The Watercraft Journal: Shante, could you give me a little back story as to how you got involved in racing?
Shante Bukes: I started by racing motorcross at first, I had a bad injury and thought its not worth having broken bones all the time. Iíve always been riding my PWC on the river with my friends and my dad gave me this excellent idea to start racing with my PWC. We got some more information about how it worked and thatís how I started racing.
