Here’s something you might not know: Joey Savatgy is originally from California. Instead of staying in the sport’s hotbed through the early part of his life, the family decided it was best to move to the other side of the country and grab a space at Millsaps Training Facility in rural Georgia, where he turned laps with other top amateur prospects for years. The South has certainly rubbed off on Savatgy, who takes pride in the fact he’s not a “SoCal bro,” and he now trains under the watchful eye of Jeanie and Ricky Carmichael at their iconic plot of land near the Florida-Georgia line.

While this is the start of Savatgy’s third year as a professional racer, it seems like he’s still a fresh face on the circuit. Blame it on the injuries that kept him out of a number of events, but don’t be totally surprised by his speed in the early part of 2015, because it’s what earned him a spot at Mitch Payton’s Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team for the East Coast Regional Championship. Why the East Coast? A gnarly internal injury just before the Anaheim opening round sent Savatgy to the sidelines for a few months, but he managed to bounce back in time for what’s been a solid start to the series.
