American Flat Track mourns the loss of Barry Boone

1

3DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (September 11, 2017) – The American Flat Track community is deeply saddened by the passing of Barry Boone, legendary race announcer, longtime motorcyclist and motorcycle racing enthusiast.4

A third-generation motorcyclist, Boone was born in Owensboro, Kentucky, a city with deep roots in racing. His passion for the sport was unmatched, and his long and successful career made him a legendary figure throughout the motorcycle community.

Week in and week out, Boone breathed life into the sport as the lead announcer for countless motorcycle races around the country and through his popular radio show Talking Motorcycles. His enthusiasm for the sport and motorcycling in general was infectious. He will be missed dearly.

“Barry was a true friend, both on and off the track,” said Scottie Deubler, who served as Boone’s co-anchor at more than 100 American Flat Track events over the last decade. “On the stage, he did such a wonderful job of making people feel comfortable even though they were in front of thousands of fans. Behind the scenes, he enjoyed life so much and was always so much fun to work with. We’re going to miss him.”

Boone was 62. He is survived by the love of his life Colette, sister Sharon Rone, brother-in-law Jack Rone and a close-knit family that adored him. His immediate family would like to personally thank all of Barry’s Motorcycle Family for all their love and support.

Jared Mees Upsets Bryan Smith at the Harley-Davidson Springfield Mile II

11Mees moves closer to sealing the deal on his fourth American Flat Track premier-class championship

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (September 3, 2017) – Jared Mees continued his march toward the 2017 AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines crown in Sunday’s epic Harley-Davidson Springfield Mile II. It was win that may go down as Mees’ signature victory in a season which has been lined with them.

The grandstands at the Illinois State Fairgrounds were packed once again as American Flat Track turned out in huge numbers to find out how the highly-anticipated rematch between rivals Mees and Bryan Smith (No. 1 Indian Motorcycle Racing backed by Allstate Scout FTR750) would play out. When the series last visited the venue back in May, the reigning champ was in full control. On that day, the flat track faithful witnessed the “Master of the Mile” work his magic to perfection, upping Smith’s win streak to four with a trademark 0.005 of a second acing over Mees.

Mees (No. 9 Indian Motorcycle Rogers Racing Scout FTR750) returned motivated to demonstrate just how completely the tables had turned since that defeat. Smith has yet to win since his Springfield Mile I triumph, while Mees has assembled an imposing championship advantage on the strength of five wins during that same span.

On Sunday, the two were joined at the front in a six-rider, three- and four-wide melee by Brad Baker (No. 6 Indian Motorcycle Racing backed by Allstate Scout FTR750), Sammy Halbert (No. 69 Estenson Logistics Yamaha FZ-07), Briar Bauman (No. 14 Zanotti Racing Kawasaki Ninja 650), and Jeffrey Carver Jr. (No. 23 Ben Evan’s Racing/Carver’s BBQ Kawasaki Ninja 650).

The prospect of a six-way shootout to the end was shot down on lap 17 of 25. A red flag was displayed due to an incident involving Kenny Coolbeth (No. 2 Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Team XG750R), who had fought his way up from 13th to seventh to lead the second group.

When racing resumed, it quickly took shape as a four-way fight for victory involving Mees, Smith, Baker, and Halbert.

Mees took the white flag to open the final lap down in third. He then stormed up the inside of Baker entering Turn 1, and then went the other way heading into 3. He powered alongside Smith around the outside as they negotiated Turns 3 and 4, and slotted just in front of him in the decisive sprint to the checkered flag.

Mees hit the stripe 0.021 seconds ahead of Smith. Baker narrowly edged Halbert to claim third another 0.051 seconds back to secure the Indian Wrecking Crew’s sixth podium sweep of the season.

The victory stands as Mees’ eighth on the season, upping his career mark to 30 to move equal with Bart Markel for 10th on the all-time list. Additionally, Mees now boasts a 46-point championship advantage (317 to Smith’s 271) with three races remaining. That means Mees could clinch the 2017 title two races early by claiming his ninth victory on the season at next weekend’s Harley-Davidson Williams Grove Half-Mile presented by Appalachian Harley-Davidson.

