Madison County boy wins big at this year’s AMA Flat Track Grand Championship held in July.
Brentley Krimminger, 7, of Collinsville took first place in the Mission Foods American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Flat Track Grand Championships on July 9, making this his second in a row for the 50jr class.
Krimminger has been racing for two years and has amassed a room full of trophies and number one plates. He is a kid that loves the outdoors and dirt bike racing more than anything.
“His favorite thing is anything outdoors. He is outdoors 24/7. He loves playing with his brother, but bike racing is number one,” said Brentley’s mother, Asleigh Krimminger.
Young Krimminger has been around dirt bike racing all of his life and credits his father, Travis and his Uncle Chris as the main influencers for his passion to ride dirt bikes, who are former dirt bike racers. The end goal for Brentlley is to become a professional dirt bike racer.
When I asked Brentley how far he wanted to go in the sport, he said, “ Go pro.”
“He’s a really good kid and he really deserved it. He really worked his but off this year. He trained with Jeffery Carver for about two months before the Nationals to get where he’s at now,” said Travis Krimminger.
The Mission Foods AMA Flat Track Grand Championship is the premier amateur flat track event, and the only race in the country where you can earn an AMA National number one plate in amateur flat track racing. AMA National number one plates will be awarded to racers in each class across all four disciplines of flat track racing: mile, half-mile, short track, and TT.
