Henry Wiles picked up his seventh consecutive victory on Sunday at the famed Peoria Motorcycle Club racetrack. Wiles had reconstructive surgery on his left knee just four months ago. His seven-race win streak is second only to Chris Carr’s eight wins in a row from 1988-1995. And it’s tied for second on the all-time win list with Joe Leonard, who won seven TT’s between 1953 and 1961. Carr, who finished sixth in his final Peoria TT, has won the August Grand National race a record 13 times. Jared Mees finished second 1.59 seconds behind Wiles, Sammy Halbert finished third while Jake Johnson took fourth place and Morton, IL rider Rob Pearson was fifth. Most of the riders wore special Gary Nixon jerseys to commemorate to death of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer.
