2013 AMA SuperBike

Monster Graves Yamaha YZF-R1 racer Josh Herrin rode to his very first AMA Superbike victory at the opening round of the series at Daytona International Speedway.

After coming close to a win on several occasions in 2012, it only took Herrin one race in 2013 to get a well-deserved trip to the top of the podium. The Bell-sponsored rider was joined on the race-one Daytona SuperBike podium by Yoshimura Suzuki’s Martin Cardenas and Foremost Racing Yamaha’s Larry Pegram.

In race two at Daytona, Herrin finished second behind Cardneas. After one of 11 rounds, he now leads the series with 56 points, one ahead of the Columbian Cardenas.

Patrick Houlihan (Bell Sports Marketing Manager) says: “Herrin stepped up to the Superbike class last year and immediately proved that he was a serious contender, surprising a few of his competitors along the way.”

“He spent 2012 cutting his teeth in the class and getting some impressive results along the way. This year he’s ready to make a statement. The very first race of the season was his first victory and I’m confident it’s just the first of many.”
