The 2010 AMA Flat Track season brought nothing but success to Kawasaki. Henry Wiles brought the manufacturer many wins in the Singles class, and Bryan Smith many in the Twins class.
Smith was the first to campaign the Kawasaki Ninja a-650R, and is expected to be a tough competitor in 2011 Flat Track.
It took two days, but the AMA Pro Grand National Singles Championship concluded on Labor Day with a thrilling 25 lap dogfight. Yeoman work by the Illinois Motorcycle Dealers Association, Illinois State Fairgrounds equipment operators and AMA Pro Racing staff got the saturated bull ring short track ready after rain forced the race, which was originally scheduled to be run on Saturday, to be postponed.
Entering the last race, only Kawasaki USA / Jones Brothers Racing / DPC Racing’s No. 17 Henry Wiles and Memphis Shades / Parts Unlimited’s No.
Despite the valiant efforts of the Illinois Motorcycle Dealers Association, AMA Pro Racing and the Illinois State Fairgrounds staff, the final round of the AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Singles Championship was rained out Saturday night. A rain date has been set for Monday, September 7.
Light rain moved into the Springfield area about the time the riders started to unload for the day’s activities and despite a few lulls and a forecast of clearing, Mother Nature won the hard fought battle.
