Indian Motorcycle Wins AFT at Senoia

Indian Motorcycle Racing, presented by Progressive Motorcycle Insurance, secured its first win of the 2023 American Flat Track season. It followed a nail-biting performance by reigning SuperTwins Champ and Indian Motorcycle Wrecking Crew rider Jared Mees. Piloting the Indian FTR750, Mees and Dallas Daniels went head-to-head at the Senoia Short Track. The exciting Main event ended with Mees passing the finish line .174 seconds before Daniels.

Having missed the podium at the season-opening doubleheader in Daytona, Mees arrived at Senoia Raceway seeking redemption. After securing the top qualifying position, he took advantage of his prime starting position during the Main event. Though he relinquished the lead to Daniels around the halfway point, the bar-to-bar battle continued into the final lap. Mees ultimately took control and edged out Daniels and captured his first win of the 2023 season.

Bouncing Back

“This was the bounce-back performance Jared needed, and we all expected,” said Gary Gray, Vice President Racing, Service & Technology for Indian Motorcycle. “Though it’s early in the season, Jared came into the race with a must-win mentality, as he fully understands the importance of keeping the points close as he competes for his ninth career championship.”

Mees’ win and two fourth place finishes rank him 14 points behind Daniels, who sits atop the season leaderboard. Having won four of the last six SuperTwins championships aboard the Indian FTR750, Mees is now just one shy from his personal career goal to reach Scottie Parker’s record of nine championships. Mees has more than 60 career wins and multiple records.

The 2023 American Flat Track season continues April 1 for the Arizona Super TT at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, AZ. For more information on Indian Motorcycle Racing, visit IndianMotorcycle.com and follow along on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
