Rick McWaters Recognized for Super Bike Championship

While some of Rick McWaters’ friends and fellow riders wondered whether he would feel pressure to back up his 2014 Wiseco/Cycle Tech Super Bike championship with another championship, they soon found out he wouldn’t.

In fact, he has remained focused on the tree and the track before him, and he has taken things one twist of the throttle at a time. As a result, he has continued to rack up round wins in the consistently competitive category.

After riding his eight-second Suzuki to a win in the spring, Rick — a former Summit Motorsports Park Sportsman of the Year — pushed past first round at the remaining points races in 2016.

Still revved up and raring to go in the fall, he earned another win at the Halloween Classic presented by Harland Sharp in October at Summit Motorsports Park.

As it turns out, that win was every bit as meaningful to him as his win in May, as it represented a stout start and enviable end to the season, and that’s something the proprietor of Cycle Tech has caught himself reminiscing about.

With seventeen points and one feature win, Rick earned the 2016 Wiseco/Cycle Tech Super Bike championship, and was recognized for his efforts during Summit Motorsports Park's 43rd Accel Banquet of Champions, Jan. 14, 2017 at Sawmill Creek Resort in Huron, Ohio.
