Wyman’s Last-Lap Crash Blows XR Showdown Standings Wide Open
Shane Narbonne (Teterboro Rams LLC) emerged victorious at the end of a frenetic last lap Sunday to claim his first AMA Pro road racing victory in the Vance & Hines XR1200 series race at New Jersey Motorsports Park, but it was a late crash by championship contender Kyle Wyman that really shook up the series standings with just two races to go in the 2012 season.
A seven-rider pack battled for the lead throughout the 12-lap race, with XR Showdown contenders Wyman (KLR Group/Spyke’s H-D), Tyler O’Hara (Bartels’ H-D/Scrubblade), Benjamin Carlson (Suburban Motors H-D) and polesitter Michael Barnes (KLR Group/Spyke’s H-D) in the mix along with Narbonne, Jake Holden (MOB Racing) and Travis Wyman (Harv’s H-D). Just when Kyle Wyman appeared to be perfectly positioned to make a late drafting pass on Narbonne on the final lap to claim his fifth win of the season, he fell victim to a vicious high-side crash just before the main straight that ended his race in spectacular fashion.
“That’s the worst wreck I’ve ever had and maybe one of the worst I’ve ever even seen,” Wyman said. “The rear tire folded. That just never, ever happens. I just can’t believe this is the outcome.”
Wyman’s misfortune opened the door not only for Narbonne to claim his first career AMA Pro victory, but also threw the race for the XR Showdown wide open, with the top four riders in the standings now separated by only four points with two races remaining in the season.
“I didn’t even really know what lap it was, I just went to the front. I didn’t see the white flag, I just went,” said Narbonne. “It’s good to win at my home track. I’ve been working hard for this.”
As the highest placed finisher among the championship contenders, Barnes may have been the biggest beneficiary of his KLR Group teammate’s misfortune, as he jumped to fourth in the Showdown standings and narrowed his point gap to leader Carlson to four points.
“What a battle,” Barnes said. “So much passing going on and I even lost track of the laps for a minute. I dropped back to sixth at the start of the last lap. I caught Holden pretty quick and just put my head down. When Kyle wrecked it opened a door. I was in fifth place and had a little more time to assess the situation in front of me. Benny and Tyler had to jump on their brakes sooner. That gave me the momentum to get past them.”
The AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 series returns to action September 22-23 at Miami-Homestead Speedway.

Coolbeth Bounces Back from Injury to Top an All-Harley Podium in Iowa
Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle® Factory Team rider Kenny Coolbeth won his first race of the season at the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship event on the Knoxville Raceway half mile. Zanotti Racing/Schaeffer`s Harley-Davison rider Jake Johnson finished second, followed by South East Harley-Davidson rider Sammy Halbert, as Harley-Davidson® XR750 motorcycle racers filled the podium.
The win is a big come-back for Coolbeth, who suffered a fractured leg in a race at Lima, Ohio, on June 30 and missed two Twins races before returning to action on Aug. 18 at the Indianapolis Mile. Coolbeth was competitive and finished fifth at Indy despite having not trained on a motorcycle since his injury. At Knoxville, Coolbeth took the lead on a restart and set the pace for the rest of the 25-lap main event to earn his 27th career Grand National win.
“The Harley team is really meshing right now,” said Coolbeth. “I felt like we were pretty fast right off the trailer tonight, and then every adjustment we made improved the bike. I got by Mees right after the restart and then my Harley was just hooked up, and I could inch away from those guys. We might be out of the hunt for a championship because of the races I missed, but I think the team will make some more noise before the season is over.”
Coolbeth won his heat race to advance to the main, and finished third in the four-lap Dash for Cash sprint bonus race, which was won by Rogers Racing/Blue Springs Harley-Davidson rider Jared Mees.
It was Mees leading the pack at the start of the main, with Johnson, Coolbeth and Dodge Brothers Racing/Perry’s Harley-Davidson rider Brad Baker in pursuit. But the race was stopped after three laps for a downed rider, and Coolbeth jumped from second to first one lap after the restart. Coolbeth led Mees and Johnson by 0.604 seconds on lap nine and gradually pulled away. Coolbeth opened a gap of 1.8 seconds by lap 15, with Mees and Johnson in a tight battle for second place. Mees left the race on lap 16 with a mechanical problem. Baker was out of the race on lap 17. As the laps wound down Johnson whittled away at Coolbeth’s lead, getting within one second on lap 21 and down to 0.501 second at the finish. Halbert was third, 8.913 seconds behind Coolbeth. Robert Pearson was fourth on the Eaken Racing/Dick Ford Kawasaki, followed by Bryan Smith on the Crosley Radio Harley-Davidson.
After 11 of 16 AMA Grand National events, Mees leads the series with 202 points. Johnson moves into second place with 197 points, bumping Halbert down to third with 196 points. Smith is fourth with 136 points. Coolbeth is ninth with 99 points.
The Grand National Twins will next race on September 16 on the Springfield Mile at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield. This event originally scheduled for September 2 was postponed due to heavy rain.
