Vesrah Suzuki's Nick McFadden Earns AMA "Youth Rider of the Year" Honors

Vesrah Development rider, 14 year old Nick McFadden, had a goal of winning the Youth Rider of the Year award at the 2011 AMA Racing Road Race Grand Championships at Putnam Park Road Course in Mount Meridian, IN this past weekend. He had been primarily racing on a Suzuki GSX-R 600 and a Suzuki SV-650 this season, but not forgetting his Moriwaki MD250H that he took to a National Championship in 2010 with the USGPRU. Nick and the team planned to contend for the AMA award using the MD250H and the Suzuki SV-650. Practice sessions were going well on both bikes, clocking good times, until a terminal mechanical issue occurred with the MD250H. "My bikes almost never have mechanical problems and we were just bummed that this happened on this weekend,” said Nick. “Our team owner, Mark Junge, was here this weekend and talked to Stewart with the USGPRU, and we were able to rent a bike from them."
