After a rough weekend battling illness and the heat at the Springfield TT, Estenson Racing’s Kolby Carlile is looking forward to returning to a big track on Saturday June 2 for round eight of the American Flat Track season at the Red Mile.
On the back of his perfect night at the Sacramento Mile a few weeks ago, Carlile heads into the Red Mile with a lot of confidence. He and his crew have his Yamaha YZ450F dialed in, and with a week of rest, the defending AFT Singles Champion is hoping take the win on another narrow-grooved track.
Kolby Carlile – AFT Singles #1:
“I’m really excited to be heading to another Mile track. We had a pretty dominant performance at Sacramento. The Red Mile and Sacramento are pretty different, but similar in the way that the grooves are very narrow. You can’t really do much passing through the corners, so a strong motorcycle is very important. We got a great package coming into that. I’m going to hopefully be better next week and not be sick. So that’s the most important thing. My health and just keep going out there and having fun.”
The Red Mile is streamed live, Saturday, June 2, on FansChoice.TV starting with practice at 3:30 p.m. ET, followed by Opening Ceremonies at 6:30 p.m. ET, Heats at 7:00 p.m. ET and the Main Events at 9:10 p.m. ET.
