Advance, North Carolina (May 14, 2013) - Motorcycle industry celebrities and insiders from the motorcycle world give their uncut opinions and stories.
Tyler Bowers, Arenacross Champion- Team Babbitt's Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki
Bowers is a three-time Arenacross Champion and his season couldn't have gone much better. Even with a broken collarbone mid-season he managed to win a majority of the Arenacross races and pull off his third consecutive title. After the season was over he got a call from Mitch Payton to fill in on the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki squad where he won the final round in Las Vegas, Nevada. He's still under contract with Babbitt's and plans to return to Arenacross next season.
Dave Castillo, Professional Stunt Man/Retired Professional Motocross/Supercross Racer
As a founding member of Asterisk, many newcomers to motocross recognize his name for being a leader on the business side of motocross. Dave was actually a very fast racer and could be found making the mains in Supercross in the 1990's and even hit a few in the early 2000's. Today he's still involved over at Asterisk and also works on movies as a professional stunt man. His work includes the movies "The Dark Knight Rises", "Iron Man", and more.
Brian Weston, Managing Director, Arai Helmet, Inc. (North & South America)
Weston started with Arai in late 1984, early 1985 as a grunt fixing helmets. He visited Arai Japan for the first time in early 1986 and made his first Arai helmet shell (which he still has). Over the past two decades his role at Arai grew to cover almost every role required from race, retail and dealer service & support, advertising & promotion, editorial support, technical training and even taking and filling parts and accessories orders. Brian travels to the factory on average twice a year to stay up on new technology and Arai philosophy. These days he focuses on the introduction of new models and technical training for both dealers and consumers. From time to time he still finds myself fixing helmets.
Roger Hayden, AMA Pro SuperBike Racer - Jordan National Guard Team
After the first two AMA Pro SuperBike races in Daytona, Roger finds himself in 12th overall with an 18th and 4th place finish in the two races. Fans expect to see him and his Jordan National Guard SuperBike on the podium again this season. In 2012 he wrapped up the season in a very respectable 3rd overall with 8 podiums and a lone victory at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Roger was the 2007 AMA SuperSport Champion and won the 1998 AMA Horizon Award for Dirt Track.
Brandon Lee Robinson, AMA Pro Flat Track Racer - TJ Burnett Farms/USC Kawasaki/Hart Racing
Robinson currently leads the AMA Pro Racing's Flat Track GNC Combined Series. He is in first place in the GNC Expert Singles class and 6th place in the Expert Twins class. In 2012 he finished 11th overall in the combined standings, his best finish was 2nd at Indy. In 2008 he was the Grand National Pro Expert Twins Champion.