An ecstatic Mees said, “It feels so good to get this win. In the springtime, I got nipped at the line ever so slightly. My guys really gave me a good, strong motorcycle that was so hooked up. After practice, I thought this really could be my day, but I’ve felt that before and Bryan has always outsmarted me at the line… If there was one race I wanted to pull off this year after the first half of the year, it was the Springfield Mile II on Labor Day weekend.”

Runner-up Smith said, “It was a fun race — I’d have much rather won though. Hats off to Jared. He just got around me in the last corner and outsmarted me a little bit. The track was totally different than in the spring; you didn’t have to play chess so much as checkers and make moves quick. Unfortunately, I came up a little bit short, but nonetheless, it’s awesome to see the Indian boys battle for every spot on the podium again.”

Third-placed Baker said, “It was a really fun race. It was a blast out there. We all knew where we needed to be — whoever led off Turn 4 usually got to the stripe first… It was a dogfight whoever was going to get that spot. I was right there, but I think I set Jared up good to get us both. Bryan and I were right on his tail and we were all reacting at 140 miles per hour a couple inches away from the wall. It gets a little hectic there the last 50 feet of the race. To only lose by a half bike and get third just shows how close the racing was.”

Brandon Robinson (No. 44 Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Team XG750R) made the most of the second chance provided by the red flag, outdueling early contenders Bauman and Carver to complete the top five.

Henry Wiles stays perfect in Peoria

Wiles scores 13th-straight win to tie Chris Carr for Grand National wins at the legendary Peoria TT

PEORIA, Ill. (August 13, 2017) American Flat Track witnessed a coronation of sorts on Sunday, as the assembled fans and media joined in proclaiming Henry Wiles (No. 17 DPC Racing Kawasaki Ninja 650), “King Henry,” as he extended his reign over the Peoria TT to a nearly unthinkable 13 victories in succession.

Wiles’ 13th triumph at the Peoria Motorcycle Club moved him equal in all-time wins at the legendary venue with the “Prince of Peoria” Chris Carr — the two masters representing two generations of racing royalty at the longest standing event in America Flat Track history.

There was at least some inkling that this might be the year Wiles’ streak finally came to an end. After all, the return of the Twins to Peoria for the first time in two decades provided a significant x-factor. Additionally, the layout was altered slightly with a two-stage jump introduced in anticipation of the heavier, more powerful machinery.

The reality proved otherwise, however, as Wiles was once again all alone in a class of his own. He was as dominant as ever, firmly controlling the day’s AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines action from start to finish.

In addition to his Peoria accolades, Wiles’ victory also saw him up his overall all-time TT wins record to 18.

Wiles said, “It’s awesome to be able to tie Chris’ record. A lot of people asked what I thought about this race going to Twins, and I thought it was going to be even tougher to win… Honestly, I felt like the underdog coming into this race. It was a little bit stressful, but I got out in front of that Main Event and was just able to click off the laps. I had a lot of fun out there.

“I can’t tell you how excited I am for all of my sponsors and to be able to take my little guy (Wile’s son) on the victory ride — that’s been a dream of mine.”

While Jared Mees (No. 9 Indian Motorcycle Rogers Racing Scout FTR750) was unable to finally vanquish heavy-favorite Wiles, he did continue to pile on his already-expansive championship lead with a runner-up finish.

Mees engaged in a tight scrap with Buffalo Chip TT winner Briar Bauman (No. 14 Zanotti Racing Kawasaki Ninja 650) until the pair encountered traffic. At that point, Mees called upon his experience and racecraft to slip free from Bauman on his way to a 13th podium finish in 14 races this season.

Mees will carry a 41-point advantage into the four-race homestretch with an eye on earning his fourth-career premier class championship.

“It was a pretty good ride for me, I guess,” Mees said. “I just didn’t have anything for Henry whatsoever… I felt Briar breathing down my neck early. I just made sure I got off Turn 4 smooth and good, and the Indian FTR750 pulled me strong down the straightaway.”

Bauman’s third place was his third podium finish of the season, adding onto his wins at the Buffalo Chip TT and Lima Half-Mile.

He said, “It feels good to be back up on the podium. We were close to Jared for a while there, but then we got into some lappers. He’s just so smart on the motorcycle. He worked his way through there, and bottom line, I didn’t.

“I’m happy to be up here. Consistency is important, and we’ve been inside the top five pretty often this year.”

