Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha Continues its Championship Assault
After four rounds of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series, Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha riders Jeremy Martin and Cooper Webb continue to occupy first and second places in the overall standings, a position they have enjoyed all season long. Jeremy Martin holds a commanding 36-point lead over third place.
Conditions were questionable for the UPMC High Point National in Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania, as rain prior to the event created a muddy, challenging track, but conditions improved throughout the day and made for exciting racing. Things started out well for Jeremy Martin as he won the Oakley Time Bomb award as fastest qualifier. Jeremy backed up his qualifying win with a strong second place finish in moto one, followed by Cooper in third place. After fighting his way back from a crash in moto two, Martin worked his way up to sixth place to finish second overall, making him the only rider in the 250 class to finish on the podium at every event.
The Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha Team would like to express its thanks to Keith McCarty and the crew at Yamaha Pro Racing for their continued technical assistance in putting an outstanding motorcycle on the track, as well as their support of the Star Racing amateur platform, which allows the development of outstanding young talent like Jeremy and Cooper. Thanks as well to all our sponsors that provide necessary financial and technical support. It is this commitment that will allow the Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha Team to achieve its goal of an AMA 250 National Motocross Championship, Yamaha’s first 250/Lites/125 championship since Jeff Emig’s championship in 1992.
