Josh Herrin’s campaign of “Make Herrin Factory Again” will finally be achieved in 2019 as the Georgian put together a 2018 season that turned heads and earned him the second Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superbike on the all-powerful Yoshimura Suzuki team for 2019.
Herrin won two races last year on the Attack Performance/Herrin Compound Yamaha YZF-R1 and he finished third in the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship. The two wins were the fifth and sixth of Herrin’s Superbike career, the other four wins coming in his championship winning season in 2013.
When Herrin didn’t win, he was consistently a podium finisher, finishing in the top three a total of 12 times out of 20 races. With a factory ride for 2019, Herrin should be even more of a factor for the MotoAmerica Superbike title.
