On behalf of Weirbach Racing - OTTUMWA, IA (November 20, 2018) - Weirbach Racing is pleased to announce the 2019 American Flat Track sponsorship support of Max Whale in the AFT Singles class, aboard the new 2019 Kawasaki KX450.

17-year-old Max Whale from Coondoo QLD, Australia has accomplished much in his young career, and displayed his developing talent during his introductory year in the AFT Singles class in 2018. Max finished the year 14th in the series standings, an impressive run considering he missed two rounds due to an injury mid-season. Whale had several top-10 finishes, including a fifth place finish at the OKC Mile and finish of fourth at the Williams Grove Half-Mile.

"I am really excited to join Weirbach Racing for the 2019 season," said Whale of his upcoming season. "I'm looking forward to working with a great group of guys with plenty of experience. My goals for 2019 are to run in the top 5 consistently and to reach the top step of the podium at a national race." He added, "I'm thrilled to be riding the 2019 Kawasaki KX450; this is the best KX I've ever ridden. With a year underneath my belt in the AFT series I'm ready to build on that experience and keep progressing."

Ted Weirbach commented, "We are honored to work with Max. He is a great young talent with solid character and a joy to be around. He showed the ability to adapt to all types of tracks and most impressively, he qualified really well all year. If you want to run up front you have to be fast all day and Max seems to have that part figured out."

Weirbach Racing also plans to continue its support of Modesto California's Michael Inderbitzen for select races in the AFT Production Twins class. In the 2018 events of this expanding class, Inderbitzen book-ended the summer with wins aboard the Weirbach Racing Kawasaki twins at both Springfield Miles.

The team is busy building, preparing and testing motorcycles over the winter months, with its sights aimed at a successful 2019 season.

Dick Weirbach stated, "We continue to strive to provide the best equipment and opportunities for up and coming riders. I believe the changes to the series and expanding class structure affords that, and I am looking forward to a great year. "
