Former World Superbike star Ben Bostrom will line up with Josh Hayes to spearhead Yamaha's assault on the 2009 AMA Superbike Championship.

Ben Bostrom will compete on the all new cross plane crankshaft YZF-R1 prepared by Yamaha Factory Racing in the American Superbike class. Bostrom is a past AMA Superbike Champion and returns to the class after a re-birth and break out season in 2008, which saw him win six races on the way to the Supersport title.

Joining Bostrom on the YZF-R1 is multi-time Formula Extreme Champion Josh Hayes. Hayes brings a wealth of experience to the American Superbike class and was one of the few riders who challenged Ben last year in the Supersport Championship battle. Her also had three successful outings in World Supersport with the Parkalgar Honda team.


“We are excited to announce our team for 2009” said Yamaha Racing Division Manager Keith McCarty, “and quite confident that our riders, staff and sponsors will allow us to achieve our goals for the 2009 season.”

Team Yamaha will make its 2009 AMA race debut in both the American Superbike and Daytona Sportbike classes at the opening round at Daytona International Speedway in March.
