Hayden Gillim won MotoAmerica Mission King Of The Baggers Race One Saturday at rainy New Jersey Motorsports Park, in Millville, New Jersey. Gillim took the lead from his Vance & Hines/Mission Foods Harley-Davidson teammate James Rispoli on lap two and pulled away to win the eight-lap race by 9.100 seconds.
Rispoli said he was uncomfortable in the wet and windy conditions and decided to ride to a safe second place and save taking big chances for the final race of the season on Sunday.
Gillim now leads Rispoli by seven points in the Championship heading into Race Two.
Screamin’ Eagle Harley-Davidson’s Travis Wyman was closing in on Rispoli late in the race, but Wyman ran out of time and had to settle for third place and his first podium finish in the class in 2023.
Wyman’s teammate and older brother Kyle Wyman, a title contender coming into the race, crashed on the warm-up lap. Kyle Wyman got back up and started the race late, behind the Safety Car, but he pulled in at the end of lap two and Did Not Finish (DNF), knocking him out of Championship contention.
