“My team has been working hard to build me a good mile weapon. We’re gonna be ready this year, Jared and the rest of the boys are going to have to deal with me every race,” said 2016 Daytona winner and current points leader Sammy Halbert who rides the number #69 Harley-Davidson.

Three-time AMA Pro Champion Jared Mees who definitely has a target on his back this year is also looking forward to being out on the mile for the first time in 2016.

“I’m looking forward to the first mile of the year in Arizona and beating Bryan Smith and Sammy (Halbert),” commented Mees who rides the #1 plate Harley-Davidson and who is sponsored by Las Vegas Harley-Davidson.

Kawasaki will have a few top riders in the hunt at the Law Tigers Arizona Mile and specifically last year’s Springfield Mile II winner Bryan Smith aboard his Crossley Brands Kawasaki.
