MIKEY AVILA TAKES THE CHECKERED FLAG AT

STANISLAUS COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS

 

 

Adding another yet another notch on his belt, SDI Insulation AMA Pro Grand National competitor Mikey Avila deftly piloted his way to victory April 28th at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds in Turlock, Calif.

 

Marking the return of Flat Track Racing to the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds after an absence of 25 years, Avila definitely showed them how it is done.

 

Starting dead last in his heat, this rising young AMA Pro Flat Track star worked his way to the front of the pack to finish in the Number One spot.  In addition to taking the win, Avila also set fast lap and earned the pole for the Main.

 

When the Green Flag fell, Avila grabbed the hole shot and never looked back. 

 

“Taking this win is awesome,” said Avila.  “It is great to see flat track return to this area after such a long absence and to be able to take the Checkered here is definitely cool.  My bike was really hooked up and it was one of those races where everything was just perfect.”

 

This season, this popular California native is contesting the highly competitive AMA Pro Grant National series. Racing since he was four years old, Avila has more than proven his skill aboard two wheels. Running in the Pro Singles class in 2010, Avila finished third overall in the point standings and last year, he took six wins and four podium finishes to earn second overall.

 

With just two rounds out of 17 complete, Avila next heads to Springfield, May 26th and 27th for the running of the famed Springfield TT and the Springfield Mile.

 

In addition to SDI Insulation Avila is sponsored by Serramonte Ford, Circle Bell Racing, Boughner Racing, Mack Daddy Racing, Galvin Precession Machining, Arai, Kal Gard, Alpinestars, Motion Pro, Westcoast Hotshoes, K&N Filters, Dickle Racing, Fox, Matrix Concepts, Works Connection, Hooper Motorsports and EBC Brakes
