This is getting daft. Sunday's race was delayed nearly two hours because of rain, so the first singles practice started at 11pm UK time. I saw the new schedule, watched singles Qualifying 1 (Q1), then set my alarm for 1am and slept...

Last year they had former champions Kolby Carlile (on a single) and Jake Johnson (in t...

Very exciting news for the AFT Twins class: JD Beach has joined the well-respected Estenson team to race a full season of AFT Twins. 

This says a lot about the state of pro flat track compared to road racing. Since the mid-70s...

Mees inherited the lead when early leader Briar Bauman crashed and took out...
