Yamaha bLU cRU Champion JD Beach Is Ready To Race The Blue Groove At The American Flat Track Finals This Weekend

Philpot, KY - October 3, 2017 – 2015 MotoAmerica Supersport Champion and current Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha road racer JD Beach will peel off his knee pucks and slip on a steel shoe as he competes in the AFT Twins class at this Saturday’s American Flat Track Finals in Perris, California.

JD will race the #95 G&G Racing/Rickdiculous Racing/Team95/Yamaha FZ-07 in the AFT Twins class. As a warmup for the event, JD raced the bike last weekend at Walt James Stadium, located at Willow Springs International Raceway in Southern California, and he reached the podium with a strong third-place finish in the Twins Main Event on the 3/8-mile, high-banked, dirt-oval track.

“First off, I have to give a big thank you to my Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha team for letting me do these dirt track races,” JD said. “I’m really excited to return to my roots and race the American Flat Track Finals on a Yamaha FZ-07 twin! I love road racing, but flat track has a special place in my heart. G&G Racing made it super-easy to put this deal together, and Rickdiculous Racing has been a big help, as well. Also, I have to give a big thank-you to Mikey Rush for letting me come on board as his teammate. Perris should be an awesome event, and I can’t wait to get the weekend going. It’s going to be a blast!”

The American Flat Track Finals will take place on Saturday, October 7, as part of the Southern California Fair in Perris, California. Tickets start at just $20 and include admission to the Southern California Fair. For general admission tickets, go to
