HISTORY
Kenny got his motorcycle endorsement in the summer of 2001. 2003 he purchased a brand new Suzuki GSX-R 600 street bike, and watched his first AMA Superbike race that June at the Brainerd International Raceway. Kenny watched the AMA bikes race at BIR in 03' & 04', and traveled to Road America, WI to watch them in 05', 06',07', 08' which further fueled his motorcycling passion & desire to race himself. July 08' Kenny took his 2003 street bike up to BIR, to sample the 3.1 mile racetrack at a trackday hosted by Track Addix. "Try the Track" was two 15min, instructor lead sessions which of the 5 riders "trying the track" Kenny was the only rider that could keep up to the Instructors pace. August of 08' Kenny found a used race bike identical to his for sale at the August CRA race weekend and bought it 2 weeks later.

The CRA Sept race weekend was too late for Kenny to get a race license, so instead attended the Track Addix Trackday and completed the "Track Orientation School" on BIR's new 2.5 mile "Competition Course." May 2009 Kenny completed the CRA "New Rider School" earning his race license & raced all 5 weekends in the 09' season.

2010 CRA race season, he again attended all 5 race weekends and excelled in his 2nd year Novice season, finishing 6th out of 86 Novice racers. The Club advanced Kenny out of the Novice "yellow plate" class, and will be wearing an Expert "white plate" for the 2011 race season.
