A Fresh Face Racing was formed in 2021 and is now a 3 rider team. It started with Quincy Bowers who showed a talent for motorcycle road racing that could lead to professional level competition. He is now racing Expert Middleweight divisions in the CVMA 2022-2023 season His father Dennis joined the team in April 2022 and is now racing Amateur Middleweight divisions . The team was also a chance for A Fresh Face to sponsor women in sports. We scouted the racing scene and found a perfect fit in Rainey Pogue. Rainey races Expert Middleweight divisions alongside Quincy. The goal this year is to get one or both of our expert riders into MotoAmerica competition.

Quincy is 26 years old and has been riding dirt bikes for most of his life. At 18 years of age he got his first street sportbike and paid his dues in the canyons of Southern California. He started his track riding career in 2019 at tracks in Arizona. He has been racing at Chuckwalley Valley Raceway in the CVMA series and some select CRA events since 2020.

Well, it was an interesting year with a lot of highs and lows. We are a new team with much to learn about the in and outs of the racing game.
A Fresh Face Racing would like to thank Jason Pridmore and his crew at JP43 Training for the lessons and the support both mental and physical. Also, SHF Contracting, Racers Edge Performance (Dunlop) and Dale, Dainese LA, Ryder Gear and Eyedentity Graphics (You saw it) for the wrap. Most of all, Wendy (Quincy's mother and my wife) and her company, A Fresh Face Aesthetics, INC for the incredible support in this crazy endeavor. You are the best of us hands down!
Rainey Pogue's expert rookie year was eventful to say the least with several mechanical issues and crashes. She had a sticky throttle crash and a few where the other riders just plain took her out. She had a few injuries during the year but nothing too serious as the team all uses the latest in safety equipment. She did have to push through an ankle injury that sidelined her for a round. Despite missing 4 of the 7 races in the FemmeWalla class, Rainey finished 4th in points for the season with a 4th, a 3rd and then jumped on a borrowed bike for a 1st place finish. Well done Rainey! Unfortunately, missed races took her out of contention for Supersport Middleweight, Formula Middleweight and Middleweight Shootout standings where the competition is incredible. Rainey did run fast in the last round and it looks like she is set for a very good run next year. We are honored to have her on the team and expect great things from her next year.
Quincy Bowers had his share of crashes in his expert rookie year and suffered an engine failure in the final round. He ran 10 of 14 races in Formula Middleweight with two 6th place finishes to finish 20th in the Championship standings. He finished 16th for the season in the Supersport Middleweight class with 3 top tens and an impressive 5th place finish in round 5. Quincy finished 11th in the Supersport Middleweight Shootout standings by finishing in the top ten for 3 of the 7 races this season. Congratulations! We are building a bike and entering him in 2 MotoAmerica races this summer. June 23-25 at The Ridge Motorsports Park, WA. and July 7-9 at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca, CA.
For me, I had a memorable year. I'm a 59 year old Amateur which is probably rare. With my one and only race weekend in round 7 at the end of last year, this was my first full race season. I won 10 of 14 races in Amateur Supersport Middleweight and 8 of 14 in Amatuer Formula Middleweight to win both Championships. In Formula 40 Middleweight (40 yrs and older, amateurs and experts alike), I finished 4th in the standings with 3 - 2nd place and 9 top ten finishes. Great season for me. Next year I'm with the big fish and will be happy with anything close to top ten if I can manage it. Thanks to Quincy for dragging me around the track at speed.
