Joshua Kurt "Josh" Hayes (born April 4, 1975 in Gulfport, Mississippi) is a professional motorcycle roadracer who turned pro in 1996 and also raced in MotoGP.[1] He currently races in the AMA Pro Racing American Superbike Championship on a Graves Motorsports Yamaha YZF-R1. Hayes is noted for his achievement in having won the 2003 AMA Superstock Championship riding Attack Suzuki's GSX-R750, and both the 2006 and the 2007 AMA Formula Xtreme Championship for Erion Honda on board the CBR600RR, and the AMA Superbike Championship three times in a row (2010, 2011, and 2012).

Career[edit]

Hayes racing in 2013

In 2008, Hayes won the Daytona 200 but was disqualified soon after for an illegal crankshaft.[2]

In 2009 Josh Hayes competed in the AMA Pro Racing American Superbike championship alongside Ben Bostrom. He also spearheaded the Yamaha Racing effort in the annual Daytona 200 race. For 2010 Hayes returned with Yamaha in AMA Superbike. Riding for Graves Motorsports, R1 he clinched his first AMA Superbike Championship for 2010, with 11 podium finishes including seven wins.

Hayes made his MotoGP debut at the 2011 Valencian Grand Prix riding a Tech 3 Yamaha, replacing countryman Colin Edwards, who suffered arm injuries in the fatal crash that aborted the 2011 Malaysian Grand Prix. Having avoided a first corner crash that eliminated four other riders, Hayes finished the race in seventh place.

Personal life[edit]

Hayes' wife, Melissa Paris, made her professional debut in the Daytona Sportbike class at the 2009 Daytona 200, with the couple racing against each other at the event.[3] She will participate as a "wild card" rider at the World Supersport Championship race at Miller Motorsports Park in 2009 as part of the Superbike World Championship meet.
