With all the drama and negativity swirling around the struggling AMA Pro Road Racing series for the past several years, it can sometimes be easy to forget that people get into racing because it’s fun.
But the boys and girls on the track haven’t forgotten, as evidenced by this recent video from the Apex Manufacturing/Sportbike Track Time/Castrol/Triumph Racing team. The video captures the exploits and antics of Triumph Racing teammates Elena Myers and Jason DiSalvo at Talladega Gran Prix Raceway in Alabama.
The diminutive DiSalvo is a veteran professional racer, having competed and won at various national and international levels since 1997. Or as Myers puts it, “since, like, around the time I was born.” Myers, for her part, became the first woman ever to win an AMA Pro Road Race in 2010, at the age of just 16.
Whatever their differences in age and experience, the two clearly know how to have a good time together on the track. Their cone-toppling, tire-smoking, rear-wheel-drifting hooliganism is sure to put a smile on any fan’s face. Even if we do have to wait six weeks for the next AMA Pro Road Race.
