Shayna Texter #25A
Shayna started riding a motorcycle at four years old. It was tough for her to start racing at a young age because of the active career her father had in AMA Pro Racing. Shayna played soccer up until the 2003 season. Cory would start racing full-time that season. After watching her brother for only three races, Shayna decided she wanted to line up and give it a try on a TTR-125. She won her first race. A couple weeks later she was on a more powerful YZ85. She won that race. By the end of her first season, Shayna was racing an 85, 125, 250, and her brother’s 450 and it wasn’t uncommon for her to win all four classes in one day.
Over the years, Shayna has been establishing herself as one of the top competitors in the sport. She wants other female riders to know that anything is possible and don’t let the fact that you are a female hold you back.

Sam Wiggins #56A
Born in 1990, Sam Wiggins started racing at age 11 and in 2009 Sam turned Pro. He currently rides AMA Pro Flat Track Series in the Pro Singles Class.
“I wasn’t looking to really go anywhere with it, all I wanted to do was to see how I could compete at this level and have fun.” Sam said about turn Pro at 19 years old.
Sam competed in more races and became a main event rider more often. IN 2011 he competed in about half the AMA series.
“I was living in Minnesota with a good friend, Kevin Anderson. We traveled from coast to coast competing in all this races. I was consistently making main events, which was tough.” Said Wiggins.
Most races have over 40 entrants and only the top 18 make the Main Event. Sam would finished top 10 in many of the races. Sam doesn’t come from a racing family and has raced in the series while maintaining a full-time job. He continues to work hard and has continued to improve his standings while increasing the number of meets in which he competes.
Cold Hearted Custom Cycles is proud to have Sam as one of our sponsored riders and look forward to another successful year!
