Reynoldsburg, OH - April 5, 2011 - Mushin Racing's Cam Covil has his sights set on a winning a national championship. Racing out of Webster, FL, Covil has laid down some impressive lap times during the first three rounds of this year's AMA ATV-Motocross Championship season. No one in the 90 Modified (8-15) class has come close to his performance. At the conclusion of Round 3 of the series at Ballance MX in Bowling Green, KY, Covil had amassed across the board moto wins in the first three rounds and led the class rankings by 15 points with three event wins.

Mushin Racing's Chase Horton began the 2011 season with a lot of bumps and grinds. Horton, racing out of Arcadia, SC, seemed as if he'd shaken his bad luck during Round 2 of the season where he exhibited his true racing form by finishing 3-2 in the motos to take a second place overall finish. But, apparently, his race woes weren't over. Round 3 mechanical gremlins reached up and bit Horton again. With a disappointing finish way back in the pack, Horton will have to do his homework before making the trip to Round 4 at Budd's Creek. Currently, after the first three rounds, Horton, still in the hunt for a championship podium, held down the fifth place position in the overall rankings, just four points out of fourth and nine points out of third.

Mushin Racing's Kodi Ward was in a spit-and-sputter mode at the opening round of this years MX Nationals, but found his race game during Round 2 with an overall win in the 90 Automatic Jr. (8-11) class. Heading into Round 3, Ward was poised to take another win but a heart breaking last lap glitch during moto one put a damper on his goals. With a win in the second moto, Ward managed to salvage a fifth place finish for the event. After the first three rounds, Kodi sat in second place in the class just 16 points behind the leader.

Mushin Racing's Ashton Ward may be the smallest of the team's contenders but his heart is that of a Pro. After two rounds of finishing a disappointing fifth overall, Ashton made up his mind that it was time to make his presence known in the 50 Limited Jr. (4-6) class. No more eating roost. The young Ward took it to the competiton with a focus unsurpassed by the other racers in the field and, with 2-4 moto scores, put himself on the podium with a third place overall finish. Ashton's performance at Ballance MX solidified him as a contender in the class and put him in third overall in the class standings.
