Coming off a super successful 2016 season, flat track racer Cory Texter is back racing under is own banner for the 2017 season. He comes from a long linage of motorcycle racers, and has been around motorcycles his entire life. He started riding at four years old and started racing full-time at 15 years old. His father took him, and his sister racing every weekend, all across the country. Cory quickly progressed through the ranks and got his professional AMA Pro Flat Track license in 2008 and my AMA Pro Road Racing License in 2013. Texter is currently a competitor in the American Flat Track series where he races and runs his own team, Cory Texter Racing. We are extremely proud to have Cory Texter as part our family of athletes.
