Brothers Travis and Kyle Wyman to Race Factory Road Glide Special Bikes at Road America’s King of the Baggers Series
By Kali Kotoski
Racer Travis Wyman has joined Harley-Davidson’s Screamin’ Eagle factory racing team for MotoAmerica’s King of the Baggers road racing series. Wyman will race a factory-prepared Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special powered by a modified Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight 131 Performance Crate Engine.
Travis joins his brother, Kyle Wyman, on Harley-Davidson’s two-rider team for the King of the Baggers race. Travis will make his debut on June 11-13 at Road America near Elkhart Lake, Wis.
Harley-Davidson is also offering a nearly $30,000 cash contingency program for qualified Harley-Davidson racers competing in the King of the Baggers series.
“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 two brothers could unseat Indian Motorcycle’s dominance in the series thus far. In the series debut, Kyle Wyman placed second on the Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special.
Travis Wyman is the owner of Travis Wyman Racing, based in Las Vegas. He is currently also competing in MotoAmerica Stock 1000, Honos Superbike and Superbike Cup. The 29-year-old racer finished the 2020 MotoAmerica season in second place in the Superbike Cup and third in the Stock 1000 championship.
