Defending Champion Jared Mees Secures First Victory of the Season; Fellow Wrecking Crew Rider Briar Bauman & Indian Motorcycle Privateer Brandon Robinson Finish Second and Third at Texas Half-Mile

FORT WORTH, TX. (April 22, 2019) – Indian Motorcycle Racing, presented by Progressive
Motorcycle Insurance, continued its torrid start to the season, as the FTR750 secured
its second podium sweep of the season at the Texas Half-Mile. Back-to-back
reigning Grand National Champion Jared Mees collected his first win of the 2019
season, while Wrecking Crew teammate Briar Bauman finished second, and Indian Motorcycle
Privateer Brandon Robinson (Kennedy Racing/Armbruster Racing Indian FTR750) rounded
out the podium with a third-place finish.

Mees and Bauman separated
themselves from the field almost immediately at the start of the race. The two
teammates spent the majority of the race jockeying for position atop the
leaderboard. After a series of lead changes throughout the early stages, Mees
managed to create some separation from Bauman in lap 22 and did not relinquish
his lead again. With his first victory of the season, Mees was able to move
himself up to third on the championship leaderboard.

“We are thrilled to see Jared get
his first win of the season and make up some ground to stay near the top of the
leaderboard,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service
for Indian Motorcycle. “If this race was any indication, this is going to be an
exciting season to watch Jared and Briar push each other to new heights the
rest of the year.”

Mees’ victory snaps a seven-race
winless streak and moves him into second on the all-time win list for
Half-Miles. For Bauman, the second-place finish continues a strong start to the
season that has seen him reach the podium in all three races, including a
victory at the Daytona TT. His impressive start has him atop the leaderboard
with 62 points followed by Robinson and Mees with 53 and 47 points
respectively. Fellow Wrecking Crew Rider Bronson Bauman currently finds himself
in eleventh with 24 total points.

The season continues on April 27 with Arizona Super TT in Chandler,
Arizona. For more information on
