After a mechanical problem ruled him out of contention for race 1 at New Jersey Motorsports Park, Team RidersDiscount.com / Jake Holden Racing extended to Kyle Wyman the opportunity to ride a Ducati 848EVO for the very last Daytona SportBike race of 2011. Kyle’s race weekend came to a halt when his Yamaha YZF-R6’s motor let go halfway through Saturday’s race 1. Because that team didn’t have a spare motor, Kyle left New Jersey Motorsports Park Saturday night ready to go home until a chance encounter with Breeann Poland at a local restaurant gave him another chance to come back and do it all again Sunday at NJMP!
Kyle Wyman – “Firstly, I would like to thank Witchkraft Racing and Sport bike Track Gear for the opportunity they gave me to compete this weekend in Daytona SportBike. Without their support, I wouldn’t be in a position to compete tomorrow. I’m excited to get the opportunity to ride the Ducati 848 EVO and am really looking forward to the challenge. It was just coincidence that I got together with Breeann and she told me that they had two fresh Ducati 848EVO’s ready to go in the top of the trailer. I’ve only ridden a bone stock 848 down at Little Talladega in April of this year. So basically, I get 20 minutes to practice on the bike and then we go racing. It’s going to be fun and I really love riding as many bikes as I can. I’m amazed with the people that are behind me this weekend and I hope to make them all proud!”
Breeann Poland, owner Jake Holden Racing – “I’ve always wanted to give Kyle an opportunity to ride with us. He’s certainly got the talent and I’m really proud to get him on a good team with a great crew. We want him to end the season on a high note and with the two Ducati 848EVO’s ready in the trailer, I wasn’t going to pass up this chance to work with him!”
Brian Gibson, owner RidersDiscount.com – “We just want to see racers race and we just happened to have spare Ducati 848EVO’s in the garage here at Team RidersDiscount.com / Jake Holden Racing. After a couple of quick chats, everyone in the team agreed that it would be great to have another bike in our colors on the grid. We’re all behind Kyle and happy to give him a bike that has proven to be fast. We’ve got nothing to lose here so Sunday is going to be an exciting day for everyone at NJMP!”
