Walker Fowler
Walker Fowler has been on top of the podium in almost every class he has raced the past four years in GNCC competition.  Most recently, he captured the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) XC-2 Pro-Am title in 2011 and was named the “2011 AMA ATV Racer of the Year.”

Fowler got hooked on the sport at a very young age going to watch races with his dad.  “He decided to take me to a race and watch his good friend Kim Kuhnle, who at the time was a top pro. I was hooked.”

“I'm attracted to ATV racing because of the family atmosphere,” Fowler says. 
“I gave up a normal childhood to devote it to racing. I wanted only to be a racer. Also, I have the best parents in the world that backed me all the way to get me where I am. I owe them everything!”

He says there have been some doubters along the way, but encourages young racers to stick to it.  “Some people told me it would never happen, but their doubt just fueled the fire even more.”

Fowler’s enthusiasm also carries over to his Yamaha race quad: “My YFZ450R is an incredible machine -- top of the line in performance. The maneuverability on the track is unmatched and near effortless. With the awesome horsepower yet easy ride, it makes my job a whole lot less complicated. It chews up and spits out any obstacle you throw at it!” 

Fowler races as part of Randy Hawkins’ Am-Pro Yamaha team, which is expanding Hawkins’ motorcycle Championship winning knowledge into ATV racing.
