History and fierce competition will be rejoined in 2014 as AMA Pro Flat Track racers Jared Mees and Nichole Mees join Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle® Factory Team rider Brad Baker in the latest incarnation of the Harley-Davidson Wrecking Crew. Jared and Nichole Mees, who are husband and wife, will fly the Harley-Davidson banner while competing on the AMA Pro Grand National Twins series for independent, dealer-owned flat track racing teams with additional support from Harley-Davidson Motor Company.

“Harley-Davidson is proud to have Jared and Nichole joining Brad Baker in representing our brand this season,” said Harley-Davidson Racing Manager Kris Schoonover. “Jared is a perennial championship contender and Nichole is always a threat as well. Off the track, they bring integrity and great personality to everything they do. We’re excited to work with them this year.”

The original Wrecking Crew was the official Harley-Davidson factory team that dominated motorcycle racing in the early 1920s. The modern Wrecking Crew riders compete aboard Harley-Davidson XR750 motorcycles with the same spirit and intensity those original legends brought to the track, and will open the 2014 AMA Pro Grand National Twins season on the historic Springfield Mile on May 25.

So is this racing series more dirt rack racing than road track racing. Its looking a little Mad Max to me.

Good luck to Harley Davidson!

Alright, I get it now. This racing looks like a pretty fun time. Lots of dragging of the feet going on around those corners. This doesn't really strike me as the type of event that Harley Davidson would do though. I've never seen a scrambler-type bike from Harley-Davidson.

Thanks for posting up the video.

I imagine with all that sliding around corners that there are a lot of accidents. Sounds exciting to watch.

I'd also want to be a rider but maybe when there aren't all the rest of the bikers on the track.
