When GEICO Honda’s Justin Barcia clinched the Supercross Lites East Championship title in early May, it was the culmination of a lifelong dream. Barcia enjoyed a hugely successful amateur-racing career before transitioning into the professional ranks in the summer of 2009. Last year he finished runner-up in his rookie season in the Supercross Lites East Championship, and he returned in 2011 to dominate the East series. Despite racing most of the season with a broken wrist, Barcia finished on every podium, including taking three wins to clinch his first-ever Supercross title.
