Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing 450 Team
Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA (YMUS), is pleased to announce a three-year partnership with the Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing team to field their campaign in both the 450 and 250 classes of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships.
Founded in 1999 by entrepreneur Bobby Reagan, Star Racing built a reputation as one of the top privateer teams in the sport of Supercross and Motocross. In 2005, that reputation ultimately secured the support of Factory Yamaha.
As a long-time partner in the 250 support class and amateur ranks, the Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing team has had a history of success with 11 titles in the professional championships and multiple Amateur National titles. The team will now add the 450 premier class to its tent to provide a consistent program for riders advancing through the SX/MX racing ranks. Together, Star and Yamaha will continue to work towards the goal of winning championships. Along with key sponsorship from Monster Energy, the team will receive full support from Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA.
The 2018 250SX West Champion, Aaron Plessinger returns to the Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing team alongside premier class rookie Dylan Ferrandis. The Frenchman is fresh off a stellar season with the 250 team, securing back-to-back 250SX West titles and the Pro Motocross 250MX championship. Joining them for a three-pronged threat in the highly competitive Pro Motocross 450MX class is Christian Craig who moves over from the 250 squad for the outdoors.
