LAS VEGAS — Travis Wyman was at the top of his game at the 2018 MotoAmerica Championship of Virginia, and he’s aiming for a repeat performance when the series returns to VIRginia International Raceway on May 4-5.
The Weir Everywhere Racing BMW rider and Las Vegas resident was the class of the Stock 1000 field at VIR last season. Wyman put the team’s BMW S 1000 RR at the top of the time sheets in every Stock 1000 practice and qualifying session and led every lap of the race, winning by a commanding 9.707-second margin.
The team is coming off its MotoAmerica Superbike Class debut three weeks ago at Circuit of the Americas, where Wyman scored a top 10 finish.
“We have had a lot of success at VIR, and I feel like I am finally getting back to the same fitness level I was at last season,” Wyman said. “VIR’s fast, flowing track layout really suited the BMW last season, and the track is one of my favorites on the MotoAmerica schedule. We gained a lot of setup knowledge by racing our BMW S 1000 RR at Circuit of the Americas, and I think the data we collected there will help us be right back at the front of the Stock 1000 field this weekend.”
Wyman currently sits fourth in the 2019 Stock 1000 championship points standings and is hoping to gain some ground on his title rivals on the picturesque 2.25-mile North Course at VIRginia International Raceway.
Wyman’s responsibilities at VIR don’t end when the Championship of Virginia comes to a close on Sunday. He will be sticking around to teach several schools with the BMW-affiliated California Superbike School. One-day schools are scheduled for May 6 and 7, followed by a two-day camp May 8-9.
