Personal History

           My name is Aaron Lawhon. I’m 22 years old, engaged to be married in 2014, and I live in Barboursville, WV. I started riding dirt-bikes and four-wheelers at a young age, like most in this sport. I started racing competitively when I was 14 years old, and started traveling to races when I was 18. My other passion besides motocross is fitness. I work out daily to help me compete too my fullest ability. I work full-time for Rubberlite Inc to pay for the expenses that we all know comes with this sport. I plan to graduate from Marshall University with a Business/Marketing degree in 2016 to help pursue my career in the sport I love. I realized a long time ago that I couldn’t race forever so I decided to start to learn more about the marketing side of motocross. 
           I understand the responsibility that I take when excepting a sponsor. On the same hand I understand the risk you are taking sponsoring someone you don’t know personally. I know that it takes way more than winning races with your name on my team; it takes the right attitude, people skills, the drive for success, and the commitment to the sport and my sponsors. 

Riding Goals

My goals for this year are to compete every weekend at tracks all over the east coast. More specifically I have already planned two GNCC races, one in New York, and one in North Carolina. I also plan to qualify for Loretta Lynn’s this year and finishing well there. I will be at every national qualifier that I can make it to. My work schedule is set through the week and its no problem for me to travel on weekends. Overall my “Riding Goals” are to be the best I can in every aspect of the sport; everything from performance on the track, moving up in class, and providing a good image and encouragement to young riders in this sport.

Competitive Highlights

          Throughout the years of competing I have had many experiences that I consider “highlights.” Some typical; series points winner in 2011, 22 overall first place wins. Most memorable; pulling holeshot at Loretta Lynn’s qualifier in 2012. Not so typical, but most memorable are the people I have met and the experiences I have had at the tracks over the years.
