2015 Yamalube / Y.E.S. / Graves / Yamaha - Garrett Gerloff
Garrett Gerloff #31
In 2014, Garrett won the three-event GEICO Motorcycle Superbike Shootout Pro Sportbike Championship with two race victories and one second-place finish aboard his #8 Yamaha Extended Service/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha R6. In addition, he had six top-five finishes in AMA Pro Daytona SportBike, finishing fifth on the season.
Competing in his first full season of Daytona SportBike competition, Garrett finished third in the 2013 Championship points standings, with 11 top-five finishes that included 5 second-place results.
2012 was Garrett’s rookie season in DSB, and it was an eventful one…for precisely the wrong reason. In the very first practice session for the very first race of the season--the Daytona 200--Garrett highsided his Yamaha R6 and suffered a fractured femur. He returned to action for the final three rounds of the 2012 season, but he competed in SuperSport instead of DSB to get himself back into racing shape. Everything came good for Garrett in the season’s final round at NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans, where he won Sunday’s race.
In 2011, Garrett raced in the WERA National Challenge Series where he qualified on pole for every 600 Superstock race, tallied 9 wins in 14 races, and was only off the podium twice, finishing the season with the 600 Superstock Expert Championship. He then made his AMA Pro Racing debut at New Jersey Motorsports Park where he learned the track quickly and won his first-ever professional race. Having an eye for talent, Chuck Graves wasted no time in signing Garrett to campaign the entire 2012 DSB series on a Y.E.S./Graves/Yamaha R6.
The 2010 season was Garrett’s first year on a 600, and he won the 600 Superbike Expert WERA National Championship. He also won the Youth Rider of the Year Award presented by the AMA Road Race Grand Championships and the AMA RRGC 600 Supersport Expert Championship.
In 2009, Garrett earned a double win at Jennings GP, which was his first victory in USGPRU competition. He was on the podium at every race weekend and, by the end of the year, he wrapped up three USGPRU National Championships and two WERA National Championships.
Garrett was raised on a motorcycle. From the time he was four years old, he was racing around all of the motocross tracks in south Texas. He got his first road racing motorcycle in 2007 and never looked back.
