After finishing 6th and 7th at the Williams Grove Speedway in Pennsylvania, Lewis was continuing development of the Royal Enfield Twins FT in Texas when an unexpected valve issue forced his weekend to end early.

Working closely with several partners, the Moto Anatomy x Royal Enfield team tested a number of new parts and setups in the lead up to last weekend's races.

"We've been able to make positive steps forward with the Twins FT in the last two weeks, and there is still much to learn," said Johnny Lewis, Moto Anatomy x Royal Enfield racer. "The team is still 100 per cent focused on development and we understand more every time we run the bike. We know what happened and the team is already hard at work on adjustments and new parts so we're ready for the Atlanta Short Track event."

The next weekend's races of the American Flat Track series will be held at Dixie Speedway in Atlanta, where Lewis will be looking for redemption with more improvements to the RE Twins FT. This is Royal Enfield's first ever American Flat Track competition in the Production Twins class.
