BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (June 22, 2014) - Kyle Wyman finished a hard-earned 11th place in today's AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike race, improving from his 15th place grid spot. The field battled scorching heat over a shortened 17-lap dash.

"That was one of the hardest races I've ever ridden," Wyman said. "It was really a survival of the fittest. We are getting closer on the setup of my Yamaha R6 and have some changes in our back pocket to try tomorrow morning. I think we will be able to bridge the gap to the group running ahead of us."

Wyman wasn't finished riding after the exhausting Daytona Sportbike race. He changed leathers and climbed onto his Millennium Technologies Harley-Davidson XR1200, coming away with the third-fastest time of the session and putting him on the provisional front row.

"I've found more and more comfort over the past few weekends with the Nitron suspension," Wyman added. "Lenny Albin has been working hard on our new components and we still haven't tapped the full potential of the forks or the shocks. I'm confident for the upcoming race tomorrow and will be doing everything I can do get my mind and body in shape for a long day."
