Kenny Coolbeth; Shayna Texter Dominate AMA Races Saturday Night

If last year’s A-M-A Pro Flat Track Motorcycle races had exciting finishes…Saturday’s winners made sure there was no drama. Kenny Coolbeth Jr., who was running his second race back from an injury that sidelined him most of the season took the lead after an early stoppage and ran away with the Pro Twins class. Coolbeth’s biggest challenger and last year’s winner Jared Mees had mechanical trouble midway through the race and that allowed Coolbeth to cruise to the win. Jake Johnson was second and Sammy Halbert was third. The Pro Singles was also dominated for the second straight year by Shayna Texter. She was the first female to win an A-M-A main event last year at Knoxville and she had no trouble grabbing the lead three laps into the 16 lap event and pulled away for the win. Jake Cunningham was second and Stephen Vanderkuur was third.
