This weekend is the Texas Half Mile. Now it's time to get to the "Meat and Potatoes" of the racing season; Half Miles and Miles. The production Twins class is having its first race of the season, and from the hype from AFT there are a lot of singles riders who'll be out there on twins. There will be at least one XG 750 out there. It's being ridden by multi time road race winner Danny Eslick and is part of the Black Hills H-D team. I was a fan of Eslick when he was racing Buells in Superbike events, and I'm hoping he does well on Saturday. Danny will be riding a Yamaha in the Singles class as well as the Production Class XG.
I'm also hoping that there are more bikes that can run with and beat the Indians. Brian Smith's Kawasaki should hopefully be in the mix and I have high hopes for JD Beach on the Yamaha, as well as the Factory XGs of Vanderkooi and Halbert.
I'll be glued to my laptop starting at 5:00 Saturday afternoon. I hope it's a good race!
