Each year, Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., honors its racing champions in an end-of-the-year ceremony that includes induction into the company’s “Wall of Champions.” Last week, and for the first time in the company’s history, the ceremony was held at the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, Alabama, where MotoAmerica road racers Jake Gagne and Blake Davis were among 10 Yamaha “bLU cRU” riders and drivers recognized for their 2022 season championships.
Gagne, who has been honored twice in the past–in 2015 for his MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Championship and last year for his 2021 MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship–achieved a threepeat as a Wall of Champions inductee for winning the 2022 MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship. He was joined at the ceremony by first-time Wall of Champions inductee Blake Davis, who at just 16 years old, clinched the 2022 MotoAmerica REV’IT! Twins Cup Championship.
The inductees, which included eight other Yamaha racers who captured championships in disciplines ranging from Supercross and outdoor motocross, to cross-country racing, to ATV motocross and Side-by-Side racing, received copies of their honorary plaques that will be added to Yamaha’s Wall of Champions, which commemorates the accomplishments of both past and present racing champions.
