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, Cameron’s teammate Garrett Gerloff fi nished a strong third in the championship with 11 top-fi ves that included fi ve 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.
