    It was another fierce battle for top honors in the AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines class, with Mees on the No. 9 Indian Motorcycle Rogers Racing Scout FTR750 locked in a back-and-forth battle with Sammy Halbert on the No. 69 Estenson Racing Harley-Davidson XR750. The pair made contact, resulting in Halbert ending up in the dirt on the front straight and bringing out a late-race red flag. When the race restarted, Mees pulled away in the ensuing five-lap shootout to win by 1.185 seconds over Indian Motorcycle Racing backed by Allstate teammates Brad Baker on the No. 6 Indian Scout FTR750 and Bryan Smith on the No.1 Indian Scout FTR750.

    This is so exciting and I hope they carry on (safely) for the entire season. Getting to a race will be my vacation goals for this summer! And many thanks to Indian for bringing the owners into the Pit at Daytona to meet these guys! They are fabulous!

    I caught a little of one of the races with my phone - nothing great, but you can get a sense of what racing on wet clay looks like. The standing starts were great. Dixie Speedway had a great turn out - haven't seen the parking lot that overfull in a long time. Hoping AMA comes back again next season.
