Recent Wins Put Saddlemen-Sponsored Rider Into The Lead In Flat Track Racing's Grand National Championship Field

Saddlemen racer Jared Mees nailed another win on his Rogers Lake Racing/Blue Springs Harley-Davidson XR750 at Hartford Motor Speedway’s first-ever half-mile flat-track race of the AMA Harley-Davidson Grand National Championship in Hartford, Michigan on June 11th.

It was just two weeks ago when Mees, the 2009 AMA Pro Twins Champion, won the historic Springfield Mile. He also came within one spot of making history by almost winning the famous Springfield TT national on his Honda CRF450. With his victory at Hanford he sits firmly on top of the Twin series point tally with a 14 point margin and is in a pitched Grand National Championship battle with series leader Sammy Halbert and fellow racer Jake Johnson.

With this win and regional short track wins during the off week, Mees is reaffirming his strengths as an all-around racer. Certainly, with national wins on mile and half-mile tracks and a second on the TT within the last three weeks he’s proving to be a force to be reckoned with regardless of the distance or machinery.

In the main event Mees, beat runner up Kenny Coolbeth by a tick over three seconds – quite a distance in the hotly contested event. Meese is now on tap to buy dinner for Saddlemen President Tom Seymour (who is arguably Jared’s biggest supporter) by winning the night’s points-paying Dash-for-Cash over the Kawasaki of Johnny Lewis.
