Bentley Ayden Morris “BAM” Has always been very athletic. Starting with football at the age of 4 years old where he got a reputation and also got his nickname “BAM”. Bam has always carried himself to be the best all while staying humble and respectful. Bam has been a part of many successful teams and competed in many championships. Bam’s primary team is the Odessa Seahawks and if you ask him who the best is its always gonna be the Seahawks. In February of 2022 Bam was selected to play in the Southwest All Star Showcase with the West Texas MOJO Panthers where they finished 3rd after losing to Arizona in double overtime. In the summer of 2021 Bam’s dad started riding again after almost 18 years off. His dad a former pro rider would ask Bam to go to the track and hang out and that’s when it all started. A few month later in December of 2021 Bam got his first pit bike. He quickly showed that he had a passion for the sport of motocross. So much that Bam moved up to a much faster bike in February of 2022. When Bam decided to get into motocross racing we never imagined how quickly he would master the sport. BAM was a natural from the start and has made it look way too easy. From the very beginning he has been focused and willing to do whatever it takes to be the best. For example Bam would spend hours upon hours watching training videos, only to take the things he learned and apply them on the track. He will wake up every day and ask “Are we were going to the track train today”. He understands that training is important if you want to be successful in this sport. Bam has learned early that nothing is given to you and no matter how hard it is you must dig deep and push yourself harder to get where you want to be. Bam continues to prove himself every time he gets on the track, weather its training or racing. No matter how hard things get and no matter how much it hurts he has always shown a never quit attitude. Bam and his dad have a saying “ Are you hurt or injured” If your hurt try your best to finish on your own power. If your injured then I will help you finish and we will do it together. On March 6th 2022 BAM entered his first race where he earned two top 10 finishes. Two weeks later Bam entered into his first ever Arenacross race where he competed in three classes with three top 5 finishes and winning one of them. In Bam’s 2022 rookie year he has competed in two series the Big Side Of Texas Series and the MX Kings Series and one Kicker Arenacross race. Bam has competed in a total of 30 races in 2022. During that time Bam managed to get 8 wins, 17 top 5’s, 24 top 10 finishes for the season. Bringing home 4th and 9th place in points in the Big Side Of Texas Series and two Championships in the MX King Series. Bam also competed in a few non series races the last one on September 17th 2022 were he won both the 50cc 7-8 and the 50cc open. Bam also competed in his very first 65cc race running two motos with a 2nd and 5th place finish taking 3rd overall. Its easy to say this was an outstanding rookie year for Bam. Going into this next year Bam will ride full time in the 65cc classes in both series and he also plans to enter 4 arenacross races. Bam is focused on getting faster and running for the championship in all his classes this coming year. Bam also plans to run for state and hopes to compete for the win and earn his first ever state title.
