Josh Herrin - 2016 Yamaha Wall of Champions Inductee

They say you can’t keep a good man down, and Josh Herrin has proven it with a triumphant return to the U.S. road racing scene. After winning the 2013 AMA Pro SuperBike Championship on his Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha YZF-R1, he embarked on an international journey in the Moto2 World Championship. MotoAmerica rules place Superstock and Superbike equipment on the track at the same time. While Josh’s Superstock bike doesn’t allow some of the performance advantages of a MotoAmerica Superbike, he proved he still has elite-level speed by mixing it up with the faster machines. At VIRginia International Raceway, he led several laps outright against the Superbikes and, at the end of the year, he was the fifth-highest ranked rider overall, behind only four factory Superbikes—an amazing accomplishment on a mostly bone-stock Superstock 1000 machine.

Cameron Beaubier - 2016 Yamaha Wall of Champions Inductee

It’s said that winning a title is one thing, but defending it is quite another—and Cameron Beaubier learned that lesson this year. The 23-year-old Californian took his second-straight MotoAmerica Superbike Championship on his Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha Factory Racing YZF-R1, but even with his considerable talent, great equipment, and a topnotch team, Cameron had to fight back through adversity to win the Championship again. So just add another adjective to his bio: tenacity.
