Kennesaw, Georgia, (August 4, 2010) – Team Zyvax is looking forward to the WERA Cycle Jam 4 Hour endurance race at VIR, near Danville, VA this weekend. The entire team is excited to endure the racing against each other and the competition! With the drama of a shortened race and a leveled playing field, it’s anyone’s game!
The flowing VIR track plays to the strengths of both Team Zyvax race machines. Chris Clark and returning guest rider Jason Disalvo’s Team Zyvax / Graves Motorsports prepped Yamaha R1 can really stretch it’s powerful legs on VIR’s long front straight but Clinton Seller and Dane Westby’s Team Zyvax / Graves Motorsports supported Yamaha R6 will be lightning quick through the track’s technical sections. The win will come down to whichever team has the fastest, most consistent laps and the fastest, most precise pit stops.
The Cycle Jam weekend’s packed racing schedule leaves less time for the endurance riders to battle, putting more pressure on the Team Zyvax riders to achieve and maintain the lead. Fewer race hours also means less time to fix any issues that may arise during the race. Team Zyvax owner JB Layman expects top results from his riders and crew but he knows it’s going to be a dog fight ’til the end. “With the variations in this track and past rider results, there are no bets on which bike will take the victory,” stated Layman, “We’re expecting to see some new, talented teams this round which will make things all the more interesting.”
Team Zyvax would like to thank Jason Disalvo for stepping in to ride for Ben Bostrom at the WERA Cycle Jam weekend. The team looks forward to Ben’s return once he recovers from a thumb injury.
