Bronson Pearce, a 16-year-old junior at Highland High, races in the Sttars Super TT American Race Series. Pearce was leading the 450cc premier class going into the ninth and final round at Perris on Nov. 18, but as he was entering the track for a heat race he crashed on loose gravel on the pavement, and suffered a broken wrist. However, he had the wrist wrapped, which enabled him to enter the main event and give him enough points to win the series championship. Pearce has been racing since age 4.
