Travis Wyman and Weir Everywhere Racing are pleased to announce they will be competing in the inaugural season of the MotoAmerica Stock 1000 Championship. The team will compete in all eight MotoAmerica rounds the Stock 1000 class will be featured in with the goal of winning the class title for BMW.
The team has enjoyed a strong preseason that has seen them take one win, three podiums, and eight top-five finishes in select Lucas Oil WERA West Sportsman Series and Chuckwalla Valley Motorcycle Association Winter Series races. The team will look to carry their on-track success and excellent teamwork into the opening round of the 2018 MotoAmerica season at Road Atlanta, April 13-15.
“I am excited to announce Steve Weir and I will be going forward with our plans to compete in MotoAmerica’s new Stock 1000 class,” Wyman said. “After last season, I was preparing to take my racing career in a very different direction. However, MotoAmerica’s decision to create the Stock 1000 class and my new partnership with Steve have given me an exciting new opportunity to continue my MotoAmerica career. The class’ emphasis on controlling costs and the strength of the BMW package have provided me with a great platform to showcase my talent. I am looking forward to using my 10 years of professional road racing experience, as well as my relationships with Lenny Albin from K-Tech Suspension and Steve Weir to show what this BMW S1000RR is capable of. I am also happy to continue our team’s relationship with Marino Communications and BrockImaging for the 2018 MotoAmerica season. Their partnership has been a big help to us with getting the word out about our pre-season successes. We are looking forward continuing our relationship with them to provide our sponsors with the visibility and value they deserve.”
The pairing will also continue their ongoing relationship with Marino Communications and BrockImaging into the 2018 MotoAmerica season. Marino Communications will continue providing the team with media relations services, including the production of press releases and sponsorship proposals BrockImaging will provide the team and its sponsors with professional photography and graphic design services.
Weir is also excited and ready to get the 2018 season going.
“Working with Travis and the team over the last few months has been like watching a perfect storm come together,” Weir said. “I could not be happier with the progress we have made in getting our BMW S1000RR ready for the 2018 MotoAmerica season. We have had several new sponsors join our effort and will have Alex Torres working with us as our chief mechanic. In my opinion, Alex is one of the best mechanics in the country and he will have a tremendous positive impact on the team as we work toward our goal of winning the inaugural MotoAmerica Stock 1000 title. I would like to extend a big thank you to BMW Motorrad North America and BMW Motorrad Germany for giving me the opportunity to work with them over the past couple years. I am also grateful for the support they will be providing us with this season. I really believe we have a legitimate shot at winning the class title and am looking forward to getting our season underway at Road Atlanta in April.”
