JARED MEES : The Jammer
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 48 AMA Grand National wins, 6 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.
At the age of 5, Jared Mees began racing on a PW50 with his father’s influence. Racing built a lasting father-son connection that was fueled by weekends at the track. He turned pro at the age of 16 while simultaneously forging a path as a varsity high school wrestler at Pequea Valley High School.
After graduating in 2004, Mees moved to Clio, Michigan where his relationship with the budding flat track star, Nichole Mees, would flourish. Nichole Mees (formerly Nichole Cheza) established herself as one of the winningest females to race in the AMA Grand National Championships landing in 32 finals from 2007-2015.The power couple got married in 2013 at the legendary Springfield Mile and had their first child, Hayden, in 2017.
When his tires are not drifting in the dirt, Jared Mees engages in a host of other tactical ventures. Having gained promotional rights in 2016 to one of his favorite events to date, the Lima Half Mile, Mees diversifies his talents in efforts to give back to the racing community. Outside of flat track, he focuses time and energy into real estate investments, physical fitness, and most important of all – family time.
Jared Mees is a force to be reckoned with as a well-rounded racer and businessman. His grit and tenacity remain intact as he pursues the 2020 season with no calm in sight. His aim remains pointed at securing yet another AMA Grand National Championship and plowing down some more records while he is at it.
