Sammy Halbert pre-season video
This came in from Sammy...
'Ask anyone on the AMA Flat Track Grand National circuit to name the series bad boy, and you'll hear one name more often than not: Sammy Halbert. "I race to win. Always have. Always will," said Halbert, whose on-track bold riding is a sharp contrast to his off-track mild-mannered demeanor.
'Halbert's riding aggressiveness and skills have brought much success to the Pacific Northwest rider, who rocked the racing world in 2009 when he was crowned the AMA Flat Track Grand National Champion at age twenty-two, making him the 5th youngest rider to ever win the championship. Halbert won the championship, beating out big names like Factory Harley rider Kenny Coolbeth and seven time champ Chris Carr, while riding for a family-run team, with dad and grandpa tuning bikes.
'Halbert is often described as an old school racer's racer, with a "win the race or die trying" attitude. After finishing 4th in the series in 2010, Halbert is ready to kick ass in 2011.'
