Four-time Superbike Champion Cameron Beaubier will return with Yamaha to the Superbike class to defend his title in 2020, joined by new teammate, the 2015 MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Champion Jake Gagne. The Monster Energy Attack Performance Yamaha Racing team, owned by Richard Stanboli, will receive support from Monster Energy, Yamaha Motorcorporation USA, and Yamaha Motor Europe.
“I’m looking toward 2020. There will be some changes within our team, but we will always have the same goal. I’ve been working with my crew chief Rick Hobbs ever since I started racing in Superbike back in 2014, but he is retiring this year. We had an amazing run together, and we are on to a new chapter. I am really excited to be working with Attack Performance. The guys at Yamaha, with the addition of Richard Stanboli’s knowledge, I feel confident that they will build a weapon out of the 2020 R1.” – Cameron Beaubier
“I could not be more thrilled to go Yamaha Superbike racing. I want to extend a massive thank you to Keith (McCarty, Motorsports Racing Division Manager for YMUS), Tom (Halverson), Jim (Roach, Technical Division Manager for YMUS), and the entire Yamaha family for their belief and nonstop support. It’s a dream come true to be aboard the championship-winning machine and surrounded by such a huge amount of experience and knowledge. I’ve been fortunate to have had my most successful racing years aboard a Yamaha, so I feel like I’m back at home.” – Jake Gagne.
