Moving Forward: The Wyman Brothers
NEWS August 19, 2010
MACEDON, N.Y. (August 19th, 2010) - In it’s second year of AMA Pro Road Racing competition, the Wyman Brothers Racing team has been making steps forward, and this past weekend at Virginia International Raceway was no exception. Kyle, Travis and Cody competed at the White Lightning Nationals filling five entries in three different divisions.
Oldest brother Kyle Wyman scored his first top ten finish in AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike presented by AMSOIL after only his fourth entry in the class with an 8th place finish in race one on the #133 Harv’s Harley-Davidsion/RevisionMusic.com Yamaha YZF-R6.
“I was feeling comfortable all weekend,” said Kyle. “I had a good feeling during the week after riding the WERA Endurance race the weekend before. It definitely helped having the track fresh in my mind going into the AMA Pro weekend.”
Race two was contrasting; Kyle was running in 7th position when the bike found a false neutral between turns two and three, causing him to crash.
“We had been fighting the false neutral issue on and off throughout the weekend. It’s one of those things that is really hard to predict, and unfortunately it bit us on Sunday. It’s a bummer, because I was even closer to the front than I was on Saturday and was looking forward to pushing it with those guys for the whole race. The 8th place finish in race one was still a great boost of confidence and I can’t wait to get to New Jersey!”
Middle brother Travis Wyman earned his first career AMA Pro Road Racing podium finish in the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series on Sunday aboard his #24 Harv’s Harley-Davidson/AB-1 Motorsports machine.
“It feels great to be on the box,” said Travis, “"I thought Stump was going to be there for most of the race because he kept passing me going into one. At the end Danny was messing around backing it in left and right and spraying dirt in my face all through the esses. Eighteen laps on these seems like a long time but it was a lot of fun."
Travis also placed 4th and 6th in AMA Pro SuperSport races one and two.
“We were having problems with my ‘A’ bike in the morning warm-up on Sunday, so we switched to the spare bike and I went faster than I had all weekend. I was happy with 4th place but I feel with a better start I could have battled for the podium spot,” said Travis, “I think I will be competitive for the podium at New Jersey; it’s a track that I know very well.”
Cody Wyman, the youngest of the brothers improved to placing 15th in SuperSport race two in only his second ever AMA Pro Road Racing event.
