2012 Team PhotoWith the 2013 ATV Motocross Season fast approaching, the Media Allstars are putting the finishing touches on their tenth team roster since forming back in 2004. While the last nine seasons have yielded pretty amazing results (34 National Championships, 171 Overall Wins, 400 Moto Wins, 1042 Podium Finishes, 1080 Top-Five Finishes), the team is confident that 2013 will be the best season yet. “I know we say this every year, but we’re really excited about our roster, and ecstatic about the sponsors we’ve secured this year.” Returning to the roster, and representing the team at the 2013 ATV MX Nationals will be Ohio’s #83 Jake McGraw (Pro-Am, and A-Classes), Illinois native #33 Calen McGinty (A Class), Ohio’s #71 Dan Hoisington (A-Class), Canadian #86 Kaitlyn Bushey (Women’s Class), Pennsylvania’s #7 Josh & #9 Matthew Holley (70 & 90cc Classes), #671 Dale & #636 Mark Batson (Vet Classes), and at the helm of the team is rider support coordinator, and racer #419 Chase Cunningham (Vet & A Classes). A two-rider Satellite Team will once again contest the TQRA Series consisting of Open-A & Schoolboy Class Champion/ TQRA “Rider Of The Year” #58 Pake Shinn, and #808 Austin Wilson.
The team has added five riders to this year’s roster who they know will pay dividends both on, and off of the track: Chance Beverley, Michael Perkins, Graham Gardner, Ray Hoisington, and Brad Neitzel. Outside of the pre-requisite speed, and consistency, the new additions each displayed something special during the off-season in order to secure a spot on the roster.
