Default Victory racing

When is Victory going to get involved in racing...[Flat-Track] ?

For those who haven't been following...Flat-Track has been dominated by HD for the most part for several years. Lately Kawasaki, Ducati, Aprilia KTM, & Triumph have become involved and doing pretty well . Matter of fact Bryan Smith on the Kawasaki EX-650 has back-to-back wins [on miles] this season. At Springfield & Sacramento .

Nothing against HD for sure...but IMO competition from many brands improves any racing. If for no other reason ?...it usually draws yet more spectators [fans of that brand] I would really like too see Vic, get into it. After "cutting their teeth" no reason they couldn't do well.

Anyone heard anything ?

The 2015 season is only about 1/3 over, with many good races across the nation still to come. Three good mile races for example...DuQuoin, Il July 4 & Indy July 11, and of course the fall mile @ Springfield Sept.6

1) Victory has a NHRA race team, and Project 156 for pikes peak. Also Roland Sands has a Victory project for 200 mph. (Not there yet)

2) Flat track is sanitation by AMA rules, which favor H-D. Most classes are sub 1000 CC

3) Maybe a Polaris/Victory/Indian Scout engine will come along.

Black '11 XC, Vance & Hines Hi-Flow muflers,
Lloydz Air Filter & ATS (+4)

1.) Project 200 is dead....Victory also has an electric bike competing at the Isle of Man TT.

2.) Most bikes are sub 1Kcc. The used to be dominant HD is a 750.

3.) The Project 156 cited above is using a liquid cooled variant of the Scout engine.

Thanks for the info !

As you noted..the HD XR750 was king for a long time, but lately been getting spanked by a 650 Kaw. And Triumph has started winning a few here & there. Hopefully this will lead to advancements by HD, then advancements by ??...and so on....outcome ?...should be better racing !

Nursing a wounded foot this year...but hope to make [all] the Mile races next season. And will keep an eye on Pikes-Peak date, as I have never seen it...but would like too.
