Cypress, CA. October 8, 2014 – Yamaha Motor
Corporation, USA is pleased to announce a multiyear extension to our
relationship with Championship-Winning Star Racing through a new
contract that will see the successful team race YZ250Fs in both the AMA
Supercross and Outdoor series.
This year was a breakout year for the Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha
team. The winning train left the station at the final Supercross round
in Las Vegas and continued to roll as the team dominated the 2014
Outdoor Nationals, taking home 6 out of a possible 12 overall wins
behind the powerhouse duo of Jeremy Martin and Cooper Webb, with Jeremy
Martin wrapping up the title with 1 race to go, bringing home Star
Racing their first AMA National championship.
Yamaha is also pleased to announce that Jeremy Martin, Cooper Webb
and Anthony Rodriguez will all be returning having signed new agreements
with Star Racing that will insure they will be racing YZ250Fs during
the 2015 season. Joining the returning riders will be amateur standout
Aaron Plessinger. Aaron’s final amateur race will be at the upcoming
Monster Energy Cup, from there he will prepare for his pro debut
sometime during the 2015 Supercross season.
“This year was simply amazing. I’ve dreamt about this moment for a
long time and I knew with the people we have on the team and the bikes
that Yamaha provides us this was going to happen. I’m very excited to
see what 2015 and beyond holds for our team and I couldn’t be happier to
continue our awesome relationship with Yamaha”, said Star Racing team
owner Bobby Regan. “I’m so proud of everyone at Star Racing. We worked
together and created a long term plan to develop riders from our Amateur
motocross program and stuck with it. The results so far couldn’t have
been any sweeter. Yamaha is very excited to see what 2015 holds with
last year’s trio of Martin, Webb, and Rodriguez returning along with new
rookie Plessinger,” said Yamaha Motor Co. Racing Division Manager,
