Jake Lewis on the verge of capturing 2014 Roadracing World Young Gun Award

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Aug. 15, 2014) – The $2,500 Roadracing World Young Gun Award will go to the eligible rider in either AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike or AMA Pro SuperSport who earns the most overall points and was no older than 18 years old at the start of the 2014 AMA Pro Road Racing season.

Jake Lewis, aboard his MotoSport.com/Meen Yamaha YZF-R6, has put together a tremendous season in GoPro Daytona SportBike competition and has all but locked up the coveted Roadracing World Young Gun Award this season.

low res lead

Lewis’s 182 points are 54 points higher than the next closest contestant, Kaleb De Keyrel, who has accumulated 144 points in SuperSport and four points in GoPro Daytona SportBike. The only way for De Keyrel to catch Lewis with one round remaining would be to win both SuperSport races next month when the series heads to New Jersey Motorsports Park, and have Lewis somehow not finish either race.

In other words, the coveted $2,500 award that Roadracing World has so graciously offered up as a prize for the up-and-coming stars of the sport, will be in the hands of Lewis at the season’s conclusion next month, and deservingly so. The Princeton, Ky. native has had by far the best season of his young, yet promising career, as he currently sits second in the overall GoPro Daytona SportBike point standings, just seven behind Jake Gagne.

“It means a lot to be in such good position to win this award,” said Lewis. “To be one of the youngest riders in the sport and have the opportunity to achieve something like this is huge for me and my team. I won Rookie of the Year last year and got my first win this season so I’m happy about that. It’s also very generous of Roadracing World to offer the $2,500 that they have, to the winner.”

If his lead holds true, Lewis will officially claim the 2014 Roadracing World Young Gun Award at AMA Pro Road Racing’s awards banquet set to be held Monday afternoon, Sept. 15 at NJMP following the Kawasaki Devil’s Showdown scheduled to run on Sept. 13-14.

The Young Gun Of The Year Award is based on Roadracing World magazine’s 18 consecutive years of recognizing the best young road racers in North America. The 2014 version of the annual feature was published in the April issue and recognized 32 riders – 12 of them AMA Pro riders.

“We’re happy to work with AMA Pro Racing to name the 2014 Roadracing World Young Gun Of The Year,” said Roadracing World founder John Ulrich. “For almost two decades we have recognized the top up-and-coming road racers in the country in our annual Roadracing World Young Guns feature. Many of our Young Guns have gone on to professional racing careers, and this award is a great way to acknowledge their aspirations and accomplishments.”

Morgan Hill, CA (July 22, 2014) Meen Motorsports endured through difficult conditions at Mid Ohio Sports car course. Yet Jake Lewis, coming fresh off of his first ever Daytona Sportbike victory at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, carried some momentum into the second to last round of the AMA Championship, capturing another first place podium finish.

Due to the rain, making dangerous track conditions, the AMA paddock was limited to only a few laps on Saturday, leaving the Meen Motorsports riders with little or no seat time. Rescheduling the weekend, each class was then programed for a two race sequence on Sunday. For race one the riders took to the track for a forty minute warm up followed by a grid and go style, shortened 14 lap race. All riders gridded by their points standing.

Running second in the Daytona Sportbike championship, Lewis was gridded on the front row for race one, alongside Danny Eslick and Jake Gange. Lewis rode his Yamaha YZF R6 first into the starting corner, immediately pulling a gap with current championship leader, Jake Gange. An exciting battle for first continued throughout the whole race until the #85 rider from Princeton Kentucky made a calculated pass on the last lap. With only a few corners to the finish line, Lewis captured his second and consecutive win in the competitive Daytona Sportbike class for the MotoSport.Com Meen Yamaha team.

Going into race two, for the Sunday double header, Lewis was tied in points for the lead in the championship. Shortly after the start of the race, a red flag restart led Lewis to once again battle for the lead spot. Lewis ended up finishing fourth, placing him second in Daytona Sportbike points and in prime position to contest the championship at the last AMA Pro Road Racing weekend in New Jersey.

Lewis says, “This weekend provided great racing and I had a lot of fun doing two races in one day. I was able to make a last lap pass for the win in race one after a long battle. In race two I had a small issue but was able to manage a fourth and get some valuable points. Overall I’m happy to come out of Ohio with good results being not one of my favorite tracks. Now I will work hard over the break and come ready to fight for the Championship in New Jersey for my MotoSport.com/ Meen Yamaha team. ”

Rookie Daytona Sportbike rider Tucker Lancaster had his own list of challenges to overcome in Ohio. With limited seat time on a new track, he learned quickly and finished 17th in race one and 16th in race two. Lancaster goes into the last round second in the running for rookie of the year at a track he has a little more experience at.

Lancaster says, “Overall I feel like I had a good weekend at Mid-Ohio. Although we didn’t get the results, I felt like it was one of my best weekends of the year. With the limited track time it was tough to learn the track but I was fortunate to have Jason Pridmore there helping me out and I was up to speed by race time. I am training hard for New Jersey and hoping for a good end to the season.”

“It was a difficult weekend for all of us here at Mid-Ohio, fans and teams together. Sunday was jam packed with action and showed to have some of its own issues, but overall we are very happy with the results and are now going into the last round with Jake 7 points out of the championship. Tucker also rode well, considering he had to figure out the track and setup the bike with practically no track time,” says Meen Motorsports team owner, Ameen Sajjadi.

The Meen Team’s Superbike rider from Spain, Bernat Martinez, also had to learn the new track with limited seat time. Yet over coming these obstacles, while still getting accustomed to his new bike and team, Bernat rode his Proto-Tech /Blumac Yamaha R1 to a 13th place finish in race one and 11th in race two, improving his times drastically every time out on the track.

“Bernat has demonstrated he can learn new tracks fairly quickly, however this weekend we had unfortunately even less time to ride then most weekends. We are looking forward to the break and getting some much needed testing with the team,” comments Sajjadi.

MotoSport.Com Meen Yamaha Sportbike rider Jake Lewis started eighth on the grid. In race one Lewis battled with the front pack, swapping places with Yamaha Extended Service Monster Energy Graves rider Garret Gerloff and Yamalube rider Dane Westby, making a three lap red flag restart a memorable race.

In race two Lewis was off to a great start from the third row, leading portions of the first lap when Yamaha Extended Service Monster Energy Graves rider Garret Gerloff had a mechanical, causing a crash that involved Lewis.

Half a lap down, Lewis was able to finish 14th place despite restarting the race with cold tires and racing with a sticky throttle. Lewis leaves Road America third in points.

“This weekend was challenging for our team struggling with our DSB bike set-up early on during the weekend. Once we had them dialed we then ran into some bad luck in DSB race two. Overall, I am happy Jake came out of that race ok and that we leave Road America with some much needed points. I am very happy with our DSB rookie rider Tucker Lancaster, he figured out the track and dropped his times every time he put his leg over the Yamaha R6. Both our Supersport riders also worked hard this weekend, both achieving top ten finishes. I look forward to Barber,” states Meen Motorsports owner Ameen Sajjadi.

MotoSport.Com Meen Yamaha Sportbike rider Tucker Lancaster had a notable weekend.

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.

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.
