G&G Racing’s Mikey Rush Ready For Calistoga Half-Mile – and Five Upcoming Miles, as well
Sent on behalf of G&G Racing
Yucaipa, Calif. (May 2, 2018) - G&G Racing’s Mikey Rush, #54 in the AFT Twins class, is looking forward to the Calistoga Half-Mile this weekend in Northern California’s wine country after a rocky start to the 2018 season.
Rush made the Main in Daytona, but an injured knee held him to 14th. In Atlanta he struggled both days with traction and missed the Main by one spot. Rush ran more competitively in Texas, winning his Heat and holeshotting and leading his Semi, but a suspension change in the Main had him skating all over the track. Feeling unsafe, he eventually pulled off. Still, Rush is confident he can change things around this weekend aboard his #54 Yamaha MT-07.
“I missed the main in Calistoga last year by one spot,” Rush said, “by getting pushed off the groove. But I felt really great and can’t wait to race there this weekend. The G&G Racing Yamaha MT-07 is a great platform. It has great power, speed, and acceleration. I have been working on my starts and at Texas it really showed. And the MT-07’s acceleration helped me keep the jump all the way to the corner. The power and speed allow me to pull other riders on the straights. I am really looking forward to this weekend and the five miles in a row that follow.”
G&G supports several other AFT riders, as well. Kayl Kolkman, #98 in the AFT Twins class, has had a better start to his season than last year aboard his Yamaha MT-07. Nick Armstrong, #60 in the AFT Twins class, skipped the first three races due to funds and is looking forward to his first race of the season this weekend on his Yamaha MT-07. Brad “The Bullet” Baker, #6 in the AFT Twins class, has had a rough start, suffering a concussion last weekend in Texas, but is looking forward to this weekend on his factory Indian FTR750R if he passes the concussion protocol – which he expects to do. Chad Cose, #49 in the AFT Twins class, is having a great season, getting his first podium in the AFT Twins class with a 3rd in Texas on his Indian FTR750R. JD Beach, #95 in the AFT Twins class, shined early, but has gone back to his MotoAmerica road racing.
