Indian Motorcycle Racing makes it 3 in a row with Bryan Smith's win at Charlotte Half-Mile

What a start to the new season! The American Flat Track kicked off this Spring season and Indian Motorcycles didn't disappoint. Rocking the nickname 'Wrecking Crew', they went ahead to prove why this name has grown on the Indian's team so well.

The first 3 weeks of this season in 2017 were completely podiumed by both Bryan Smith and Jared Mees, with Smith recording a 2nd and 3rd, and then going on to win a 1st on the Indian Scout FTR750.

“It felt good to get the top podium position and my first win on the Indian Scout FTR750,” said Smith. “My team did an incredible job preparing the bike for this race. We’re stoked to be heading into the break on a high note, and will look to keep it rolling next month at the season’s first mile in Arizona.”

While Mees earned Indian's first flat track victory in over 60 years at the Daytona TT season opener, he also went on to win the Atlanta Short Track as well as achieving a strong 2nd place finish on the Charlotte Half Mile.
