AMA Flat Track: Jared Mees, Blue Springs H-D & The Fast and Bring You More Knoxville Half-Mile Video

Crew chief and head tech, Brent Armbruster rolls the #9 Rogers Lake Racing/Blue Springs H-D/Screamin' Eagle/Lucas Oil-sponsored H-D XR750 of rider Jared Mees through the AMA Pro Flat Track tech line, minutes after The Jammer had won heat 2 at the Springfield Mile II on September 4, round 16 of the 2011 AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship Series.  Mees and the Rogers Lake Racing team later went on to win the Dash for Cash event and brought the sparkling blue & burnt orange XR home in the 5th spot during the National main for the day after what was a two-part 21- and 5-lap dash to the checkered flag after a short red flag delay in the program.  Mees finished the Springfield Mile II round just .261 seconds behind event and first-time winner Willie McCoy on the hot and windy Illinois State Fairgrounds mile oval.

Heading to the Knoxville Raceway for the next weekend's event, round 17 of the series' season, Mees duplicated his wins in heat 2 and the Dash for Cash event, and then went on to win what is being called the closest-ever finish in an AMA Grand National Championship Series event over title rival Jake Johnson by just .0004 seconds in a virtual dead heat checkered flag finish.  It was Mees' fourth win of the season, and he would grab the overall points standing lead over season-long leader Sammy Halbert for his efforts.

Mees and the team have proven to be a sponsor's marketing dream throughout the season (and in all likelihood only second to Halbert in terms of media exposure) in releasing photos, press releases and videos highlighting their great season together.  The 2009 AMA Grand National Twins Series Champion and his Brent Armbruster-wrenched XRs have been a threat on and off the track all season, whether it be in the Singles or the Twins Series (where he has now won five events on the year.)  And although The Jammer failed to score a win in the Singles Series on the year, his string of podiums and top 5s on the year has also been spectacular by anyone's standards for the year.

Thanks to Jared Mees, Blue Springs H-D and Will & Yve from The Fast and for this excellent wrap-up video from the Knoxville Half-Mile, round 17 of the 2011 AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship Series:
