Henry Wiles on the #17 Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati 'L' twin leads Rob Pearson on the #27 Eaken/Roeder Racing H-D XR750 during one of the qualifying sessions at the Indy Mile during round 10 of the 2012 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season on August 18.
Wiles qualified 11th and Pearson in the 14th-place spot out of the 47 riders who took a qualifying time during the event held in conjunction with the Indiana State Fair. Both had some of their best finishes of the year later that night, with Wiles coming home in the 4th-place spot, and Pearson in the 7th-place spot, after jumping off of the Eaken/Roeder/Ford XR and riding the Eaken Racing/Dick Ford Kawasaki in the 25-lap National main.
The 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles Grand National Championship season was just extended to 15 events today, as AMA Pro Flat Track announced the addition of the Colonial Downs Mile to the schedule on August 24. The track, primarily a horse racing facility, measures in at just over a mile and should make for some exciting racing for the east coast crowd.
With Wiles returning to the LBM team for the 2013 Twins Series schedule, and Pearson riding for the Weirbach Racing team this season (and debuting the team's new Kawasaki 650R Twins mount this year) the new event on the schedule should make a nice venue for the big bikes to get out and breath!
Thanks to AMA Pro Flat Track for the press release below, where you can check out the particulars on the event and see where to get your tickets for what will be round 12 of the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles Grand National Championship season.
