2015 Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha Road Race Team:
Winning an AMA Superbike Championship is a huge accomplishment for a racing team. But winning FIVE consecutive AMA Superbike Championships is the very definition of absolute dominance.
That’s exactly what Yamaha has done over the past half-decade. The Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha team continues to be the team to beat in this inaugural season of the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship. For the fourth time as a Yamaha rider, Josh Hayes is the defending Superbike Champion, and he is a strong favorite to add a fifth Superbike title to his impressive racing resume.
He faces his stiffest competition from right within his own Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha team, as his stablemate Cameron Beaubier, last year’s AMA Superbike Rookie of the Year, is poised to improve on his phenomenal first Superbike season and will be looking to add a Superbike title to the Daytona SportBike Championship that he won in dominant fashion in 2013. Both Josh and Cameron are aboard the brand-new Yamaha YZF-R1 Superbike for 2015.
Who wins the Superbike title is anyone’s guess, but chances are, it’ll be one of these highly talented teammates.
One of the most experienced and successful race teams in the MotoAmerica paddock is the Yamalube/Y.E.S./Graves/Yamaha crew and riders.
Garrett Gerloff and JD Beach are teammates once again in 2015, and no pair of professional racers has logged more seat time on the Yamaha YZF-R6 than Garrett and JD. The team welcomes Yamalube as its title sponsor for 2015, and everyone on the team is motivated to capture the MotoAmerica Supersport Championship in its inaugural year, and for their new team sponsor.
Last year, JD and Garrett finished fifth and sixth, respectively, in the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike Championship, and neither rider was even close to feeling satisfied with how their 2014 season turned out. They spent the off-season training hard, and they’re laser-focused on winning races and the Championship in 2015. With both riders on expertly prepared Yamaha R6 machines, they’ve got the best bikes to do the job. Look for Garrett’s #31 and JD’s #95 R6s out front all season long.
