AFT are on the cusp of completing what many thought they'd struggle to do, finishing a meaningful season of racing. They've have to adapt, reschedule and work flat out, but they've delivered seven double-header racing weekends, with Daytona Short Track this weekend, being the final. The season started on 17 July, four months later than schedule, but is ending less than a month later than planned.
The Singles class is wrapped up, with Dallas Daniels as champ, and we hear he will remain in AFT Singles next year.
Production Twins looks likely to be James Rispoli, on the Harley, as he's 38pts ahead of defending champ, Cory Texter with a maximum of 50pts available from two races.
SuperTwins is a lot closer. AFT explain, 'As a result of last Saturday’s race cancellation, reigning champion Bauman enters the finale with a nine-point advantage. That margin provides Mees one overriding mission: sweep both races -- as he did in the year’s only other ST doubleheader -- and he’s guaranteed the crown.'
'Bauman’s marching orders aren’t quite as clear cut other than the fact that above all else, he needs to prevent Mees from winning both Main Events. Should Bauman earn a victory in one of the doubleheader’s twin Mains, he’d only need to finish eighth or better in the other one, even if Mees happened to collect a win and a runner-up result on the weekend.'
The races take place on Friday and Saturday night. Some tickets are still available at the time of writing.
