Advance, North Carolina (October 1, 2013) - Motorcycle industry celebrities and insiders from the motorcycle world give their uncut opinions and stories.
Josh Herrin, 2013 AMA Pro Superbike Champion - Monster Energy Graves Yamaha Herrin won his first AMA Pro Superbike Championship and is making his move to Moto2 in 2014. His 2013 season ended with a 2nd place finish at Laguna Seca topping off a season that included 4 wins and 12 podiums. In 2012 he finished 4th overall in the SuperBike series, prior to that he raced in the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike series and finished 2nd in 2011 and 2009 and 3rd in 2010.
Blake Young, World SuperBike - FIXI Crescent Suzuki Blake Young raced both WSBK races this past weekend at Laguna Seca and came away with a pair of 12th place finishes. Young was filling in on the FIXI Crescent Suzuki for injured rider Leon Camier. Earlier in 2013 Young raced for Attack Performance Kawasaki in two MotoGP rounds at Circuit of the Americas COTA and Indianapolis. At COTA he finished 21st after qualifying 24th and at Indy he qualified 23rd but was unable to races after wrecking the bike.
Allan Karl, Author - FORKS. A Quest for Culture, Cuisine, and Connection. Several years ago, after many changing life events, such as quitting his job at the company he founded, and ending a failed marriage, Allan Karl hopped on his motorcycle and traveled around the world. After three years and riding 62,000 miles on 5 continents, he returned home to California. It was an incredible adventure and, in many ways, a life changing experience--a journey. Since then, he has invested three more years and nearly all he's got into writing and producing a new book about his adventure and the world. It's an over-sized, hardcover, coffee-table quality book with about 270 pages in full color and more than 500 photographs, adventure stories and 40 recipes--all from 35 countries on 5 continents.
Chris Carr, Pro Dirt Track Legend -Seven time Grand National Champion/ World Land Speed Record Setter A few years ago Chris hung up his leathers and retired from Pro AMA Flat Track racing. He started in 1985 and won his first Grand National at the age of 19. He's now the U.S. importer for Golden Tyre and the East Coast Distributor. He just found out he'll return to Bonneville to attempt to set another world land speed record for Bub.
Gary Sutherlin, Pro Offroad Racer - Privateer
Gary was born and raised in Montana and grew up racing motocross before he moved to Phoenix to attend MMI. He ended up meeting Destry Abbot and Ricky Dietrich while he was in Arizona. He worked as Ricky' mechanic in 2006-2007 and tried to qualify for the pro 450 class at Lakewood and Washougal while still wrenching for Ricky at Factory Kawasaki. His speed in offroad racing was evident despite his lack of training and he eventually set his sights on becoming a full time pro himself. Fast forward five years and he's competed in the X Games, won the 2013 AMA West Coast Harescramble series in the Pro Class, he's competitive in the Endurocross series, and got his first win the WORCS series three weeks ago. Gary is a true privateer in every sense of the word, is a single dad, and races for purse money to pay his bills.
