AMA Pro Flat Track Sacramento Mile Round Set for May 21; Can Bryan Smith Make it Six In-a-Row?

Bryan Smith has owned the Sacramento Mile round of the AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines series since his string of wins started during the 2011 season aboard his and his father Barry's Moroney's H-D XR750.

Since that time and with the help of his Howerton Motorsports Kawasaki and main team members Ricky Howerton, Jeff Gordon and Dink Glidden he has all but owned the Cal-Expo event in California and looks to add to his legend on the left coast in just four short weeks as the series heads to round 5 of the 2016 season on Saturday, May 21 just one week after the next round on the calendar and the series newest venue at the Law Tigers Arizona Mile.

Winning five series races in-a-row is a testament to itself for Flyin' Bryan and the team, but to be able to put together a sixth win at the Sacto Mile would be quite a feat!

In the shot above, Smith and team owner Howerton look over the #42 Crosley Brands/Howerton Motorsports/Villa-Esparza-sponsored Kawasaki rocket after taking the win in heat race #2 at the Springfield Mile II during round 11 of the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines series on September 6. Smith went on to take the win on the day at the Illinois State Fairgrounds to win his second race of the year at Springfield and his fourth mile win of the season.

With the series getting ready to amp up it's schedule in just three short weeks, check out the press release below for all of the info you will need in order to attend what will definitely be a race to be at for the Sacramento Mile on Saturday, May 21. If you are in the area you don't want to miss what will be another great day of racing at the Sacto Mile!
