Mees Crowned 2021 Grand National Champion at Dramatic Progressive AFT Finale

Dallas Daniels able to go back-to-back in AFT Singles Championships

CONCORD, N.C. (October 10, 2021) – An epic Progressive American Flat Track season finale was all but guaranteed with the Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S Cycle title on the line. Even still, the Honda Charlotte Half-Mile at the Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C., proved more dramatic than anyone could have possibly foreseen.

 

After the checkered flag dropped and a season’s worth of points were stacked up, the legendary Jared Mees (No. 9 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750) completed his two-year climb to reclaim the Grand National Championship.

 

Following 15-and-one-half rounds, a titanic Grand National Championship fight took a fateful turn in the blink of an eye. Two-time defending Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S Cycle king Briar Bauman (No. 1 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750) shook free from an early dogfight with Mees to stretch out several bike lengths at the front. The two title contenders would spend the next several minutes in a game of cat-and-mouse, with Bauman managing a gap of just under a second despite Mees’ desperate attempt to eat away at the advantage.

 

If Bauman held that lead to the checkered flag, he was set to become just the sixth rider in history to win three consecutive Grand National Championships. But that dream became a nightmare when he got loose in the wet section and his machine stood up underneath him.

 

After nearly pulling off a miraculous save, Bauman ultimately clipped a hay bale and was sent over the bars. His bike then skittered directly into the path of podium contender Sammy Halbert (No. 69 Coolbeth-Nila Racing Indian FTR750), who had nowhere to go and was sent high into the air in a dramatic crash.

 

After some time, Bauman was able to return to his feet while Halbert was unfortunately unable to continue the race and was transported to be evaluated for injury.

 

Further proving his worthiness as a champion, Bauman mounted his back-up machine and lined up at the back of the grid for the restart with five minutes plus two laps remaining to decide the title. Unfortunately, his battered body was unable to match his bravery, and after a short stint, Bauman was forced to retire into the pits.

 

While the title was effectively decided at that point, the race was not. JD Beach (No. 95 Estenson Racing Yamaha MT-07 DT) stepped forward to provide Mees a fierce fight for the win. As the time ticked away, the two were slowly reeled in by Davis Fisher (No. 67 BMC Racing/Dick Wall 60 Indian FTR750) and Jarod Vanderkooi (No. 20 Mission Roof Systems Indian FTR750), who turned it into a four-way scrap as the clock hit 0:00.

 

With two to go, Beach took his shot, which was skillfully brushed away by Mees.

 

Fisher, however, took advantage of their tussle, slipping under Beach and then lining up Mees in the year’s final corner. He got underneath the champion-to-be and powered past him as they sprinted to the checkered flag.

 

The paddock erupted as Fisher hit the stripe 0.114 seconds ahead of Mees to claim his maiden premier class victory. Beach held on for third, followed by Vanderkooi and Brandon Robinson (No. 44 Mission Roof Systems Indian FTR750) to complete the top five.

 

Fisher said, “Oh man, it was a fight. All season long was a grind, just to stay fit and keep working on the bikes all week long. It feels so good. I even had thoughts to not even come to Charlotte this year. We loaded up the van and left the trailer at home and made the trip. This morning my sponsor said he was glad we came and asked me if I was glad too. I said, ‘I don’t know -- I’ll tell you tonight!’ It feels so good. I’ve got 41 hours to think about it on the way home.”

 

Future Hall of Famer Mees now boasts the '12, ‘14, ‘15, '17, '18, and ‘21 Grand National Championships, along with the 2009 and 2011 GNC1 Twins Championships and the 2012 GNC1 Singles Championship. He said, “I hand it to Briar. He’s definitely one of the toughest competitors -- if not the toughest competitor -- I’ve ever dealt with.

 

“The famous saying is you win ‘em any way you can. I don’t know... the hype isn’t there at this very second... but to win these things you have to cross the finish line. Man, he made me step up my game these past few years -- there’s no doubt about that. He’s one tough competitor. We had a little ‘bro-out’ moment back there, and I told him, ‘Hey, you’re gonna heal up and the battle will resume next year.’”

 

AFT Singles

 

The AFT Singles finale played out about as tensely as possible considering the situation at hand, but in the end, Dallas Daniels (No. 1 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F) did exactly what he needed to in order to become the class’ first-ever back-to-back champion.

