You doggies know Slaw shoots you straight. So, when I say I had never heard of Levi Kitchen before Loretta’s this year, you know I’m being honest.
The Washington State native broke out at the Ranch this year, dominating the 250 and 450 B Limited classes (he was winning by like half a minute!) and winning the AMA Amateur Rider of the Year (awarded to best B rider).
He carried that over to the Mini O’s, where he swept the 250 and 450 A and 250 and 450 Pro Sport classes in Supercross. He then went 1-1-2-DNF in the motocross portion and won the Dunlop Silver Tire Award, awarded to the rider in the Pro and A classes that accumulates the highest number of points in the supercross main and motocross overall combined.
Needless to say, it’s been a pretty good year for the 19-year-old.
Well, it got even better, as Levi will be joining the Monster Energy/Star Racing Yamaha team, which now has 101 riders. It’s not official on if he’ll race amateur or pro in 2021, but he’s already out testing with the team.
We caught up with him for a brief chat earlier this week.
