Flat Track Racing. Indian Motorcycle Racing And The Scout FTR750 Remain Undefeated After 7 Races.

Jared Mees’ first place finish now ties him with fellow Indian rider Bryan Smith at the top of the points pole with 152 apiece, and continues Indian’s streak of securing at least two podium placements in each race this season. The Scout FTR750 and Indian Wrecking Crew proved resilient during the first race in which Indian was nearly knocked off the top position. Mees employed the strategy of mile expert Smith by drafting from second position only to pull a last second outside pass on the final lap to inch out Sammy Halbert by 0.013 of a second for the checkered flag. Indian’s Brad Baker and Smith duked it out throughout the race to finish third and fourth respectively.

Mees is now the only rider in the series with a perfect podium record intact on the season. Although tied atop the points standings, Smith holds the tie-breaker with four wins to Mees’ three. Baker, who took third at Red Mile, sits in fourth with 92 points, 17 points off third place.

“This streak is a testament to the incredible capabilities of the purpose-build Scout FTR750 and the modern day ‘Wrecking Crew’ we’ve assembled,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Product Development for Indian Motorcycle. “Jared and Bryan are fierce competitors, and once again their rivalry is taking center stage this season.”

Indian Motorcycle Racing, backed by Allstate Insurance, will look to continue its incredible run as American Flat Track heads to the OKC Mile in Oklahoma City, OK, on June 17.

    Pretty damn awesome for a new team and new platform.

    Sad to say the XR-750 has seen her last days.

    The XR 750 would have seen its demise years ago if the AMA and Harley Davidson were not conjoined by the hip .. New owners and a new vision.

    I wish I could find some videos of these races. Every time I search, the only vids I find are significantly older and/or different classes. Anyone out there have a link? The AMA site doesn’t have anything current either. Only written articles. Thanks in advance. I’ll check back later. Shane

    Indian is really putting the hurt on H-D on the track this year. One would hope it would motivate Harley to make their bike better.

    Back in the golden days of motorcycling and motorsports the old win on Sunday sell on Monday slogan was true. Today one can’t buy anything even close to what the Wrecking Crew is piloting. A few years back Harley made a pretty sweet 1200 Sportster that was supposed to resemble the race bike I was at Springfield when Willie G.unveiled it and it was not bad but still fell short. I feel a more proper street tracker could have been made for much less money. For starters they should start with the most stripped down basic 883 equipped with just enough to make it legal but look like a race bike, then sell all the Screaming Eagle go fast goodies thru the dealership. Indian could follow suit with their little Scout 60. If you ask me those new Triumphs are just begging to be made into street trackers not to mention the Ducati scrambler and a few of the Yamahas. Damn why did I have to get to be an old man so soon!!!

    Hillbilly Jim! Until you leave this earth you are still in the game! I think you are onto something and surely some younger riders and wrenches get it as well -;0)

    Actually, Hillbilly Jim, if you got 50 large laying around, you can walk into any Indian dealership, plunk down your cash, and they’ll be glad to sell you an FTR 750 Scout.
    A few of them, like Indian Motorcycle Charlotte, actually have one sitting in the dealership, ready to roll.

    However, rumors abound that in the wake of their huge flat track success, there are plans afoot to roll out a Scrambler-type bike, based on the FTR.

    I certainly hope that is true, because if they can price it reasonably. they’d sell like hotcakes.

    Prime candidate to buy a new scrambler if they decide to make one I have a chief black horse right now chieftan but looking for something a little lighter and smaller that doesn’t have forward controls going on 78 now but I still have the desire to go fast and Ride Hard of course which I do I like this informational site Steve
