Twenty eight year old Winn, Michigan Expert Pro TT rider Henry Wiles has become the new fan favorite in Peoria, Illinois, as he’s been the clear-cut winner for ninet straight years (breaking Chris Carr’s record of eight) as he continues his dominance at historic PMC Race Park. Wiles had to start in the third row of the 25 lap main event. Second and third place finishers, Brad Baker and JD Beach made several attempts at closing the gap during the race, but unfortunately for them, Wiles never gave an inch and diminished any hope they might have had in catching him. Shaun Russell and Briar Bauman rounded out the top five in the Expert Pro main event. Rodney Spencer Jr. won the Pro Singles race for his first win as Dan Bromley was second followed by Justin Jones. Brad Baker took a $1,000 prize for winning the Dash-for-Cash race.

Winn, Michigan Expert Pro TT rider Henry Wiles has become the new fan favorite in Peoria, Illinois, as he’s been the clear-cut winner for eight straight years (tying Chris Carr) as he continues his dominance at historic PMC Race Park. Second and third place finishers, Jared Mees and Jake Johnson made several attempts at closing the gap during the race, but unfortunately for them, Wiles never gave an inch and diminished any hope they might have had in catching him. JD Beach and last week’s winner Sammy Halbert rounded out the top five in the Expert Pro main event. Pole sitter Dominic Colindres got off to an incredible start in the AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com Pro Singles main event, but it was erased as a four-bike pile-up on lap two forced the red flags to come out and demand a restart. However, the restart had no effect on Collindres as he got the holeshot for the second time and never looked back on his way to victory. There was no denying Collindres as he was won by more than a full second over second-place finisher Stephen Vanderkuur. Justin Reed claimed third place with a solid performance on the KTM 450 SX-F.
