Graves Yamaha Josh Herrin Video

Following Josh Herrin’s debut AMA SuperBike title, the Graves Yamaha team created the above video recap of the final round of the series at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

It was there that Herrin’s second-place finish aboard the YZF-R1 allowed him to rob his teammate Josh Hayes of a fourth-straight AMA SBK title. Herrin only needed a top 10 finish to secure the 2013 AMA Superbike title, but he was able to give it all and finish on the podium behind Hayes and ahead of Foremost Insurance Yamaha’s Larry Pegram, which gave Yamaha a 1-2-3 at Laguna.

This was only his second year in the AMA SBK series, and for 2014-2015, Herrin will move to Moto2. Taking his place on the AMA Superbike team will be the 2013 AMA Daytona Sportbike Champion, Cameron Beaubier.

During his two years in AMA SuperBike, Herrin, whose goal is to compete in the premier MotoGP class, took more than 20 top-five finishes, and also earned the 2012 Rookie of the Year Award.

En route to the 2013 AMA SBK title, Herrin took wins in four of this year’s races, including at Daytona, Mid-Ohio, Miller Motorsports Park and New Jersey Motorsports Park.
