Jake Lewis to Fill in for Injured Cory Ventura; Disrupt Racing
Disrupt Racing has announced that they have signed Jake Lewis as a fill in Supersport rider for the injured Cory Ventura. Ventura suffered compound fractures in his tibia and fibula in a crash during the Supersport race at Barber Motorsports Park during round 2.
Jake Lewis is an American motorcycle racer born on June 17, 1995, in Princeton, Kentucky. He began his racing career at a young age and quickly showed promise in the sport. Lewis made his professional debut in the AMA Pro Racing series in 2010 when he was just 15 years old. In 2013, Lewis had a breakthrough season in the AMA Pro SuperSport East division, securing the championship title. This success earned him a promotion to the AMA Pro Superbike class the following year. In 2014, he finished fourth in the Superbike standings, impressing many with his skills and potential.
In 2015, Lewis transitioned to MotoAmerica, which replaced the AMA Pro Racing series as the premier motorcycle racing championship in the United States. Riding for the team Yoshimura Suzuki, Lewis competed in the MotoAmerica Superbike class where he finished fifth in the championship standings in his rookie season. He shifted his focus to Stock 1000 in 2021 and won the Championship aboard an Altus Motorsports GSX-R1000R.
