Alongside Bauman, Indian Motorcycle privateer Brandon Price and Wrecking Crew rider Jared Mees rounded out the podium. They finished second and third, respectively.
Fans attending the inaugural Port Royal Half-Mile witnessed an exciting close to the SuperTwins Main. Bauman and Price battled for the win. Starting from the second row, Bauman found a line on the track that gave him an edge and made his way to the front of the pack. With just two laps remaining, Bauman came out of his high line and carried his momentum past Price. Bauman then led the remaining laps past the checkered flag.
“This was a big win for Briar, as he again reminded us all why he’s the two-time defending champion,” said Gary Gray, Vice President Racing, Service & Technology. “After Mees edged him out in the Semi, Briar came into the Main knowing he had some ground to make up. His determination and precision on the high line truly exemplified his racing prowess.”
