2015 Teams Unveiled for Yamaha USA Motorcycle Race

On Friday, Yamaha Motor Corporation gave a press release that announced the teams competing in the 2015 Yamaha USA competition. The winners of this race could win over $150,000 in prizes. Keith McCarty, the Motorsports Racing Division Manager for Yamaha, expects this year to be an exciting one.

“Yamaha is excited about the new MotoAmerica series,” McCarty declared in the company press release. “We’ve got a great lineup of teams and riders who will be competing.”

One of the returning motorcyclists, Josh Hayes, has been bringing a lot of buzz to the Yamaha Race. Hayes is a four-time and defending AMA SuperBike Champion and won his first SuperBike Shootout Series Pro Superbike Championship last year. With Hayes’ victory fresh on everyone’s mind, the motorcycle champion is under great pressure for the coming competition.

Also receiving the bulk of the attention is Cameron Beaubier. Beaubier won the SuperBike Shootout Championship one year before Hayes, as well as three AMA Pro SuperBike races, seven podiums. Beaubier is expected to be Hayes’ biggest competition in 2015. He and Hayes are drawing a lot of attention to the Yamaha race as the competitors battle it out for motorcycle supremacy.

The racing competition will be partnering with Monster Energy and Graves this year. Monster Energy is a brand of an extremely popular energy drink. McCarty remarks that the decision to pair up for the race this year was based on the companies’ strong strategic alignment. “Together, Monster Energy and Yamaha have shared fourAMA Pro SuperBike Championships. We’re looking forward to even greater success as we begin this renewed relationship with Monster Energy.”
