MILLVILLE, N.J. (Sept. 16, 2013) -- Millennium Technologies rider Kyle Wyman rode to season-best finishes in the AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike series this past weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park, scoring 12th and 13th place results in each race.

Wyman, coming back from a mid-June injury of the right wrist, put his Triumph Daytona 675R closer to the top ten during the penultimate round of the AMA Pro Road Racing series.

"To be where I'm at, this close to the top ten, is like a win for me," Wyman said. "It was a long three months off after breaking my wrist on a bicycle and it was frustrating to be sitting on the sidelines. I'm so happy to be back racing again and to have my season best finishes my first race back. We are getting the bike closer each time I ride it and I look forward to representing Millennium Technologies again in the final round at Laguna Seca."

Also competing in the Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson series at NJMP, Wyman finished an impressive 5th after starting in the back of the field due to a penalty imposed based on AMA Pro Racing testing regulations.

"I spent some time here at NJMP doing some testing, but was mainly here focused on marketing for the AMA Pro Racing event," Wyman said. "It was a great way to come back into the series - staying at the track every day definitely helped me get my mind back into the riding aspect after so much time, but also allowed me to work with the track and help bring more fans out to the races. I want to thank the track for allowing me to partner up with them."

The AMA Pro Racing series heads to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for the final round of the championship September 27-29, 2013. Wyman will compete in both the AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike Championship as well as the AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson series.

"I've been waiting for too long to ride at Laguna," said Wyman. "It's the only track on the circuit that I've never ridden at, so I'm really looking forward to getting on the track because I've heard so many good things about it. Being on the world stage with the WSBK championship will be an added bonus."
