25: The number of AFT rounds since an Indian FTR750 didn't win the premier class race. The last non-Indian rider to win a national was JD Beach, on the Estenson Yamaha MT-07, at the Buffalo Chip TT, on 4 August 2019. That was the race that Jake Johnson was leading when his bike lost power within sight of the line and JD overtook him, winning by 0.2s, for a unique Estenson Yamaha Twins 1-2.
Since Beach's win, five different riders have won on Indians.
Jared Mees - 11
Briar Bauman - 9
Brandon Robinson - 3
Jeffrey Carver - 1
Sammy Halbert - 1
Will Indian sweep the year, like they did in 2020 - the only year they've managed to win every race since they debuted full-time in 2017, or can someone cause an upset (because that's what it would be)?
