AMA Flat Track: Jared Mees & Blue Springs H-D, Along with The Fast and Dirty.com Bring You Up to Date With Video From Lake Odessa Half-Mile

Jared Mees on his #9 Rogers Lake/Blue Springs H-D/Lucas Oil/Saddlemen-backed H-D XR-750 waits for the signal from AMA Pro Flat Track officials to get ready to roll out for practice at the Lake Odessa Half-Mile round at I-96 Speedway on July 23.  Round 11 of the 2011 AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship Series saw The Rolling Thunder Show back for more action in the Twins Series, and the overall championship point standings get even closer for the top 3 candidates in the fight for the 2011 AMA Grand National Championship.

Mees and his Rogers Lake/Blue Springs H-D crew showed up with a transporter-load of pristine XR-750s, any which of the three would look to be ready for battle in the greatest show in racing in the world.  Moving back and forth between two of the machines, Mees ran solid all night starting with his 3rd qualifying spot, a 2nd place in his heat (behind winner and championship contender, Jake Johnson), and another 2nd in the Dash event (again, behind Dash winner Johnson.)  But come race time, Jared went to the front and in the end held off Bryan Smith #42 and Johnson for his third win of the season, and third in the last six races on the schedule.

And with the series headed to Castle Rock for this weekend's TT-event in the Washington State, there is no reason to think that The Jammer will do any worse on his Singles Series mounts, either.  At the last Singles event at the Springfield TT, he came home 2nd to winner Johnson.  And with Sammy Halbert #7 still just out front in the points battle, the run for the roses is starting to heat up.  And Jared Mees and his team are right in the thick of it.

Here's the link to Jared Mees, Blue Springs H-D and The Fast and Dirty.com's video from round 11 at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, MI.  Also I included their intro to the video from the link at You Tube.com, as you might miss the write-up to the great footage!  Thanks to Will and Yve at The Fast and Dirty.com for putting together another great round of action and updates from the 2011 AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship Series.

Flat Track is America's original motorcycle sport, and a fledgling Harley-Davidson established itself by winning races on board track ovals in the 1920's. As speeds topped 100mph, the races were moved to dirt or flat ovals, marking the birth of Flat Track as we see it today. The AMA Grand National Championship series was established in 1954, and Harley-Davidson has been the dominant manufacturer for nearly half a century, winning 45 of 57 GNC Titles.
