Last season, Cameron Beaubier showed the heart of a true champion, making a spectacular late season charge to secure his fourth MotoAmerica Superbike Championship at the series finale at Barber Motorsports Park.
Beaubier joined the Yamaha Factory team in 2012 and scored seven wins in the premier 600cc class. He followed that up in 2013 with his first title in the pro ranks, taking the Daytona SportBike crown in dominant fashion with 12 out of 13 wins, including the prestigious Daytona 200 aboard the Yamaha R6.
In 2014, he was promoted to the Superbike class and finished third in the championship with three victories and seven podiums. Coinciding with the newly rebranded U.S. road racing series –MotoAmerica –his second season with the team turned out to be a breakout year for Beaubier. He instantly gelled with the all-new 2015 Yamaha R1 and went on to win eight races and made a total of 17 podium appearances en route to his first Superbike Championship.
Beaubier was able to repeat his success in 2016 with another eight wins and 13 podiums to secure back-to-back titles in the premier class. Unfortunately for the defending champ, his reign was interrupted in 2017 with a shoulder injury that sidelined him late in the season. In 2018, the Californian came back with a vengeance. He was able to reclaim the crown for himself and the Yamaha Factory team with eight wins and 17 podiums.
Heading into 2020, the 27-year-old is tied with his former teammate Josh Hayes for second on the all-time National Superbike Championship list and looks to keep the number-one plates coming with the Monster Energy Attack Performance Yamaha Racing team.
