More about Purvines Racing:
Ron Purvines began Purvines Racing because he wanted to help the sport of off-road motorcycle racing during an economically difficult time. At the time, off-road racing was lacking support and financial backing causing talented riders to leave the sport. Ron started Purvines Racing to help those riders continue to race by giving financial support and offer 30-years of off-road racing experience. Purvines Racing was Ron’s way of giving back to the sport that he loves so much. Ron recently retired from racing after 30-years due to a back injury and is no longer able to race. He raced along side his son Jeremy for over 13 years. Purvines Racing thus serves as a way to continue racing with Jeremy as well.
