On the amateur side of the Springfield TT, it was a big night for the Estenson Racing squad with twins rider JD Beach battling Dallas Daniels for top honors in the Steve Nace All Stars Singles Main Event. 15-year-old Daniels will make his professional flat track debut on the Estenson Racing team this June at the Lima Half-Mile.
The Illinois native got the holeshot from the outside, with Davis Fisher following behind in second and Beach in third. Beach quickly got past Fisher and went after his teammate Daniels. He passed his young teammate in the left-handed sweeper before the finish line on lap two and held onto the lead until the checkers.
Daniels found himself locked in a battle with Fisher as the race wound down. Fisher made some moves and made one last push out of the final turn, but Daniels was able to hold off the 2015 AFT Singles Champion to take the runner-up position. In addition to second place in the All Star race, he also notched a couple of wins in the other two 450 amateur classes.
