Briar Bauman works on getting the #10Z Rod Lake Racing/Browns Cycle/Russo Construction/Arai-sponsored Honda CRF450R dialed in for round 12 of the 2012 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season at the Springfield Short Track on September 15, in preparation for the evening's 25-lap National main held at the Illinois State Fairgrounds Multipurpose Arena.
The 2012 Rookie of the Year headed to Daytona last month with his new team, the Babe DeMay Yamaha/Memphis Shades squad, and suffered from a serious case of the sophomore blues in rounds 1 & 2 of the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles Grand National Championship season. But like all champions in the making, he will surely shrug it off by the time round 3 hits the half-mile confines in Stockton, CA. come May 11, and with his new team and soon-to-be-new stable of Yamaha twins will be working his way back to the top before we all know it.
Bauman got a chance to spend some down-time with some of his flat tracking friends after Daytona, and talks about it in his latest update below.
Check it out, thanks to Tyler Porter/Fight for Dirt Track.com and the Babe DeMay Yamaha/Memphis Shades team!
