BIO:   Sammy "The Silent Assassin" Hummel is a quiet young man who does his talking on his bikes for Team Peterson.  Sammy started riding 2-wheel dirt bikes at age 3 and started racing AMA events soon after.  At age 7 he was invited to participate in the KTM Junior Supercross at AT&T Park in San Francisco.  Sammy's first love in racing is the hillclimb discipline with over 100 amateur podiums in AMA and WCHA.  Sammy has also been successful in other racing disciplines outside of hillclimbing such as MX with 17 podiums, AMA X-country multiple wins and podiums, and even 2 wins in flat track. Sammy enjoys coaching his younger sister, Kristen, who has also earned multiple #1 AMA plates.  Sammy also takes pride in his academics.  Sammy earned two Scholar Athlete awards at Cal High and in early 2018 he will be choosing an Engineering school for his 2018-19 Freshman year.  He also holds a 2nd degree MMA black belt.  Sammy really enjoys hanging out with his riding buddies and camping with the families.  He strives to be a good role model for other kids coming up in the sport of motorcycle riding and racing.  Sammy's goal is to continue to work hard and get better as he enters his third year as a pro in 2018.

Q&A:

What are your goals for 2018?/Future?

Keep working for a NAHA championship and race wins.

What was your most memorable sporting moment?

Getting a podium at my first NAHA race was by far my most memorable moment.

What is your favorite NAHA venue and why?

My favorite venue is the Northwest Nitro National in Sunnyside, Wa. because the speed of the hill and the rhythm at the bottom suits my style.
