In his rider profile on, Mixon writes, "I have been riding motorcycles for 31 years all started at the age of 6. I fell in love with them, and racing became a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. In 2011, I was able to attend California Superbike School at Virginia International Raceway where I completed the first two levels. In 2012 I was able to go back and complete levels 3 and 4.

"In May 2012 I attended my first track day at Black Hawk Farms Raceway in South Beloit, Illinois and feel like it has become a second home to me. I earned my CCS race license in September 2012, and have been competing since. 2013 was my first full year of racing on my 750 GSX-R, and I competed in Rookies Cup GTO, Unlimited Superbike, Unlimited Grand Prix, Heavyweight SuperSport and Heavyweight Superbike. In 2014 I (raced)... my 1000 GSX-R....doing the Unlimited Superbike and Unlimited Grand Prix.

"I am a machinist at Cobham Life Support in Davenport, Iowa and I am also in my 6th year of teaching MSF classes at Clinton, Scott, and Muscatine Community Colleges."

Mixon adds that his goal is "To be the overall champion in Unlimited Superbike or Unlimited GP" in his CCS region.
