Indian Motorcycle Racing and the Scout FTR750 captured its fourth sweep of the season at the OKC Mile held at Remington Park. They remained undefeated throughout all eight races.
Jared Mees snuck up from behind just before the final lap to pass Wrecking Crew teammate, Brad Baker. Similar to his victory at Red Mile, Mees remained close behind Baker only to sneak past him while both riders fought to navigate a sea of slower riders in the final laps. Throughout the majority of the main event, Baker had a seemingly insurmountable lead. The victory was Mees’ second straight, propelling him to 177 points and the overall AFT Twins lead.
Reigning Grand National Champ and Indian Wrecking Crew member, Bryan Smith, cleared the sweep by capturing third, keeping him second in the overall standings.
The Scout FTR750 and Indian Wrecking Crew were untouchable at the OKC Mile. From the heats through the main event, each rider easily managed to win their respective heat and capturing top positions during semi runs.
“Our team is on a great run right now. It’s evident we have the most talented group of riders, and the Scout FTR750 is the top-performing motorcycle in the field,” said Mees. “Brad clearly had the field beat throughout the race, and it looked like he would go wire-to-wire, but I hung in there, dug deep and found my opening as we lapped the pack.”
Indian Motorcycle Racing, backed by Allstate Insurance, will look to continue its incredible run as American Flat Track heads to the Lima Half-Mile at Allen County Fairgrounds in Lima, Ohio on June 24.
“We cannot say enough about our factory team riders’ dedication, and the sophistication and capability of our Indian Scout FTR750,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Product Development for Indian Motorcycle. “Even though they’re outpacing the field, our guys are remaining fiercely competitive with each other, pushing for individual titles and the ultimate manufacturer title.”
