Stewart Aitken-Cade has been running the US Grand Prix Racer's Union (USGPRU) since 2002 when the series started.  Initially just a 125GP series, the USGPRU added a 250GP class when the AMA dropped it in 2004.  In 2008, they added a youth-only class, the Moriwaki MD250H Powered by HONDA, featuring a $110k purse.  The USGPRU is open to racers from all skill levels and is particularly focused on helping the up-and-coming racers to develop their race craft prior to taking the leap into the AMA pro ranks or international competition.  Racers such as Yamaha's Josh Herrin, Garrett Carter, PJ Jacobsen, and Red Bull Rookie Cup racer Benny Solis have all spent time learning to carve corners faster with the USGPRU.  Stewart started racing 125s in 1995 and was the 2001 F-USA 125GP National Champion.  He is an active duty member of the US Air Force, currently assigned in Northern Virginia.
