BIO: My Name is Kevin Newman at the races they call me "kdaddy". I started riding when I was 6 years old, and it stuck ever since. I did my first hillclimb at 14, and really enjoyed it. I ride every chance I get and occasionally compete in cross country racing. If I'm not riding in the dirt, I'm on the water wake-surfing, or shredding a stand up jet ski. I race a Ktm 450, Ktm 610, and a GSXR 750.
SPONSORS: NKS racing, Modesto Honda/Ktm, Motopro graphics, Allnutt Racing, Adam Shelton, and of course Mom and Dad.
