Star Racing has reached a two-year agreement with Yamaha Motor Corporation to represent Yamaha as its premiere Factory Lites effort starting in 2009. The 2009 Star Racing Yamaha roster will see the return of top riders Matt Lemoine and Broc Tickle along with the addition of 2008 Horizon Award Winner Darryn Durham and rookie sensation Michael Hall.
Keith McCarty Factory Yamaha Racing Manager said; "Star Racing has continued to prove to us that they have the vision and desire to put the YZ 250F on the podium and we saw a glimpse of that at the end of last season." Equally important, Star understands the Yamaha brand and consistently represents the brand in a positive and professional manner. Factory Yamaha is fully committed to see this program reach new heights in 2009 and beyond."
"We're extremely excited to extend our relationship with Yamaha and look forward to continuing to build the program into a Championship winning effort." Says Bobby Regan, Star Racing Principal and Team Manager. "We've put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this program and it feels great when your partners recognize that and reward you with the additional support needed to take it to the next level."
