Sammy Halbert Wins R1 Daytona Short Track, Aaron Yates on Daytona Superbike Pole, AMA Live RR Timing Back Online and FT Live Timing Still Out


Sammy Halbert's #43 Memphis Shades YZ450 Springfield ST Sept. '07



Team Honda's Miguel Duhamel #17 leads Jordan Suzuki's Aaron Yates #20 at Road America Superbike Race 1 in 2008--Yates took the pole at Daytona today for today's and tomorrow's Superbike Doubleheader finals.

In what was a major show of authority, Woody Kyle Racing's Sammy Halbert, National #7 by his virtue of being the overall champ in the GNC series in '09, ran away with round one of the AMA Flat Track Doubleheader last night. Riding a Yamaha YZ450 that was obviously dialed-in, Halbert-former National #43 as shown in the first shot above-ran away and hid from the field to win by two seconds over Henry 'Hammerin' Hank' Wiles on a Kawasaki and 'Jersey' Jake Johnson on a Suzuki. Halbert will go down in history as the inaugaral winner at the new short track facility outside turns one and two at the world famous raceplex.
Thanks to the great folks at and for the official news links as shown here:
Congrats to Sammy for this opening round win and we'll be looking forward to this evening's races to see how things go for him and the rest of the field as they do it all again!
On the road racing side of things, Jordan Suzuki's Double A-ron Yates won the Superbike pole position today beating out early fast man Larry Pegram by a little over .25 seconds. Yates, a long time competitor in the series, also took the honors of garnering the very first superbike pole for the Jordan Brand-sponsored team in it's seventh year of competition in the class. Congrats to Aaron and to the Michael Jordan team for this great result.
Here is the rest of the lineup thanks to Dean Adams and his troupe at
Congrats to Aaron and Team Jordan Suzuki for this great achievement!
The first superbike race is scheduled to roll off the line this afternoon at 3:30 P.M. EST, and as of late this morning, the AMA Live Timing on the road racing side was back up and running. You should be able to follow the race here:
Yesterday's software problems for the AMA Flat Track Live Timing are still up in the air, and we are hoping they do get this issue resolved for this evening's second round at the new Daytona Short Track. As of this writing no live timing is available for the flat track and I have been getting updates from the forum at in order to keep up with what is going on on the track.
Here is the link to last night's post about the problems that they were having with the live timing all day yesterday:
Thanks for coming by, now let's check out that first Superbike race!
