Eighteen year old Cody Gibson, up and coming ATV racer, says he realized he had a natural affinity for racing at a young age. "I had some friends in Englewood, Tennessee that had ATV's and I rode one of them and liked it a lot. I quickly felt comfortable enough to start getting crazy on it and realized I had a talent for riding these things," says Gibson. Cody, known for his no holds barred approach to tearing around the track with absolutely no fear, suffered a serious injury on his road to professional racing. "Four years ago, I broke my pelvis and sacrum trying to jump a road in Tennessee. It almost ended my career before it even started," says Gibson.
With a Championship in Pro-Am unlimited, and a 3rd place showing in Pro-Am Production in 2008, Cody has become the rider to watch.

Cody races for Walsh Race Craft, a manufacturer and dealer in aftermarket chassis components for high performance ATVs. He pilots a Walsh built Monster Energy Kawasaki KFX450R in both the Pro-Am Unlimited, and Pro-Am Production Classes. "The 2009 Kawasaki KFX450R is the best handling and most agile bike I have ever ridden. I can't wait to show everyone what it has at Round 1," says Gibson. With a Championship in Pro-Am unlimited, and a 3rd place showing in Pro-Am Production in 2008, Cody has become the rider to watch. "My 1st year racing Nationals, I won the A class and my second year I won the Pro-Am Unlimited. Now, I am winning the Pro-Am Production."

Cody is currently training to go pro and only uses K&N ATV Air Filters on his ATVs. "I use them because my team manager chooses them and he always knows what is best for me," says Cody. "Using only the best quality products keeps us from worrying about mechanical problems and lets us focus on winning the race," Team Manager Mike Walsh adds. "K&N products give us peace of mind."

Walsh Race Craft, located in Live Oak, Florida, manufactures long travel a-arms, swingarms, steering stems, subframes, and other suspension components, as well as billet aluminum products and other small ATV parts. "Each product we create is backed by multiple National Championships and countless National Victories," says Walsh. "We have some of the best people and companies in the motorsports industry supporting us this year, K&N being one of them. I am really looking forward to putting together a solid season for all of our sponsors."
