Anyone follow flat track ?
« on: October 22, 2019, 12:27:55 pm »
Came across some American Flat Track racing last night on Youtube. Wow really something else when you are used to MX, SX and circuit racing. Really enjoyed it and good to see Indians up there. Season almost over but one can still view the races on their channel.

Kenny refused to Ride it again "they don't pay me enough money to ride that thing" or words to that effect... :peepwall:

I always thought that it was KR himself who built the thing in the first place?
