DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Richie Morris Racing has signed AFT Twins rider Davis Fisher, who will join the team for the remainder of the American Flat Track season.

Fisher and Richie Morris Racing will have support from Double D’s Performance Indian Motorcycle of Scottsdale, Ariz.

After a tough rookie season in the Twins class as a development rider, the 2015 AFT Singles champion has run his own program, showing flashes of brilliance with multiple top-10 finishes, just missing the podium in Lima, Ohio, last year.

Just last weekend Fisher had an excellent debut on the Indian Scout FTR 750 at the Calistoga Half-Mile. He won his Heat and Semi, set fast time on the night to start from pole and ended the night with a fifth-place finish. The 20-year-old now has his sights set on his first AFT Twins win aboard the RMR/Double D’s Performance Indian Scout FTR750.

“It feels great to join the RMR/Double D’s Performance team,” said Fisher. “Last year I started running my own program with the help of Bob Lanphere’s Beaverton Motorcycles and Dick Wall 60, but Richie hit me up about the opportunity to ride for the team, and I couldn’t turn it down. I’m really excited. It takes a lot of stress off me and allows me to focus on racing instead of the added pressure of traveling to each race and prepping the bike myself each week.”

For team principal Richie Morris, all the pieces finally came together to facilitate a competitive program in the AFT Twins class to complement his successful AFT Singles program.

“We are delighted to join forces with Charlie (Yakich) at Double D’s Performance Indian Motorcycle out of Scottsdale Arizona!” Morris said. “We have been working hard to put together a competitive program on the AFT Twins side, and thanks to Double D’s Indian and Hideaway at Cave Creek, we have accomplished just that.

“Davis and I kind of found each other at the right time,” Morris added. “I’m happy to have the 2015 AFT Singles Champion in Davis and the 2016 AFT Singles Champion in Ryan [Wells] on our team. Now we have two proven young riders to look downstream at wins and championships for RMR and partners.”
