Reynoldsburg, OH / August 17, 2010 /  During the 2010 AMA-ATV Motocross Championship season the youth members of Mushin Racing came, saw and conquered. Their youthful energy and competitive spirit paid huge dividends for the newly formed team all season long, especially at the final round of the series hosted by Racer Productions at the legendary Loretta Lynn's Dude Ranch on August 14/15, 2010. As a team, the Mushin Racing youth logged 6 Top Ten finishes and 3 Top Five finishes at the final round held in the hills of Western Tennessee which netted the team 7 Top Ten finishes and 3 Top Five finishes in the 2010 AMA-ATV MX Championship series' final overall standings.

Proving that "Dynamite comes in small packages.", Ashton Ward, the 50cc Limited Junior class competitor of the Mushin Racing youth forces, took his lumps at Loretta's finishing in the 10th spot, but didn't let that deter him from bringing home 2nd place in the overall points standings in the class. Young Ashton captured one win, two seconds, and a third place finish during the season to keep himself on the 50 Limited Jr. podium come banquet time in November.

If Ashton Ward is the "dynamite in a small package" for the Mushin Racing youth team then Maci Devenport is the "femme fatale" of the team. Competing in the 90 Auto Senior class, Maci stuck to her race game and bruised, if not demolished, numerous male egos on her way to a commanding finish in the class. With two wins, three seconds and three third place event finishes, she clawed her way to not only a 3rd place finish overall at the final 2010 AMA-ATV MX round but put her self in the history books as the only young lady to take a top three podium spot in the overall series' points standings. With her season long performance, Devenport captured 2nd in the overalls in the 90 Auto Sr. ranks.

Injury plagued young Kodi Ward in the early part of the season and at one point he was a long shot to make any waves at all in the 90 Auto Junior class. As a matter of fact, after the 5th round he was ranked 18th in the class and his 2010 debut in the class wasn't looking good. Taking matters to heart, Kodi nursed his way back to health, improving round after round in his racing program, and, after a 3rd place finish in the class at Loretta's, managed to finish an inspiring 6th place in the overall series' points rankings when the season ended.

The Top 5 and Top 10 finishers of the Mushin Racing youth team at Loretta's and for the 2010 season are:

  • Maci Devenport
    • 90 Auto Sr. - 3rd at Loretta's - 2nd overall for the season
  • Tanner Stockton
    •  90 Auto Sr. - 4th at Loretta's - 4th overall for the season
    •  90 CVT - 10th at Loretta's - 8th overall for the season
  • Spencer Meyer
    •  70 CVT - 9th at Loretta's - 6th overall for the season
  • Ashton Ward
    •  50 Limited Jr. - 10th at Loretta's - 2nd overall for the season
  • Kodi Ward
    •  90 Auto Jr. - 3rd at Loretta's - 6th overall for the season
  • Hunter Harper
    •  Supermini - 6th overall for the season
