PHOENIX (June 28, 2018) – Estenson Racing’s Jake Johnson heads to one of American Flat Track’s legendary venues – Allen County Fairgrounds – on Saturday, June 30, to kick up some pea gravel and make a run for the podium at the Lima Half-Mile.
With a weekend off to rest and regroup, Johnson and his crew look to build on the progress they made with the Indian Motorcycle Scout FTR750 at the previous round in Oklahoma City. Although more of a groove-track rider, Johnson is happy to return to the Half-Miles and let it all hang out at Lima to score his first AFT Twins podium of the season.
Jake Johnson – AFT Twins #5:
“I do have a lot of laps around there [Allen County Fairgrounds]. I’ve done well there in the past, but I’ve kind of been one extreme to the next at Lima. Typically, I’m kind of a groove-track guy but it’s kind of nice to get a little bit of a change and be able to hang it out and go sideways and throw some dirt.
“We learned a lot at Oklahoma and I think that’s going to apply towards Lima. We’ll see. I’m looking forward to getting back on the Half-Miles and not having to worry about drafting or any of that stuff; just go out there and kind of leave your brain in the toolbox and just ride the thing. Looking forward to that. Hopefully, we can keep improving.”
