INDIANAPOLIS, IN, AUG. 9 – Harley-Davidson of Bloomington’s Jeremy McWilliams repeated last year’s performance and took the first win of the AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson double-header at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As McWilliams predicted in the post qualifying press conference, it was a tight race. He led the most laps across the line, but McWilliams just wasn’t able to break away.
Right on his tail and eager to win his first race, Suburban Motors Harley-Davidson’s Benny Carlson gave the former MotoGP rider a run for his money, but just got edged out across the line. Making a comeback from seventh to join the pair on the podium was KWR’s Kyle Wyman.
Also in the hunt with the lead pack was wild card rider Ramden Rosli on the other KWR XR1200 and Carlson’s teammate Steve Rapp. The young Malaysian CEV Moto3 rider finished fourth in his first race on a Harley and his first ever at Indy, with Rapp settling for fifth.
In Sixth was Harv’s Harley-Davidson’s Travis Wyman, followed by series-points leader Danny Eslick on the Ruthless Racing XR1200. The man trailing Eslick in the championship – Josh Chisum Racing’s Tyler O’Hara – finished in eighth.
And rounding out the top ten was Hayden Schutlz and David Estok.
