TriStar Motorsports: I’ve turned to our desert world for the last couple shirts because we needed to mix it up a little bit! Let me introduce you to a Trophy Truck team TriStar Motorsports. Founded in 2012, this team was a mix of three teams of champions, hence the name TriStar. Chris Brown, Chris Kemp and Steve Hengeveld have hundreds of wins and championships between them, all on two wheels. I had to laugh when I looked up information on their team and in the “Mission” column they simply put WINNING. Since the inception in 2012, the team has peeled down to Chris Kemp as the owner and driver.
Chris Kemp is a lifelong and avid motorcycle rider and racer. His dad was a founding member of the Dirt Diggers Motorcycle Club, and has had his leg flung over a bike almost everyday. In 2007, he raced a Wide Open BC Car in the Baja 1000 and caught the bug. So much so that he bought a Jimco Class 1 2-seat car off eBay! It ended up being a good deal, taking him all the way to a 2010 BITD 1500 Class Champion! He has recently moved into a trophy truck with a Geiser Truck. He has been consistent and near the overall, but hasn’t made one stick, yet.
The truck number is 3 or 93 depending on what series he is running. If they are running Trick Truck in the Best in the Desert, then you will see the (then gold) now white with red stripe truck, with a 3. If you are in Baja and watching or chasing a SCORE race, you will see the truck with a big 93 on the side.
Co-drivers and support crews include some of our friends Shanon Powell and JT Taylor.
