Mark and Leslie Nichols
Mark started riding when he was 4 years of age and started racing by 9. He is one of the few who has an equal passion for Offroad and Motocross racing. At the age of 21 he answered a call to full-time ministry. He graduated from Cincinnati Christian University in 1988 and was ordained at his home church in 1989. Mark has been in full-time ministry ever since, working in churches in Ireland, Ohio, Indiana & Kentucky. After spending 20 wonderful years as a preacher in the local church he joined Fellowship of Christian Athletes MX ministry. With FCA MX he was able to join his two great passions: Jesus and dirt bikes. For three years he worked with this great ministry starting new teams and camps. Since 2016, Mark has been working with Fuel Ministry. Fuel has allowed Mark and his team of volunteers to focus more on trackside ministry while continuing to be involved in camps. He and his wife, Leslie, love traveling the region and sharing God’s truth/love with racers and their families. Leslie is also a staff member who helps the team with administrative duties and has the role of keeping Fuel Ministry running smoothly. She is a HUGE PART of the registration process and the paperwork that goes with running summer camps. Leslie is mostly behind the scene, but loves being at the track and camps too.
