The number of Harley-Davidson XG750Rs on the racetrack will remain at four for the rest of the 2018 American Flat Track season.
The Harley-Davidson/Vance & Hines factory flat track team announced today that Mikey Rush (No. 54 Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Team XG750R) will remain with the team for the September 29Indian Motorcycle Minnesota Mile at Canterbury Park near Minneapolis, MN and AFT’s Meadowlands Mile presented by Ducati finale at MetLife Sports Complex in East Rutherford, NJ on October 6.
“As we continue to develop the XG750R we’re always looking for ways to test at the AFT events,” said team principal Terry Vance. “With the tight race day schedule Mikey Rush provides our team an opportunity to test on the actual race track. Mikey is a quality rider and person, so we’re glad to have him helping the team at the final two races of the season.”
Rush, who made his debut on the H-D factory squad at the 2018 Sturgis Buffalo Chip TT as a sub for the then-injured Brandon Robinson, finished 7that The Chip that day. Rush’s testing and evaluative contributions, in addition to those of Robinson and teammates Sammy Halbert and Jarod Vanderkooi, will be valued as the team works to narrow the gap between the production-based XG and the race-only Indian Scout FTR750, which has been so dominant over the last two seasons.
Keep an eye on Rush and the rest of the H-D/V&H factory team as they attempt to make a stand on Indian Motorcycle’s home turf in Minnesota on Saturday, September 29for the Indian Motorcycle Minnesota Mile at Canterbury Park.
