MECHANICSBURG, PA. (SEPTEMBER 7, 2019) – Indian Motorcycle Racing, presented by Progressive Motorcycle Insurance, and its championship-winning FTR750 earned its 14th win of the 2019 American Flat Track (AFT) season at the Williams Grove Half-Mile in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Indian Wrecking Crew Rider and current points leader Briar Bauman secured his fifth win of the season, while Indian Motorcycle Privateers Brandon Price and Davis Fisher placed second and third, respectfully.

Near the half way point, Bauman maintained a one-second lead ahead of Price, which he retained until the finish. Mees finished the race in fourth, and is now 35 points behind Bauman, who leads the series with 305 total points.
“Briar continues to showcase his talent and determination to win a Twins championship,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle. “He’s maintained his focus throughout the entire season and is running his best races we’ve ever seen.”
