Davis Fisher #67m Winner Pomona Half Mile National AMA Pro Singles

Davis Fisher led flag to flag in a determined effort to win the Pro Singles No.1 Plate. It wasn't to be as he ended up one point behind the new Number One,Kyle Johnson #77J. Davis rode incredibly well throughout the whole season and came on really strong in the later half, including two stunning wins at Calistoga and Pomona. Riding his TJ Burnett Farms, Bob Lanphere's Beaverton Motorcycles, Honda CRF 450R he proved he is a major contender in the AMA Flat Track ranks. This young man has got what it takes to be a Super Star in the Greatest Show on Earth

Pomona Half Mile Winner Bryan Smith

Bryan Smith came to Pomona and did everything he could have done to win the Championship. He dominated on the track. No one came close, winning the final race of the year by a huge margin over Jake Johnson and Brad Baker. Yet, he came up short on his Championship bid and ended up three points shy of Jared Mees, who took the No.1 Plate by finishing 4th. After a long season filled with great victories and WTF moments, Bryan has got to be planning his 2015 season with some valuable lessons under his belt. What an effort by the whole Villa-Esparza,Crosley Radios, Howerton Racing Team. The Kawasaki proved ultra fast and reliable , good on all kinds of tracks and Bryan rode the wheels off it every time he threw his leg over it. The Mega Mile was testimony to Smiths skills and determination and Pomona was the exclamation point on their attack to dominate and grab the No.1 Plate in 2015.

SCFTA Perris "Night before the National"

Round 10 "The night before the National" So Cal Flat Track Assoc drew riders from all over the country and provided exciting racing throughout all the classes, from the Kids to the Pros. The afternoon was a pleasant 85F that turned into perfect racing conditions when the sun went down.There was a big turnout of Pros gunning for the $6000 purse and the Main was exciting with great racing even though it was dominated by Jeff Carver, National #23 on his Carver's BBQ Honda 450. For a guy who doesn't race Perris very often at all ,he showed the regulars ,with lots of experience on the little track,how to get around it with perfect lines and blazing speed. Nice job Jeff !, that was something to see. Kayl Kolkman held his own for second place with a very determined National No.1, Brad Baker hot on his heels in third. 4th Jimmy Wood, 5th Brandon Robinson,6th Mike Rush,7th Bugs Pearson,8th Justin Jones, 9th Scott Baker and 10th local hot shoe Nick Gil.
Jeff Carver had Perris wired and looked great out front and flying.
Local Star and many time Perris Pro Winner, Kayl Kolkman.
National # 1, Brad Baker was putting on a Flat Track show but had his hands full with Kolkman and Carver.Watching him try every thing in the book to get by Kayl is what good clean aggressive racing is all about.
