FRA Financial Group-Sponsored Racing Champ Shines on and off the Track

Following Impressive Wins at the AMA Flat Track Grand National, Nine-Year-Old Aidan RoosEvans Finds Himself in the Media Spotlight

O'FALLON, IL--(Marketwired - August 13, 2013) - After Aidan RoosEvans won amateur national championships Nos. 11 and 12 at the recent AMA Flat Track Grand National, the news media came calling. The nine-year-old racing phenom was profiled in the Aug. 5-edition of his hometown newspaper, the O'Fallon Progress (http://www.bnd.com/2013/08/05/2729618/ofallon-9-year-old-is-a-national.html). Upcoming features about Aidan have been planned for the September issue of American Motorcyclist, the official publication of the AMA, and Next Moto Champion magazine (issue date still being determined).

Sponsored by FRA Financial Group, Midland States Bank, ATVs & More and O'Neil, Aidan won No. 1 plates in the 65cc Modified Class ½ Mile and 65cc DTX Class Short Track races of the Grand Nationals in late June. He also was awarded the Fast Brain Award that included a $1,000 scholarship from the AMA.

Racing has been a passion of Aidan's since he began competing at three-years-old, and he's dominated his chosen sport, racking up 12 national amateur championships in six years. Aidan, who races on a Kawasaki KX 65 and Suzuki RM85, is a second-generation racer (his father, FRA Financial Group founder Joe RoosEvans began competing at age 12) and a third-generation racing enthusiast (Joe's father bought his first motorcycle, just as he would do for his own son years later).
