"Roadracing World started this exclusive special feature recognizing the most promising young road racers as an answer to pessimists who claimed North America had no new, up-and-coming young racers. This edition of the Roadracing World Young Gun Awards marks the 20th consecutive year of showcasing an abundance of new talent.

Roadracing World Young Guns have won:

  • FIM MotoGP and FIM Superbike races and World Championships;

  • AMA Pro races and Championships, including six AMA Pro/MotoAmerica Superbike Championships.

  • WERA National Endurance Championships and WERA National Challenge Championships;

  • ASRA/Formula USA Grand National and CCS National Championships;

  • AMA Road Racing Grand Championships and Horizon Awards;

  • USGPRU National Championships;

  • Many regional and local titles.

The competition has continually become more intense as more—and younger—racers with higher levels of accomplishment are nominated, and the level of achievement required to make the grade keeps getting tougher. 

Roadracing World has spent the last several months accepting nominations and evaluating road racers between the ages of 12 and 18 (as of the start of the 2016 season) who have, at a minimum, won Expert-level road races and/or Championships on a 125cc or larger racebike or had outstanding results as an Amateur/Novice. Most of the riders included here have done far more than the minimum.

The young men (and one young woman) recognized here are the top-30 most promising young road racers in North America. All have earned the title of Roadracing World Young Gun."

The "one young woman" is Stacey........
