About Kevin - This legend of motocross has quite an impressive list of accomplishments. Kevin started racing in Jacksonville, Florida in 1972. His racing roots run throughout the Nashville area racing with the Volunteer Motocross club at local tracks like Andrew Jackson Raceway and Sun Valley MX.
His amateur career results are exceptional. A ten-time Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National Champion Kevin won his first championship in 1983 and his last championship in 2013. The 30 years between his first and last is the current record. He was the 2003 AMA Sports Vet/Senior Rider of the Year in 2003. Kevin is also one of a very choice few racers that have a street named after him at the Loretta Lynn’s race track.
In addition to his amateur racing career, he raced professionally in 1984, 1985, and 1986 earning national number 43 in 1984 and 31 in 1985. In 1986 he rode 2 nationals before returning to college full time to pursue an aerospace degree.
After his racing career, he put his degree to good use working on the Space Shuttle at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and is now working for American Suzuki as an Engineering Manager in the Legal Division.
