250/450- Joey Crown
Metamora, Michigan’s Joey Crown has been flying on his Dunlop treaded Kawasaki machines. Crown’s top five consistency has helped maintain his momentum making him capable of striking for wins at any time. Claiming a hard earned fifth overall at the Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross in the 250 B class was just the success needed to propel Joey to the front of the class. At the James Stewart Freestone Spring Championship Crown was crowned the 250 B Limited victor. Always a racer to step up to the gate when it counts, Crown slaughtered the Loretta Lynn’s track en route to earning himself a coveted number one plate at the biggest showcase in the amateur motocross industry marking himself in the history books as the 2015 Loretta Lynn 250 B Limited champion
Two-Stroke- Sam Redman
Tennessee local Sam Redman made the home state proud at Loretta Lynn’s Dude Ranch in 2015. Sam Redman battled his heart out in the Hurricane Mills heat gripping his way to a tough fought second place overall finish in the 2-stroke 16+ division. Redman took home another top ten in the College (16-24) class with sixth overall capping off a solid year and nice building block for the Redman crew.
Women- Hannah Hodges
Hannah Hodges is a rare breed… She attacks the track unlike many of her competitors, racing the edges and pushing the limits of both her Supermini machines and the track. Training avidly at MTF and racing aboard top notch Monster Energy Kawasaki equipment, Hannah Hodges has quite a future ahead of her. With moves to the big bike in the near future, things are about to get a little bit more interesting in the Women’s ranks. Hannah regularly competed with (and beat) her fellow racers with a power disadvantage so once the gloves come off and it’s a fair fight expect even bigger things out of Miss Hodges. Hannah’s amazing performance at the Monster Energy Cup aboard her Supermini certainly would be a good one to leave off on…so here’s to Hannah and what’s to come of her opportunity and win filled future…CHEERS!
65cc- Matthew Leblanc
Leblanc…Matthew Leblanc! Chances are you’ve heard this name chanted at a 65 podium near you. Leblanc was extremely impressive during the 2015 season heating things up with wins at last years Mini O’s in both Supercross and motocross in the 65 (7-9) Limited divisions proving his versatility early on to potential sponsors. Matt kept spinning for wins, grabbing one as he made his way through Florida at the RCSX at Daytona. Leblanc’s win in the 65 (7-11) Open class against such a broad range of riders showed again he is and will remain a threat in his respective classes this year as he continues to move through the amateur ranks. As if his long list of wins in 2015 so far wasn’t long enough, he also took home some serious hardware at Loretta Lynn’s stealing himself another 65 (7-11) title only this time at the big dance in Tennessee!
