McWilliams To Wildcard in Harley-Davidson Races

Former MotoGP star Jeremy McWilliams will once again make a return to the MotoGP arena at the Red Bull Indianapolis GP on August 8-10. The 2010 UK Harley-Davidson® XR1200® Trophy Champion will race in the AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series for the double header.

McWilliams is no stranger to Harley-Davidson XR1200® racing. Riding for London-based Warr's Harley-Davidson Racing, McWilliams took the inaugural title by a 41-point lead and chalked up seven pole positions en route. This led to an invite to enter the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200® at Barber 2010, where he rode for the roadracingworld.com/HOG racing team. McWilliams took the win in style, leading every lap of the race.

McWilliams will return to the AMA/MotoGP paddock once again, riding for multi award-winning dealer, Harley-Davidson of Bloomington, Indiana with support from Warr’s Racing, having previously ridden for the team at the XR1200® round at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2013 and took the Race 1 win. Jeremy McWilliams won out following a spectacular four-way battle to the checkered flag by a scant 0.039 seconds.

Jeff Stevens, owner of Harley-Davidson of Bloomington, is a Harley-Davidson motorcycle drag racer, four time AHDRA National champion, the 2010 H-D/Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod® Destroyer Champion and team owner with many years of experience on the track. Being a racer himself he understands the demands of running at the front of the field.

Stevens said: "Having Jeremy ride for Bloomington H-D in 2013 for the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200® races was such a pleasure and it’s great that our schedules have worked out so we can repeat this experience. We came away with the win and that was amazing. To be able to race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and have McWilliams ride for us is truly a fantastic opportunity. Racing is an important part of H-D of Bloomington." www.indianaharley.com.

John Warr, owner of Warr’s Harley-Davidson and ex racer said: “We have worked with Jeremy for many years and we could not turn this opportunity down to once again compete at Indy. In line with our 90th Anniversary celebration’s we continue to strive for success both on the track and in our stores. We have a great partnership with Bloomington who share the same ethos”. www.warrs.com.

The AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series adds a fourth class of racing to the Red Bull Indianapolis GP weekend, as it joins the three world championship classes – MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 – competing on the 16-turn, 2.591-mile circuit that combines part of the famed IMS oval with an infield section.
