"I feel lucky to have the opportunity to ride for Estenson Logistics on bikes prepared by Ted Mcdermitt,” said Halbert. “My brother Jethro rode for Ted years ago, so I know that he comes to the races with beautiful bikes that are prepped to win. The support that Estenson is providing me is already far and above anything I've had before. I'm happy, healthy and motivated to win in 2017."

"I'm extremely excited to have Sammy as a part of Estenson Racing,” said Tim Estenson, Co-Founder of Estenson Logistics Race Team. “With all of the changes in 2017 and a truck full of fast bikes, I feel we are positioned to do very well, especially with a rider of Sammy's experience and proven talent level."

At the 2016 season opener on the Daytona Short Track, Halbert posted an early win on his Yamaha YZF450 and the Graham, Washington native looks to repeat that early success in 2017 aboard the Yamaha FZ-07. For 2017, the AFT Twins class moves to an all twin-cylinder format and will debut on a brand-new TT track built inside Daytona International Speedway.

"I'm really looking forward to the challenge of racing on a big twin at the Daytona TT,” continued Halbert. “I feel confident in my abilities to come to a new racetrack and figure out the fast way around before the others. A handful of my wins over the years have come at new venues for the series, including the first race on the last Daytona track. I'll be trying to work that magic again and be the first winner of this new era for the sport."
