American Flat Track

Shana Texter-Bauman

Accomplishments: Shayna Texter-Bauman is a history maker, inspirational figure, role model, and quite possibly, the most popular rider in all of dirt track racing. In 2011, Texter-Bauman became the first female to win a Progressive American Flat Track Main Event with her GNC2 triumph at Knoxville Raceway. As monumental as that was, it was only a small preview of the greatness to come from Texter-Bauman. She ranks as the most decorated rider in Parts Unlimited AFT Singles history with her career class tally of 19 wins. Texter-Bauman boasts a unique blend of tactical acumen, go-for-broke bravery, iron will, and diminutive size that makes her practically unstoppable in mile and half-mile competitions. She continues to rewrite record books with each successive victory like she did in the 2019 Texas Half-Mile where she and her brother, Cory, became the first siblings to earn AFT Main Event victories on the same day. In 2022 Texter-Bauman joined her husband, Briar Bauman, in the premier Mission SuperTwins class on a Factory Indian FTR750 motorcycle.

Briar Bauman

Accomplishments: Following a long climb up the dirt track pecking order, two-time Grand National Champion Briar Bauman is now recognized as a modern era titan in dirt track racing. The Salinas, California native worked his way into the premier Mission SuperTwins class in 2012 where, at age 17, he promptly won the Rookie of the Year award. He built on that early success for the better part of a decade, scoring four career victories heading into the 2019 campaign. In 2019 he more than doubled his career wins tally and notched up 15 podiums en route to a GNC triumph and was even more impressive during his 2020 title defense. He set a new personal best for race wins in a season at six, while securing 13 podiums in 15 races en route to his second successive title victory. Bauman came agonizingly close to winning a third crown in 2021 and 2022, adding another six wins and 22 podiums to his resume in a pair of heated rematches with reigning champion Jared Mees. Cheerful, earnest, and optimistic, Bauman is among the most popular riders in the paddock among fans and competitors alike. He wears his emotions on his sleeve and a broad smile on his face, yet he has the grit and determination to face the most difficult challenges.
