American Flat Track: Tyler Scott Pulling Double Duty In 2022

RoadRacing World - Mon, 2022-02-14 20:55

GOMR Signs Brandon Price and Tyler Scott for ’22

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.  (February 14, 2022) – GOMR (Grumpy Old Men Racing) is excited to announce it has signed Brandon Price to compete in the Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S Cycle class aboard an Indian FTR750 for the 2022 Progressive American Flat Track season.

GOMR – which previously competed as BriggsAuto.com Racing – will continue to be overseen by Johnny and Sarah Goad with mechanical assistance from Tom Draina and Caylee Goad, while Russ and Illene Briggs will provide the resources to back the operation.

Price’s aggressive style and tremendous work ethic – supported by a veteran, savvy tuner in Johnny Goad – promises to make GOMR a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming season.

Price has demonstrated great potential in his first three years in the premier class, highlighted by runner-up Main Event results each season. It seems only a matter of time before the Maryland native smashes down the door and secures a maiden Mission SuperTwins victory.

He finished his rookie season ranked 12th with three top fives, including a second place finish at Williams Grove. Price improved to sixth in 2020 on the strength of five top fives, with a runner-up result in Atlanta. And last season, he ended the year seventh overall with five more top fives, including a second-place near-win at Port Royal.

Price, who previously competed for the Mission Roof Systems team, will continue to be supported by Jerry Stinchfield and Mission Foods in ‘22.

GOMR will also field rising star Tyler Scott in the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER class. Scott – the reigning MotoAmerica Junior Cup champion – will run a limited Progressive AFT schedule in conjunction with his road racing efforts.

Before returning to the States to win the Junior Cup, Scott raced overseas in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and European Talent Cup. Prior to that, he’d established himself as a future flat track ace, earning the AMA Youth Dirt Track Racer of the Year Award on four occasions (2011, 2012, 2016, and 2017) along with 13 AMA Grand Championships at the amateur level.

Scott’s dad, former professional flat track racer Mike Scott, will serve as his builder/tuner, with Davey Loikits rounding out the crew.

BriggsAuto.com will continue in its long-time role as primary sponsor of GOMR with continued help from Martin Trucking. CD Martin is an avid dirt track fan/sponsor and enjoys helping young riders and competes in the vintage racing venue. Buddy and Miriam Pulliam of Precision Body Works will perform all the paint work and serve as a member of the pit crew on a limited basis. In addition to the long-standing sponsors, GOMR would like to thank Jerry Stinchfield and Roof Systems of Dallas, Texas, along with Juan Gonzales of Mission Foods, for their continued support of Brandon Price.

American Flat Track: Rispoli Racing KTM 890 Duke In Production Twins

RoadRacing World - Mon, 2022-02-14 20:36

DAVIDSON, N.C. (February 14, 2022) – Wally Brown Racing is excited to confirm that it has signed James Rispoli to ride for the team for the upcoming 2022 Progressive American Flat Track season.

Last month, WBR announced it was developing a KTM 890 Duke with plans to field it in a limited schedule in the Mission Production Twins presented by Vance & Hines class.

Rispoli earned the 2020 Mission Production Twins championship on the strength of seven wins and four runner-ups and returns to the class following a season competing in the premier Mission SuperTwins category.

The hugely popular Rispoli is a fan favorite on dirt and pavement and on both sides of the Atlantic. Along with his extensive Progressive AFT achievements, the New Hampshire native is a two-time AMA Pro road racing national champion, a British Superbike vet, and a two-time AMA Bonneville Salt Flat Land Speed Record holder.

“James is a great match for us this year,” said WBR team owner Wally Brown. “Testing is a critical part of building this race machine. We sought a rider that understands data and how it fits into a race program. With James’ extensive background in racing, we feel he is going to be a great asset to the team. Not to mention that he is a Production Twins Champion who has proven he can win on the track.”

Rispoli said, “I am really looking forward to working on this new project. After meeting Wally and learning more about his plan for 2022, I knew I wanted to be part of it. With his extensive background in four-wheeled racing, and my varied experiences on two wheels, we should make a great team. It’s going to be a lot of work, but with the support of Wally, and his team I am hopeful we will make great progress in a short period of time.”

