The mini classes at the TWMX Race Series are always amongst the most popular, and it’s been great to see a large number of female racers on the entry lists. Peyton Naranjo isn’t big with words, but her results in the PW50 class do the talking for her. She is quite the speedster on her all-pink Yamaha!
What makes you want to ride as a girl and what do you want to prove in this sport?
I like to prove that girls can do it too, and that we’re just as fast as boys.
How long have you been racing and what led you to choose motocross?
I’ve been riding for 2 years. My brother rides and I’m just as fast as him.
How seriously do you take your racing, is it just for fun or do you have bigger aspirations?
I want to do car racing, but still ride dirtbikes. I like to do modeling and taking pictures for everybody and promoting my brands.
Who is the biggest influence in your racing?
Ryan Dungey and my mom’s brother!
What are your favorite types of tracks and track obstacles?
I love Milestone!
What is your favorite thing about being a motocross racer?
Beating the boys. (Laughs)
Tell me about your bike and why you chose it and what have you done to make it work well for you?
No, its stock, but we make it pink because I like to run my own style. I choose my own helmet, it’s yellow and blue from Answer.
At the TransWorld Race Series we try to offer a better racing experience, what do you think of our events?
Love it! Aaron is amazing.
