Yamaha Partners With American Flat Track

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – American Flat Track and Yamaha Motor Corp. have announced an official partnership for the remainder of the season.

This partnership comes just two weeks after a historic night for the Atlanta and Southern California-based industry leader.

Yamaha-backed Estenson Racing AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines competitor JD Beach triumphed at the Law Tigers Arizona Super TT presented by RideNow Powersports on April 27 – giving the brand its first AFT Twins win since 1981 and creating buzz around the powerful Yamaha MT-07 DT.

To boot, the Roof Systems AFT Singles presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneyspodium bolstered two Yamaha pilots: the No. 132 of Jesse Janisch and Estenson Racing’s lead AFT Singles rider Ryan Wells, who earned a solid third place finish.

Both competitors rode impressively aboard the lauded Yamaha YZ450F machine.

“Yamaha has occupied a special place in the history of American Flat Track ever since Kenny Robert’s successes in the 1970’s and the near-folklore status of the TZ750 he rode,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. “We are very pleased to welcome Yamaha as an official partner during this period of rapid growth for the series and to coincide with the first win for the brand since the early 1980’s, in our flagship AFT Twins class.”

Fans will recognize Yamaha’s presence at all remaining rounds of the American Flat Track season with signature trackside branding.

“Yamaha’s history with flat track racing makes up a large part of the competitive heritage that exists within our company, and we’ve been working on the details for supporting American Flat Track since the Dixie round earlier this year,” said Steve Nessl, Marketing Manager of Yamaha Motorsports. “The timing of JD Beach’s win on the MT-07 in Arizona two weeks ago couldn’t have been better, and we are really excited to be on board as a sponsor of AFT racing action through the rest of the season.”
