From a Why We Ride press release:

The Why We Ride Minimoto USA Championship Series is closing out the 2014 season this weekend at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. Families from across California and beyond will gather at the Buttonwillow facilities October 24-26 for the final round of youth and adult racing, and the Minimoto USA family will celebrate a successful and rewarding year with a luau-themed potluck on Saturday at 5:00pm.

“We are so grateful for all of the support from our title sponsor Why We Ride,” said Stoney Landers, founder of Minimoto USA. “Our mission is to provide a safe place for these kids to learn and race, and we invite adults to race in various classes on different sized machines as well. Like any sports program, we aim to not only develop kids in their racing, but also teach them life lessons about responsibility, dedication, discipline and teamwork.”

Why We Ride Producer/Director Bryan H. Carroll and Producer James Walker agree, “this is a pivotal time for American road racing. With the new MotoAmerica series coming together we have an opportunity to get more Americans interested in racing and motorcycling in general. We are happy to support Minimoto USA because we believe it is imperative that these programs continue to grow here in the states to not only develop racers, but also create lifelong motorcyclists.”

The ninth and final round of the Why We Ride Minimoto USA Championship Series will take place this weekend, October 24-26 at Buttonwillow Raceway. Visit the Minimoto USA website or Facebook page for more information.

A lifelong gearhead who didn't fully immerse himself in motorcycles until his teenage years, Troy's interests have always been in technology, performance, and going fast.

He's also won multiple club races throughout the country, culminating in a Utah Sport Bike Association championship in 2011. He has been invited as a guest instructor for the Yamaha Champions Riding School, and when he's not out riding, he's either wrenching on bikes or watching MotoGP.
