Dallas, TX (February 28, 2019) – Roof Systems of Dallas, TX is eager to announce a massive expansion of its American Flat Track efforts for 2019. Roof Systems will now boast the largest footprint in the AFT paddock, fielding a total of seven fully-sponsored riders spanning all three classes.
Within the AFT Singles presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys class, Roof Systems is pleased to announce the return of its veteran rider Jesse Janisch. Racking up four podiums and a win at the Peoria TT, Janisch finished fifth overall in points in 2018. Janisch will be joined by UK-native Oliver Brindley, who earned his first podium finish at the 2018 Springfield TT, and Trent Lowe, a new talent joining the Roof Systems effort for his rookie season. All three riders will compete aboard a fleet of distinct Yamaha YZ450F machines tuned by 2017 AFT Tuner of the Year Andrew Butler.
Additionally, Roof Systems will continue its ongoing support of Red Bull KTM factory riders Dan Bromley and Shayna Texter during the 2019 American Flat Track season.
The campaign continues as Roof Systems takes a leadership position within the AFT Production Twins class by fielding two experienced riders – Kevin Stollings and Ben Lowe – aboard Kawasaki Ninja 650s.
For the premier AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines class, fourth-in-points finisher and winner of 2018 Springfield Mile I, Jeffrey Carver, Jr. returns to the roster coming off his most-successful season to date. Carver will be joined by newly-added teammate and AFT Twins rookie Brandon Price. Both athletes will contend aboard Indian Motorcycle FTR750 machinery.
“I’m thrilled to be starting a new chapter for both JCS Racing and Roof Systems in 2019,” said Jerry Stinchfield, Team Owner of Roof Systems. “Our AFT Singles riders provide a diverse triple-threat advantage: Jesse’s multi-faceted racing background, Oliver’s overseas experience and Trent’s up-and-coming aptitude.”
“We’ve also developed a well-rounded AFT Twins initiative consisting of both competitive machines and riders,” Stinchfield added. “Brandon Price’s fresh talent aligns perfectly with Jeffrey’s historically successful career while Ben and Kevin are exactly who Roof Systems needed to establish our presence in AFT Production Twins. I also wanted to make sure I maintained relationships with riders I’ve endorsed in the past, such as Dan Bromley and Shayna Texter. We’re a family at Roof Systems, and I like it that way.”
American Flat Track will kick off its highly-anticipated 2019 season with the Bigger, Better, and Faster Daytona TT presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys under the lights of the Daytona International Speedway on Thursday, March 14, 2019. Tickets start at just $35 online ($45 at the gate) and are available for purchase now at www.americanflattrack.com.
