The much-anticipated debut in American Flat Track’s AFT Singles class of top amateur Dallas Daniels is finally upon us as the newly turned 16-year-old joins his Estenson Racing teammate Ryan Wells at the Lima Half-Mile, Saturday, June 29.
Fresh off his first National win in the MotoAmerica Junior Cup class at Utah Motorsports Campus, Daniels is eager to kick off his career in American Flat Track. The 2018 AMA Athlete of the Year from Grand Championship events made history by being the first rider to earn the Nicky Hayden AMA Horizon Award in both flat track and road racing during the same calendar year. Daniels, who is a third-generation flat track racer, looks to score a top result at one of the sports most historic events..
Wells is also looking forward to the Lima Half-Mile, and the 2016 AFT Singles champ loves the pea-gravel cushion track at Allen County Fairgrounds . The New Yorker is looking to repeat his dominant victory during his championship-winning season and hopes to score his second victory in 2019 aboard the Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F.Ryan Wells – AFT Singles #94:
“I cannot wait to get on track at Lima this weekend. This is, by far, my favorite race of the year, so I head there every year with high expectations. I won here in 2016 by a large margin, so I’m hoping to repeat that performance to get my second win of the season.”Dallas Daniels – AFT Singles #163:
“I’ve been waiting for this day my entire life, basically. It’s what I’ve worked so hard for and prepared for. Obviously, I’m very excited and ready to get going. I’m not really nervous or anything. I know I’ve got good equipment and a great team behind me with Estenson Racing. I think we can go in and do well.”
