Nick Wey is a fan favorite, and has been for quite a long time. However, lately his actual race results haven’t been what people had come to expect from him. This year, with this in mind, he has teamed up with old friend Alan Brown to put together a program on Kawasakis, hoping to bring his results back to where he thinks they should be. We caught up with him yesterday at the Kawasaki test track.

Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s Hunter Hewitt has been a pro for a few years now. His dad, Bobby Hewitt, owns the Rockstar Energy Suzuki race team, and when Hunter hit the pros, he had a ride right away, for obvious reasons. However, his results weren’t that great, and a lot of talk began about whether or not he had his ride for the right reasons. So, in 2011, he stepped aside and raced as a privateer, to his best results of his career – top 10 in the East Lites points, with top finishes of sixth in Atlanta, seventh in St. Louis, and eighth at the Vegas finale. Now, he’s back on the team, having earned the ride legitimately, and he’s looking forward to proving some things in 2012.

Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Trey Canard has had a tough last half of 2011. After winning three supercrosses in his first full 450cc season, he broke his femur while testing for outdoors. He returned halfway through the Nationals, and was an immediate contender, then broke his femur again at Washougal. Since then, he’s been sidelined, but he started riding again recently. Then he had a vicious crash and broke his collarbone recently. He had surgery a week ago, and we caught up with him to find out how he’s doing, talk about the Leatt Brace’s potential role in his injury, and find out how his good friend is doing.
