Daytona Beach, Fla. –Team Eco-Fuel Saver/Scrubblade/Bartel’s Harley-Davidson’s Tyler O’Hara tops the field of 25 in a spectacular finish besting Kyle Wyman’s XR1200 by a slim .075 of a second. Third place finisher Bobby Fong was just .289 behind the lead riders, himself enveloped by competitors in what had to be one of the all-time closest finishes in AMA Pro competition. Michael Barnes led out of the chicane on the final lap and ended up an incredible 7th reflecting just how important race winning strategy is at Daytona! O’Hara put it all together after a race-long duel consisting of the top 11 XR1200s that thundered across the finish line a mere .792 of a second apart after 7 laps of incredible back and forth competition. Tyler planned his race in advance figuring he had a shot at the win if he was somewhere in the top 5 or 6 riders exiting the chicane. “I told my dad that I could win from about fifth or sixth. It was like, ‘slingshot, engage.’ It’s all about putting yourself in the right place at the right time here. It feels really good to come out of here with a win!”

Daytona marked O’Hara’s sixth win in the class, making him the all-time leader in victories in the growing Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson series. He also led the most laps.
Josh Chisum, the team’s owner as well as manager and racer himself had a hard crash in the chicane during practice and did not compete in the final. “I’m super excited for Tyler, our team, and all of our sponsors! That’s why we’re win races and hopefully grab this championship for all of our sponsors. Hopefully we can carry this momentum forward and grab some more wins. I like it this way!” said Chisum.
