Indian Motorcycle Racing, presented by Progressive Motorcycle Insurance, and its championship-winning FTR750 continued its unbelievable season at the New York Short Track with a sweep of the top nine positions. Wrecking Crew Rider and current points leader Briar Bauman led the pack, as he earned his second win of the 2019 season. Indian Motorcycle Privateers Jeffrey Carver Jr. and Henry Wiles completed the all-FTR750 podium with second and third-place finishes, respectively.
The New York Short Track race was short and sweet, with the Main lasting less than 10 minutes, in which Bauman displayed his undisputed dominance as he held the lead for 29 of the 30 laps. Carver jumped out to take the lead in the opening lap, but Bauman quickly made a pass and didn’t look back – running a near flawless race.
“Briar is a true competitor. He came out to New York with a championship mindset to prove once again why he’s our current points leader,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle. “He’s had an incredible season so far, but with half the season remaining, and a number of talented riders competing, he knows he cannot let up if he wants to win his first Twins championship.”
Fellow Wrecking Crew Rider Bronson Bauman just missed the podium, as he finished in fourth behind Wiles. Indian Motorcycle Privateers Rob Pearson and Davis Fisher placed fifth and sixth, while defending AFT Twins Champion Jared Mees finished in seventh. Brandon Robinson and Brandon Price completed the FTR750 top nine finish with eighth and ninth place finished, respectfully.
Through nine races, the Indian Motorcycle Wrecking Crew ranks first, second and fourth on the season’s leaderboard. Briar Bauman remains in the lead with 170 points, tallying two wins, five second-place finishes and one third-place finish. Mees is second with 144 points, capturing three wins, one second-place and one third-place finish. Bronson Bauman sits in fourth with 116 points, as he’s garnered one win and four total top-five finishes.
