My name is Kevin Welter and I am from Crookston Minnesota. I would like to one day be a professional motocross mechanic. Racing has always been a lifestyle for me. I grew up doing so and have never thought twice if this is what I wanted to do with my life.
The Privateer Journey
For the 2012 Supercross season I will be working as an Intern/backup mechanic for a few people I met in the previous season.
I am currently employed at Wheels, a Polaris, Victory, Kawasaki, Suzuki dealership located in Fargo ND.
In the 2010 season I called around to a couple teams looking for an intern spot and found myself with the warthog crew within two weeks. It was a great and fun learning experience and that was when I made up my mind on this is what I would like to do for a living.

Motorcycle Mechanics Institute
One part of the bike that really intrigues me is the suspension components. I attended a few RaceTech seminars to further my education and hope to one day specialize in this field.
