Kyle Wyman has been the top racer for the factory H-D King Of The Baggers race team, and now he’s joined by brother Travis aboard a second Screamin’ Eagle Road Glide, debuting this weekend at Road America near Elkhart Lake, Wis.
Travis Wyman competed in the MotoAmerica King of the Baggers race last October at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, scoring a fourth-place finish aboard a Road Glide. The 29-year-old also competes in MotoAmerica Stock 1000, Honos Superbike and Superbike Cup classes. Travis and Kyle Wyman are the sons of Kim Wyman, owner of Harv’s Harley-Davidson in Macedon, N.Y.
“We are ready to turn up the heat in MotoAmerica at our home track of Road America by adding Travis to the Screamin’ Eagle factory team,” said Jochen Zeitz, chairman, president, and CEO Harley-Davidson. “The King of the Baggers series is bringing big excitement for fans, and we’re pleased to add to the show by expanding our team to two top riders representing Harley-Davidson and Screamin’ Eagle.”
The three-round MotoAmerica King of the Baggers series is for race-prepared, American V-Twin touring motorcycles equipped with a fairing and saddlebags. In the series debut on May 2 at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, Kyle Wyman placed second on the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle factory Road Glide Special motorcycle.
In addition to its factory team effort, Harley-Davidson is offering a nearly $30,000 cash contingency program for qualified Harley-Davidson racers competing in the King of the Baggers series.
Round two of the King of the Baggers series is June 11-13 at Road America near Elkhart Lake, Wis. The series continues July 9-11 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, Calif.
