TROY MILLER #271

HUSQVARNA FC450/ HONDA 500

Randy LINGO


RANDY LINGO #720 

YAMAHA 450FX

AWRCS – XC-1C 

Randy is such a hard worker that sometimes he must put his passion for riding on the back burner. When Randy gets off work and hits the track though, there is a smile on his face from cheek to cheek. This is Randy’s first year of trying to complete a whole series and we are sure he will do great. Rider #720 has a passion for speeding through the woods, so look out next time you see him coming through!

BRENT SWANSON #56

HUSQVARNA FC 450 /TEXTRON OFFROAD (ARCTIC CAT) SPORT 700 

AWRCS – XC – SENIOR B

AWRCS UTV LITE 800

Brent Swanson should be the man of the hour for taking on the challenge of racing both a UTV, and a bike. Brent is the driver behind the second Schulz Buggy on the track and for his first time ever racing UTV’s he is killing it! Brent was a little nervous going into his first UTV race as he strapped on his NASCAR Helmet, but after his 2 nd place victory he felt much better. Brent is ready to hammer the track now with his TEXTRON 700 on Saturday, then again on his Husqvarna on Sunday. Check out racer #56 as he whips around the track.

DONOVAN SANTE #223

SUZUKI RM 85 / 125 

PAMX SUPERMINI/SCHOOL BOY/ 125B/C

Donovan’s gear is bright, but his career is going to be even brighter. Donovan can barely touch the ground on a 125, yet he races the big guys like it’s a walk in the park. Racer #223 is worth going to see. He has his eyes set on the prize and with the amount of seat time this kid puts in, it will not be long before people are asking him for autographs. Donovan might be young, but he takes no prisoners when that gate drops.

hunter shriner



HUNTER SHRINER #20

HUSQVARNA FC 250

PAMX – 250B

Hunter does not play games. He is straight to the point – he wants to win and will work hard to get there. Hunter is always trying to perfect his riding style and asks questions the second something does not feel right. Hunter proves that he is dedicated, driven, and detail oriented. When it comes to his riding career – he makes sure he is ready so when the gate drops he can focus on winning. Hunter came out of the gate strong this year on a new bike. The bike was a big switch for him, but he still pulled out 4th on the first race. We love watching Hunter climb his way to the top, and we are sure his dedication will get him there.

PAMX RD1: 4th


rick


RICK TRUNZO #75

HUSQVARNA FC450 ROCKSTAR EDITION

PAMX +40

Rick is the rider that knows everything. Most of the time, Rick is the one educating us. He has been in the racing world for so long that he seems to know everybody and everything. He can tell you about the new releases before the dealers even know, he can tell you the track conditions before they are posted, and he can tell you all about the new accessories before they are even released. Off the track it is safe to say Rick is the information King, but on the track – it is all about the race. Rick is driven to win and see how far he can move forward through the race. While Rick rides the latest and greatest, it is his dedication to the sport that keeps him climbing up the point scale.

DOUG PALMER #79

HONDA CRF250R

NECXC SENIOR 45+

Doug is one of our oldest riders, but man is he young at heart. Doug is the guy under the tent cracking jokes, helping young riders learn old tricks, and polishing the chrome on his bike before he gets it all muddy. Doug is a diehard fan of dirt bikes and the entire powersports industry. When Doug isn’t racing, its safe to say you can find him in the parts department at Schulz checking out new parts for his bike. Look out for #79 this year, he will absolutely show you the fun in the sport.

DALTON SHERASKEY #88

HUSQVARNA TC85/FC250

NECXC - YOUTH 

Dalton Sheraskey is the type of person that doesn't say much. Off the track, he has a quiet personality. But on the track, he's totally different. When that flag drops, he charges and gives it everything he has. A true competitive side shines bright and he got noticeably more aggressive at each round. Dalton will surely be a title contender in 2018.

I believe I have the best shot at winning and I will continue to make a name for myself in this world for racing." Its not everyday you come across a team member as motivated as rider #112. Colton will be successful in everything he does in life simply because when he puts his mind to it, he does it. Colton Ward was a new addition to the team this year and he has already become a great asset to the team.

YAMAHA YFZ 450R 

Zack is the best type of rider - he is humble about his achievements, but has fire in his eyes. Last year was his first time ever racing ATV's and he did not hold back. The second that flag dropped, Zack was on a conquest to rack up his winnings. He never let himself sink below 10th all season, and found himself on the podium more than a time or two.

AWRCS - YOUTH BIKE

HUSQVARNA TC85 

Kohl maintained good composure and charged through the entire 2017 season. His will to win came to surface each round. Kohl would not take no for an answer in 2017 , winning the overall NECXC championship. This year Kohl made the jump to the AWRCS series and his will to win already put him on the podium in the first round. Rider 190 is definitely something to see!

AWRCS - UTV AMATEUR STOCK 801CC - 1000CC 

AWRCS - XC - SUPER SENIOR  

ARCTIC CAT SPORT 700 

HUSQVARNA TE 300  

Darryl should be renamed "Father Time" because this racer has to have more than 24 hours in his day. Darryl juggles three businesses, family life, and his passion for power sports everyday of the week. When Darryl is not working, its safe to say he is either in his buggy, or on his bike. While Darryl has always been a bike guy he made his debut in UTV racing last year and took home 1st place overall in the 700cc class. Like any great power sport enthusiast would, he stepped it up this year. Darryl made his appearance this year with his 700cc Arctic Cat Sport, however he chose to race in the 801cc-1000cc class. If that was not enough, after his UTV race is done, Darryl cools off then gets ready to hit the track again on his TE 300. Darryl shows the team that with enough hard work, anything is possible.
