Triumph Motorcycles Press Release:

Shayna Texter and the #25A Latus Motors/ Castrol/ Triumph team along with Mikey Martin - #91 Bonneville Performance Racing/ Castrol/ Triumph saddle up for the second time to race the Springfield Mile in the third to last race of the AMA Grand National Championship season. Located at the northern tip of state capitol, the Springfield Mile one-mile oval is comprised of smooth clay and offers a very fast racing surface for riders.

“It’s going to be a quick race with a focus on speed and control in the corners,” said Martin. “Passes are going to be made or broken in the straights, so I’m looking forward to pushing the limits of my Bonneville to move up on the leaderboard in this race.”

Shayna Texter maintains second place in the rookie standings just nine points behind the leader. She and her team have continued confidence in closing the gap at this weekend’s event.

“With only three races left in the season I am confident in catching up,” said Texter. “We’ve put in a lot of work and time on the track this season and after gaining five points last weekend, I know we can continue the charge.”

Gates open this Sunday, August 31st, at 7:30 a.m. The first practice session begins at 10:15 a.m. and Opening Ceremonies begin at 1:00 p.m.
