Thor is proud to announce the addition of the Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha Team for the 2016 race season. The team has an incredibly talented roster including 2015 AMA 250 West Supercross Champion Cooper Webb, 2015 AMA 250 Motocross Champion Jeremy Martin, race winner Aaron Plessinger, the always consistent Alex Martin, and introducing the promising rookie Mitchell Harrison.
“Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha is aiming high for the 2016 season. We are pleased to be working with Thor and confident that our collaboration with them will lead to great success,” said team manager Brad Hoffman.
