On the eve of the American Flat Track season opener at the Daytona TT, the Estenson Racing squad looks to hit the ground running with some wins.
Leading the campaign in the AFT Twins class is the newest member of the squad — Jake Johnson. The two-time Grand National Champion is eager to race his Teddy and Cory McDermitt tuned Yamaha FZ-07 for the first time tomorrow night at the Daytona International Speedway. Johnson is quite at home on a TT track and looks to end his win drought in Daytona Beach, where he last won on the Short Track outside of the Speedway nearly two years ago.
Similarly, Johnson’s teammate Kolby Carlile is ready to get back in action and defend his AFT Singles Championship on the Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F. The “Flying Tomato” has stepped his game in the offseason and feels better than ever going into 2018. Carlile also had a good showing at the inaugural Daytona TT and would love to improve last season’s podium finish with a win.
