About Sammy

At 5'4", the XG Austin 2015 silver medalist is one of the smallest riders on the AMA Grand National circuit, yet he has the biggest personality. Outspoken and with no filter, Halbert is also very aggressive on the track, a style that earned him the nickname "Slammin' Sammy." He embraces and owns the moniker. In 2009, at only 22, he became one of the youngest GNC1 champions in AMA history. In Aug. 2015, Sammy's older brother, Jethro, also a flat track racer, succumb to injuries sustained at a race in Sept. 2014. He was 29. Sammy wears Jethro's racing number, 69, to honor him.
