Australian exports Levi and Will Campbell have signed with Fire Power Honda for 2022, set to continue racing in the US under the newly-formed amateur program.

Both Campbells have been racing and training in America since 2016, working with Colleen Millsaps and Bryan Johnson during their stint in America.

The pair’s focus will be on the Supercross Futures, Lorretta Lynn’s and the Mini Os this season, both motivated for the year ahead and the opportunity to work with team manager Martin Davalos and being based out of the Millsaps Training Facility (MTF).

“When Yarrive spoke to my parents, I was super-excited,” 15-year-old Will Campbell said. “The success he has achieved with other juniors in Australia is unreal. He has also trained at MTF and it’s cool to have someone that understands what it takes, plus the team manager Martin is one of the best riders and I think I can learn a lot from him also.”

Levi Campbell, the older of the two brothers, added: “The success Yarrive has achieved in America in two short years is awesome. His team has top-five finishes in the 250 pro class and has been on the podium in the 450 class.”

Konsky has achieved credible results with his professional outfit in the US since its inception, notably claiming a 450SX podium with Justin Brayton in Houston last season. The year marks the first time the team will run an amateur program.
