Vance & Hines Motorsports, a prominent force in the motorcycle racing world, is set to defend its MotoAmerica Mission King Of The Baggers Championship with the 2023 titleholder, Hayden Gillim. Gillim will spearhead a formidable two-rider team under the RevZilla/Mission/Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson banner, accompanied by the emerging talent, Rocco Landers.

Fresh from a stellar season, highlighted by clinching the Mission King Of The Baggers Championship on the Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Road Glide, Hayden Gillim is gearing up for another exciting year. Securing three victories and 10 podium finishes in 14 races, including a remarkable streak of eight consecutive podiums to close out the season in New Jersey, Gillim expressed his eagerness to defend the championship: "I’m a family man, and the Vance & Hines team is really like a big family. I can’t wait to get started, and Daytona can’t get here soon enough.”

In an intriguing development for the 2024 season, Gillim is set to join forces with Rocco Landers at Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson. Landers, a rising star, will make his Mission King Of The Baggers debut at Daytona International Speedway in March. Boasting an impressive track record, with victories across MotoAmerica Junior Cup, Twins Cup, and Supersport classes, Landers expressed his excitement for the upcoming season: "I’ve never had an opportunity like this, and I plan on making the most of it. Let’s go racing.”

Terry Vance, owner of Vance & Hines Motorsport, shared his enthusiasm for the team's composition: “I’m really happy with the team we’ve put together for the 2024 season. Hayden (Gillim) had a tremendous year and brought us our first King Of The Baggers title, and we know he will be at the front again this year. Rocco (Landers) brings a lot of youth to the team, and I think he will be a quick study and will surprise people with his speed on the Bagger.”

As the anticipation builds for the upcoming season, the Vance & Hines Motorsports team is poised for success, combining experience and youthful vigor. Additionally, the team looks forward to making an impact not only on the race track but also in events like those held in Ontario.
