TUCSON, Ariz. (Aug. 16)— The KWR team heads to Napa Valley, California this coming weekend for round seven of the MotoAmerica Cycle Gear Championship at Sonoma Raceway. Kyle Wyman and Bryce Prince look to build on their recent success and break through for podium finishes on their Lucas Oil-sponsored KWR Yamahas.
Wyman, who sits 7th in series points standings, looks forward to Sonoma since the team tested there back in June. The KWR crew and riders gathered valuable information about the circuit, which for Wyman, is one that he is least familiar with.
“I’m really looking forward to Sonoma this year, because we had a good test there back in June after Road America,” Wyman said. “We didn’t get a ton of testing in over the winter, so having a recent test at this track should really put us in a good position. This weekend will be the true test of what we’ve learned and how we approach the weekend. I can’t wait to ride my Lucas Oil R1.”
On the other side of the Lucas Oil/KWR stable, 600 Supersport competitor Bryce Prince is on his way to the front as well. Scoring a season-best 4th place in Utah, the Californian looks to earn his first career podium result in the Supersport class at Sonoma Raceway.
“The Sonoma race this weekend will be a great opportunity for us to apply what we’ve learned over the past few rounds,” Prince said. “My confidence is on an all-time high after our solid results at Utah Motorsports Campus. We have a really good base setup on my KWR R6 and I am really looking forward to how it will stack up against the field.”
