to Privateer Profile, a new Road Racer X feature. The
purpose of this section is to give a shout-out to the
lunchbox crowd—privateers are the backbone of
American road racing—while keeping our readers
entertained. First up is Scott Carpenter, a veteran
privateer who we figured was the perfect guy to kick
off this feature. We noticed him hobbling around the
pits at the AMA Superbike finale in Virginia last weekend
and flagged him down.”

Carpenter: Professional Motorcycle Racer
"RALEIGH -- There is no fear in racing –
just respect and knowing your limits.
The focus is to control your mind and body. "We (racers) are all control freaks," says Scott
Carpenter. "When we are one with our bikes,
we are in control."
Carpenter is a professional racer – a motorcycle
roadracing veteran whose skills and abilities to maneuver
his race bike through curves, turns and around other
racers at high speeds absolutely beguile any enthusiasts.
Fast doesn't only describe a motorcycle race. Spectacular.
