Yamaha extends Joe Gibbs Racing partnership and welcomes two new riders to the Family

Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA is pleased to announce the extension of our relationship with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGRMX) through a new contract that will see the successful team race YZ450Fs in both the AMA Supercross and Outdoor series for at least the next two years. On top of that, Yamaha is proud to welcome two new riders to the Yamaha JGRMX family.

After an illustrious amateur career, Justin Barcia started off his professional career with a bang, winning the AMA Rookie of the Year award in 2009. He followed that early success with two 250SX East Coast Championships. That same success followed Barcia when he moved up to the 450 Class, as he won two 450SX Supercross races in his first season and took home the 2013 AMA 450 Class Rookie of the Year award. Already a proven winner with an intensity that is unrivaled, Barcia is looking forward to the start of the 2015 Season.

“I have met everyone over at Joe Gibbs Racing and already feel like part of the family, I am excited to start riding and training for the 2015 season,” said Justin Barcia, who has been recovering from ankle surgery earlier in the season.

Joining Barcia on the Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX team is perennial underdog fan favorite Weston Peick. A long-time Yamaha rider Weston had a breakthrough season in 2014 and looks forward to carrying that momentum into the 2015 season now that he’s back on a YZ450F.

“I couldn’t be more excited to see what the future holds for the Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX team. With Barcia and Peick under the tent and the improved 2015 YZ450F at their disposal it should be a very exciting year,” said Yamaha Motor Co. Racing Division Manager, Keith McCarty.
