If you're looking for a story of sacrifice, hard-work and perseverance... look no further than at Cory and Shayna Texter. This brother-sister duo has taken the motorsports world by storm lately with their notable performances on the American Flat Track (AFT) circuit.
The AFT sport dubs itself as "America's Original Extreme Sport" and can be viewed on live-streaming and NBCSN from July till Oct. Professional flat track racing is a hyper-competitive, adrenaline-fueled American motorcycle sport featuring custom-built and production-based motorcycles reaching top speeds of 140mph on the straights and 90mph in the corners, all piloted by world-class athletes.

Both Shayna and Cory are legends in the sport these days and have built that road for themselves, overcoming adversity along the way. Shayna and Cory lost their father and race team pioneer, Randy Texter, back in 2010 and in an effort to fund Shayna's AFT career, her brother Cory took a step away from the sport to ensure Shayna's career on the track lived on. Years later, they are both on the track together, competing nation-wide, often leading the pack in every race. Both Cory and Shayna made history by qualifying for the X-Games in 2015 together, the first brother/sister combo to ever compete against each other in X-Games history. (2) Shayna Texter was the first woman to ever win a flat-track main event in 2011 and she holds the title for Winningest Female in AMA Pro Flat Track History, holding 6 GNC2 Final Titles before moving to the premier GNC1 class in 2014.
Ending the 2019 season last year, Cory goes into 2020 to defend his Crown in the AFT Production Twins class, while Shayna races in the AFT Singles Class. On July 18, both Cory and Shayna competed at the Volusia Half-Mile in Florida to kick off the 2020 AFT season, placing 1st and 2nd respectively. (3)
American Flat Track and motorsports in general offer a unique application for GuardLab mouthguards. At GuardLab, we offer both Custom-Fit and Semi-Custom Mouthguards, made specifically for the wearer's sport with varying levels of thickness. Both Shayna and Cory wear our low-profile custom-fit Pro Guards, however, they both also like to use the APEX Lite -- due to it's ease of use and overall thin comfort. In motorsports, heavy vibrations and sudden track changes can tend to cause damage to the teeth over time.
I like wearing them because I feel it’s an added way to keep me safe. Anything I can do to add a little peace of mind into my program is beneficial so I can focus all my effort on riding the motorcycle. I’m stoked to partner with GuardLab and hopefully get many more riders wearing their high quality guards." - @CoryTexter
The APEX Lite is a great option for those who would like the similar benefits of a Custom-Fit guard, at a lower-cost, and without having to take a dental impression. The APEX Bite Pattern guarantees an easy fitting process and fits closely without any bulk.
