If you’re into watching extreme motor sports on television, you may find Oak Harbor High sophomore Jeremy Kitchin Jr. competing in national motocross races.

He’s following in his father’s footsteps.

“I’ve been racing dirt bikes all my life and I tried to get him on a dirt bike, and he wouldn’t get on a dirt bike. He wanted to race four-wheelers,” said Jeremy Kitchin Sr., a two-time national champion racer.

“So I sold my go-kart for a little Honda, and he started racing it in arena-cross in the winter of the 2008 series. He brought home quite a few trophies racing in the ATV class, which is the same class that I raced in. He did really well with it and it just kind of took off from there.”
