The KLR Group team works on the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series machines of Kyle Wyman's #33 and Michael Beck's #60 (with Michael Barnes' #34 sitting in the background) during the 5th Annual Red Bull Indianapolis MotoGP Weekend on Friday, August 17, 2012 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Wyman scored a 1-2 over the weekend on the KLR Group/Spyke's H-D/Vesrah/GK Motorsports-backed mount, while Beck took home finishes of 7-20 on the Parts Unlimited/Kyle Wyman Racing/Spyke's/Cortech-backed XR1200. Barnes ended the weekend with finishes of 4-5 on his like-sponsored mount to Wyman's.
AMA Pro Road Racing announced over the weekend the extension of the series through the 2014 season as an addition to the AMA Superbike, Daytona SportBike and SuperSport Series classes with V&H owner Terry Vance noting that the series will carry the rebranded name of the AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series beginning with the first round at Daytona in the 2013 season.
