After his Buffalo Chip TT win with the Estenson Racing squad, Jake Johnson is hungry for more. And what would be better than another TT victory this season at one of American Flat Track’s hallowed venues and the longest running event in the Grand National Championship’s history – the 72nd Annual Peoria TT?
Johnson has had multiple podiums at the Peoria Motorcycle Club’s Peoria Race Park, but in the modern era Henry Wiles has reigned. It’s a track that Johnson has always enjoyed, and the two-time Grand National Champion would love nothing more than to take the win at “King Henry’s” house on the Indian Scout FTR750.
Jake Johnson – AFT Twins #5:
“I’m really excited for Peoria, especially just coming off a TT win at the Buffalo Chip. Peoria has always been one of my favorite tracks, but it is one track where I’ve never been able to pull off the win. This year, I’m really hoping to bring it home.”
The Peoria TT is streamed live, Saturday, August 18, on FansChoice.TV starting with practice at 11:30 a.m. ET, followed by Opening Ceremonies at 2:45 p.m. ET, Heats at 3:00 p.m. ET and the Main Events at 4:45 p.m. ET.
