Jeff Gibson, Arenacross – Babbitt’s Power Store/Tuf Racing
Last year Gibby announced his retirement from fulltime Arenacross racing after finishing second in the series and only three points behind the winner, Tyler Bowers. It was a surprise to many when he lined up again this year. This past weekend in Milwaukee he raced to a third overall on Friday and fourth overall on Saturday to prove he still has what it takes to be fast in Arenacross.
Aubry Baldwin, Owner & Designer | Chix Gear Apparel & Graphics
Aubry was a young girl the first time she remembers going to the races with her family. Living in a small town in Iowa, it was nearly impossible to not know about a Saturday night figure 8, go-cart, motocross, drag, or circle track race. But it was only after she met her husband and they started going to races together, that she realized that, as a fan, he had plenty of apparel options, but she couldn’t find anything she liked to show her support. In October of 2011, she decided to start her own apparel company called Chix Gear, LLC to resolve that problem. The company has expanded to offer vinyl graphics in addition to women’s apparel.
Justin Hill, 250SX West Coast – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki
Although getting a main event win has eluded him so far, Justin seems to be riding much more confident and aggressive than last year. Last Saturday he finished fourth at the third and final stop in Anaheim and now sits fifth in points. Last year was his rookie season where he scored two top-five finishes in Dallas and Indianapolis and was a solid top ten rider. In Toronto (2013) he was landed on and sat the remainder of the Supercross season out. He returned for the opening round in Hangtown to race the Outdoors season with nine top-ten finishes.
Ivan Ramirez, KTM OffRoad Rider – Factory KTM
A few weeks ago Ramirez celebrated his first AMA National Hare & Hound victory and dedicated the win to his late teammate, Kurt Caselli. The race was held in Lucerne Valley, California and Ramirez clearly brought his A game. He started the race with a one-minute lead and stretched it out to a three-minute lead by the time he crossed the finish line. Ramirez has become known thanks to his victories and participations in races throughout central Mexico and United States, but his most popular victories are with the SCORE Baja 500 of 2007, SCORE Baja 1000 of 2008, and of his SCORE International Class 21 category Championship in 2007. He also has a gold medal from the 2010 ISDE and a WORCS Championship.
