250/ 450- Jordan Bailey
Jordan Bailey’s season aboard the Kawasaki KX250f has been a pretty good run so far. Bailey was on the gas during his last trip to Mammoth Mountain sealing fifth place finishes in 250 B and in 250 B/C Open before making the journey back east to race Loretta Lynn’s. Bailey was on the gas in Tennessee nearly scoring a podium with fourth overall in 250 B! Bailey has been an elite amateur rider for some time now and after recent performances down in Florida in the Gold Cup Series he’s sure to keep beating down doors in the seasons to come.
Two Stroke- Harrison West
Lebanon, Tennessee’s Harrison West is on a roll right now and won’t be easily stopped. Fighting for his pro card so that he can participate in his lifelong dream of competing in the AMA Pro Outdoor Motocross Nationals, West is willing to do whatever it takes to make it to the next level. After putting in several great years in a row at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch including clicking off top fifteen overall results, it’s nice to see some of the hard work paying off. Racking up wins and strong finishes at Pro-Am’s nationwide, West has clicked it into gear and he is reaping the benefits for all of the hard working seed that he has sewn. Expect Harrison to continue to kick the door down every chance he gets as he battles his way to the top of the amateur scene and straight into the pro ranks.
85cc- Lance Kobusch
Lance Kobusch has experienced a great deal of success so far in his career and 2015 was no different. The personality filled shredder is taking over the 85 scene…step it up boys! The Monster Energy Kawasaki backed #99 machine got to work with a big Supermini 12-16 win in Daytona at the Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross. A third place overall in the 85 (12-14) class at Freestone kept the ball rolling and eventually turned into two more titles later in the week stealing first place overall in the 85 (9-13) and Mini Sr. 1 (12-13) divisions. Kobusch was impressive at the Ranch as well, ripping his way to second place overall in Supermini 1 (12-15). Lance decided the win streak shouldn’t end yet, so he made his way out to the Baja Brawl picking up two more huge Supermini 1 and 2 championships. As if that wasn’t enough he stole a championship in the Grass Roots MX Championship and followed it up with a huge win on television at the Monster Energy Cup…yet another clean sweep. Lance…keep killing it!
Women- Brooke Whipple
Brooke Whipple is on the move this year, laying down some of the fastest lap times out of the rest of her fellow WMX cohorts at various events this year. Brooke started 2015 with a big podium finish at the Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross event. Brooke’s third place overall in the Women Amateur (12+) was great momentum for what was to come in the future. Most recently, Brooke took the lucky #13 machine to the AMP Pro-Am Dodge California Championship where she worked the competition earning herself an AMA #1 plate for her efforts in the Women’s 14 plus division.
