Kyle Johnson Wins Lima Half-Mile

Pro Singles Points Lead Now Within Grasp

MEDFORD, OR – June 30, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – It was back-to-back wins for Motorcycle Superstore / Bell Helmet AMA Pro Flat Track’s Kyle Johnson as he ran away with the overall win in the Pro Singles class at the Half-Mile in Lima, Ohio.

Fresh off the win from Knoxville, Johnson put his Parkinson Brothers Racing Honda back on top the box in an impressive display of qualifying and a main event win that out-distanced the field by a whopping 5.439 seconds.

“We rolled into Lima with some momentum from our win at Knoxville and the Allstar race in Ashland the weekend before. Since I got started in the flat track game a little later than most of the other guys, I didn’t have as much experience on a track like Lima. I knew I would have my work cut out for me. After free practice and qualifying I was the fastest Pro Singles qualifier which gave me a front row start in my heat.

“In the heat I got a decent start and a comfortable lead which boosted my confidence for the main. The main event started with a good battle with Bobby Descenta and with some patience I was able to find a line to take the lead and make it stick and from there I just kept extending my lead.

“It felt really good to gain the much needed points in the chase for the championship. I am hoping to carry this momentum to Hagerstown. Big thanks to all my sponsors, family and friends for their support.”
