Kawasaki's Henry Wiles Captures Fourth Win at Springfield TT

2012-05-30 11:00
The AMA Pro Grand National Championship stopped at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield, Ill., for Round 3 at the historic Springfield TT. Don’s Kawasaki’s Henry Wiles overcame the challenging TT track to claim his fourth win at the Springfield TT aboard his KX™450F in the GNC Expert Singles class. The win marked his 21st Grand National victory.

Racing Himself
Although Wiles’ season hasn’t started the way he wanted, he is always a threat when the series arrives in Springfield. Wiles wasn’t the fastest in qualifying, but once it came to the race, he couldn’t be touched. His lap time was the fastest of the heat races and he was feeling confident going into the 25-lap main event. Wiles got out front early and continued to push the envelope on his KX450F until no one could keep pace, eventually winning by almost 4 seconds. Wiles’ win jumps him up to eighth in the GNC Expert Singles points standings.
