Josh Herrin had an up-and-down season in 2017. Riding a Meen Motorsports Yamaha, Herrin earned a Motul Superbike podium in race two at Laguna Seca Raceway, before finding himself sitting on the sidelines for the Pittsburgh International Race Complex round. By season’s end he was back on the Superbike podium as a fill-in rider for Cameron Beaubier when the factory Yamaha rider suffered injury – ironically at the Pittsburgh round. Herrin’s best result was a second place in race one in the season finale at Barber Motorsports Park and he ended up eighth in the point standings.
Herrin is a former AMA Superbike Champion and also a MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Champion.
