Johnny Lewis takes his DR.D/Scott Powersports’ Kawasaki 650 to eighth place at the Springfield Mile

Lewis was the only Kawasaki pilot competing in the main event

 

After several days of rain in the Midwest, the dirt oval at the Illinois State Fairgrounds was wet and tacky. Typically not the best conditions for a motorcycle flat track race; however the field for the first twins race of the young 2011 season for the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Flat Track Championship was ready. Putting his Scott Powersports/Triple J Racing/DR.D Kawasaki 650 customer flat tracker into the Springfield Mile main event was Pennsylvania’s Johnny Lewis. The athlete bested last year’s finish by earning an eighth place on Sunday, May 29 after digging deep to move from the back of the field.
