Monster Energy Graves Yamaha Road Race Team

Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha Team

Four AMA Pro SuperBike Championships. That’s 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 fi rst 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 year’s Daytona SportBike Champion Cameron Beaubier. Cameron’s 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, he’ll have to beat the all-powerful and all-conquering Josh Hayes.
