Coming Off Historic Victory, Texter Takes Husqvarna to New York Short Track

AFT GNC Half Mile, Lima, OH 6-30-2018

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. (6 July 2018) – Coming off the historic first American Flat Track (AFT) victory for Husqvarna and ST52 Racing, Shayna Texter is set to tackle to challenges of short track racing in Saturday evening’s Harley-Davidson New York Short Track at Weedsport Speedway.
The Pennsylvania rider led start to finish last Saturday in the Indian Motorcycle Lima Half-Mile at the Allen County Fairgrounds in Lima, Ohio.  Racing the No. 52 Husqvarna FC 450, Texter scored her 14th career victory, marking her first win since forming her own team for 2018 American Flat Track Singles competition.
Historic Weedsport Speedway hosts the Flat Trackers for the first time in the series’ lone 2018 visit to the Empire State. The facility opened in 1955 and has a rich tradition of modified stock car competition. The three-eighths mile circuit will be the second of three short track races in the 2018 season. Texter finished seventh earlier this season in the short track race at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, Ga.
“I’m excited to be racing up in New York, and we’re looking to carry the momentum from our last few rounds,” Texter said. “We are continuing to make progress with the Husqvarna FC 450, and getting our first win of 2018 last weekend was huge!”
Texter’s historic Lima Half-Mile victory will be televised on Saturday, July 7, on NBCSN at 2 p.m. ET.
Saturday’s schedule begins with AFT Singles practice at 4:15 p.m. ET, followed by qualifying at 4:45. The first Singles heat race is set for 7 p.m., followed by the semis at 8:45. The 15-lap main event is set to get the green light at 9:29 p.m. All on-track activity will be streamed live on www.FansChoice.TV.
