At a young age, Brian Deegan developed a passion for racing. Growing up in a small town in Nebraska, Brian wasn't into football so instead he rode dirt bikes. He soon realized he had a talent and wanted to pursue his dream. After graduating from High School, he told his father to give him one year and if it didn't work out then he would come back home and go to college. With his dreams in front of him and Nebraska in the dust he headed for California on a credit card, old truck and his dirt bike. Turning pro at age 17, Brian rode his way onto a Supercross Team. In 1997 at the LA Coliseum, Brian Deegan won the 125cc main and in true rebel fashion, ghost rode his bike across the finish line. This was the beginning of what we know today as Freestyle Motocross. Brian Deegan founded a group called the Metal Mulisha and despite numerous broken bones and almost dying 3 separate times, went on to win 10 X-Games medals! In his most recent near death experience Brian lost a kidney and severely injured his spleen while filming for MTV's Viva La Bam. Today FMX is recognized across the world as one of the premiere events in X-Games.

Whether Brian is back flipping his dirt bike 80 feet to dirt in his backyard or showing up for his next business meeting, you can be sure that Brian isn't slowing down anytime soon. Currently Brian is determined and focused on progressing his career from two-wheels to four-wheels. Although Brian still competes in X-Games, he has a vision for the future of Off Road Racing and believes there are tremendous growth opportunities within the sport. Recently Brian formed the Rockstar/Metal Mulisha/Lucas Oil team and already he has made it to the top 3 in point standings in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. You can expect to see many more wins from Brian Deegan and the Rockstar/Metal Mulisha/Lucas Oil team. This is not just another hobby for Brian; he has his sights set on dominating the sport just as he did in Freestyle Motocross.
