A1R Racing enlists the talents of Aidan RoosEvans for its Yamaha supported efforts in the 2024 Parts Unlimited AFT Singles Class.
Aidan RoosEvans will be aboard the A1R Racing Yamaha YZ450Fs in the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER class. This year marks an exciting opportunity for the team as it is set to grow significantly with support from Yamaha. The team will carry a full complement of crew, including four mechanics and former racer and professional bodybuilder Joe RoosEvans on board as coach.
Aidan has been a racer since the age of four and was a 14-time motorcycle dirt track amateur national champion before shifting his focus to auto racing, where he was named Warrior Region ASCR Rookie of the Year in 2018. Since returning to two wheels, the O’Fallon, Illinois, native has repeatedly proven himself against the best 450cc riders in the world, securing 13 top tens since 2020 while finishing ninth in the ’22 championship standings.
According to the team manager Derek Arnett, “Our success in the upcoming season is not only reliant on skill and talent, but also a huge effort as a team dedicated to one goal. We’ve put in a ton of hard work testing and tuning, and we are totally confident in what we’ve accomplished over the offseason. We’re race ready now and excited to see the fruits of our labor.”
Aidan himself said, “I couldn’t be more excited to start the season. With backing from Yamaha and all of our other great partners, I feel like this can be my best year yet. Honestly, I struggled at times getting a rhythm in recent years, but when I hopped back on the Yamaha, I felt right back at home. It was like a homecoming when we tried one last fall, and I was instantly hooked on the idea of coming back to Yamaha. Everything fell into place, and I’m really excited about having Yamaha be a part of our team in 2024.”