Bryan Smith (No. 1 Indian Motorcycle Racing backed by Allstate Scout FTR750) did well to minimize the damage Mees was able to do on Sunday by finishing a strong fourth at a venue where he’s historically struggled.

Third “Wrecking Crew” member Brad Baker (No. 6 Indian Motorcycle Racing backed by Allstate Scout FTR750) completed the top five.

AFT Singles
One week ahead of his 30th birthday, Jesse Janisch (No. 132 West Bend Harley-Davidson-backed Yamaha YZ450F) scored his second-career AFT Singles victory with a masterclass performance at the Peoria TT. The win backed up Janisch’s breakthrough 2015 victory in Peoria.

Janisch tangled early with a feisty Kolby Carlile (No. 36 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F), as the two went back and forth over the race’s opening two laps. However, once Janisch locked down control at the front, he gradually worked up a mammoth advantage en route to his convincing win.

“It’s great to get it done here,” Janisch said. “This is one of my favorite tracks, and the new layout is great… It was definitely a good day.”

Similar to Mees in the premier class, Carlile was a winner in terms of the big picture despite finishing as runner-up on the day. With AFT Singles championship leader Shayna Texter (No. 52 Richie Morris Racing Honda CRF450R) watching from the fences, Carlile narrowed the gap to Texter to just two points (201-199).

Carlile said, “Wherever we are in the points is fine, but what I’m most happy about is that we’ve got the Estenson Racing Yamaha really going now. My team worked their tails off all day.”

Fellow title hopeful Brandon Price (No. 92 Brandon Price Racing backed by Parkinson Brother’s Racing/DPC Racing/Don’s Kawasaki Honda CRF450R) made up some ground as well with a 13th-place result. Price now has 191 points as the championship’s three primary contenders are all within 10 points of one another with only four races left to decide the champion.

Fourth-ranked Ben Lowe (161 points) made a late-race move aboard the No. 20 Bruce Lowe Excavating Honda CRF450R to claim the final spot on the podium.

The Peoria TT will air on NBCSN on Thursday, September 21 as part of a doubleheader with another classic venue, the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield, Ill. Catch the Peoria TT at 10:00 p.m. ET (7:00 p.m. PT) with the Springfield Short Track and Harley-Davidson Springfield Mile II episode at 11:00 p.m. ET (8:00 p.m. PT).  The full schedule for American Flat Track on NBCSN can be viewed at http://www.americanflattrack.com/events-nbcsn .

Jared Mees bags another dominant win at the Harley-Davidson Calistoga Half-Mile

Presented by Cycle Gear, Tanner Dean turns heads with his first National win in the competitive AFT Singles class111

CALISTOGA, Calif. (July 30, 2017) The three-week summer break between American Flat Track rounds did nothing to cool off the red hot Jared Mees as the 2017 AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines title fight picked back up at the Harley-Davidson Calistoga Half-Mile presented by Cycle Gear.

Seemingly out of sorts during qualifying and even into his Heat race, Mees proved to be an unstoppable juggernaut around Calistoga Speedway aboard his No. 9 Indian Motorcycle Rogers Racing Scout FTR750 by the time the Main Event arrived.

The title leader was consistently four- to five-tenths superior each lap compared to his nearest pursuer. As a result, he worked up 3.254 seconds worth of padding by lap 9 of a scheduled 25 when the race was temporarily halted due to a red flag.

Rather than be discouraged after seeing that huge lead erased in an instant, Mees simply went back to work. He proceeded to rip open an even larger 3.476-second margin during the first nine laps that followed the restart, and the title leader’s drama-free march at the front saw him as much as 4.548 seconds out in front as the race neared its conclusion.

Mees ultimately cruised to a 3.571-second margin of victory, sailing by the checkered flag in a one-handed wheelie.

The three-time Grand National Champion now boasts an 18-point championship advantage and has clearly turned the tide of momentum in his favor with four wins in his last five outings.

After his blowout victory, Mees said, “It was a great night. It was a little hectic in the last qualifier, and in the Heat race I was off the pace. We came back and rethought things. I have such a good team and they work so hard. We gel really well together and when we’re down, we have a lot of tools in the toolbox with this Indian Scout FTR750 to make changes.”

Second place went to Sammy Halbert (No. 69 Estenson Logistics Yamaha FZ-07) in convincing fashion, coming on the heels of his vastly impressive X Games gold medal performance a couple weeks back.

