Star Racing has extended its agreement with Yamaha Motor Corporation in the US, fielding YZ250Fs in the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season.

Star Yamaha will retain new 250 Class outdoor champion Jeremy Martin alongside Cooper Webb and Anthony Rodriguez, while amateur standout Aaron Plessinger will round out the four-rider squad.

“This year was simply amazing,” explained Star Racing owner Bobby Regan. “I’ve dreamt about this moment for a long time and I knew with the people we have on the team and the bikes that Yamaha provides us this was going to happen.

“I’m very excited to see what 2015 and beyond holds for our team and I couldn’t be happier to continue our awesome relationship with Yamaha.”

This year was a breakout year for the Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha team, dominating the motocross season with six from 12 overall wins between Martin and Webb.
