Mees Narrows Title Fight with Atlanta Double

Daniels proves unstoppable; The Rocket Rispoli returns to the front.

WOODSTOCK, Ga. (October 3, 2020) – Jared Mees (No. 9 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750) doubled up at Dixie Speedway with a second barn-burning Progressive American Flat Track victory in Saturday night’s Yamaha Atlanta Short Track presented by Law Tigers II.

While Mees was forced to overcome his great rival, defending Grand National Champion Briar Bauman (No. 1 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750), to win on Friday night in Woodstock, Georgia, Saturday’s challenge came from a more unexpected source: young rising star Brandon Price (No. 92 Roof Systems of Dallas, Texas Indian FTR750).

Despite their contrasting résumé, that test proved no less stiff; the up-and-comer gave the masterful Mees all he could handle.

Price actually led the bulk of the race, deftly corralling a racey Mees behind him despite the multi-time series king’s repeated attempts to fight his way through. At one point, Mees’ overtaking maneuver sent him up into the wall, jamming the factory Indian rider’s footpeg into his own brake.

At that moment, it seemed like Price might power away to an easy win, but Mees regrouped, adjusted and mounted another assault. Their vast difference in experience didn’t factor in until after the countdown clocks hit zero, at which point Mees executed a tough-but-fair pass to lead the final two laps and win by 0.339 seconds.

“Early on, I thought I could just settle in and get by, but I don’t know…” Mees admitted. “(Price) was probably getting a little tense at the end because I was throwing everything I could at him. I threw him some bait in Turn 1 where I was acting like I was coming real high and just sliced across the middle and threw in a little block pass.

“It was a great race. I can’t say enough for my team. We’re going to just keep plugging one race at a time. We’re not out of this yet. We’re going to fight back as best we can and what the points are at the end is what they are.”

Meanwhile, title leader Bauman slashed his way forward from an early seventh to finish a lonely third some two-and-a-half seconds back.

Sammy Halbert (No. 69 Coolbeth-Nila Racing Indian FTR750) finished in fourth another second in arrears, with an injured Brandon Robinson (No. 44 HCRR Racing/Ben Evans Racing Indian FTR750) registering a gritty ride to round out the top five.

Mees’ Atlanta double provided his title hopes a major boost; he now trails Bauman by just 12 points (256-244) with four races remaining to decide the 2020 AFT SuperTwins presented by Vance & Hines Championship.

AFT Singles presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys

AFT Singles presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys title favorite Dallas Daniels (No. 32 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F) out-dueled Morgen Mischler (No. 13 Roof Systems DFW/Duffy Fleet Services KTM 450 SX-F) in an Atlanta Short Track rematch that may have been even more spectacular than their Friday epic.

Mischler and Daniels shook free from the pack in the early stages of the race and then set about resuming last night’s dogfight. In contrast to the previous round, however, Mischler maintained a slight advantage for almost the entire race, with Daniels trying out his lines and (apparently) biding his time just behind.

He finally struck with only a half lap remaining. The two actually made contact on the back straight with Daniels then forcing his way underneath as they dove into Turn 3 for the final time. Mischler attempted to square the corner back up and take advantage of a small slip on Daniels’ part, but came up just 0.090 seconds short at the flag.

Daniels said, “I wasn’t holding back, I wasn’t trying to not show him what I was doing. That was literally all I had. It was kind of making me nervous; I was pretty much tapped out and I needed a mistake from him, which is what happened. Coming off of (Turn) 2, he spun up a little bit and we got together. I took that thing off into 3 harder than I did all day, just hoping it would stick and it did. It’s awesome.”

Aussie Max Whale (No. 18 Coondoo Cattle Co./Australian Road Services Kawasaki KX450F) won out in a similar shootout with super sophomore Brandon Kitchen (No. 105 Donley Excavating/TCD Suspension Honda CRF450F) to earn the final spot on the podium.

Class legend Shayna Texter (No. 52 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing 450 SX-F) bounced back from a disappointing outing on Friday to complete the top five.

As a result of Daniels’ seventh win of the season, the 17-year-old prodigy now leads the championship by 70 points (233-163) over Wiles and Whale, while Rush has dropped to fourth with 151 points. Should Daniels up his current win streak to six next Friday night, he’ll be crowned the 2020 AFT Singles presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys champion three races early.

AFT Production Twins

Saturday’s AFT Production Twins Main saw 2020 championship leader James Rispoli (No. 43 Latus Motors Racing Harley-Davidson XG750R) outlast defending class champion Cory Texter (No. 1 G&G Racing/Roof Systems Yamaha MT-07) in a race-long straight fight.

The two quickly separated from the field and raced side-by-side for virtually the entire six-minute plus two lap affair. Rispoli ran the high line while Texter controlled the low line, and rarely did either rider demonstrate a clear advantage in their battle.

Rispoli turned it on late, sliding just out in front as the clock showed 0:00, and that’s where he’d remain to the checkered flag.

The victory placed Rispoli right back up on top of the box just one day after Texter brought his five-race win streak to a conclusion.

Afterward, a typically enthusiastic Rispoli said, “Cory has been riding out of his shoes this weekend — just so well. I don’t know how you can’t love that racing, me and Cory just going back and forth the entire race. He committed to the low and I committed to the high every lap. He’d just give me a skosh of space. At the end of the day, we got just a little bit of breathing room and I hit the low line and brought it home.”

Once Ryan Varnes (No. 68 RVR/RoyBuilt Don’s Kawasaki Ninja 650 dropped from third due to a mechanical, Chad Cose (No. 49 Wally Brown Racing Harley-Davidson XG750R) assumed the position and spent the remainder of the race with his head down in pursuit of the Rispoli-Texter duel.

Clawing his way back from approximately two seconds back, Cose arrived right on their rear wheels just in time to see the two cross the stripe a few tenths ahead of him.

Danny Eslick (No. 64 Scott Powersports/R&D Machine Kawasaki Ninja 650) won out in a multi-rider scrap for fourth, taking the checkered flag just ahead of Michael Inderbitzin (No. 54 Weirbach Racing/Rekluse Kawasaki Ninja 650) and Ben Lowe (No. 25 Roof Systems of Dallas/Bruce Lowe Excavating Yamaha MT-07).

Rispoli now leads by 48 points (269-221). That means if he gains just two more points on Texter next weekend, he’ll accomplish his stated goal of locking up the class championship ahead of the DAYTONA finale.

The Yamaha Atlanta Short Track presented by Law Tigers I & II will air back-to-back on NBCSN on Saturday, October 10, starting at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.
