the fans at round 5 of the 2012 AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Motorcycle-Superstore.com season at the Lima Half-Mile on June 30, during the fan walk festivities at the Allen County Fairgrounds in between the on-track action.
Callies and his #76L Fun Mart Cycles/Rod Lake/Power Brokers/Gillespie-sponsored KTM 450SX-F team had a solid 12-point lead in the 2012 AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com Pro Singles Series Championship heading into round 9 of the season at the Peoria TT (having won three events on the season), before being involved in one of the nastiest-looking crashes of the season during the Pro Singles main event. Due to injuries suffered in that devasting bang-up, the South Dakota resident missed the remaining 11 rounds of the season and slipped to 8th-place in the final year-end tally.
However, great news came out of the Callies' and AMA Pro Flat Track camps yesterday in that he looks to be ready to return to action in next month's season-openers at the Daytona Short Track.
