For the 2022 Flat Track Season, we are happy to announce our partnership with Memphis Shades to field up and comer Cole Zabala in the Production Twins class. Team Owner, Nick Henderson, will be tuning the Yamahas for what should be a very exciting season set to kick off March 10th in Volusia.
We will also be continuing our support of 2021 Super Twins Champion Jared Mees as he defends his title in 2022.
Cole Zabala Illinois resident Zabala’s passion for bicycling as a child inspired him to put a motorcycle on his Christmas wish list. It wasn’t long after unwrapping his new ride that he was lining up on local racetracks and establishing himself a local hotshot in hare scrambles and TTs. Zabala first raced a genuine flat tracker in 2014 and turned pro just two years later. He’s been a top-ten AFT Singles race finisher each season since and added an AFT Production Twins top ten in 2018 for good measure. The naturally athletic Zabala was also a standout high school wrestler. That experience allowed him to further hone his balance, body control, and competitive nature. These days, he trains on two wheels across a number of disciplines, riding motocross, woodland, and sand circuits to prepare for the American Flat Track season.
Jared Mees also known by the moniker, The Jammer; is a flat track motorcycle racer born on April 16, 1986, in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania. Mees is etching his name in flat track history as he proves himself time and time again as a dominant racer. His resume boasts of 54 AMA Grand National wins, 7 AMA Grand National Championship titles, 2 X-Games Gold medals, and 2 consecutive Grand Slam wins. Having established himself as a consistent threat on the track, he has set the record for the most podium finishes in a single season – standing proud at 17 of 18 events.