 

With a 20-point gap separating Daniels from second-ranked Max Whale (No. 18 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing 450 SX-FFE), the only way Daniels wouldn’t hold onto the #1 plate was if Whale won and Daniels finished lower than 13th.

 

While that seemed like an unlikely prospect in theory, it felt a whole lot more realistic once the rubber actually hit the dirt. As the deciding race took shape, Whale put himself up front in an intense battle with Kody Kopp (No. 143 Smartop/Jones Honda/Latus Motors CRF450R) while Daniels cautiously circulated down in 12th on a tricky course that repeatedly demonstrated the capacity to catch riders out without notice.

 

Adding to the tension, the race was red-flagged late following a Morgen Mischler (No. 13 Mission Roof Systems KTM 450 SX-F) crash. That forced Daniels to navigate the close quarters of a restart, but he actually made up ground in the process, getting away well to slot into a safe sixth.

 

Whale did all he could, slashing past Kopp to claim his class-leading fifth win of the year. Just behind, Trent Lowe (No. 48 WBR/Suzuki Motor of America RM-Z450) pulled off a spectacular late strike to ace Honda teammates Cole Zabala (No. 51 American Honda/Progressive Insurance CRF450R) and Trevor Brunner (No. 21 American Honda/Progressive Insurance CRF450R) in order to pick up his first podium of ‘21 in his very final attempt.

 

And then came Daniels, who rolled across the line in sixth to successfully complete his championship defense.

 

An emotional Daniels fought back the tears as he said, “This championship has been tough -- a lot of ups and downs this season. I can’t thank my team enough. It’s been a hard season and these guys stuck behind me. To make history like this is awesome. It was tough tonight because the track was treacherous. It just means the world to me.”

 

Race winner and championship runner-up Whale said, “It’s really satisfying. You’re only as good as your last race. You know, it’s awesome to get the win, and I’m super pumped. The team and I worked so hard today. But I’m also bummed because I really wanted to win the championship this year. But that’s how it goes really -- it’s motorcycle racing. Congrats to the whole Estenson team and Dallas -- he rode great all year.”

 

AFT Production Twins presented by Vance & Hines

 

The late-season transition of Jesse Janisch (No. 96 Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson XG750R) from the couch to AFT Production Twins presented by Vance & Hines podium contention ended on the top step of the box.

 

Once regarded primarily as a 450cc TT ace, Janisch proved he more than belonged on a twin after being drafted to sub for the injured Dalton Gauthier (No. 79 D&D Cycles/Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson XG750R). With finishes of second, third, third, and fourth to his name in limited duty, Janisch put the cherry on top with a narrow victory in the finale over Ben Lowe (No. 25 Vance & Hines/Mission Roof Systems Harley-Davidson XG750R).

 

Janisch said, “It’s insane, right? I didn’t expect it. Honestly, I don’t think anyone really expected it. It’s such an honor to get a chance with such a prestigious team. Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson, they've got the XG750R working amazingly. Like I’ve said before, I think it’s the best bike in the class. And to just get the opportunity is unreal.”

 

With the class crown already decided in favor of Cory Texter (No. 65 G&G Racing/Yamaha Racing MT-07), Chad Cose (No. 49 Vance & Hines/Ranger/Roof Systems Harley-Davidson XG750R) and Dan Bromley (No. 62 Memphis Shades/Vinson Construction Yamaha MT-07) came into Charlotte set to decide the championship runner-up between them.

 

Cose was the race’s early leader and Bromley joined Cose, Janisch, and Lowe in a mid-race tilt for first place. Cose ultimately faded to seventh while Bromley rounded out the podium, but the differential still wasn’t quite enough for Bromley to catch Cose for runner-up honors.

 

Johnny Lewis (No. 10 Moto Anatomy X Powered by Royal Enfield Twins FT) hustled the Royal Enfield to fourth. Meanwhile, class champ Texter added one final top five to a championship-winning season that tallied up seven wins, 11 podiums, and 13 top-fives in 16 races.

 

The Honda Charlotte Half-Mile will premiere on NBCSN Saturday, October 16, starting at 7:00 p.m. ET/4:00 p.m. PT. It will re-air on Friday, October 22, at 6:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m. PT.

Charlotte Half-Mile Promises Epic Progressive AFT Finale

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (October 4, 2021) – This is it. Following 15 fiercely fought Progressive American Flat Track rounds, the season-ending Honda Charlotte Half-Mile will determine the 2021 Grand National Championship under the lights at the Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday, October 8.

