The Tytlers Cycle Racing powered by #RideHVMC Stock 1000 squad leave the final round of the 2022 MotoAmerica Championship disappointed with a double DNF and a sixteenth-place finish but elated on the other hand to have secured a 1-3 finish in the final standings thanks to the efforts of their riders Corey Alexander and Travis Wyman.
With the title wrapped up in New Jersey a fortnight ago, the three-rider squad - which also includes season rookie Zac Schumacher- headed to Alabama confident of another front running performance and after strong qualifying results were optimistic ahead of Saturday’s sole race.
From lights out both Alexander and Wyman were in the mix but an unfortunate on track incident put them both out of podium contention. Zac Schumacher narrowly missed his fifth point scoring finish of the year in P16 but can be proud of what he accomplished in one of the most competitive Stock 1000 championships in the world.
Corey Alexander:“This weekend started off strong but after some set up miscues and getting tangled up with Travis, it left us both off the podium. Not the result we wanted but it doesn’t overshadow all the hard work and amazing results our whole team has been able to make happen this year. I’m thankful to everyone that supports us and look forward to 2023.”
Travis Wyman: “I made a decent start and was running second. I had a bit of a moment when the white flag came out and I went down and unfortunately Corey had nowhere to go and ran me over. Neither of us got to finish and I’m bummed that neither of us could make the podium. I am happy for Corey – he is a deserving champion, and I am happy that I was able to still finish third overall. A big thanks to the entire team for their efforts this year.”
Zac Schumacher: “The race went quite well considering I had never ridden at Barber before. I really enjoyed riding the circuit and was able to throw down some reasonably quick times. I was involved in another race long battle and sadly was unable to make a safe pass so had to settle for sixteenth at the flag. I want to thank the team; it’s been an incredible season and an experience I won’t forget.”
