Wyman scores two victories in first time racing at Buttonwillow Raceway Park ahead of MotoAmerica season opener
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 27, 2021
LAS VEGAS — When Travis Wyman took pole and a victory in the first-ever MotoAmerica Stock 1000 race in 2018, California Superbike School had already joined his team’s family of sponsors. Four years later, the Keith Code-founded school is the team’s title sponsor for MotoAmerica’s 2021 season-opening round, which takes place April 30-May 2 at the Road Atlanta circuit in Braselton, Ga.
California Superbike School uses the same BMW S 1000 RR model that Wyman races as part of its multi-level curriculum, and Wyman — who is one of the school’s instructors — has helped teach that curriculum at racetracks across the country and internationally.
“Keith and Dylan Code and the other coaches at the school have supported my racing career for years,” Wyman said. “I’m happy to promote a school that I’ve witnessed help so many motorcyclists become better, faster riders.”
Founded in 1976, California Superbike School’s step-by-step training methodology has been used by about 150,000 students through its in-person schools and countless others through Keith Code’s columns, books and more – including 65 world- and national-level motorcycle racing champions. The school also will have its fleet of BMW S 1000 RRs on display at Road Atlanta for attendees to check out.
After having little or no seat time aboard the team’s BMW the last two offseasons, Wyman has taken part in three racing events in the weeks leading up to the Road Atlanta round. Most recently, Wyman scored two victories and a fourth place – from 18th on the starting grid – during his first time racing at Buttonwillow Raceway Park on Sunday. Road Atlanta is one of Wyman’s favorite tracks and is where he scored the first of his three wins aboard a BMW.
The team thanks Irv Seaver BMW of Orange, Calif., for its generous support of the team’s off-season testing and development program.
“I feel very well prepared for the season, much more so than I have the past three years,” Wyman said. “I have the confidence that I can start pushing the bike from the first lap of practice instead of having to get back into the grove of riding a motorcycle at its limit. My crew chief, Steve Weir, and mechanic, Alex Torres, are very excited at the pace we showed at Buttonwillow, and my past success at Road Atlanta has me feeling good about our chances of claiming at least one victory there.”
Wyman will be competing in the same two classes he did in 2020 – Superbike Cup and Stock 1000 – and is due to take part in four races at the Road Atlanta round.
The first Stock 1000 race takes place at 1 p.m. Eastern on Saturday, and Wyman will be back on Road Atlanta’s 2.55-mile road course at 3 p.m. Eastern for the first Superbike race of 2021. Sunday’s Stock 1000 contest gets underway at noon Eastern, with the Superbike Class taking to the track at 3 p.m. Eastern.
All races are aired live on MotoAmerica Live+, and the Superbike races are broadcast live on Fox Sports 1. For more information on MotoAmerica Live+, visit http://www.motoamericaliveplus.com.
