    I have the feeling that a lot more PRO TWINS will show up at Springfield this year. They are a better fit for a mile than a 450 and there are a lot of good engines available for reasonable prices. This was a great AMA idea. It lets riders get a feel for a bigger , heavier bike on the fast tracks. Now, if we can only get Springfield dried out and NOT RAINING this year we will see if I am correct!

    That is exactly why I bought a spare Triumph twin, when I found one SUPER cheap. I have had the honor of turning wrenches for Bill Gately at the last two Knoxville events, and will do so again this year. Bill and I have talked about my want to build a Triumph Pro Twins engine. Now it is just down to collecting parts...

    Baker is listed on the entry list. He mentioned on Twitter that he had been back on a bike and practicing several weeks ago.

    Brad Baker will ride Springfield. He was in Az for 10 days working with Evo Fitnes , They work with NFL ,NBA , MLB as well as other athletes for rehab and fitness training.
    We were able to rent a local track for Brad to get in some laps before he flew out to Springfield... He looks very fit, strong and determined to win as many races this year as possible...

    I watched both nights of the Daytona short track rounds live streaming on Fans ChoiceTV. It worked great for me. It was great to see everything (heats, semis, LCQ, mains) for both classes and all the podiums. IMO, the Flat Track races had better quality production than the road races from Daytona

    You can watch some or all of the Daytona races on YouTube.

    Looking forward to watching the streaming tomorrow.

    Does anyone have a schedule of any flat track racing that might be going on tonight in Springfield. Amature races maybe?
