Jared Mees took home another win last Saturday, August 20, at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park in Elbridge, New York to extend his points-lead in the AMA Pro Flat Track GNC1 Championship over rival Bryan Smith. The pair will continue duke it out as they head to Smith's favored Mile tracks for the final two rounds of the season. While the war in the GNC1 class rages on, Ryan Wells was able to clinch the GNC2 title early, crossing the line second behind Dalton Gauthier. Here's a look back at the Central New York Half-Mile in photos…
