Josh Herrin, Daytona Sportbike - Graves Yamaha
Herrin had another amazing season racing for Graves Yamaha in the Daytona Sportbike class where he finished third overall. During the 2010 season he celebrated five victories and eleven podiums. In 2009 Herrin finished second overall in the Daytona class. Both race series came down to the wire. He is already signed to race again for the Graves Yamaha team and perhaps 2011 will be the one where Josh wins the championship. He recently signed with his new shoe sponsor DC Shoes, so things are starting off on the right foot.
Austin Dehaven, AMA Supersport - Privateer
In 2010 Austin rode as a privateer with long time AMA crew chief Robert Ward and his dad Eric as the entire crew. In the nine races he competed in he took seven top five finishes and three podiums (a 5th, three 4ths, one 3rd, and two 2nds). In 2008 Austin raced in the U.S. AMA Red Bull Rookies Cup and finished 6th overall. In 2009 he raced in the WERA Series since he was only 15 and too young to start racing in the AMA Series. Austin is a student and protégé of Keith Code and the California Superbike School. For 2011 the plans are still in the works, but Austin just traveled to Italy a few weeks back to test with the Official Yamaha Factory Junior European Superstock 600 team, Team Trasimeno.
Ricky Parker, 2009 AMA West Supersport Champion - Privateer
The 2009 AMA West Supersport Champion is putting together the plans to come back to race Daytona Sportbike in 2011. Parker had a brief stint in Europe this past year that was plagued with mechanical issues and then financial issues. He was supposed to race the entire Italian Championship. Now Parker is back in the states and has set his sights on winning another U.S. Championship. He is actively racing, putting together sponsor deals and getting back into shape for the 2011 AMA season.
Kurt Caselli, WORCS Champion - FMF/KTM
With a 6 point lead over Ricky Dietrich, FMF KTM's Kurt Caselli went into the final round of the WORCS series at Mesquite MX Park confident and ready. He only needed to finish on the podium to clinch the title. Many thought he would ride cautiously and didnt know if his results in the last round would reflect that. Instead he walked away with the win and the number one plate. He took the lead on lap 11 and finished over 30 seconds ahead of the second place rider, his teammate Mike Brown. This is his 2nd Championship in the WORCS series.