Runner-up Halbert said, “We had a great bike right from the get-go. We were really fast in qualifying, but the track was changing a lot, going from really hooked up to a bit slick. It’s a little more challenging for me on this bike when it’s slick. But we still made huge gains today, and my boys had it working good for the Main Event where I was able to run a solid second.

“It was a little nerve-racking because I had to hit my marks perfectly every time. And obviously, I couldn’t hang with Jared. His bike was so on point he could put it wherever he wanted.”

The most spirited battle in the top 10 was waged by teammates to decide the final spot on the podium. In the end, Brad Baker (No. 6 Indian Motorcycle Racing backed by Allstate Scout FTR750) kept Bryan Smith (No. 1 Indian Motorcycle Racing backed by Allstate Scout FTR750) at bay by a meager 0.067 of a second to finish in third.

While Baker was happy enough to edge Smith out and land on the box for the eighth time in 2017, he admitted his frustration at still seeking his first win aboard the potent Scout FTR750.

Baker said, “It was a good battle… I’ve had a lot of good battles this year, but only a couple of them for the win. Tonight it was for the wrong position; fighting with my teammate is fun but not for the last podium spot. Hats off to Sammy, and especially Jared – he really put it to us tonight.”

For Smith, the close fourth was an encouraging uptick in form following consecutive sixth- and seventh-place runs. However, it also marked his third straight finish off the podium and his fifth in a row without a win after powering to four successive victories earlier this season.

Lima Half-Mile winner Briar Bauman (No. 14 Zanotti Racing Kawasaki Ninja 650) rounded out the top five, taking the checkered flag less than a second behind Smith. Fifth-ranked Jeffrey Carver Jr. (No. 23 Carver’s BBQ Kawasaki Ninja 650) finished one further spot back in sixth.

Factory Harley-Davidson riders Brandon Robinson (No. 44 Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Team XG750R), Kenny Coolbeth, Jr. (No. 2 Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Team XG750R), and Jake Johnson (No. 5 Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Team XG750R) all made their way to the Main at Calistoga, finishing ninth, 12th, and 15th, respectively.

AFT Singles
Suggesting that Tanner Dean (No. 138 Walrath Racing Honda CRF450R) came out of nowhere to win Saturday’s AFT Singles race at the Calistoga Half-Mile may be an exaggeration, but not by much.

The race was just Dean’s fourth-career AFT Singles race, and his first ever attempt at a Half-Mile National. His previous best finish was 11th (twice), so it’s safe to assume the category’s usual suspects were taken a bit off guard by his sudden arrival at the front this weekend.

Dean gave plenty of warning in the lead-up to the race, however. He posted the fastest time in qualifying, won his Heat, and finished second in his Semi only after getting bumped off line late.

The sport’s newest star made no rookie mistakes as he scored the win despite being hounded in the Main Event by a motivated Brandon Price (No. 92 Brandon Price Racing backed by Parkinson Brothers Racing/DPC Racing/Don’s Honda CRF450R), with third-place finisher Kolby Carlile (No. 36 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F) also in hot pursuit.

“This is a big dream come true for me,” Dean said after claiming his maiden victory. “I’ve always wanted to win a National. I just kept my head down and hit my lines right and I came out with the win.”

If not for the stunning emergence of Dean, the respective results of Price and Carlile would have been the biggest news of the night in AFT Singles action. The intrigue was amped up by their linked seat shuffle, with Carlile putting in a promising first performance aboard the Estenson Yamaha, and Price going one better in his first attempt on the Parkinson Brothers Honda vacated by Carlile.

Ben Lowe (No. 20 Bruce Lowe Excavating Honda CRF450R) finished fourth with AFT Singles championship leader Shayna Texter (No. 52 Richie Morris Racing Honda CRF450R) on spot behind in fifth.

Texter actually came up big to score her top-five points haul after running down near the bottom of the top 10 for much of the contest. As a result, she now holds a mammoth 29-point advantage but may require every bit of it with a TT – her weakest discipline – now looming on the series’ slate.

The Harley-Davidson Calistoga Half-Mile presented by Cycle Gear will premiere on NBCSN on Thursday, September 7, at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT. The full schedule for American Flat Track on NBCSN can be viewed at http://www.americanflattrack.com/events-nbcsn .
