Two AMA Hall of Famers have joined to form one of the most talked about teams going into the 2010 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Series; Bill Werner and Jay Springsteen.

Bill Werner was a legendary racing mechanic for the Harley-Davidson Motor Company who tuned motorcycles that carried Gary Scott, Jay Springsteen and Scott Parker to a total of 130 National Championship Wins and 13 AMA Grand National Championships.

Jay Springsteen is considered one of the most talented AMA Grand National flat-track racers of all time with 40 National Wins and 3 AMA Grand National Titles.

Bryan Smith, formerly of the Screaming Eagle Harley team, has agreed to race Kawasakis in the 2010 Grand National Flat Track circuit in both the Expert Singles and Expert Twins classes.

Smith will race on the Werner Springsteen Racing Kawasaki team, alongside Chaz Springsteen, nephew of racing legend Jay Springsteen. Springsteen will compete in the Pro Singles class.

Smith will ride the Kawasaki Ninja 650 twin in the Grand National Expert Twins Class and the Kawasaki KX 450 in the Grand National Expert Singles Class. Chas Springsteen will ride a KX 450 in the Pro Singles class. Jay Springsteen will serve as a team coach and mentor, while legendary tuner Bill Werner will prepare the equipment.

"We're excited about the addition of this new venue to our historic racing facility. The Daytona Flat Track is certainly going to be a coveted ticket and we encourage all of race fans to get their tickets in advance."

Daytona Dirt Track Test
On Thursday, January 7th, three AMA Pro Racing riders- Cory Texter, Shanya Texter and Brandon Robinson - shook down the new Daytona dirt track for the first time.

"I'm excited to come back and ride now," Cory Texter said. "When I heard they were building it right outside the Speedway, that doubles the excitement. You can get a lot more (fans) in here. People who don't want to travel so far out to the old stadium to watch us, now it's right outside the Speedway. There are no excuses for all the fans to come out and check it out."

Tickets for the AMA Pro Racing Flat Track race and all races during Daytona 200 Week By Honda can be purchased online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.
