Trevor Brunner returns in 2023 and looks to build on his debut season with the team aboard the YZ450F. The Indiana rider ranks as one of the brightest prospects the world of dirt track has to offer. A first-generation racer, he has been competing on two wheels since the age of three.
Not satisfied with his performance at the 2018 AMA Flat Track Grand Championship, Brunner refocused, altering his diet and training with hopes of ending his amatuer career in ideal fashion in 2019. It worked… he walked away with four AMA #1 plates and was named 2019 AMA Nicky Hayden Horizon Award Winner and 2019 AMA Athlete of the Year.
He made his professional debut in 2020, where his stock continued to rise in stratospheric fashion. Brunner ended his rookie AFT Singles season ranked seventh with a stunning Springfield ST victory serving as exclamation point. Brunner made the same leap between his rookie and sophomore seasons as many talented youngsters have before him, he proved himself as a contender for the throne in 2021. In 2022, he made progress throughout the year and hit his stride in the second half of the season, scoring a pair of wins and six podiums to earn fourth in the highly competitive AFT Singles Championship.
