When the world outside is frozen solid with ice you could cozy up with your Wii, go vroom and pretend you're riding a motorcycle, or you could bundle up and churn some ice on a real bike.

"We have been riding on the ice this past winter to train, and we're looking forward to the start of the 2011 season," remarked Adam and Allyx Camp's dad, Stan. "And we are very happy to have K&N onboard again this year."

Stan is the Dirt Track Director for AMA District 17, a position he understands all too well. Stan raced for a couple of decades himself, as a junior in the AMA professional ranks, until moving into stock cars for a few years. Stan also understands that the family that races together, well, they spend a good deal of time together, and that's just as he and his wife Holly planned it. They have three kids, the oldest son Adam is 17, their daughter Austyn is pushing 16 and the youngest girl Allyx is 13. All three started racing early. Adam for example already has ten years of racing experience and Allyx is right behind with nine years. Austyn doesn't race anymore, but between her and her mom, they handle all the logistics that allow Adam and Allyx to stay focused on the track, or the ice, as is the case currently around their Farmington, Illinois home.

"Last year was a learning year for both Adam and Allyx," says Stan. "Allyx's highlight was probably second place finish in the state championship TT race in the 250cc class. And Adam finished top three at a couple of the local races in the pro class. Our first race hopefully will be March 19th at DeQoin, Illinois. That will be a warm up for The April 19th National."

Allyx's goal for this year is a top three overall finish in the 250cc class, which would be a significant accomplishment, being how very competitive the group of 250cc riders will be this year.

Adam's goal is to make a GNC Pro Class program. "We were very close last year," adds Stan. "With hard work and a little luck I feel both goals are reachable."
