American Flat Track Primed For First Arizona Super TT

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The American Flat Track title contenders will jump right back into the fight this weekend as the series arrives at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Ariz., for the Law Tigers Arizona Super TT presented by RideNow Powersports on Saturday.

The Super TT earns its title with a layout primed for drama – featuring multiple jumps and a variety of right- and left-hand corners – and a primetime schedule with the main events set to be contested at night under the Musco lights.

Reigning AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines champ Jared Mees comes in fresh off his victory in the Texas Half-Mile and eager to build up the sort of crushing momentum he rode to back-to-back titles in 2017 and 2018. While he may have originally made his name on the half miles, he’s proven to be a threat at the TTs in recent seasons as well, scoring two wins and two runner-ups in the discipline since ‘17.

However, current points leader Briar Bauman is similarly accomplished, scoring a pair of TT wins, a second, and a third over that same time span.

No one in the history of the sport can rival the career TT record of Henry Wiles, who boasts a remarkable 19 career TT Main Event triumphs.

Two other riders to keep close tabs on are Estenson teammates Jake Johnson and J.D. Beach. The race is set near Estenson’s headquarters and the venue was a popular test locale for the team prior to the end of the track testing window for the 2019 season. Beyond that, Johnson is a five-time TT winner himself, while Beach has demonstrated mammoth potential on TT circuits where his roadracing chops serve him exceptionally well.

Meanwhile, in Roof Systems AFT Singles presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneysaction, the early-season title leaders are expected to resume their battle up front. The top four riders in the points – Atlanta Short Track winner Dalton Gauthier, Texas Half-Mile runner-up Mikey Rush, Daytona TT winner Jesse Janisch and reigning class champion Dan Bromley – are all established TT standouts.

Last weekend’s top performer – Shayna Texter – looks for another chance to exhibit her extensive off-season TT training in hopes of solidifying her position in the championship hunt.

That Estenson home-track advantage could come into play on the undercard with 2016 AFT Singles champion Ryan Wells being well motivated to get his title campaign on track.

History has repeatedly shown that TT’s play to the strengths of series part-timers with versatile skill sets developed in other forms of motorsports. Don’t overlook the chances of legends Ryan Sipes and Jeff Ward.
