Welcome to jaynewtonracing.com.   It all started with a trip to the Houston Supercross, and Jay was hooked on motorcycles. From his humble beginnings in motocross at the age of 5, to his current road racing career, 16 year old Texas native Jay Newton has always had his sights set for greatness. From the time he began riding at age 5, he showed much promise as a racer, and he quickly made his way onto the local, regional, state and national motocross scene. Quite an accomplished rider, he was a regular on the dirt until age 10, at which time he decided he wanted to try something different. He found his new calling, and it was motorcycle road racing. Already having 4 ½ years of riding experience helped him with the transition to the pavement and it simply seemed to click for Jay. He was what many would call, a natural, and immediately started making frequent appearances on the podium beginning in 2009.

After attending two MotoGP races at Laguna Seca as a guest of friend, Colin Edwards, Jay was even more determined to become a fixture in the road racing community. It has been a very quick 5 years for Jay, as he has progressed at an incredible rate. He has challenged himself every year and set his goals extremely high each season, but he has continually met or exceeded every expectation. Making his way from the mini classes to the big bikes was not an easy task for Jay, but he has made it appear effortless with his smooth, seamless, intelligent and controlled riding. Gaining accolades along the way, Jay has become a fierce competitor and a force to be reckoned with.

The CMRA has been the stepping stone for great riders such as Freddie Spencer, Kevin Schwantz, Colin Edwards, and Ben Spies. It is Jay’s long term desire to follow in their footsteps and have a career to rival theirs. He has a love for riding and racing, and knows that it takes hard work to be successful. Jay has been training at the Texas Tornado Boot Camp for 4 years under the watchful eye of two-time World Superbike Champion and current MotoGP racer, Colin Edwards, and his staff. He has ridden with some of the best racers the AMA, WSBK, and MotoGP has to offer, and has held his own against them. The boot camp has made a huge difference in the way he rides and has boosted his confidence considerably. Though he simply can not get the dirt out of his system, and loves to cross-train with motocross as well, road racing is where his heart is.

For 2015, Jay plans to campaign his Kawasaki ZX-6R (636) as a part of Team Green Kawasaki and JAB Motorsports.  Jay’s goal is to race the Superstock 600 class in the newly formed MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Motorcycle Road Racing Championship full time, as well as select events with CMRA and WERA.
