Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha Team:
Four AMA Pro SuperBike Championships. Thatís an impressive record of success for the Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha team and a testament to the utter domination of the Yamaha YZF-R1 SuperBike.
Last year, in only his second year as a SuperBike rider, Josh Herrin won his first professional road racing championship. Josh will be the first to tell you that it was far from easy, especially when his stiffest competition came from right within his own team, in the form of three-time SuperBike Champ Josh Hayes. The Championship came down to the final race of the year, and Herrin beat Hayes by just 15 points to claim the title.
While in 2014, Herrin will fulfill his lifelong dream of racing in the MotoGP World Championship, starting with the Moto2 class, Hayes is ready and determined to win back the SuperBike title that narrowly escaped him last year. And, again like last year, his toughest competition will undoubtedly come from his own teammate.
For 2014, Hayes is joined by last yearís Daytona SportBike Champion Cameron Beaubier. Cameronís utter dominance of the DSB class will certainly be put to the test in this, his rookie SuperBike season. In order to take the title, heíll have to beat the all-powerful and all-conquering Josh Hayes.
Without question, Yamaha Extended Service/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha is the dominant race team competing in the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike class.
Last year, Cameron Beaubier piloted his #6 Yamaha R6 to 12 out of 13 race wins on the way to becoming the 2013 Daytona SportBike Champion. Meanwhile, Cameronís teammate Garrett Gerloff fi nished a strong third in the championship with 11 top-fives that included five second-place finishes.
With Cameron joining Monster Energy/Graves/ Yamaha this season as a teammate to Josh Hayes on the SuperBike team, Garrett becomes the incumbent rider with the longest tenure on the team, and he, once again, is piloting the #8 R6. Joining Garrett this season is JD Beach, a young, but very seasoned road racing veteran who has already had a lot of success racing the Yamaha R6 in previous years. JD inherits the #6 R6 from his good friend Cameron.
Garrett and JD make a formidable team, so look for them racing neck-and-neck at the front of the pack all season long as they push each other to victory and, hopefully, a second consecutive championship for the Y.E.S./Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha Daytona SportBike team.
