Indian Wins Sixth Consecutive AFT Manufacturer's Championship and Fourth Straight 1-2

With Jared Mees closing in on "World King" status, winning his eighth career championship in 2022, congratulations are also due to Indian Motorcycle Racing whose 2022 'Wrecking Crew' line-up scored them their sixth consecutive AFT Manufacturer's Championship and a 2022 1-2 season finish.

Scooping third and second place finishes at the Volusia Half-Mile I & II, Briar Bauman made an impressive fourth-to-second place jump in the final standings to back up Mees' championship win with his second spot for a second consecutive year, handing Indian Motorcycle a fourth straight premier Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S Cycle class 1-2 in a row.
While new 2022 rule changes were implemented to restrict the performance of the Indian FTR750, the Indian Motorcycle factory team and their backers - not least S&S Cycle and Drag Specialties - rose to the occasion and hit every curveball thrown its way.
"This year brought new challenges unlike any other," said Gary Gray, Vice President Racing, Service & Technology. "Our Manufacturer's Championship and Mees' title are a testament to the team's resiliency and hard work. And, of course, personal congratulations to Jared on his eighth championship. When we returned to the sport in 2017 and joined the Wrecking Crew, Jared shared his career goal with us, so to be sitting here, six years later, and him just one title shy of reaching Scottie Parker's record of nine championships is truly amazing." Mees now has more than 60 career wins and multiple records.
