Butch Sprain - #147 Knoxville TN

What can I say about a hard charger like Butch Sprain. Second time on a Team Hansen racer and he put himself on the podium twice in two days behind the country's top running Norton Manx replica. Ask him how he does it and he can't tell you. All he says is, "Fire the motor up and give me the throttle." After he comes in off the track, I ask him how it ran and all I get is an excited rebel yell.

Steve Brown - #57x Albuquerque, NM

Steve is the thinking man's racer. Yep, he's thought it all out. He knows just where to put that front tire on every turn, on every lap. He knows how to come off a corner. Maybe that's why he put a Team Hansen CR 450 replica into 6th place at Daytona first time riding the motorcycle. What can you say about a guy that puts the number one plate on his bike three years in a row.

Scott Strickler - #118 Indianapolis, IN

Always searching for a faster way around the track, here's a young guy with all the vintage knowledge of a man twice his age. Scott is currently pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering. Beginning in 1995, Scott has raced aboard an ex-works 500 BSA, a 1937 Rudge Ulster, along with Team Hansen's CR-450s. He occasionally also races dirt track in AHMRA.

Dave Rosno - #28 Eagle, WI

Everyone knows 'Super' Dave. He's the guy who gets more from your racer than you thought it had to give. This is the man who knows the setup. He's so good at it, he teaches others how to do it.

Karsten Illg - #19x

Karsten has been a motocrosser and in 2003 made the move to road racing in his second year he is always running at the front. Also, the 19x he carries is his fathers number run in AHRMA for many years.

Mark Loveland - #689

Daytona 2002.

Andrew Murry - #14x

Andrew has been racing with his brother Craig in AHMRA and was the 2003 middleweight superbike class champion.
