As teams begin to arrive for this Saturday’s AMA Pro K&N Filters Grand National Championship Finals presented by Motorcycle-Superstore.com at Yavapai Downs in Prescott Valley, Ariz, riders will make some local appearances.

Jared Mees, the 2009 AMA Pro Twins Grand National Champion who competes on a Harley-Davidson XR750 will be at Hacienda Harley-Davidson in Scottsdale, Ariz, on Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m. signing autographs and answering questions as he prepares to tackle the ultra fast 1 mile dirt track where motorcycles reach speeds over 120mph.

Mees started racing when he was 6 years old on a Yamaha PW 50. Growing up through the amateur ranks he rode just about every size motorcycle while winning the 2001 AMA Horizon Award.

In 2002, Mees turned Pro Sport and won the Harley-Davidson Sportster performance championship. Last year Mees jumped to the top of his sport clinching the AMA Number One Plate and Grand National Championship Title in Pomona, CA at the season’s grand finale.

AMA Pro Racing sanctions many racing series, but the oldest and most traditional is dirt track which primarily takes place on sprint car and horse tracks.

The Grand National Championship series dates back to 1954 and is the uniquely American form of motorcycle racing often called the most thrilling spectacles in motorsports.
