Daytona Bike Week
Kyle Wyman broke free from an exciting four-rider drafting pack to make a dramatic last lap pass to earn his first professional road racing win on his Harley-Davidson XR1200 motorcycle in the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 series season opener at 2011 Daytona International Speedway March 11.

The first AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 event to take to Daytona asphalt manifested as a draft-laden, four-rider battle for the lead that featured an unrelenting string of monster sling-shot passes between RMR Bruce Rossmeyer Daytona Racing’s Kyle Wyman and Chris Fillmore, Latus Motors Racing’s Joe Kopp, and Parts Unlimited-supported rider Steve Rap
A hot Sunday afternoon greeted Round Six of the AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Twins Championship as the series moved to the challenging mile oval of Beulah Park in Grove City, Ohio for the Flying Horse Mile.
Latus Harley-Davidson / Screamin’ Eagle’s No. 3 Joe Kopp did the unheard of in Sunday’s mile track AMA Pro Flat Track event. The Washington veteran not only led every lap, but he pulled away to a 22-second lead over last year’s Beulah Park winner, No. 42 Bryan Smith (Screamin’ Eagle Harley-Davidson / Moroney’s Harley-Davidson).
An intense thunderstorm that moved over Black Hills Speedway on Tuesday evening caused the cancellation of the AMA Grand National Twins race there. The racing program had started on time and progressed through qualifying and the first three heat races before the storm dropped heavy rain that made the track surface un-raceable.
