GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing and Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. have reached an agreement to name the 2013 Roadracing World AMA Pro Racing Young Gun Of The Year.
The new Young Gun Of The Year Award is based on Roadracing World’s 17 consecutive years of recognizing the best young road racers in North America. The 2013 version of the annual feature recognized 30 riders–17 of them AMA Pros–and was published in the March, 2013 print edition of Roadracing World magazine. One of those riders is likely to be named the 2013 Roadracing World AMA Pro Racing Young Gun Of The Year and receive a $2,500 cash award.
To be eligible for the award, riders must have been no older than 18 at the start of the 2013 GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing season. The award will go to the eligible rider with the most overall points in either the Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport or GoPro Daytona SportBike classes and a check will be presented during the 2013 GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing Awards Banquet.

Beach, Cameron Beaubier, Josh Day, Jason DiSalvo, Dustin Dominguez, Danny Eslick, Bobby Fong, Jake Gagne, Nicky Hayden, Roger Hayden, Tommy Hayden, Josh Herrin, Jake Holden, John Hopkins, Elena Myers, Shane Narbonne, Huntley Nash, Tyler Odom, Joey Pascarella, Chris Peris, James Rispoli, Ben Spies, Chris Ulrich and Blake Young.
