Three-time World Superbike champ Troy Bayliss is taking his love of flat track stateside. The 46-year-old Australian will compete in five events on the AMA Pro Flat Track schedule (the Springfield Mile on May 24, Sacramento Mile on May 30, Du Quoin Mile on July 4, Indy Mile on July 11, Springfield Mile on Sept. 6) aboard a Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati.
“Dirt and flat track racing are where I cut my teeth as a junior,” Bayliss said. “Everything I have learned on the dirt helped me through my career in road racing and to find myself back where it all started makes me feel young again.”
“Having Troy Bayliss race with AMA Pro Flat Track at some of our most storied venues really multiplies the excitement and positive momentum we have as a sport right now,” said Michael Gentry, COO of AMA Pro Racing. “Seeing him on American dirt is a mouthwatering prospect. We are looking forward to the excitement created by his presence in our paddock.”
