Mikayla Nielsen: 6-Time Off-Road Champion in 2021


Mikayla Nielsen had another great year of off-road motorcycle racing in 2021. Mikayla earned six championship titles that included three in the National Grand Prix Championship Series and three in the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS).

Mikayla started riding dirt bikes when she was 3 ½ and began her racing career at the age of 7. In 2017, Downs Energy began sponsoring her with pricing discounts on the VP Racing Fuel that gives her the edge, by keeping her bike running at peak performance. Coming off an incredible 2019 season where she was named the American Motorcycle Association Female Athlete of the Year, we awarded Mikayla a full product sponsorship.

“Mikayla, has inspired us here at Downs Energy. This young woman has captivated audiences across America with her racing accomplishments, and we are proud to play a small role in her success.”, said Ron Skelskey, Sales Manager at Downs Energy.

2022 will be a challenging year for Mikayla as she will be competing in the 250A and Pro/AM classes at WORCS.  She will be travelling to Florida to compete in the Grand National Cross Country series along with the Texas Springs Motocross Nationals.  Along with these highly competitive events, Mikayla will also compete at the Premier National Motocross Championships at Lorretta Lynn’s Ranch in Tennessee.
