Matt Stewart may not be the fastest pro in the series but his dedication to the sport is the reason why there is even an AMA National Supermoto series running right now. Matt not only races but also runs the series and the WAR Supermoto Series.

Doug Henry is easily one of the nicest guys you will ever meet and was hands down one of the fastest riders. He won the 1998 AMA Motocross series for Yamaha and was inducted into the motorcycle hall of fame in 2005.  Unfortunately in 2007 Doug had a very bad crash during a supermoto race and broke his back. He was paralyzed from the waist down and is working extremely hard toward another recovery.

Mauno is the 2013 World S1 Champion. I've been fortunate enough to watch him race and he is hands down one of, if not the, fastest SM racers out there today. He is currently riding for Team TM and is looking to win the title again in 2014.
