Zac won the Pro Flat Track / Supermoto Racer of the year!

The article mention that, Zac Willett, Henderson, Ky., is either the most popular ATV racer in America or he’s highly skilled at self promotion. ( I think it’s a little of both) Zac was picked as the ATV Sport Pro Flat Track/Supermoto Racer of the Year for the second straight year.

Zac owes his thanks to all of his fans and friends for winning this award once again. The ATVSport people Choice Award is a popularity contest as well recognition for someone’s involvement in this sport. Zac has been racing more that half of his life and has 12 years at the national level. Both Zac and myself have made hundreds of friends over the years and supported the sport to the fullest.

Both Zac and I personally want to thank you for your vote and support once again this year. Hopefully this will the start of a winning year for him!

Thank You

David Willett
Zac’ Dad

'ATV Sport' People's Choice Awards
10 Winners: Amateurs To Pros
ATV Sport


In their ninth year, the ATV SportPeople’s Choice Awards were originally created as part of the Grand National Championship postseason ATV racing banquet and were designed to acknowledged racers for successful seasons in motocross and flat track. They are called the “People’s Choice Awards” because they are voted on by ATV Sport readers and www.atvsport.com Web site visitors.

We had another great voting turnout in 2007. Each separate category had 10 nominees and a spot for write-in candidates. As with many people’s choice awards, the people had their own opinion on who should win. Though all the racers were deserving, there can only be one winner for each category.
