  JOSH UPPERMAN #20
AMA PRO

Louisville, OH Josh is joining Root River Racing in 2015. He has had a promising career and is looking for a fresh start to join a great program that he feels can definitely get him back on the podium. At 29, he has plenty of years to grab that lustrous AMA Pro Championship. Uppie, as he is liked to be called, in 2011 came up just short and finished 2nd.

  DYLAN TREMELLEN #940
PRO AM & OPEN A

Lancaster, PA
Dylan at the age of 20 is one of the nicest and most mature kids we have ever met. That maturity level definitely shows out on the race track. Winning his 5th national title in 2014, he is looking to step it up and move into the Pro Am class. The leap from an A class to Pro Am is a daunting task, but Dylan is up for the challenge. At home, Dylan has a good job that for the next year he is taking off to train relentlessly for Pro AM.

  SAM ROWE #38
PRO AM & OPEN A
Menasha, WI
“Factory” Sam as we all call him, is a natural. Just graduating High School, his plans are to train to eventually make it to the Pro ranks of this tough sport. As much as he would like to jump straight into Pro from his 7th & 8th national title, he knows that biding his time and moving thru the Pro Am class is the best plan. This off season he plans on rotating around training with a couple of the Pros that have welcomed him to train with them.

  BUBBA HICKS #33
450A & OPEN A
Montezuma, IA
Bubba is the team’s college boy. This December he will graduate from Iowa State with a degree in business. With education being such a strong part about the team, Bubba has done very well at nationals with the limited time he was able to train and ride while in college. He finished this year in 4th in both Open A and Production A. He told us in 2015 all he was going to do is train & win.

  HAEDYN MICKELSON #135
PRODUCTION A & 450 A

Eyota, MN
Here is the one to watch in 2015. Last year in the off season, Haedyn home schooled himself so he could train all winter for his first year in the B classes. We saw incredible improvements over the already very talented rider. In his very first moto of the year, Haedyn had a freak accident and severely broke his leg. Missing 2 rounds and six weeks, you would have thought he was done for the year. Haedyn came back with a vengance and took 2nd in 450 B & 3rd in Open B

  ALEX GILLETE #88
PRODUCTION B & OPEN B & COLLEGE 16-25

Onalaska, MN
Alex had a good, but tough year. After a practice accident and a severely sprained wrist with 6 rounds to go, he battled the pain of hanging on to the quad. Alex is a fighter and he never gave up. He was still able to pull two 1st place finishes out of his season. Finishing the year out in 3rd in 450 B and 7th in Production B.

  TYLER MACK #33
PRODUCTION B & 450 B

New Ulm, MN
New comer to the team, we have been sponsoring Tyler since his local District 23 days years ago. At nationals, he has come up through the youth ranks and is now headed onto the big quads. Tyler finished out his youth career with a 2nd in Schoolboy Sr & 4th in Schoolboy Jr Open. Being from Minnesota riding outdoors is limited so to help with his training he plays Basketball & Football for his high school.

  NOAH MICKELSON #100
SCHOOLBOY JR OPEN & SCHOOLBOY SR

Eyota, MN
If we had to use one word to describe Noah it would have to be FEARLESS. He will hit jumps that make even the Pros in our sport cringe. This probably is his biggest advantage over the field of riders he competes against. He drives harder into corners, takes more calculated risks on jumps and very rarely looses a holeshot in effort to win a race. It all came together and paid off for Noah this year with his first ever national championship in Supermini & 2nd in Schoolboy Jr Open.

  OWEN SUBJEK #8
90 JR OPEN & 90 JR SHIFTER

La Crosse, WI
New Comer to the sport, Owen has begun living out his early dreams of being by dad’s side at nationals and racing quads. Tony, Owens dad, is one of the team’s full time mechanics and has given into our pressure of sponsoring his quiet, smart and ambitious son. With a team full of very talented riders wanting and willing to help, he is sure to do well in 2015.
