MotoSport.com / Meen Yamaha team off to a good start for the 2014 AMA Pro Racing Season

Morgan Hill, CA (March 18, 2014) – 2013 AMA GoPro Daytona Sportbike Rookie of the Year, Jake Lewis, kicked off the 2014 AMA Pro Road Racing season with a third place finish in the 73rd annual Daytona 200. Lewis, and rookie teammate Tucker Lancaster, started the weekend strong with Lewis qualifying his 2014 Yamaha YZF R6 on the front row in third position, while Lancaster put his bike twenty-seventh on the grid despite a minor get off.

During the 200 mile race, Lewis kept a steady pace, running consistent times on his MotoSport.com Meen Yamaha. Completing the 57 lap race, Lewis captured third place after an exceptionally well final pit stop by his Meen Motorsports crew, leaving Daytona second in championship points.

“I had a few problems during the first stint of the race so I could not run the pace I would have liked to with the riders at the front, but there is nothing to be disappointed about being in the victory circle after 200 miles, 57 laps,” states Lewis.

Coming off a difficult qualifying, due to limited seat time, Daytona Sportbike rookie Tucker Lancaster was unable to finish the race due to a mechanical. The young Daytona Sportbike rookie, out of Lincoln, California, now sets his sights on running with the front of the pack at the next AMA round in Road America.

“It definitely was not my best weekend given my small crash in qualifying and the DNF in the Daytona 200, but I learned a lot in my first AMA Pro race and I cannot wait to see what we can do on my MotoSport.com Meen Yamaha in Road America. I can’t thank the team enough for working so hard this weekend,” says Lancaster.

In Supersport, #146 Andre Ochs started the weekend off qualifying his MotoSport.com Meen Yamaha in seventh position. In race one Ochs ran with the lead group, finishing overall in tenth place, setting the fastest trap speed of 183 mph. After making some minor adjustments the Meen Team rider was in place for a good position in race two, yet due to a technical error, the 17 year old rider, out of Temecula California, had to start on the back of the grid in thirty-seventh position. Overcoming the challenge, Ochs set his weekend personal best time of 1.53.0, the second fastest lap of the race, finishing eighteenth.

“I had a great first weekend with my new Meen Motorsports crew. We all worked really hard and will keep on making improvements to get better with each race. I look forward to coming back even stronger at the next round in Road America,” comments Ochs.

“Our entire team worked very hard coming into this race, especially the riders, and I am happy that the MotoSport.com Meen Yamaha made it to the Winner’s Circle with Jake. It was quite unfortunate what happened to Tucker, yet it is Daytona and mechanicals are always a potential issue given the unusual wear and tear circumstances. I know in Road America he will have a better opportunity at showcasing his natural talent. I was very pleased with our Supersport rider Andre, who showed us he has the speed to run with the front. With some more seat time I am confident he will put the Yamaha R6 on the podium,” states Meen Motorsports team owner Ameen Sajjadi.

Meen Motorsports’ Wyatt Farris takes two podiums at Miller Motorsports Park

Campbell, Ca (August 6, 2013) – Meen Motorsports’ rider Wyatt Farris captured his first and consecutive AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport podiums at Miller Motorsports Park in Toole, Utah, during the sixth installment of the AMA Pro Road Racing season.

Consistently improving his qualifying position every race weekend thus far, Farris made progress once again having a sixth place start on the grid. Contending both days with the top of AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport class, Farris swapped positions with California Superbike School Roadracingworld.com’s Joe Roberts and RoadRace Factory/Red Bull’s Tomas Puerta for some great battles.

“I am very happy how this weekend went. We had a good pace from the beginning and I think it showed. It was overall great to get on the box in both races, giving my team and sponsors some great results after all their hard work and support this season. I will be taking this momentum to New Jersey and look forward to ending the year on a high note,” comments Farris.

In the AMA Pro Go Pro Daytona Sportbike class, Meen Motorsports’ rider Jake Lewis started the weekend with his best qualifying of the season, gridding third in the front row. Challenging Yamaha Extended Service/Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha’s Cameron Beaubier and Garrett Gerloff, as well as RoadRace Factory/Red Bull’s JD Beach, Lewis was able to keep up to speed with the trio, taking home two solid fourth place finishes.

“This past weekend was one of best weekends for me and my team this year, despite barley not getting on the box. It felt right running with the front group in both races and learned a lot. We are making good progress and we will definitely build on this weekend into New Jersey,” states Lewis.

Meen Motorsports debuts new livery at Laguna Seca

Campbell, Ca (July 26, 2013) – Meen Motorsports’ rider Jake Lewis debuted a new look at round five of the Geico AMA Pro Road Racing season held at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway. Working closely with sponsor Dr. Maury Harwood, of South Valley Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, Lewis showcased his new livery and custom Cortech leathers, highlighting the San Francisco Bay Area doctor who has been medically assisting numerous AMA Pro Road racers this season.

Jake Lewis started the AMA Pro GoPro Daytona Sportbike weekend by putting his southvalleyortho.com/Meen Motorsports Yamaha R6 in the 5th qualifying position. Early on in the race, Lewis ran in the third spot, later settling into a fourth place battle with Latus Motors Racing Triumph rider Jason DiSalvo and RoadRace Factory/ Red Bull JD Beach. A red flag re-start, which unfortunately shortened the remaining race to five laps, created a challenging scuffle to get to the lead pack, landing Lewis in a 6th place finish.

“This weekend wasn’t what the team and I had expected. The red flag really hurt us because I got a bad re-start and then the front group pulled away from me. Once again I had a good pace throughout the weekend, but all the pieces just didn’t fall together. I am now looking forward to a short time off and will keep on working towards Miller,” states Lewis.

Jon Block Group Sports/Meen Motorsports rider Wyatt Farris earned his best AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport qualifying of the season at Laguna Seca. Enduring foggy morning conditions and a minor get-off, Farris started seventh on the grid. Consistently improving his lap times throughout the race, Farris took home a solid 7th place finish.
