SPRINGFIELD, IL (August 5, 2011) - The thousands of flat track fans who filled the Illinois State Fairgrounds grandstands for Sunday night's AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Round 16 were treated to one of the most thrilling sights in motorsports: a Mile specialist at work on the kind of circuit that made flat track famous. The top ten riders were blanketed by a single second when the checkered flag flew, but it was Harley-Davidson of Wausau/Independence Harley-Davidson's Willie McCoy who bested Chris Carr and a tightly packed field of hard-charging riders to claim an emotion career-first Grand National victory. "I can't believe this," said McCoy. "I've wanted to win this race my whole life. I even knew exactly what I would say afterward, but I don't remember a thing now. I just wish my wife and daughters could have been here, but I know they're celebrating at home."
