Shoemaker is a second generation rider but the first racer in his family. When he's not going for AMA Grand National podium finishes he can be found installing and repairing HVAC systems in western Pennsylvania. After two podium finishes in 2014, his best finish in 2015 was an eighth. The 2013 AMA Rookie of the Year is also a father. His daughter Mya (Oct. 2013) is a toddler. Shoemaker will ride a Triumph Bonneville 995 at X Games and says the heavier bike is tough to turn and stop on shorter tracks like the one he will see in Austin.
