The 2022 MotoAmerica season started with Cody Wyman and his dad/crew chief Bob Wyman campaigning their Kawasaki Ninja 400 in SportbikeTrackGear.com Junior Cup, and it has gone well: The youngest of three racing Wyman brothers led the points after the recent event at Brainerd International Raceway.

In the racing world success creates opportunity, and just before Road Atlanta Cody signed to also campaign the Wrench Motorcycles Yamaha R7 in Twins Cup.

At about the time that deal was happening, Cody got a call from the Army of Darkness endurance team and jumped aboard the team’s Yamaha YZF-R1 to contribute to a pair of second-place finishes in the first two N2/WERA National Endurance by Dunlop races.

Oh, and the Screamin’ Eagle Harley-Davidson factory team signed Cody as a test rider to help brothers Travis and Kyle win in the MotoAmerica Mission King Of The Baggers championship.
