Even prior to his recent heroics in AFT Singles competition, Mikey Rush was already a proven commodity in the premier class of American Flat Track racing. As the 2007 Rookie of the Year and a two-time GNC Main Event winner, Rush could be expected to break inside the top ten with regularity and occasionally do considerably better than that. However, after years of living the privateer life, he finally got a taste of what it was like to be a factory rider during a stint as a substitute for the official Harley-Davidson team in 2018. Armed with that experience, Rush was eager to become one of the first in a developing trend of established Twins riders to represent manufacturer-backed AFT Singles efforts when offered the opportunity by Richie Morris Racing and American Honda in 2019. The Californian came through in a huge way, finishing the season as the ‘19 AFT Singles championship runner-up with four wins and seven podiums. Light and compact, Rush was outstanding on the Miles in 2019, winning three times. However, he also showed off the skills that made him a two-time premier-class Short Track race winner with a victory at the ‘19 Laconia ST. Estenson Racing with support from Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA, signed him for 2020 and he repaid them with another excellent AFT Singles season. In ‘20 he finished the year fourth overall with a win at Williams Grove and four total podiums. He jumped straight into the premier class of American Flat Track in 2009 and scored his first win in 2013 at the Daytona Short Track. After some tough years in the privateer ranks in the Twins class, he made the move to the AFT Singles in 2019. The Californian had a standout season finishing second in the championship with four wins and seven podiums. Rush now looks to build on last year’s success and bring home the title aboard the Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F.
