Since the company was started in 1991, Pro Circuit has managed to claim their share of number one titles. The original team started with Honda equipment and managed to land a Supercross Lites West and East championship with riders Brian Swink (East) and Jeremy McGrath (West). In 1993 the Pro Circuit switched over to Kawasaki motorcycles in 1993 and in 2004 introduced the four-stroke engine to their arsenal. The team has been a competing factor every year and have managed to pull in a total of 26 AMA Championships. Some of the best riders to compete for Pro Circuit include the following;
Jeremy McGrath – Known in the racing world as “Showtime” or “The King” Jeremy McGrath is considered the best rider to date. He has gathered 7 250cc Supercross Championships, 2 125cc Western region Supercross Championships, and a 250cc Outdoor Motocross Championship. He has the record for the most 250cc Supercross wins at 72. With this many wins under his belt, it is clear why they call him the best.
Ricky Carmichael – They may call Jeremy McGrath The King, but Ricky Carmichael has taken on the nickname GOAT, which stands for Greatest of All Time. Carmichael holds a number of records including 10 Motocross Championships, 5 Supercross Championships, 150 careers wins, and 102 motocross wins, 2 perfect seasons in motocross, and 5 AMA Rider of the Year awards. He is second in the standings for most Supercross wins, behind McGrath, with 48.
Ryan Villopoto – Villopoto joined the Pro Circuit team in 2006 and was able to capture a Motocross Championship with 6 wins. He won the event again in 2007 along with the West Supercross Lites, in 2008 he grabbed the 250cc Motocross Championship and in 2011 he was crowned Supercross champion. This young up-comer makes the current Pro Circuit team a contender in just about every category.
The track record Pro Circuit has produced clearly shows they know what they are doing. They know how to recruit the next big names and treat their riders right. The team continues to snatch up championships and will continue to further into the future.
