Tommy Hahn, Supercross Racer - MotoConcepts
Tommy finished eighth in the 2010 Supercross standings. This year he is on the MotoConcepts team for the first year and so far he's had a mixed bag of results. Last weekend in Phoenix he finished 16th. The 450 class is super competitive this year and no doubt Tommy will find the speed it takes to run inside the top ten where he belongs.
Jeff Gibson, Arenacross Champion - Tuf Racing
In 2009 Tuf Racing's Jeff Gibson of Blacklick, Ohio won the Arenacross Championship. Last year he came into the opening round still recovering from an injury. Also last year they changed the Arenacross series to a 450 format. Jeff started out on a 250F and even though he eventually went to a 450, he never found his speed that won him the number one plate the year before. This year he is fully healed up and more prepared on the 450. It shows too, as he's won the two first rounds.
