Corey Alexander and Tytlers Cycle Racing powered by #RideHVMC are the 2022 MotoAmerica Stock 1000 Champions.
Alexander, who finished fifth in the penultimate round of the series at New Jersey Motorsports Park, clinched the title with one round remaining. A strong qualifying ensured the #23 was in contention for the podium throughout the category’s single race at NJMP, but with spots of rain falling Corey played it safe, claiming fifth at the flag to clinch the crown.
The was further jubilation for the squad as Travis Wyman powered his BMW M1000 RR onto the podium in second, keeping the possibility of a 1-2 overall finish in the final standings a reality after a gutsy performance once again.
The team’s third rider Zac Schumacher finished just outside of the points scoring places in eighteenth.
With the championship in their maiden season secure, the result also gives BMW a US National title with the machine that has also made its debut in MotoAmerica this season – the BMW M1000 RR.
Corey Alexander:“I am delighted to clinch the MotoAmerica Stock 1000 title at NJMP after coming close to it the previous two years. This was the focus for the weekend and the culmination of a great team effort all season. I knew where I had to finish to take the crown but it would have been nice to have been on the podium but there will be other races where we can fight now that the title is secured. We had great pace all weekend and I am sure we could have fought with the front guys, but the plan was to play it smart. I am looking forward to riding at Barber without any pressure and I want to finish by thanking the entire team, all my sponsors and the fans that came out this weekend.”
Travis Wyman:“It was good race. I was leading in the first half and had a great fight for the win. I’m sitting third in points with a shot at second in the final round at Barber and so that is now the focus. Congratulations to Corey on the title – let’s end the year on the box.”
Zac Schumacher:“I made a decent start in the first part of the race, but the race was stopped because of the weather. In the restart I got boxed in at Turn 1 but was able to recover. I learned a lot riding in the damp conditions and had a good battle but in the end just missed the points. I am looking forward to the final round and hope to end the season in the points. I want to congratulate Corey and the team on their championship win!”
