Mees Takes Title, Makes History2017-09-12 20:50
Jared Mees made history this weekend by winning the
American Flat Track Williams Grove Half Mile round, and locking up the AFT
Twins championship on his Indian Motorcycle Rogers Racing Scout FTR750 with
two rounds still to go. It was Mees’ ninth win of the season, and the first
time in history the Indian brand won the Grand National Championship title.
“We had a phenomenal year,” said Mees. “I had a magnificent team behind me.
I don’t know what else to say. I give all the credit to those guys. They
work so hard week-in and week-out. The Indian was a phenomenal motorcycle
for me from start to finish. It’s unbelievable.”
After his championship rival and teammate Bryan Smith crashed out of the
race, all Mees needed was four points to lock up the title. He didn’t take
the easy way: he led his other teammate Brad Baker across the line by 0.22
seconds to take the win and the championship.
