Kyle Wyman Wins Daytona Vance & Hines XR1200 Race
NEWS March 22, 2011
BATAVIA, NY (March 15th, 2011) - Despite the adversity, Kyle Wyman pulled through for the inaugural AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 series race at Daytona International Speedway to claim his first AMA Pro Road Racing victory. Kyle crossed the line just .016 seconds ahead of RMR/Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Racing/Revolution Performance teammate Chris Fillmore after a last lap pass for the win.
“It’s amazing.” Said Kyle, “Last time I was here I ended up going to the hospital, so it’s always been kind of weird coming back here (Daytona International Speedway), but I was able to put it out of my mind and go out there and win. More importantly I was able to put out all the adversity of this week, because we were just down to the wire, like Chris said. It’s amazing to be first and go 1-2 for the team after all we’ve been through.”
The week leading up to the race turned into a last minute thrash as the team encountered problems with the motors after testing at Jennings GP the weekend before. Kyle’s bike arrived at the speedway just 45 minutes before the first qualifying session.
“Big hats off to my Dad and the Daytona Harley crew for all the hard work they put in for the team – without them here we wouldn’t have been able to grid up for the race.”
Kyle will lead the championship points race in the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 series going into the next round at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California.
“I feel confident for the rest of the season,” said the New Yorker, “I have my first win out of the way, so now I can concentrate on going out there and performing as well as I can without much pressure. Infineon is a track I’ve never been to, so I’m eager to get out there and see what I can do.”
Kyle would like to thank his sponsors:
Richie Morris Racing, Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Racing, Revolution Performance, Geico Powersports, Lucas Oil, Race Tech, EBC, Arai Helmets, Held USA, Sidi, Motion Pro, Pilot Leathers, Kicker Performance Audio and Webster Dental Group.
