Josh Herrin Signs with Yamaha and Graves Motorsports through 2012 Season


Cypress California, October 5, 2010…Yamaha Motor Corporation U.S.A. and Graves Motorsports are pleased to announce that  Josh Herrin has signed an agreement which will keep him with the team for the 2011 and 2012 racing seasons.

The 20 year old Herrin has just completed his fourth season on the Graves Motorsports prepared R6 and finished a very close third in the final AMA Daytona Sportbike Class Series Championship. Starting off the season with his win in The Daytona 200, arguably the most prestigious on the Tour, Josh went on to score five victories in the 2010 season. With his wins at Fontana, Road America, Mid Ohio and Virginia International Raceway, Josh and his R6 battled for the Championship all season long in one of the most hotly contested title fights in recent years,

“Josh is a tremendous talent and during his four years with us his results have just continued to get better and better,” said Keith McCarty “It's unfortunate that he just missed the Championship this year but that extra experience will only work in his favor and we're delighted to have him back on the Team.”

“I am very excited to have signed another 2 years with Yamaha and Graves Motorsports” said Josh. “It's my goal to win the Daytona Sportbike Championship and after coming so close two years in a row I am more determined than ever. I would like to thank Keith McCarty and everyone at Yamaha as well as Chuck Graves for believing in me and giving me another shot at the title. My Yamaha R6 is a proven winner and I know it will help me tremendously in my fight. I am looking forward to returning to Daytona next spring to defend my win there and begin the 2011 season.”
