Defending AFT Twins Champion Jared Mees Earns Fourth Victory of Season;
Points Leader Briar Bauman Records 10th Podium Finish of Season with Second-Place Finish;
Indian Motorcycle Privateer Davis Fisher Secures First-Career Twins Class Podium
SACRAMENTO, CA (AUGUST 10, 2019) – Indian Motorcycle Racing, presented by Progressive Motorcycle Insurance, and its championship-winning FTR750 secured its sixth podium sweep of the 2019 season. Reigning back-to-back AFT Twins Champion Jared Mees displayed his dominance over the field by holding off his Wrecking Crew Teammate Briar Bauman to win the Sacramento Mile. Bauman, the current Twins points leader, finished second, while Indian Motorcycle Privateer Davis Fisher rounded out the podium with his first-career Twins podium.
The Sacramento Mile was a gritty battle between Wrecking Crew teammates Mees and Bauman down the stretch. Mees seemingly held firm control over the Main until the defiant Twins points leader chose to take matters into his own hands and overtook the defending champion. However, Mees rallied to regain the lead and kept Bauman at bay to narrowly escape with the victory, despite one last-ditch effort from Bauman.
“Just as Briar bounced back from the Buffalo Chip TT with a win at the Black Hills Half-Mile, Jared returns to the top of the box in Sacramento after a tough finish in Rapid City,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle. “With six races left, Jared reminds us all he’s the reigning back-to-back champion and he’s not going to let Briar run away on the leaderboard.”
With seven races remaining in the season, the Indian Motorcycle Wrecking crew currently sits atop the points standings with Briar Bauman in first with 218 points, Jared Mees in second with 191 points and Bronson Bauman in third with 163 points. As was evident this past weekend, the race for the top spot in the Twins class is heating up and the three relentless riders are looking to continue their dominance over the field.
