The Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team was founded by Coy Gibbs, son of NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame Head Coach Joe Gibbs, who has won three Super Bowls, three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championships and four NASCAR Nationwide Series Championships. The team debuted Jan. 5, 2008 in Anaheim, CA., at the opening round of the AMA Supercross Championship. For 2015 Justin Barcia and Weston Peick will comprise the primary Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team, with Phillip Nicoletti racing the AMA Motocross Championship Series and substituting for either Barcia or Peick if necessary during the AMA Supercross Championship Series. Barcia has had an illustrious amateur and pro career. As an amateur Barcia claims 25 major titles, including four at the prestigious AMA National Amateur Championship at Loretta Lynn’s ranch in Tennessee. Barcia is a two time 250SX East champion, the 2012 Monster Energy Cup champion, and a frequent visitor to the podium in both supercross and motocross. Internationally he has won the Genoa Supercross in Italy, two King of Bercy titles in Paris, France, and was on the overall podium with Team USA in the Motocross of Nations in 2012. Weston Peick is arguably one of the hardest working riders in the sport today. Peick’s story is one of determination and perseverance. Riding since the age of four, and racing since he was 15, Peick earned seven amateur titles before turning professional in 2009, without factory support. Riding as a privateer he placed ninth overall in his first professional race in the premier class at Glen Helen Raceway May 23, 2009. He was the top privateer in the 2014 AMA Supercross Championship Series and finished seventh in the AMA Motocross Championship Series riding with the RCH Suzuki Team. The 2015 effort will once again be led by Jeremy Albrecht, the team manager since the inception of the program. Prior to becoming the Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team manager Albrecht was one of the most successful tuners in the history of the sport, earning 11 major titles with multiple riders. Albrecht is looking forward to a successful 2015 racing season.
