Four-time X-Games athlete hits gold at the final American Flat Track event in New Jersey

Cory uses a range of EBC Brakes products on his motorcycle

The last few months have been some of EBC-equipped American Flat Track rider Cory Texter’s hardest ever, as he battled to remain at the top spot of the ‘Production Twins’ class until the end of the season to clinch the championship.
Cory tells us in his own words how his final successful race went down, propelling him to victory…

“Going into the season finale at the Meadowlands Mile, I had to finish 8th or better if the rider in second won the race, to secure my first professional championship. I was completely confident in that, but you never know until the final chequered flag is waved.

“The track was brutal. Very rough and technical. They shortened our laps significantly. We had one practice, one qualifying session and one main event. Going into the main event, my plan was to get a good start and run toward the front and bring home the title. Like any racer, when the green flag dropped, I rode to win the race. I had over a two-second lead coming to the white flag and my motorcycle quit running. Thankfully, my title rival also broke early on in the race which enabled me to coast to the finish line and win the championship.”

“My journey in this sport so far has been incredible. I have been overlooked my entire career. Heck, they even had to use a podium photo from this season for my championship banner because I wasn’t one of the 25 riders or so the series thought would be relevant before the season started for media photo shoots!

“I couldn’t do it without my team, G&G Racing, and all of the great sponsors and supporters who have stuck behind me over the years. I put a lot of commitment into preparing for this season. It all started in January when I rented a house in Florida and moved my entire family down there for three months this season. It was a huge investment but it paid off.

“I am going to take a few days off and then get back to it with a couple of off-season events I have planned and also put together my second annual Winter Throwdown race I am promoting in January. I am stoked for that…”
