Spend to win.

That appears to be the philosophy at Harley Davidson when it comes to American Flat Track racing.

The Milwaukee Business Journal reports that the York-based company is investing $ 562,500 to combat surging rival Indian on the racing circuit. This is in response to Indian riders clinching the top three spots in the AFT Twins class.

Included was Indian Wrecking Crew’s Jared “Jammer” Mees sealing the title with two races left at nearby Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg.

So, in response, Harley announced it will pay $ 10,000 per race to riders winning atop XG750R- or XR750-model bikes in any of the circuit’s 18 races in 2018.
