GRAHAM, WA – July 22, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Sammy Halbert has announced he will be joining forces with Wiebler’s Harley-Davidson® for the remainder of the 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track Season. Halbert parted ways with the BriggsAuto.com team following the Lima Half-Mile.
Halbert will ride the Wiebler’s Harley-Davidson XR750s for the first time at the Ashland, OH Half-Mile on Saturday, July 23, before making the team’s AMA Pro Flat Track debut at the Charlotte Half-Mile on Saturday, July 30.
“I appreciate the support Briggs Auto provided me during our time together. Despite the success we had, it was clear the team’s chemistry was off and it was time for change,” said Halbert. “Moving to a new team mid-season isn’t ideal, but I’m really looking forward to working with the Wiebler’s team and finishing this season out on a winning note.”
Halbert won the 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track season opener at Daytona Beach, Florida and led the GNC1 championship points through the first four rounds. He currently is 3rd in points behind Bryan Smith and Jared Mees.
“We are very excited for the opportunity to have Sammy Halbert ride the Wiebler’s Harley-Davidson XR750 for the rest of the season. We’re looking forward to the move and to a strong finish this season,” said Brett Wiebler of Wiebler’s Harley-Davidson. “Sammy brings years of experience to the race team and has proved on the race track that he is a winner.”
