The Kuryakyn Racing for a Wish Team hustled to Road America for the AMA Pro XR1200 Series Round 5, just three days after racing wrapped up in Utah on Memorial Day. The team was ready and confident coming off their best pro finish with a top-five at Miller Motorsports Park. This last weekend was Signorell's second visit to Road America. Although he crashed out of the race his first time there in 2011, the long and fast road racing course is one of his favorites. Being so close to the Harley-Davidson Motor Company's homeland of Milwaukee, the XR1200 series had the treat of putting on a great show for thousands of HD enthusiasts.
The team continues to make strides forward. On Sunday, Signorelli finished the race in sixth after a entertaining scrap for fourth, with a best lap time just 1.4 seconds behind the fastest lap time done by any rider all weekend. The team continues to make significant significant progress throughout the year. Signorelli has had his two career best Pro finishes in the last two races. He and the team are confident and poised to make a strong charge in the points race that will begin at the Indianapolis Grand Prix in two and a half months time.
Earlier in the year, the AMA and Vance&Hines announced a points chase and an increased purse for the XR1200 Series. Starting at the Indy GP, the points for the top ten in the championship standings will have their points reset to zero. This should lead to some spirited competition in a class that demonstrates some of the most entertaining racing. The team invites all fans to make it to the next round at Barber Motorsports Park on June 24th, or tune in on Speed2.com for race coverage.
