AMA Flat Track: Steve Nace DuQuoin Indoor Series Hosts Round 3 on December 10

Jeffrey Carver, Jr. takes the inside line on his #23 Van's Yamaha/Stevens Racing/Yamaha Motor Corp/GYTR-sponsored Yamaha YZ450F during the Dash for Cash event at the Springfield Short Track, round 15 of the 2011 AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship Series on September 3.  Defending AMA Grand National Champion (and soon to repeat) Jake Johnson holds a tight line on the #1 Zanotti Racing/Schaeffer's H-D/Boughner Racing/Motion Pro-sponsored Honda CRF450R while racing the first year rookie Expert in the four lap Dash.

Carver would go on to take the win over Johnson, for his first-ever win in a Dash event, which was his second appearance of the year in the extra points and cash-paying event (the '10 AMA Pro Flat Track Pro Singles Champion also made the Dash at Lake Odessa in the Twins Series, and brought home a 3rd place finish at the I-96 Speedway event.)  Carver was on fire all night, qualifying in the top 5, winning his heat and coming home 3rd in the 25-lap National main event behind winner Henry Wiles and Johnson.

Carver has been spending the off-season competing in the Steve Nace Racing 2012 AMA Indoor National Dirt Track Series at DuQuoin, IL. and carded a handful of 2nd place finishes over the course of the round 2 event held just after Thanksgiving.  Running in the Open Pro and 450cc Pro main events, Carver was able to hold off a strong field of riders including new Weirbach Racing Pro Singles signee Ryan Wells, returning-to-the-track JR Schnabel on a Travis Smith Suzuki, and former AMA Grand National competitor and Clermont, IN. resident, Dan Ingram.  Carver wasn't able to hold off JD Beach over the weekend, however, as JD was on a roll in winning the three short track events and the TT Pro main, where Jeffrey dropped to 3rd place behind JD and Pro Singles rider Levi Mayer.

Round 3 at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds' Southern Illinois Center is scheduled for this Saturday, December 10.
