Schoolboy- Chase Sexton
The boy from La Moille really isn’t anything to mess with…Chase Sexton is one bad dude. Now a member of the elite Amsoil Honda crew, Sexton is on the fast track to success and is going to blitz it to the top. Following championships in Texas at both Freestone and Oak Hill in the 250 B class as well as a slew of impressive Schoolboy finishes Chase landed himself a secure spot on the gate at Loretta’s. When push came to shove at the Ranch, Sexton wrestled his way into second place overall in 250 B leaving Tennessee one spot shy of the national championship. Sexton’s debut ride aboard the red machine was recently at the Monster Energy Cup and he seemed to be right at home, pushing Austin Forkner’s comfort zone at times before settling into second place overall in the Amateur All-Stars class in front of eyes across the world.
85cc- Jalek Swoll
It’s almost hard to believe Florida’s Jalek Swoll didn’t top the Dirty 100…if it weren’t for such deep pools of talent that might have been the case. Regardless, Swoll cleaned house in the 85 and Mini Sr. ranks in 2015. Swoll’s pair of wins at the Mini Olympics in Supercross set the tone for what would follow to be a year full of big highlights for the elite Seven amateur athlete. The Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross went just the same for Jalek. Wrapping up big wins in the Mini Sr. 1 (12-13) and Mini Sr. 2 (12-14) classes, Jalek has been absolutely blazing aboard his Husqvarna’s. A big first place overall at the bosses race down in Freestone certainly didn’t hurt to add to his resume, leaving Texas with another Mini Sr. 2 title to his name and a bit more momentum when he gets the ball rolling in 2016.
65cc- Chase Prince
Petersburg, Tennessee’s Chase Prince has been busting through the Dirty 100 ranks as he climbs his way through the talented 65 and 85 ranks. Prince proved with a top five last year at Mini O’s that he could get in the mix. A breakthrough performance at the Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross with a third place overall in the 65 (7-11) Open class put him on the map for real and Prince is now ready to claim his throne! Leaving Loretta Lynn’s with a podium in the 65 (10-11) Limited class and a strong fifth place overall in the (7-11) division, Chase put in his very best effort along the way in his home state. Prince has been busy racking up more wins in the Big Show Series lately, honing his skills for whatever comes his way in 2016!
