Leading the charge in the premier AFT SuperTwins class is multi-time road race champion JD Beach. The road racer with dirt track roots enters his first full-season in American Flat Track looking to build on last season’s results. He scored a pair of wins in the debut season for the Estenson Racing Yamaha MT-07 DT and made history at the SuperTT with the first victory for Yamaha in the series’ premier Twins class since 1981. With the season’s start being delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Beach and the rest of the team have been hard at work at the continued development of their flat tracker and he is eager to get back to racing.
Kolby Carlile returns with the team for his fourth season and makes the step up to the premier class in 2020. The 2017 AFT Singles Champion had a solid debut on the Twin last season, overcoming an early season injury and scoring a pair of wins in the AFT Production Twins class to end the year third in the standings. Carlile now has his eyes set on a top finish in the premier class and has put in the hours to come out swinging.
Joining the team for 2020 to lead the way in the AFT Singles Championship is veteran Mikey Rush. The Californian made the switch to the class last year and came just shy of the title in 2019. He and the team have spent the winter and the extended off-season fine-tuning the Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F. Rush is quite at home with his new team and is looking to stand on top of the box at the Volusia Half-Mile doubleheader.
Young flat track phenom Dallas Daniels returns for his first full season in American Flat Track. The fast kid from Illinois turned pro last June after his 16th birthday and turned a lot of heads with his dominant debut win at the Peoria TT. He went on to score a pair of podiums at the season’s end and looks to pick up where he left off to launch his title offense in 2020.
In addition to increased support from Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA (YMUS) the team has gone through some restructuring and brought on board personnel with championship-winning experience. The team also returns with the support of some powerhouse partners: Monster Energy, Yamaha Racing, Yamalube, WPS, FLY, Dainese, Motion Pro, Vortex, Pilot Flying J, Truline, and Utility trailers.
