WAMPUM, Pa. (Aug. 24) — The MotoAmerica championship heads to its eighth round of the series this weekend at Pittsburgh International Race Complex. Kyle Wyman will ride his #33 Décor Brilliance/Lucas Oil/KWR Yamaha YZF-R1 Superbike as professional racing will debut at “Pitt Race” for the first time, ever.
Wyman, who considers Pitt Race his home track, was born in Rochester, N.Y., just 270 miles from the circuit which will hold its first ever major motorsports event this weekend.
“Although I don’t have too much time on this race track in its new and improved configuration, I would consider it my home track,” Wyman said. “New Jersey has been that race for me in the past, but this track is three hours of driving time less for me from my home town. The air and the landscape here is just like home.”
Wyman heads into the Pittsburgh round after a successful official test at the circuit back in May, where he finished with the third fastest time overall. With the final three rounds on the east coast of the U.S., Wyman feels his chances are high to find the podium with track familiarity on his side.
“Our test here in the spring was very successful because we learned a lot about our 2017 bike,” Wyman said. “Unfortunately it was after that test that I got injured in the U.K. for the European Superstock race, and that kind of killed my momentum. Now we’re back to Pittsburgh, with New Jersey and Barber to finish out the season. There’s good vibes around these tracks for me and I look forward to what’s in store for the whole Décor Brilliance/KWR team.”
