HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – Veteran Davi Millsaps has re-signed with the Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team for the 2012 racing season. Millsaps, who claims nine amateur national titles, a Lites Supercross Championship, wins in the premier class and numerous podium finishes will join James Stewart in completing the 2012 Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team.
“Davi is really talented, but has been saddled with injuries the past couple of years. I think this is going to be a really good year for him,” said Coy Gibbs, President of the Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team.
“I am glad Davi chose to remain in the Joe Gibbs Racing family, he was riding really well until his knee injury at Red Bud where he led half the first moto,” commented team manager Jeremy Albrecht. “He is fully recovered from the subsequent surgery and I feel is as prepared as he has ever been starting a new season,” he added.
“I have a lot of confidence in the people who make up this team, and my Yamaha is really dialed in year. With my fitness where it should be I think we are going to have the strongest team out there,” said Millsaps.
Millsaps and his teammate Stewart will begin the AMA Supercross Championship Series Jan. 7, 2012 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim in Anaheim. Calif.
