Blake Young, AMA Pro National Guard Superbike Racer – Yoshimura Suzuki
Blake starts off the 2012 season in second place after just two races. His win on Sunday demonstrates that this will once again be a season where Blake is in the hunt for the AMA Pro National Guard Superbike Championship. In 2011 Young came very close to winning the championship and secured more victories during the season than the champion did. Recently at the Homestead-Miami Speedway test in Florida he posted the fourth quickest time.
Joey Pascarella, AMA GoPro Daytona Sportbike Racer – Project One Atlanta Yamaha
The 19 year-old Pascarella kicked off the 2012 season in the right way by winning the 71st Daytona 200. He led 41 laps of the 57-lap race and just barely beat the 2011 defending champion, Jason DiSalvo. Pascarella is the second youngest rider to win the Daytona 200 and the youngest to win it at Daytona International Speedway. Back in 2010 he won the AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com Supersport West Championship.

“Le Cobra” first contested the 125cc and 250cc Supercross and Motocross championships in Europe. After he made the voyage to the U.S. in 1996 he enjoyed a very successful career and climbed all the way up to a Factory Yamaha rider with multiple race wins and championships. Several years after retirement he still can be found at several races a year and remains a fan favorite for many. He’s made his home in Southern California and is married with children.
Matt Lemoine, 250 Lites East Supercross, HRT Racing
Currently Matt sits tenth in the Supercross Lites East points championship. His best results this year have been a seventh in Indianapolis and ninth in Toronto. Prior to turning pro in 2007 Matt won Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National Championship titles in 2004 and 2006. In the past he’s ridden for factory support teams and last year he raced as a true privateer out of his van. This year he’s back in a semi with the start up team HRT Racing.
