Tevin Tapia is a privateer born in Washington State, but now resides out of Menifee, California. He had a good amateur career, then turned pro and raced the whole 2010 series in the 250 Class aboard a KTM. In the Lites East Supercross series, Tapia qualified for three main events with his best finish being a tenth in the last round. Outdoors he logged his best finish at Washougal with a fifteenth in the second moto and earned national number 70 for the 2011 season. Tomorrow, Tapia is flying to Germany to race supercross, then he plans to head back to SoCal to start training for the East Coast Lites Series. We caught up with him while he was packing for his trip abroad.
