My name is Draik Beauchamp and I was born in Terre Haute, IN on January 11th 2000. I lived in Indiana until February of 2010 when we moved to our current location in Knoxville, TN. In addition to racing I like working in the garage, shooting and maintaining my guns, playing video games, rock climbing and crossfit.
I worked hard to graduate high school a semester early with 2 college courses completed so that I could pursue training in Florida. My racing plans had to change the beginning of February due to the loss of a sponsor, so now I'm back home in Knoxville, TN to work to afford my 2018 season and I will train here.
My goals in life are to have motorcycle racing as a paid career at the national or international level. Networking through racing most of my life has opened the door to many avenues to always stay involved with the industry, even if I can't be on the track.
I started riding at the age of 4, when my mom took the training wheels off of my bicycle, my dad took them off of my pocket bike. I started racing my pocket bikes (Blata 2.5 and Origami) when I was 5. This led me to mini-motard and flat track racing on my TTR 50 and KTM 50. I raced mini-motard on my Kawasaki KX65 for the 2010 season. For the 2011 season I got an RS 125 that I loved racing with WERA Southeast. For the 2012 Season I continued racing the RS 125 and attended the Nationals race, along with some STT track days and Jason Disalvo Speed Academy!
For the 2013 and 2014 Season I stepped up in CC's and jumped on a Ninja 250. Competeing on the Ninja 250 helped me accelerate towards gaining new skills and becoming more competitive. My first season on the Ninja 250 I raced towards 4 regional championships. For the 2014 season I raced the Ninja 250 in Expert Class. This led to a 1st Place and 2nd Place regional championship titles.
For the 2015 Season I was very successful on an SV 650. I secured the 2015 WERA Lightweight Twins SS Expert National Championship along with 5 WERA Regionals, with a total of 33 podiums!
2016 took me to MotoAmerica with 1/4ley Racing: On Track Development, where I raced in the KTM RC 390 Cup. It was a great learning experience and I finished 11th. I had hoped for a top 10 but due to a crash and injury I was forced to settle for 11th.
2017 brought me another blessed chance to once again race with 1/4ley Racing: On Track Development. I had learned a lot my first season. I was able to manage 6 podium finishes, including my first professional win, which secured my 5th place finish overall. This afforded me the opportunity to compete in KTM RC Cup World Finals in Jerez, Spain where I had a great time.
2018 threw us some curveballs, but I've been blessed with an outpouring of support and encouragement to keep me on the track. I will be racing the new WERA 300 SS class on a Yamaha R3. Then Altus Motorsports contacted me and asked me to ride in the MotoAmerica Junior Cup for them with Supercharged Energy on a Yamaha R3!
2019 season is looking good, finalizing plans and will share soon. I'm still looking for additional sponsors for 2019, so if you're interested or know anyone then please contact us. email:
