Personal History

My name is Kennedy Kimmel.  I have been racing since I was 4 years old.  I started on a PW50 and also rode a KTM JR 50.  I am the third generation of a motocross family.  My mom raced as a child along with my Uncle, Grandfather, Grandmother, and Aunt.  I have always been told it runs in my blood.  I continued on to a Cobra 50 Sr and then to a KTM 65.  Once I had reached that point, I really wanted to make it to Loretta Lynns Amateur Nationals.  I reached that goal in 2011.  I placed 5th in the Girls 9-11 class on a Suzuki 85.  I continued working very hard, racing locally while also learning.  In 2012 I qualified again for the Nationals and placed 13th in the Girls 9-11.  In 2013 I qualified once again.  I had terrible luck while at Loretta Lynns.  I ended up crashing and dislocating my elbow.  In 2014 I moved up to a Kawasaki 250F as a 13 year old.  I love riding and racing this bike.  I put everything I had to qualify in the Womens 14+ and accomplished that.  I did not finish where I would have liked but felt that I learned so much this year.  I will continue to practice and work very hard at improving my riding skills and come back stronger than ever for the 2016 season.  I am now a part of an amazing race team, Motocross Ladies.  I have met some amazing ladies and recently had the chance to spend a week with all of them at James Stewart Spring Championship. 

Riding Goals

I plan on improving my riding skills by training and practicing.  I want to attend more national events and accomplish better finishes.
