TV Associate Producer/Field Producer Trey Beckwith started working in the MotoAmerica Championship in 2015 when the series was airing on beIN Sports. Prior to that, Beckwith’s only experience with motorcycle racing was what he’d seen on TV, most of which was MotoGP. Now an expert on the series, Beckwith will start his 10th season of working in the TV truck for LDM Worldwide, helping produce MotoAmerica’s TV programming.
What was your introduction to the motorcycle world?
Randomly catching a MotoGP race on TV one Saturday morning when I was still in high school.
What led to you being a motorcycle racing TV producer?
A mentor of mine (Dan Parisi) sparked my interest and gave me a chance to work in this space and the rest is history.
What part of the job do you enjoy the most?
This is a two-fold answer. The first is that I love the cast of characters that we see every weekend in the paddock and the second is that I love the stories that unfold in front of us every race weekend. Some are predictable while others materialize in the moment.
What part of the job is the most difficult?
Chasing down riders for on-camera interviews when we have a small window to get them done. Riders are quick off the track as well and they disappear in fractions of a second.
What do you like to do when you’re not at the racetrack?
I enjoy kicking it with the family or cut’n up with my boys.
