Driven Mx was established in 2015 by former pro Arenacross racer Clay Elliott. After his last season racing, he wanted to stay involved with the sport and saw an opportunity to own and manage his own pro race team. 2016 and 2017 were the 2 seasons Driven Mx operated as a professional race team. The team had quick success with multiple race wins, podiums and building riders to help them achieve their personal goals. Once Feld closed the Amsoil Arenacross Series Clay moved on to work at TCD Racing and Kenda Tires expanding his experience and expertise on how suspension and tires play a huge roll in bike set up and handling. With Clay’s lifelong experience around the sport and knowledge passed down from former pros like Brock Sellards, this makes Clay and Jason your go to coaches for any level rider.
Driven Mx switched its focus to training riders in 2018 with Clay taking the solo roll and hiring one off riders to help at certain camps. In the summer of 2020 Driven Mx acquired a new partner, Jason McConnell. Jason also raced Arenacross and in his rookie season Jason finished 3rd overall in the 250 AX Lites West Coast class. This is no easy task and makes Jason an exceptional coach for how to stay mentally focused to achieve your goals. Since 2018 Jason has continued to race select Outdoor Pro Motocross races while working full-time as a hydraulic mechanic near Pittsburgh, PA. With Jason still actively racing and Clay’s wide variety of experiences within the sport Driven Mx provides riders with the tools they need to reach success.
New for 2021 Driven Mx has acquired 160 acres in Leavittsburg, Ohio. Thanks to Woodford’s Excavating, their 4 track facility with 3 different soil types gives Driven Mx the ability to provide coaching and training you need at all ages and skill levels. 20 minutes down the road is our 5th track which is our “sand track” replicating the deepest sand tracks riders will face every year. Clay and Jason are both certified and insured through the United States Motorcycle Coaching Association making the Driven Mx Training program at The Training Grounds the full package!
