In a race interrupted by a red flag and then rain, Travis Wyman kept a cool head to bring his Screamin’ Eagle Harley Davidson Road Glide home in second place at the Brainerd International Raceway, Minnesota. In doing so, the Las Vegas racer put himself at the top of the 2022 Mission King of the Baggers Championship standings.

Wearing his carbon black Bilmola USA RC-1 for the Baggers, Travis ran consistently at the front through practice and qualifying to start from third on the grid. After a promising getaway, with Travis again maintaining his position up front, the race was red-flagged on lap 2 after an oil spill from one of the other machines. Following the clean-up and restart, Travis got into a three-way battle for the lead and was looking good as a potential race winner when it began to rain. With only two laps remaining and therefore more than 75 percent of race distance completed, the red flag came out again and Travis was awarded second place.

We’ll have to wait until the Mission King of the Baggers Grand Finale at New Jersey on September 9-11 to see whether Travis takes the title. In the meantime, you can see him back on board his BMW S1000-RR for the next MotoAmerica outing at Pittsburgh on August 19-21.
We’ll see you there!
