MACEDON, N.Y. (June 19) - Fresh off of his Road America Harley-Davidson series victory, Millennium Technologies rider Kyle Wyman will be chasing additional championship points at this coming weekend's AMA Pro Road Racing event at Barber Motosports Park. Wyman will be pulling double-duty once again competing in both the Harley-Davidson and Daytona Sportbike categories.
Wyman's last trip to Barber was a successful one. He won the Harley-Davidson series race there in 2012 after a race-long battle with rival and current series points leader Tyler O'Hara.
"I've been looking forward to this event since the checkered flag flew at Road America," Wyman said. "I've never been more hungry to race as I am now. The motivation I carried into the last race has far from worn off, and I can't wait to head back out on both of my Millennium Technologies machines. In the Harley class we have an 18-point gap to make up, so I'm determined to chip away at the deficit."
The first two rounds of the AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike series have left Wyman in 6th place in points, after putting in a strong effort at Road America with two 8th place finishes to his credit. The 600cc class is a new venture for KWR, and bike familiarity will play a key role in their climb to the top five.
"I'm really happy to be where we are in points on the Yamaha," said Wyman. "We have a short season but we've been making rapid progress with the bike. We've finished 6th a few times in this class and I think Barber will give us a great opportunity for a top five. I have faith in my crew and the bike, and I'm feeling fit and prepared for the heat."
