K&N sponsored rider Sammy Halbert put his vintage Harley Davidson XR 750 to the test. “At the last WCVDTS event I led the first 19 of 20 laps in the final,’ said Halbert. “I was really motivated to make sure I led the last lap this time around.”

Track organizers put down a load of dirt on the track and Halbert took advantage of it. “I was in the second heat race and pulled a nice holeshot and never looked back,” he said. “I had the fastest heat times of the day.”
That was good news because it put him on the pole for the $1,000 Dash for Cash event. Halbert won and he was ready for the 20 lap Open Pro main event.
“I put my head down and rode like a maniac,” he said. “I threw my big XR aggressively into the turns in a two wheel slide. When I would let off the gas the front tire would push like a dump-truck. I had to stay on the throttle and away I went.”
Halbert said he was having too much fun to slow down since the track was in perfect shape. ‘I finally looked back coming off turn two to see how big my lead was and I didn’t see anybody back there,” he said. “I did a double take and looked further back and there they were. Finally I saw the checkered and it was all mine for the win.”
Halbert has raced for 11 years and uses K&N products. “My
worked great as always,” he said. “The filter covers kept the loose dirt from packing onto my filters. I have used K&N for as long as I can remember. With K&N we notice a noticeable performance gain.”
The AMA Grand National Flat Track Championship resumes May 23-24 in Springfield, Illinois.
