Another great race. Carver took full advantage of the restart.

So great to see Carver win Friday night. He's one of a kind for sure. The Singles race was savage.

Championship week. Bauman has just a nine point lead on Mees headed in the seaon-ending double header on the Daytona Short Track. Going to be wild watching all those big twins on that slippery little track. I'm expecting about 15 block passes per lap.

Production twins. RE wins Jonny Lewis gets it done.

Texter tried but was too late, and loses the Championship.

Fantastic to see Lewis win a Main for Royal Enfield. Great ride by Cose with those breathing down his neck.

Brandon Robinson hustling a big twin to victory around that short track with a broken leg is legend stuff.

Briar Bauman has a 14 point lead over Mees heading into the last race of the season. Mees will be pulling out all the stops.

Back-to-back championships for Briar Bauman. Fun track for the SuperTwins race before the narrow groove got laid down. Another podium for the Royal Enfield in Production Twins.

Legendary tuner, team owner and racer Babe DeMay passed away earlier this week. RIP.

His most recent success was the fledgling Yamaha MT-07 effort with Dominic Colindres. DC66 won a heat in the top class in his rookie year on the Yamaha Twin and I believe he had a 4th place finish in an Expert Twins National in Delaware that season with the team skating by on a shoestring budget.

He touched a lot of lives with his work for Harley.

88 is a good run.

Dusting off the FT thread with some news.

The Sacramento Mile will be a double header running the full program for all classes on both Friday and Saturday nights, May 7-8, 2021. Good news that we can expect mild temperatures but I'm a bit concerned because the first weekend in May historically can be a crazy weekend weather in Northern California. No matter, I'm just super buzzed about having the back-to-back Mile races.

In other news, Dunlop has been running a tire test this week with several AFT regulars at Volusia Speedway in Florida. The test provides a sneak peak at some rider line-up changes for 2021. With Harley Davidson pulling back from direct support, the Vance & Hines SuperTwins team appears to just be Dalton Gauthier next year. Former V&H HD racer Jarod Vanderkooi will race an FTR750 with support from Roof Systems of Dallas.

While Mees, Halbert, Robinson, and Briar Bauman are all testing with their same teams from last year, Bronson Bauman is notably absent. JD Beach is testing the Estenson Yamaha which should benefit from a rule change allowing production based engines in SuperTwins to run wheel speed sensors; another way of saying they may be able to use some form of traction control.

Traction control in FT??

I don't think I am a fan.

Good news on Sac!

I'm not too happy about complicated electronic aids but I'm willing to wait and see how it develops. The Yamahas are at the back of the pack everywhere but the TTs and the good TT results are all due to the rider. I just know Beach would be up front on an Indian so it really sucks to see him struggling to finish 15th on the Yamaha.