Development is well underway of the Wally Brown Racing KTM 890 Duke with plans to debut at the Mission Red Mile I & II.

Brown said, “We plan to finish up the test bike and put it through the paces next month. The team is excited to see what James can do with it. Putting in test laps will be critical to completing our final product.”

Japanese Superbike: Watanabe Signs With Yoshimura Suzuki

RoadRacing World - Mon, 2022-02-14 17:54

KAZUKI WATANABE TO RACE 2022 ALL JAPAN SUPERBIKES

Kazuki Watanabe will race in the 2022 All Japan Road Race Championship JSB1000 with the Yoshimura Suzuki Ride Win team.

Watanabe, who was part of the Yoshimura SERT Motul Endurance World Championship team in 2021, will race the GSX-R1000R under the Team Directorship of Yohei Kato and with Yukio Kagayama as Team Manager.

Yohei Kato – Team Director:

“I am very pleased to announce that I will participate fully with Kazuki Watanabe in the 2022 All Japan Road Race Championship JSB1000. From the second half of last year I received an enthusiastic request from him for the All-Japan Championship and I thought about how I could fulfil this hope.

“In addition to Yoshimura SERT Motul, which is the Endurance World Championship team for Yoshimura Japan, we will launch the All Japan Championship participation team Yoshimura Suzuki Ride Win with Yukio Kagayama, who has built up a relationship of trust mainly in the race scene for many years.

“We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all of our supporters for their understanding and cooperation and with regards to JSB1000, we will entrust all our power to the new Kagayama Team Manager and liven up the All Japan Championship with our rival teams with the goal of making Kazuki Watanabe the champion.”

Yukio Kagayama – Team Manager:

“I am very happy to be the Team Manager of Yoshimura Suzuki Ride win. Since competing as a rider in 2003, Yoshimura has literally been a joyful experience. Through that long history, I think we have built a relationship of trust with Yoshimura.
I will do my best to work as a team manager as the next stage, and I would like to see the fans enjoy and produce memorable results.

“First of all, we will challenge the All Japan Road Race JSB1000 at Yoshimura in order to create the best team environment with rider Kazuki Watanabe and aim for the best race results by making use of our experience at Team Kagayama.”

Kazuki Watanabe:

“We have decided to participate in the JSB1000 All Japan Road Race Championship for the first time in three years and I am already excited to wait for the season as a rider of a new team where two major domestic Suzuki teams, Yoshimura Japan and Team Kagayama, are very happy to be able to run on the stage of the highest peak in Japan.

“Last year, with machine development as the main goal, the potential of the machine was proven by winning the 2021 EWC Endurance World Championship, and if you have the sensitivity, knowledge, experience and team power as a development rider of the machine, I think that you can see not only the championship but also the moment of winning the championship in All Japan.”

American Flat Track: All Classes Will Compete At 2022 Springfield Mile

RoadRacing World - Mon, 2022-02-14 17:12

All Progressive American Flat Track Classes Slated for Springfield Mile Doubleheader on Labor Day Weekend

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Progressive American Flat Track is excited to announce that, for the first time in nearly a decade, Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER will compete alongside the Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S and Mission Production Twins presented by Vance & Hines classes at the “World’s Fastest Mile” when the series arrives at the Illinois State Fairgrounds for the Springfield Mile I & II on September 3-4.

The Springfield Mile represents the crown jewel of the annual Progressive AFT calendar. That distinction has been earned not just by its long history and packed grandstands, but also by the incredible nature of the racing it reliably produces. Many of the most memorable races in series history have taken place at the Springfield Mile since the historic race was first held in 1937, including strategic showdowns, come-from-behind shockers, and underdog upsets. The return of the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles class, which is renowned for its spectacular action, should only add to that record.

This year marks the start of a new era for another reason as well, as Kiesow Racing and the Illinois Motorcycle Dealers Association (IMDA) have passed the torch to Mees Promotions following four successful decades promoting the legendary race.
