Team SRT racing the 2017 TKO; Six riders gunning for the podium

The SRT Off Road team (@srtoffroad) includes over twenty riders competing in the top off-road racing series in the US. The team has become a force to be reckoned with as many of those riders are taking wins and competing for championships. For the 2017 Tennessee Knockout, team SRT will have six riders competing with five of those riders pre-qualified for the Sunday program.

Kyle Redmond (kyleredmond777), Cory Graffunder (@corygraffunder), Wally Palmer (@wildwallypalmer), Ron Commo III (commo3), Mark Heresco Jr (heresco24) and team owner Craig Thompson (@srtoffroad) will all be riders to watch at the 2017 Kenda Tennessee Knockout.

Redmond finished a career best third at the 2016 TKO to join Cody Webb and Wade Young on the podium. He has joined team SRT for 2017 and will be aiming for another podium finish.

Cory Graffunder

Cory Graffunder is now in his third season with SRT and has been a top finisher in Extreme off-road races for years now. He will be looking for his first TKO podium finish.

Wild Wally Palmer

Wild Wally Palmer is a fan favorite that is capable of top results but seems to favor impressing fans with creative lines over results.

Ron Commo III

Ron Commo III is a former top trials rider that has transitioned to off-road racing and will look to put those skills to use at the Trials Training Center.

Mark Heresco

Mark Heresco Jr. excels at tough off-road events and will be aiming to qualify for the fifteen rider main event.

Craig Thompson

Craig Thompson will be competing during the Saturday amateur competition in the 40 plus Vet class with the goal of qualifying for the Sunday competition. You have to love a company owner that is out there testing products himself in the most extreme conditions and then helping to get some of the top riders to the races to test and showcase SRT products.

SRT Off-Road Team at 2016 TKO

Graffunder has been a top finisher at the TKO before and Steward Baylor is a former National Enduro Champion who is capable of a top result in the tough Tennessee terrain. Buttrick is a solid competitor that has had a resurgence of speed since joining the SRT KTM team in 2016 and Wild Wally Palmer is always a crowd favorite due to his go for broke riding style. McGinnis is lesser known but has done well at tough events in the past.
