"I would go with my Dad to Pro Flat Track Races and I would watch the Pro Flat Tracker's train at our farm."

"My Dad was a AMA Pro Flat Track Racer and my uncle Raun Wood was also a AMA Pro Flat Track Racer. My Dad also built a Pro flat Track Team of his own and sponsored several riders."

I started racing Flat Track at 4 years old. My first race was at Daytona Beach Flat Track. I went on to racing many different Flat Tracks and half mile flat tracks and when I was five years old I was honored to receive the AMA Youth Rider of the Year award

"My Mom and Dad have always been very supportive of my racing. My Dad maintains all of the racing and all my racing motorcycles along with getting me to all of my race events."

I love training and racing Rich Longs Honda CRF250 framer Flattrack bike. It is very aggressive which makes it more of a challenge to ride

"My Mom helps me with my workout program and maintaining a healthy diet."

At 8 years old I started my first road racing with NJMiniGP. It was really fun and I loved the fact that I got a lot of track time because in Flat Track you only get a couple of short laps on the track. I continued to also race Flat Track and won many national titles and awards

"My Dad owns a Motorcycle Dealership and my Mom is a Secretary, I don't have any brothers or sisters."

"I grew up racing a lot of Flat Track; when I first tried Road Racing, I fell in love with the amount of track time and the complexity of the race courses. I want to eventually make it to MotoGP."

I have been racing and training on a Honda NSF 250 for 2 years. The Moto 3 class in our country is not a popular class ,so I enter the Twin 650 class also, which has more bikes and experienced riders that has taught me a lot

"When I was 7 years old there was a Flat Track ½ mile cushion, and my 2 buddies and I were three wide sideways through the corners battling it out for the win. I eventually took the win but we all had a lot of fun. I think of that as my best ever race."

"My best race of 2018 was at Virginia International Speedway, I was in fourth position where I was reeling in the leader when I triple drafted them into turn one and pulled away with the win."

"2018 was a good year and I learned new limits of the bike in the rain. For 2019 I hope to finish top 5 in the points standings at the end of the Red Bull Rookies Cup season."

"The corners that are the most exciting are fast long uphill corners and the speed at which I race gives me the most satisfaction. In my free time I like to ride motocross and mountain biking. My favourite subject in school is math because I like working with numbers. My Racing Hero is Nicky Hayden."
