— Dirt Wheels reader builds a National level ATV MX race machine —

Hi Dirt Wheels, my name is Mack McDermott from Rhode Island.

This is my 2009 Kawasaki KFX450R. Bought it a little over a year ago in bone stock form and after riding a track a few times I decided to get full blown into racing and build my KFX450 to as close to a national level build as I could. I Teamed up with Tranghese Motorsports out of Springfield, Massachusetts to help me build it and race in the NEATVMX series. Photos by Mike Fig Photography
