Up-and-comer Declan Bender is one of an impressive crop of young guns to join the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles ranks in 2023. Hailing from Cooksville, Illinois, he started racing at the age of six and proved himself as a frontrunner over the next decade, earning 14 amateur championships, including 10 AMA Flat Track Grand Championships, three Xtreem Flat Track titles and five AMA District 17 titles. In 2022, he was one of the leading contenders for the Nicky Hayden Horizon award but suffered bad luck with multiple mechanicals that took him out of contention. Over the final two years of his amateur career, he scored 62 wins and 81 podiums. In his first Progressive AFT event, Bender immediately proved he belonged, qualifying 7th overall for the 2023 opener. In his off time, Declan enjoys tuning his bikes and training motocross and bicycling.
