Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing Team
With competitive machines in the hands of talented racers like Bob Hannah, Broc Glover, Jeremy McGrath, Doug Henry, Chad Reed and James Stewart, Yamaha has long enjoyed a winning tradition. While all have put their names in the record books, new seasons bring on both familiar and fresh faces who strive to place their name in the unique group of champions!
Racing is a proven channel for marketing brands, gaining exposure and developing new products and services. Team partners who share our passion for racing are a vital component in today’s racing environment, and Yamaha values these relationships. In 2016, the successful partnership between Monster Energy and Yamaha Factory Road Racing was extended to Supercross and Motocross when Monster Energy became the title sponsor of the Yamaha Factory Racing Supercross/Motocross team.
Monster Energy’s continued involvement has grown to a world level with the expansion of their partnerships with the Yamaha Factory MotoGP and Yamaha Factory Motocross Teams. This winning alliance will continueto showcase the iconic Monster Energy ”M” in the liveries of the team machines.
In 2020, Justin Barcia and Aaron Plessinger will return to campaign on the Monster Energy/Yamaha Factory Racing backed YZ450F. Both riders are healthy and have made substantial progress with extensive pre-season testing on the new YZ450F. With a solid team and inspired partners like Monster Energy, 2020 is destined to be a remarkable championship season!
