Tyler Bowers rode a motorcycle for the first time at the age of 2. His love of racing began soon after that. "I got my first trophy, and that kind of sparked the flame of competition in me," said Bowers, who's from Danville, Ky.

At 22, Bowers has now won three consecutive AMSOIL Arenacross championships for the Babbitt's Monster Energy AMSOIL Kawasaki team, and is trying for his fourth.

Dirt-bike racing has cost Tyler Bowers two broken legs, more than 10 broken fingers (he's broken each finger in both hands at least once), a collapsed lung, a lacerated spleen and so many concussions that he's lost track.

" You ain't seen the best of me yet, Give me a chance, I'll make you forget the rest." - from "Fame," by Michael Gore and Dean Pitchford The hardest thing that Alana Bower has had to do in her 15 years on this planet was to tell her parents that their dreams for her future didn't match her own.
