CONNER BLEVINS 2013 RACE SEASON REVIEW

Conner Blevins has had a busy 2013, racing in his first full season in the AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport East Championship and in the entire 10-event CMRA Championship Series, as well as working at his full-time job and bicycling regularly.

Conner’s finishes as a true privateer in the AMA Pro SuperSport Series are his best to date. As the only rider in the SuperSport class on a Kawasaki, Conner had four top-ten finishes with a sixth place in race two at Road America and seventh and eighth place finishes at Mid-Ohio. In the ten races that made up the East Championship, 18-year-old Blevins finished a more-than-respectable sixth place overall.

In the ultra-competitive CMRA regional race series, Conner finished as the #2 points-earning rider in the 2013 championship, with multiple wins and podium finishes in 600cc and 750cc classes on his Kawasaki ZX-6R. His impressive 2013 record includes the #2 plate, class championships in C Superstock and C Superbike, 17 wins, 13 second places and 8 third place finishes, and, just for fun, as a team rider on the front-running Lone Star Track Days endurance team that finished fourth overall for the season.

"I have had a great 2013 season,” said Conner. “Being able to run the whole East championship really helped move me forward as a rider, and racing with the CMRA has kept me sharp in between the AMA races. I’m really confident as I get ready for 2014, and the season can’t start soon enough. I’ve got to thank my dad Robert and my whole family, along with all of the sponsors that helped us out this year.”

For the 2013 season, Conner has been proud to be sponsored by LeoVince USA, Ajax Kawasaki, HT Moto, Lone Star Track Days, Dunlop Tires, Moto Liberty, Arai Helmets, Ohlins Suspension and Excel Racing.
