MILWAUKEE (January 28, 2017) – It’s a flat-track triple threat. The Harley-Davidson®Factory Flat Track Racing Team will unleash a three-rider squad in 2017. Former AMA Grand National champions Kenny Coolbeth Jr. and Jake Johnson and young flat-track star Brandon Robinson will race in the legendary Factory Team leathers.
The team was announced today during a live interview with Coolbeth, Johnson and Robinson during ABC network coverage of ESPN’s X Games Aspen.
Gunning for the checkered flag aboard the fierce Harley-Davidson XG750R competition motorcycle, the formidable trio of ace racers will chase a championship on the American Flat Track (AFT) series and fight to medal in the Harley-Davidson Flat Track Racing event at ESPN’s X Games Minneapolis. The racing season opens during Daytona Bike Week at the March 16 AFT Daytona TT on a new circuit featuring a jump to be constructed inside Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.
