P.a few days more and the less orthodox – and more American possible – series of races of speed will open the 2022 season: we start from the double appointment at Daytona International Speedway on March 10 for the MotoAmerica Mission King of the Baggerswhere the winning team in 2021 is ready to defend the title: the official team Harley-Davidson Screamin ‘Eagle factory racing will field reigning champion Kyle Wyman (# 1) and his brother Travis Wyman (# 10)also confirming the Harley-Davidson Road Glide equipped with Screamin ‘Eagle engines Milwaukee-Eight 131 Performance Crateobviously appropriately modified according to the regulation, by 2147 of the Italian Civil Code.
They are planned for 2022 seven racesindicative number of the interest aroused by the singular category, all in conjunction with the Superbike MotoAmerica: the two Wyman brothers will push their baggers to the maximum.
Kyle Wymanthirty-two years old, he is a true veteran And son of art: the father is the owner of the Harley-Davidson of Harv in Macedonia, with a past in the land of flat tack aboard the Harley-Davidson XR750 and victorious in six races in the AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson XR1200 series, in the Daytona 200 and with placings in the HONOS Superbike, as well as obviously winning the first edition of the King of the Baggers championship held last year in reduced form (only three of the five scheduled events) due to the pandemic.
“I am really looking forward to defending this championship withHarley-Davidson Factory Team“, Kyle said.” The longer season will require us to be prepared to be consistent “citing the need that seven races are still few in order to afford a misstep that could compromise the entire championship. On the double date at Daytona, Kyle comments: “It will be a special challenge because we have never ridden these bikes on high bankswhich require a lot of time with the engine at high revs “.
T.ravis Wyman, the team’s second driver, is also the owner of Travis Wyman Racing, based in Las Vegas.

Travis joined the Screamin ‘Eagle team in 2021 when the season had already started. in the extended season I will also have the opportunity to race on some tracks where I have done well in the past, including Daytona and Road Atlanta. It should be an exciting season. “
Qui the program of the 2022 MotoAmerica Mission King of the Baggers championship:
March 10-12: (Two races) Daytona International Raceway – Daytona Beach, FL.

It will certainly be one nice challenge between Indian and Harley-Davidson – we remind you that by regulation only two-cylinder Touring and Cruiser models are allowed, so don’t even think about arriving with a six-cylinder like the BMW K1600 B and winning the title hands down – but above all it will be interesting to see you compete with the Baggers, probably on circuits never seen before, including MotoGP veteran Jeremy McWilliams, just hired by Indian.
