DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 7, 2020) – As anticipation climbs for the 2020 season of American Flat TrackCoolbeth-Nila Racing makes an announcement sure to turn the tide of the inaugural AFT SuperTwins season. Making his debut on the Indian Motorcycle FTR750, Sammy Halbert will pilot the Coolbeth-Nila machine in 2020.
“We are really excited to get the season started,” said Kenny Coolbeth, Jr. of Coolbeth-Nila Racing. “We have made a lot of major improvements to the bikes, and combine that with Sammy’s drive to win, and I feel like we will be up front and contending for wins. Our team owner John Wise has put a lot into the program within the last couple of months to make sure that Sammy will be set up to be a major contender in the SuperTwins class.”

 

Arguably one of the most versatile riders on the circuit, Halbert has scored a victory on each of the four types of AFT tracks. With thirteen career premier class victories to his name, Halbert is excited and optimistic about his transition to the multi-championship-winning FTR750.

 

“I’m honored to have Kenny Coolbeth choose me to ride for him, especially after having raced with him in the AFT series since 2005,” said Halbert. “We’ve had a lot of great battles on the track over the years, which makes it that much more special to combine our efforts and talents to take on the competition. I’m excited to see what I can do on a bike that’s already a proven winner. With the full support of this team behind me, and our growing list of partners including Roof Systems of Dallas, Texas, I am looking forward to great things this year.”
