WHO ARE THE ORGANIZERS BEHIND THE JUMP CHAMPS?

Sean Kepler

Sean Kepler

Founder of The Jump Champs

Sean has been at the leading edge of the most innovative companies in off road, working as a technical sales-shock support specialist at King Racing Shocks, followed by developing the first race shock program at Icon Vehicle Dynamics where he co-piloted a Class 5 car to the BITD championship. That same year as crew chief for the #11 Lucas Oil Regional Mini Stock, delivered another championship in short course. Experience behind the wheel, under the truck, or in front of the dyno; Sean has proven to be an integral asset to any program he is involved with.

At age 21, Sean began his 4 wheeled racing career in local and regional desert series. The years of seat time both behind handlebars or a steering wheel put him at the front of the pack in his first year of racing. Although winning was the always the dream, finishing was the goal and slowly but surely he refined his race-craft and began inching towards the front. By 2007 he was being given the wheels for a Class 12 and Class 1 team and drove a 150 mile stint at the Baja 1000. He safely handed off the car and helped the team get a finish at one of the longest Baja 1000 races to ever take place.
