Mees won "The night before the Mile" on one of his favorite bikes,a Rotax he bought and raced when he was twelve years old. Lodi's rules are almost run what ya brung, encouraging large competitive fields. National No.1 Jake Johnson,Mee's bud and arch rival, looks over the old dog.
To get in to the Main, Mees had to fight his way past a bunch of young guys who were intent on whooping up on the Champ.
Jared wasn't having any of that.
He pulled away with a very determined Brad Baker waiting for him to slip up. Never happened.
