Briar Bauman Wins 2019 American Flat Track Season Opener at Daytona TT

Share

Indian Motorcycle Racing opened up the 2019 American Flat Track (AFT) season with a first-place finish at the Daytona TT during last week’s Daytona Bike Week festivities. Briar Bauman, in his Indian Motorcycle debut, took home the top-podium finish aboard his FTR750.

The AFT opener featured plenty of high-stakes drama, with Bauman taking an early lead and having to stave off a resilient surge from Indian Motorcycle privateer Henry Wiles, who placed second.

Fellow Wrecking Crew rider Bronson Bauman raced to a fifth-place finish, while the back-to-back reigning Grand National Champion Jared Mees salvaged a Main event qualifier after uncharacteristically hitting the dirt twice during the Semi. Mees made a strong push early in the Main and was running in fifth, until a mechanical issue ended his night early.

The second race of the season kicks off next weekend with the Atlanta Short Track at Dixie Speedway on March 24.
