Reigning Champion Jared Mees, Indian Privateer Kenny Coolbeth Jr. & Wrecking Crew Rider Bryan Smith
SACRAMENTO, CA (May 21, 2018) – Indian Motorcycle Racing’s Scout FTR750 continues its dominance
in American Flat Track (AFT) racing – sweeping the top seven positions at the Sacramento Mile. Reigning
Grand National Champion Jared Mees again takes the top position, with Nila Racing/Columbia Avionics
privateer Kenny Coolbeth Jr. securing second place, and Wrecking Crew rider Bryan Smith placing third.
The podium sweep marks the third consecutive race of an all Scout FTR750 podium.
In typical Mees fashion, he quickly worked his way to the front and remained in the first-place position
through the 25 laps. Coolbeth worked his way to third place from a challenging position, finally holding
the second-place spot. Smith returned to the dirt track after breaking his left fibula during a Semi Final
race at the Texas Half-Mile on April 28 and secured his best finish of the season.
“It feels great to finally get the win at the legendary Sacramento Mile. This has been a track I have
desperately wanted for many years,” said Mees. “The Indian Scout FTR750 once again proved it’s the
best bike on the track – this time taking the top seven spots.”
Wrecking Crew rider Brad Baker finished fourth, while Indian Motorcycle privateers Henry Wiles (Wilco
Racing/Willy Built/Bandit Industries), Davis Fisher (No. 67 RMR/Double D Performance) and Chad
Cose (Indian Motorcycle of Oklahoma City), placed fifth, sixth and seventh, respectively.
“It was another thrilling night to see all seven of the Scout FTR750s lead the board,” said Gary Gray, Vice
President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle. “We were impressed to see Smith make
such a quick comeback and finish third after breaking his leg just weeks ago.”
Through the six races this season, Mees continues to sit atop of the leaderboard with 125 points and five
wins, while Wiles ranks second with 89 points. Baker, Coolbeth, Fisher and Jeffrey Carver Jr. currently sit
fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh place, respectively.
The Indian Wrecking Crew and stable of privateers aboard the Scout FTR750 will continue its season on
May 27 at the Springfield Mile. For more information on Indian Motorcycle Racing, backed by Allstate
