About Ezra Lusk-
A highly touted amateur rider Bainbridge, Georgia’s Ezra “Yogi” Lusk burst onto the scene in 1985 with a second-place finish in the 65cc 7-11 Modified class. The Team Green rider backed it up again in 1986 with two class championships. In his seven-year amateur career, Lusk would rack up a total of four class championships and seven podium finishes.
He would make his pro debut as part of the Factory Suzuki team at the Orlando Supercross in 1992, where he would take a second-place finish. He followed that up with seven more top 10 finishes in 1992 and a fifth-place overall finish in the series.
His success would continue in 1993 with a win at the Orlando Supercross and a third-place overall finish in the series standings. 1994 would see Lusk dominate the 125 East Coast Supercross series with ten podium finishes, including five wins the 125 East Coast Supercross Series Championship.
In a professional career that spanned 13 years, Lusk would achieve podium success 80 times with 16 wins in the premier class. He is tied with David Bailey for 16th on the all-time win list. He also had six victories in the 125 Supercross Class to add to his total.
After retiring from the series in 2004, he made a brief comeback to race the US Open in 2009 and then retired from racing again.
In recent years, Lusk could be found working in the background with professional and amateur racers sharing some of the secrets of his success.
Today he still resides in Georgia with his wife Jennifer and sons Hayden and Hudson.
