AFT star Johnny Lewis wow’s the crowds with FTR750
Pro-class battle heats-up
UNITED KINGDOM – The Indian Motorcycle Flat Track series, presented by the Dirt Track Riders Association (DTRA), MCN Festival, Peterborough Arena 18/19th May 2019.
The MCN Festival of Motorcycling, held at Peterborough Arena, East of England Showground, played host to the Indian Motorcycle Flat Track Nationals last weekend with the flat track arena providing high octane entertainment right at the heart of the festival. Over 300 tonnes of new dirt had been added to the track and the venue was in prime condition for the event; yet unpredictable weather made for a frustrating start to the two days of racing with Saturdays Hooligan races cancelled due to consistent rain during the day.
Sundays Hooligan action more than made up it with heart-stopping moments as Indian Motorcycle’s Krazy Horse teammates Leah Tokelove and Lee Kirkpatrick battled bar to bar on their modified Scouts for position in the heat races. The Hooligan final saw a dominant performance from Gary Birtwistle leading from beginning to end although he was under constant pressure from Max Hunt. A red flag caused a restart from a line out and left Indian Scout rider Leah Tokelove having to fight her way back from fourth behind Grant Martin to take a well deserved third place, continuing her consistent podium streak.

Indian shared a video that they cut together in support of Brad Baker. He suffered a debilitating spinal cord injury last season and has been relegated to a wheelchair. Indian has retained him to act as a rider coach and AFT is utilizing him as a commentator.
He is working hard to regain his independence and working toward walking again. Pretty damn inspiring if you ask me.

Bauman Shines in Indian Wrecking Crew Debut Aboard Indian FTR750
Minneapolis – Indian Motorcycle Racing, presented by Progressive Motorcycle Insurance, kicked off the start of the 2019 American Flat Track (AFT) season with a first-place finish at the Daytona TT. Making his Indian Motorcycle Wrecking Crew debut, Briar Bauman dominated the track aboard his Indian FTR750.
The highly-anticipated AFT season opener was action-packed, with Bauman taking an aggressive lead early in the Main and forging a considerable gap between himself and the rest of the field. Indian Motorcycle Privateer Henry Wiles (Bandit Industries, DPC Racing, Wilco Racing Indian FTR750) battled his way into second place, but was unable to track down Bauman.
“Briar had an impressive finish to the 2018 season as an Indian privateer aboard the FTR750,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle. “He and his crew put in an extensive amount of time and preparation during the off-season, so we’re extremely proud to see him find success this early in the season.”
Fellow Wrecking Crew rider Bronson Bauman raced to a fifth-place finish, while the back-to-back reigning Grand National Champion Jared Mees salvaged a Main event qualifier after uncharacteristically hitting the dirt twice during the Semi. Mees made a strong push early in the Main and was running in fifth, until a mechanical issue ended his night early.
The second race of the season kicks off next weekend with the Atlanta Short Track at Dixie Speedway on March 24.
WOODSTOCK, GA. (March 25, 2019) – Indian Motorcycle Racing, presented by Progressive Motorcycle Insurance, showcased dominance once again, as the FTR750 swept the Atlanta Short Track podium. In his first year piloting the FTR750, Indian Motorcycle Privateer Brandon Robinson (Kennedy Racing/Armbruster Racing Indian FTR750) secured his first win since 2016. Alongside Robinson, Wrecking Crew Riders Jared Mees and Briar Bauman rounded out the podium, finishing second and third respectively.
Starting from the front row, Robinson battled near the front of the pack for most of the Main – remaining fast and picking off riders one by one. With four laps remaining, Robinson made an impressive move along the outside to surpass Mees for the lead. Robinson’s win in Atlanta and eighth-place finish in Daytona places him second on the championship leaderboard.
“Brandon Robinson is an incredible competitor. It’s great to see him take to the FTR750 so quickly and secure a win in only his second race on the bike,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle. “On a night where the track got the best of a number of riders, it was great to see Mees and Briar battle it out and secure the FTR750 podium sweep.”
After starting the Main on the pole, Bauman fell back as far as eighth place. As the race went on, Bauman found a line low on the track and was able to make several passes and secure back-to-back podium...
