AGVSPORT America Partners With MonkeyMoto To Field Jay Newton For 2018 CMRA Season
As part of their effort to expand their brands, AGVSPORT America and MonkeyMoto have combined efforts to campaign Jay Newton in the 2018 CMRA Championship Series. Jay was a top ten finisher in the premiere 600 Supersport class during 2016, but 2017 would see Jay make a riding discipline change to flat track, and focused on racing in American Flat Track series.
Jay tested last year for AGVSPORT America and MonkeyMoto, proving himself by coming from back of the grid starts to all top five finishes, including setting an Ultra Lightweight GP class track record during a CMRA team endurance race at Motorsport Ranch Houston. Anxious to get back on a road race bike, and already committing to AGVSPORT America for 2018, Newton was elated for the opportunity to be a full time supported rider. He will contest seven classes on three different machines for AGVSPORT America and MonkeyMoto, and be the lead and anchor rider for their endurance teams as well. The first round of competition for the 2018 CMRA season will be held February 9th -11th, 2018, at MSRH in Angleton, Texas.
During Newton’s rookie year in the American Flat Track Singles Class, Newton scored a top ten finish in his inaugural race at the Daytona TT. He continued to stun onlookers and competitors by qualifying for the Main Event at every race (except one he missed while recovering from a separated shoulder). Newton garnished his best finish of the year at the season finale in Perris, California. This was accomplished with no prior flat track race experience, and left Newton wanting more. On non-conflicting CMRA dates in 2018, he will compete in the American Flat Track Singles Class aboard his Yamaha YZ450F, and will proudly wear his AGVSPORT America racing leathers. The first race of the American Flat Track season will be March 15th, 2018 at Daytona Motor Speedway.
