The Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle factory team adds racer Travis Wyman to its ranks for the MotoAmerica King of the Baggers racing series. He’s racing a factory-prepared H-D Road Glide Special powered by a modified Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight 131 Performance Crate Engine. He joins his brother, Kyle Wyman, on the two-rider team. Travis debuts at the King of the Baggers race June 11-13 at Road America near Elkhart Lake, Wis.
In addition to its factory team effort, H-D offers a nearly $30,000 cash contingency program for qualified Harley-Davidson racers competing in the bagger-centric 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 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.”
Travis owns Travis Wyman Racing, based in Las Vegas. Currently he also competes 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. Travis also competed in the MotoAmerica King of the Baggers invitational race last October at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. There, he scored a fourth-place finish aboard a Harley-Davidson Road Glide. Kyle and Travis Wyman are the sons of Kim Wyman, owner of Harv’s Harley-Davidson in Macedon, N.Y.
Round two of the King of the Baggers series takes place June 11-13 at Road America near Elkhart Lake, Wis. The series continues July 9-11 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, Calif.
