Supercross - Yamalube / Star Racing / Yamaha Team

Star Racing was founded in 1999 by Bobby Regan to compete in the AMA Supercross and Motocross Championships as a full privateer effort, and in 2003, the team won the Supercross Privateer of the Year Award. Building off that success, Star Racing became an official Yamaha bLU cRU support team in 2005 and is now one of the most sought after teams for top contenders and young riders looking to advance their careers.

Star Racing won its first title in 2014, and Cooper Webb claimed the 2015 AMA 250SX West Championship. In 2016, Cooper won both the AMA 250SX West Championship and the AMA 250MX Championship, while Aaron Plessinger finished second in the 250SX East Championship. 

The Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha riders for 2017 include 2016 250SX East Championship runner-up and Indianapolis 250SX winner Aaron Plessinger (#23), along with Colt Nichols (#39), Mitchell Harrison (#45), Dylan Ferrandis (#108), and 2015 Australian Supercross Champion Daniel Reardon (#122). All five riders are aboard Yamaha YZ250F machines in 250SX.
