SYS Racing Team
Halfway through the 2015 season in MX Simulator, co-founders Jeremy Hinners and Kellen Brauer split from the legendary Barry Motorsports team and joined 2010 MXSoN champion Nathan Zaworski to form SYS Racing. The team initially started out on KTM models in MX Simulator and raced as such for the 2015 outdoor season where Hinners would finish 18th in the 450 outdoor campaign.
Towards the end of the season, the team grouped up with former Barry teammate Cody Darr, 2013 Anaheim 2 winner Daniel Markham and 2013 450 outdoor champion Zack Dupuis to push the team to six riders. The switch to the Yamaha model prompted the longest tenure with a bike the team would have as they stayed with the brand for the following three years. The team had strong results in Supercross with Dupuis ending up 21st in the championship while Hinners also had some quality rides as well. Moving outdoors, Brauer would return to racing giving the team its best series finish to date with a 10th in the 450 Nationals. Then came a huge switch-up for the whole program coming into the 2017 season.
Years before Kellen or Jeremy played MX Simulator, a legendary team of riders known as the Vitamin Water Yamaha racing team collaborated. In an effort to return old glory, SYS embarked on creating a super-team with several past VWY riders and then expanding into the European side of the game with loads of new riders. The addition of Morgan Fabreguettes, Morgan Marlet, Bruno Gouttesoulard, Sebastien Durand, Kyle Bennett, Bryan Haskell, Mikey Owen, Corentin Delaruelle and Jon Rawlins brought the team up to an unprecedented 14-rider team for the 2017 season. On the USA-side, it was Hinners who had the best 450 season finishing up in 15th spot while Brauer claimed a 4th in the 250 East region. In Europe, it was also Brauer leading the team with 8th in 450 Supercross and 26th in the MXGP class. At the end of the season, the team was looking to downsize once again and bring it back to a core group of guys.
In 2018, the team was scaled back to Hinners, Brauer, Haskell, Dupuis, Darr and Zaworski. The team also sought out and added two Amateur riders to the program in Robert Pink and Bradley Clay. This time it was Dupuis who had the best season for the team finishing up 30th in 450 Supercross despite missing a chunk of the season. Zaworski carried the torch outdoors running his trusted two-stroke and having some good rides. Clay decided to part with the team at the end of the season.
The dawn of a new era for SYS Racing came about into the 2019 season. The team partnered with FAMmx Designs to co-run the team while once again expanding. Heckman Productions and Motoagogo also came on board to add Alex Heckman, Ethan Parks, Motoagogo, Blake Shiman and Aaron Anderson to the team. The team is looking forward to a fantastic season ahead!