 

As they arrive in Charlotte, North Carolina, reigning two-time Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S Cycle champion Briar Bauman (No. 1 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750) and living legend Jared Mees (No. 9 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750) are separated by just four points. That means both factory Indian stars are in position to secure the 2021 crown from the top step of the podium, simple as that.

 

It gets a bit more complicated should another rider play the spoiler and steal away the victory. Should that happen, Mees’ slight lead earned on the strength of an active four-race win streak provides him an advantage in that he could still take the title by finishing close behind Bauman on track.

 

Considering their combined ability, winning percentage, and motivation, it may seem unlikely that another rider is able to elbow ahead with so much on the line, but Brandon Robinson (No. 44 Mission Roof Systems Indian FTR750) managed to do just that (twice) in last year’s similarly tight DAYTONA finale.

 

The scenario of a title-shifting upset just became that much more realistic with the news that Jeffrey Carver, Jr. (No. 23 Happy Trails Racing/DPC/KullyCo/Bigelow Indian FTR750) has been added to the entry list. As a reminder, in last year’s late-season battle in Charlotte, Bauman and Mees traded the lead back and forth until privateer Carver shot past them both en route to a huge win. A repeat effort could literally decide which bike the #1 plate is brandished upon in 2022.

 

The field is stocked with potential spoilers, including Sammy Halbert (No. 69 Coolbeth-Nila Racing Indian FTR750), Jarod Vanderkooi (No. 20 Mission Roof Systems Indian FTR750), Brandon Price (No. 92 Mission Roof Systems Indian FTR750) and JD Beach (No. 95 Estenson Racing Yamaha MT-07 DT).

 

AFT Singles

 

The 2021 AFT Singles championship will be determined in Charlotte as well. While there doesn’t appear to be much room for drama as in the premier class, if second-ranked Max Whale (No. 18 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing 450 SX-FFE) manages to dethrone defending class champ Dallas Daniels (No. 1 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F), you can bet some serious drama went down.

 

With 20 points and the tiebreaker working in his favor, Daniels merely needs to finish 13th or better in the Main even if Australian Whale wins. And if Whale doesn’t win, Daniels doesn’t need to do anything but collect his trophy.

 

Morgen Mischler (No. 13 Mission Roof Systems KTM 450 SX-F) is nearly as safe in third with Daniels’ teammate, Mikey Rush (No. 15 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F), 18 points back in fourth.

 

Last year’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway was a classic, with Daniels clinching the title thanks to a last-lap pass for victory over Mischler. Whale finished fourth, just 0.201 seconds back of the win, which sets the table nicely for another spectacular scrap on Friday night.

 

AFT Production Twins presented by Vance & Hines

 

Last season, Cory Texter (No. 65 G&G Racing/Roof Systems Yamaha MT-07) scored a holeshot-to-checkered flag win in Charlotte. The situation was considerably different, as Texter was desperate just to keep his slim 2020 AFT Production Twins presented by Vance & Hines title hopes alive at the time.

 

Now he comes into the finale having already locked down a second-career AFT Production Twins championship. That said, Texter is a racer’s racer and one making up for lost time spent as a long-time journeyman pilot. He’s unlikely to lack for motivation even with the title already taken care of.

 

Meanwhile, AFT Production Twins championship runner-up honors are still up for grabs with Chad Cose (No. 49 Voodoo Ranger/Roof Systems Harley-Davidson XG750R) nine points up on Dan Bromley (No. 62 Memphis Shades/Vinson Construction Yamaha MT-07) with one race to go.

 

The evening also presents one final chance for the likes of Ben Lowe (No. 25 Mission Roof Systems Harley-Davidson XG750R) and Jesse Janisch (No. 96 Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson XG750R) to get a win before the year is out.

 

As if that wasn’t enough, the Charlotte Half-Mile will also feature the season finale of Royal Enfield’s hugely popular BUILD. TRAIN. RACE. program and the penultimate round of the innovative Super Hooligan National Championship. BUILD. TRAIN. RACE. showcases the talent, versatility, competitiveness, and enthusiasm of female motorcyclists in its own action-packed style, while the outlaw-minded Super Hooligan series features customized heavy street bikes competing at a road race circuit, a Short Track, a Half-Mile and an asphalt oval to determine the nation’s most all-around skill heavy street bike racer.

