February 15, 2014 - DPC Racing and Don’s Kawasaki are pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement with newly formed AMA Pro Flat Track Team Twist Grip Motorsports for the 2014 AMA Pro Racing Grand National series. This arrangement will certainly benefit all of the team and support Henry Wiles in his pursuit of the National Championship.
Henry Wiles, sponsored by Twist Grip Motorsports, Don’s Kawasaki, and DPC Racing, will ride Kawasaki motorcycles at all 16 events this season. His 750 Twins bikes are built by Eddie Adkins (EA Racing) with engines by Woody Kyle (WKR) and use J&M frames. His 450 Singles bikes are built by Don’s Kawasaki (Hellam, PA) using Ron Hamp (RHC) engines.
Henry Wiles, national number 17, has earned 25 GNC victories and two National Singles Championships. Among his many accomplishments he has won the famous Peoria TT nine consecutive times. Henry also competed in the Troy Bayliss Classic in Australia this year, finishing 4th overall.
Grand national rider number 31, Dan Ingram will join the team for round 1 and 2 of the series in Daytona as will former champion and platinum country music star Beau Braswell. Braswell will be riding selected events throughout the year when available from his "Sideways" tour in 2014.
The team is ready to get the season started; Wiles said, “I am completely jazzed about this season. We have been working on building a new race team for several months." Braswell is equally excited and stated, "I've always wanted to be part of an AMA Pro Flat Track Team and this is a great team to be a part of."
All three riders joined Barry Boone on the "Talking Motorcycles"radio show earlier this week and made announcements about the team and upcoming season.
