Andrew Evanyke: 2012 ATV Extreme Dirt Track Production A champ
January 31, 2013
Andrew Evanyke of Warwick, N.Y., earned the national No. 1 plate in the Production A class of the 2012 AMA ATV Extreme Dirt Track Championship Series.
This 18-year-old national champion won the title even though he missed two rounds of the series and faced stiff competition from everyone in the field.
“They are all a challenge,” Evanyke says. “But what it came down to at the last round was point standings. And because of that, the competition was Mark Blystone, Jason Fisher and TC Gordy.”
Evanyke says he was very pleased with the performance of his Honda TRX450R during the 2012 season, and “between the Roberts Racing components, PEP suspension and the Turtle Racing motor, I could not ask for a better bike to be on.”
Evanyke likes the family atmosphere of the AMA ATV Extreme Dirt Track National Championship Series and hopes to become a top contender in the Pro and Pro-Am classes. When he’s not racing he rides pit bikes, snowboards, fishes, bowls and plays basketball.
His sponsors are ESJ Graphics, Roberts Racing, Rath Racing, CV4, Showoff Industries and TRE. He also wants to give “a huge thanks to Lenny from TSI competition engines.
“I really can’t thank my father, Brian Demarmels, Eric Jennings, and Chuck Zovistoski enough,” he adds. “Without them this would not be possible. Also, a special thanks to the Ace family for always being there for me.”
