Listen up, here's a little inside info - Oak Creek, Wisconsin's Adam Bushman is perfectly aligned to carve out a benchmark 2013 season - so get your bids in early. Some outcomes are just crazy-simple to predict. Corner a wild cat and you become confetti. End a talented and determined racer's season prematurely, and sentence him to couch arrest with a kaput component, and you can bet the farm he'll come out firing on hyper-drive once he heals.
Adam Bushman was leading the 2012 AMA All Star National Championship when he was involved in a crash that put him on crutches for the remainder of the season.

"2012 was by far the best season I've had yet," Bushman declared. "I was leading the AMA All Star National Championship and was running 9th in the AMA Pro Flat Track Championship. I was fast qualifier at Hagerstown Speedway and came out with a 2nd place finish. Unfortunately, it all came to an abrupt stop in Peoria at the AMA Pro Flat Track National, after qualifying 2nd our team was confident we could come out of it with a win. However, I was involved in a crash over the jump and came out with a dislocated and broken hip, which put me on crutches for the remainder of the season."

Before Bushman's injury he sent a clear message of what he's capable of accomplishing with his focus honed to an even finer point. "These wins came right after I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, so that was a big burden lifted off my shoulders and I was able to focus on racing."

The wins Bushman refers to are back-to-back-to-back AMA All-Star Nationals, starting with Chilton Speedway in Wisconsin. Technically, because of its proximity to his Oak Creek home, Chilton is Bushman's home track, however - "It was actually the first time we had ever raced there," he adds. "The next race I won was Peoria Speedway, and then followed by Peoria TT. Also, our team was able to come together and figure out some of the problems with our setup that we were having earlier in the season."

As a result of the injury Bushman's post and pre-season training has already gotten underway. "I've been busy getting a new website up and running so fans can see all the news, photos, and videos of Bushman Racing, which should be up in a few weeks. Before my injury I had planned on moving to the Expert class in 2013, but I've decided to stay in the Pro Singles for one more year, so I can get experience on a twin. I can't thank K&N and all my 2012 sponsors enough for all the help in my success, and I look forward to building our relationship with them in 2013, and the new sponsors that come onboard."