 

The Honda Charlotte HM will also feature all the pomp and circumstance befitting a season finale off the track as well. NASCAR superstar Austin Dillon, driver of the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE will serve as the evening’s Grand Marshal ahead of the weekend’s NASCAR doubleheader at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

 

Additionally, the Fan Zone will offer a multitude of activities, including a Tribute to the Troops presentation to a Gold Star Family, fun in the Kids Zone, live music courtesy of series’ favorite Chasing Neon and fireworks at the end of the evening to close out the 2021 season in style.

Fans may purchase one of a very limited number of passes granting access to an exclusive ride-along experience in the Official Sport SxS of AFT: the Honda Talon.

PDRA to Decide 2021 World Champions at Brian Olson Memorial World Finals Presented by ProCharger

DINWIDDIE, Va. (Oct. 11, 2021) – Nearly all of the 2021 Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) world championships are still up for grabs as the all-eighth-mile series rolls into Virginia Motorsports Park for the Brian Olson Memorial World Finals presented by ProCharger, Oct. 14-17. It’s the eighth and final race for the drivers and teams competing in the series’ professional, sportsman and Jr. Dragster categories.



“It’s been a thrilling season of competition, and it all comes down to this weekend at the World Finals,” said Tyler Crossnoe, race director, PDRA. “Racers from Pro Nitrous and Pro Boost to the Jr. Dragster classes will be giving it all they’ve got to close out the season with a win and maybe even a world championship. This is going to be a can’t-miss weekend of racing, that’s for sure.”

Three drivers already clinched 2021 world championships going into the World Finals, securing their spots in the history books one race early.

“Congratulations to Jim Halsey (Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous), Wes Distefano ($hameless Racing Pro Outlaw 632), and Nick Meloni (MagnaFuel Top Sportsman) for their incredible performances this season,” Crossnoe said. “While there are three championships decided, there are a ton of titles up in the air with extremely tight points standings.”

The most competitive championship battle is raging in Penske/PRS Pro Boost presented by WS Construction, where two-time world champion Kevin Rivenbark is the points leader. Rivenbark crashed his ProCharger-boosted GALOT Motorsports ’69 Camaro during prerace testing at DragWars earlier this month, though he secured a backup ride for DragWars and the World Finals when competitor Stan Shelton offered up his screw-blown Culp Lumber ’19 Mustang. Inaugural Pro Boost world champion Todd Tutterow is less than one round behind Rivenbark with a win and three consecutive runner-up finishes. DragWars winner Daniel Pharris is just over two rounds behind Rivenbark, while Randy Weatherford and Johnny Camp are also mathematically eligible.

With two wins and two runner-up finishes, Chris Powers is the championship leader in Liberty’s Gears Extreme Pro Stock presented by AED Competition. The driver of the Sonny’s Racing Engines ’18 Camaro has less than a one-round lead over JR Carr, who tightened up the title battle with his runner-up finish at DragWars. Defending world champion Johnny Pluchino sits three rounds and four qualifying points behind Powers.

Defending world champion Travis Davis is chasing his third consecutive title in Drag 965 Pro Nitrous Motorcycle. Davis won his third race of the season at DragWars, giving him a slim points lead over perennial championship contender Chris Garner-Jones. With a win and two runner-up finishes, Garner-Jones is less than one round behind Davis.

The first-ever Drag 965 Pro Street world championship is still up for grabs, though Tim Essick in his ProCharger-boosted “Brown Sugar” ’18 Mustang has a commanding lead. He has three wins and a runner-up finish in five races. Jesse Lambert is the only driver still mathematically eligible to pass Essick with his two wins.

Three championships are available in the PDRA’s sportsman classes, where Tim Molnar (MagnaFuel Elite Top Sportsman presented by Tejas Borja), Michael White (Lucas Oil Elite Top Dragster), and TG Paschal (Lucas Oil Top Dragster) are the points leaders. While not a championship category, Edelbrock Bracket Bash presented by COMP Cams will also compete at the World Finals.

Both Jr. Dragster world champions will be decided at the World Finals, as Ethan Steding leads in Coolshirt Systems Pro Jr. Dragster and Rowan Parlett leads in Classic Graphix Top Jr. Dragster. Steding is the points leader by almost three rounds after winning DragWars, while Parlett’s lead is mere qualifying points following Alyssa Rabon’s DragWars win.

