Star Racing/Lucas Oil/Yamaha signs Australia’s Jake Moss for 2008 AMA Lites Supercross/Outdoor series

With the unfortunate circumstances of Dusty Klatt and the team making a mutual decision to part ways for the remainder of the season, an opportunity arose of getting Jake Moss’s #903 services beginning this season. Star Racing arranged a test and really took a liking to the newly crowned Australian Lites Motocross champion. With his remarkable skills on a motorcycle, and a personality with endless amounts of drive we felt it would be a good fit in our program to bring Moss here full time in 2008. In return, bringing Jake to the states fulfills a goal of racing in America for him and once again Star Racing is able to take a talented rider and make him successful. Jake will began adapting to who his sweet new ride as of early next week and plans on making his debut at the Steel City MX National.

When interviewed, Moss said these were the keys to his decision. “Star was interested from the start and I appreciate that. Then once I tested the bikes, they were strong and the suspension was good, plus I have been riding Yamaha’s for a while in Australia. On top all that I got along great with the guys I met on the team and saw how hard they worked, and those two things are real important to me. I am looking forward to learning and racing in America, and also working hard with the team to continually develop the bike.”
