Travis Wyman Racing will be a two-rider team for the remainder of the 2021 season. The team welcomes to its ranks Chris Clark, 14, of Fairfax, Va., who will compete at all four of this year’s MotoAmerica Mini Cup by Motul rounds in the Ohvale 160 and Ohvale 190 classes.
Clark is both an accomplished mini road racer and an established social media influencer. He kicked off his mini road racing career at age 12; has amassed more than 15 wins and more than 35 podiums in about 50 race starts; and has more than 220,000 followers on TikTok. Clark competed in the 2020 MotoAmerica Mini Cup Series, finishing 18th in the 160 Class standings.
“I’m happy to have Chris on board as a member of the Travis Wyman Racing team,” Travis Wyman said. “I think Chris has a very bright future ahead of him in road racing, and I’m looking forward to working with Chris and his family at MotoAmerica’s Mini Cup rounds this year.”
The MotoAmerica Mini Cup by Motul gets underway at the next MotoAmerica round, which takes place June 11-13 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis. The remaining three rounds are scheduled for June 25-27 at The Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, Wash.; Aug. 13-15 at Pittsburgh International Race Complex in Wampum, Pa.; and Sept. 17-19 at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Ala.
“I’m so excited to be joining Travis Wyman Racing for the 2021 season,” Clark said. “I think racing alongside Travis will make me a better rider, and I can’t wait for the Mini Cup season to get started.”
Clark’s Ohvales will run a similar paint scheme to Wyman’s 2020 BMW S 1000 RR, and Clark’s leathers are patterned after Wyman’s. In addition to competing in the Mini Cup, Clark plans to continue racing in his local mini road racing series, which include DMV MiniGP, NJ MiniGP and the Sandy Hook Speedway Mini Moto Series.
Clark’s sponsors for the 2021 season include Bison Leathers, Karn’s Performance, Bimola Helmets, TechSpec Tank Grips, MoTool, Factory Effex, GoPro and Slick Products.
