King of the Baggers prepares for Road Atlanta

The weekend is upon us and MotoAmerica’s Mission King of the Baggers series kicks off this weekend at Road Atlanta.

SDI/Roland Sands Racing/Indian Motorcycle’s Bobby Fong led Friday’s Mission King Of The Baggers qualifying session with a new Road Atlanta lap record of 1:29.528.

Second fastest on the opening day was Troy Herfoss, the S&S/Indian Motorcycle-backed Australian who was just 0.192 seconds behind Fong’s best on his first visit to Road Atlanta.

Championship points leader Kyle Wyman was third fastest on the factory Harley-Davidson, despite crashing in 10-A early in the session. Wyman’s best was 0.265 seconds slower than Fong’s.

Defending Mission King Of The Baggers champion Hayden Gillim set the fourth fastest time, a few tenths faster than his rookie teammate Rocco Landers.

The session was a bit of a crash fest as Kyle Wyman wasn’t the only faller. He was joined in the 10-A gravel by his teammate James Rispoli and his brother Travis Wyman. Tyler O’Hara was also a faller in the session.
