Mees Completes Mile Sweep at Season Finale

The final race of the AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines 2019 series saw outgoing champion Jared Mees complete a clean sweep of the season's Mile races by taking the win at the Meadowlands Mile, at East Rutherford, NJ on September 28.
With Briar Bauman (No. 14 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750) coming home in 15th, having already won the 2019 championship, Mees (No. 1 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750) secured his own bragging rights by ending the season with a perfect sweep of the season’s finale.