The World Finals will also include Halloween festivities like the PDRA’s annual Trunk or Treat, a costume contest, and a Best Decorated Golf Cart contest, all taking place on Friday evening.

Racers will have the opportunity to test all day Thursday before qualifying begins on Friday. Top Jr. Dragster will start qualifying action at 10 a.m., with pro sessions at 1:30 and 5:45 p.m. Jr. Dragster and sportsman classes will get a final third qualifying session at 10 a.m. on Saturday, followed by first round of eliminations at 3:15 p.m. Pro classes will continue qualifying at 1:30 and 5:45 p.m. Jr. Dragster and sportsman eliminations continue Sunday morning at 10:30, while pro eliminations will kick off at noon.

Tickets are available for $15 for Thursday testing and $20 for Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Public Suite Seat tickets are available for $60 for Saturday or Sunday. Kids 12 and under get in free with a paid adult ticket. Tickets can be purchased at www.PDRA660.com or at the gate.

Dan Gurney, Herb Nab and Richard Howard elected to NMPA Hall of Fame

Driver Dan Gurney, crew chief Herb Nab and promoter/team owner Richard Howard have been elected to the National Motorsports Press Association Hall of Fame, NMPA president Reid Spencer announced on Tuesday.

All three members of the 2022 class received more than 65 percent of votes cast by the NMPA membership, as prescribed by the organization’s bylaws. Biographies of the inductees, all of whom are deceased, appear below.

The induction of the three new members will take place on Sunday, January 23, 2022 during a dinner and ceremony on the Hendrick Motorsports campus in Concord, N.C. At the same time, class of 2021 honorees Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Steve Kinser will be inducted.

There was no induction ceremony in 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The NMPA Hall of Fame inductions follow the Jan. 23 convention and annual meeting of the NMPA. Those receiving NMPA awards will be recognized at an awards luncheon on that day.

Rules and entry information for contests in writing, video and radio broadcast, photography and podcasts will be distributed to the membership at the end of October. All contests will feature entries from both 2020 and 2021, again because of the pandemic.

NMPA Hall of Fame Class of 2022

Dan Gurney - Dan Gurney had a storied racing career that included roles as driver, team owner, and car builder. Gurney could drive – and succeed – in anything. Early in his career, he competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Formula 1 and then went on to win four straight NASCAR races at Riverside Raceway in the 1960s. His resume also includes wins in USAC Champ Car races and SCCA Trans-Am events. Gurney was the first driver to claim wins in all four major motorsports: F1, International Sports Cars, IndyCar and NASCAR. His victories in sports cars came at classic venues such as Nürburgring, Daytona, Sebring, and Le Mans. Gurney was considered an innovator off the track, as he was the first driver to use a full-face helmet in Grand Prix racing. He was also instrumental in the rear-engine revolution at Indianapolis in 1963. Gurney started the tradition of drivers spraying each other with champagne on the podium.

Herb Nab - Considered one of NASCAR’s greatest crew chiefs, Herb Nab guided a legion of drivers to Victory Lane in the premier series, a group that included such Hall of Fame drivers as Fred Lorenzen, Junior Johnson, Bobby Allison and Buddy Baker. But Nab reached his pinnacle of success when paired with Cale Yarborough. The duo finished second in the NASCAR championship in 1973 and 1974 before earning back-to-back titles in 1976 and 1977. In their four seasons together, the two won 23 races. During his career, Nab captured two victories in the sport’s biggest race, the Daytona 500, with Leeroy Yarbrough in 1969 and Cale Yarborough in 1977. Nab’s numbers are impressive—74 wins (with nine different drivers) and 64 poles in 338 races.

Richard Howard - Richard Howard will be remembered as the man who saved Charlotte Motor Speedway. The track was facing bankruptcy in the early 1960s when Howard, a local furniture salesman, stepped in and helped turn things around and keep the track open. His leadership also established the facility as a racing destination, as he improved fan amenities and became known for his promotional flair. Under Howard’s supervision, the surrounding area also underwent changes, with U.S. Route 29 being widened, new access roads added, and concourses built around the track for the fans. However, that was just a portion of Howard’s influence. During his tenure with the speedway, he served in other roles such as vice president, general manager, and president. In the 1970s, Howard partnered with Junior Johnson’s team and is recognized as a team owner with 21 wins in the premier series
