Background

It all started with a trip to the Houston Supercross, and Jay was hooked on motorcycles. From his humble beginnings in motocross at the age of 5, to his current road racing career, 16 year old Texas native Jay Newton has always had his sights set for greatness. From the time he began riding at age 5, he showed much promise as a racer, and he quickly made his way onto the local, regional, state and national motocross scene. Quite an accomplished rider, he was a regular on the dirt until age 10, at which time he decided he wanted to try something different. He found his new calling, and it was motorcycle road racing. Already having 4 ½ years of riding experience helped him with the transition to the pavement and it simply seemed to click for Jay. He was what many would call, a natural, and immediately started making frequent appearances on the podium beginning in 2009.
After attending two MotoGP races at Laguna Seca as a guest of friend, Colin Edwards, Jay was even more determined to become a fixture in the road racing community. It has been a very quick 5 years for Jay, as he has progressed at an incredible rate. He has challenged himself every year and set his goals extremely high each season, but he has continually met or exceeded every expectation. Making his way from the mini classes to the big bikes was not an easy task for Jay, but he has made it appear effortless with his smooth, seamless, intelligent and controlled riding.
