AMA Flat Track: 28th Annual Dairyland Classic in Plymouth, WI Scheduled for Friday, June 1
Jared Mees works about his pit area just before taking to the track for round 7 of the 2011 AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Motorcycle-Superstore.com season at the Springfield TT on May 30. Tuner Brent Armbruster can be seen sitting next to Mees' Honda.
Mees had a stellar day at the Illinois State Fairgrounds Multipurpose Rodeo Arena in winning his heat, and coming home in 2nd-place in the Dash for Cash event, and later in the day taking his #9 Montgomeryville Cycle Center/Lucas Oil/Rogers Lake Racing/Saddlemen-sponsored Honda CRF450R to the runner-up spot in the National main behind event-winner Jake Johnson.
Mees would go on to clinch the 2011 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship Twins Series Championship, to go along with his '09 title, and would finish runner-up again to Johnson in the '11 AMA Grand National Championship title hunt.
One of the busiest and hardest-working men at and on the track, Jammin' Jared will look to add to his three race win streak at the 28th Annual Dairyland Classic AMA Flat Track event coming up on Friday, June 1 at the Sheboygan County Fair Park in Plymouth, WI.
Historically scheduled around the AMA Pro Road Racing round at Road America in early June, the event can all but be considered a 'mini' National, with last year's attendees including Sammy Halbert, Jethro Halbert, Chris Carr, Kenny Coolbeth, Jimmy Wood and Mikey Avila all making the Pro/Expert Main event before a solid crowd. The races have also been shown over the course of the last couple of years on a tape-delayed basis on SpeedTV's Lucas Oil Motorsports show.
If you're headed to Road America for the AMA Pro Road Racing weekend, make sure you take the time to head down to Plymouth for the Dairyland Classic. The Sheboygan County Fair Park is located just five miles south of Road America, so it is within easy access to the road race events happening just outside of Elkhart Lake, WI.
