New Web Series Follows AMA Racer
Fans of AMA Pro Road Racing will get a behind-the-scenes look at
motorsports with the
premiere of "Following Fillmore," a web series aimed at providing a
glimpse into the series. Director Limore Shur spent time trailing
professional riders to get a feel for their lives on and off the
track, and the results will be aired in the online episodes.
The star of the show is 25-year-old Chris Fillmore, a current KTM rider in the Superbike series who is an AMA Supermoto Champion and a Vance and Hines XR1200 Champion. Ultimate Motorcycling reports he has been a professional rider since the age of 16 and was the youngest racer to ever compete in the AMA Supermoto series.
In addition to Fillmore, viewers will get to see familiar faces like Josh Hayes, Taylor Knapp and Cal Crutchlow. However, fans may be more intrigued by the prospect of getting a look at the people behind the factory teams - managers, coaches, family members and more - as the series follows them in their day-to-day lives around the track.
The show begins airing on YouTube March 7, so motorsports enthusiasts can get ready for a sneak peek into one of the most competitive series in racing.
