Vance & Hines and Hayden Gillim to Enter 2021 Mission King of the Baggers Series

The Vance & Hines Racing Team will return to the road courses for the three-round 2021 Mission King of the Baggers Series, leveraging the staff at the company’s new Racing Development Center (RDC) to build this year’s entry. Fielding one of the highest performance Harley-Davidson touring bikes ever assembled, the team is building off of their successful podium finish in the inaugural King of the Baggers race at Laguna Seca in 2020.

The Vance & Hines entry is a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide, one of the most popular motorcycles sold today. It features a 131-cubic-inch v-twin motor, managed by a Vance & Hines Fuelpak FP3 custom tuned map. Intake is through a Vance & Hines VO2 Cage Fighter and exhaust is a Vance & Hines Stainless Hi-Output 2-into 1 designed for the Harley-Davidson 131 motor.

The bagger rocketship will be piloted once again by Hayden Gillim, who's got racing credentials in MotoAmerica, MotoGP, WERA and American Flat Track and has wins or championships in almost every class he's ever raced. Gillim has a winning pedigree, too. He's a cousin of Nicky, Roger and Tommy Hayden and hails from racing hotspot, Owensboro, Kentucky.

"America's favorite motorcycle, great performance products and a top notch rider, racing doesn't get better than that!" said company President Mike Kennedy. "Vance & Hines was born at a race track, so it's natural that we'd be in the series demonstrating the talent we have at our RDC and the great performance products we create.”

The MotoAmerica’s Mission Foods King of the Baggers kicks off with a weekend event at Road Atlanta, April 30 through May 2, followed by events at Road America in Wisconsin in June and Laguna Seca in California in July.
