Pressure is an ambiguous challenger, crashing down on some, while at the same time lifting others up into champions - it comes down to a matter of perception and interpretation. At age 15, Trenton Briley is far too talented and busy moving forward to concern himself about such matters of uncertainty though.

"I'm excited to be stepping up to a new class full of new drivers. Being one of the youngest drivers I don't feel too much pressure and am ready for this season," commented Briley.
Briley announced his 2012 SuperLite intentions by winning the opening round of the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Race Series at Glen Helen Raceway.

In a mayhem-riddled Lucas Oil Regional Off-Road Race Series Southern California season opener at Glen Helen Raceway, Briley survived the battle of attrition to claim the coveted SuperLite truck class victory. When the Briley Motorsports team's plans to move into Pro Buggy fell through, they adjusted and stepped into the highly competitive SuperLite class, where Briley is clearly one of the youngest competitors ever. The teen from Palmdale, California has that kind of skill, and combined with enough youthful exuberance to allow him to dismiss that last minute changes should be difficult, he will be tough to stop.

Recognizing a prodigy when he sees one, Brian Deegan of Metal Mulisha personally sponsored Trenton in 2010 to step into a new class of vehicle. Briley has also been mentored and trained by some of the top professional race car drivers and motocross athletes such as Kyle Leduc, Steve Barlow, Johnny Greaves, and Kyle Lewis. Briley has been racing off-road for four years, starting with a basic Trophy Kart and then transitioning into the Modified Kart. He was a top five finisher right from the get-go and quickly became a consistent visitor to the podium.

"Lately I've just been focusing on school and getting ready for the season," said Briley. The national 16-race Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series gets underway on March 31, at Firebird Raceway in Chandler, Arizona. Races will be broadcast on CBS Sports, the NBC Sports Network, the Speed Channel and MavTV. You can pretty much bet that at some point during that season, the K&N sponsored whiz-kid will be featured on all their highlight segments.
