Well, it’s always close racing, but defending champ Briar Bauman and multi-time champ Jared Mees have been swapping Indian FTR roost all season. And it’s about to come down to it. Going into the penultimate round in Charlotte this weekend, Bauman leads Mees 256 to 244 points. And if history offers any hint, it very probably will all come down to a two-legged Daytona Short Track final October 16 and 17. If you’ve been Jonesing for a live motorcycle racing fix all season and you’re in the area, in the shadow of Daytona International Speedway isn’t a bad place to socially-distant fan out and enjoy some great racing.

If you can’t make it to Daytona, you can stream the grand finale on Trackpass for $1.99 a month. Which includes Charlotte this weekend too. Seems reasonable. May the best Indian win.
