The JGRMX/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team is elated to continue working with Justin Hill for the 2019 season. The AMA 250 West Supercross Champion has an impressive resume since turning pro in 2013. With eight main event wins and 18 podium finishes, Hill is a natural talent on the motorcycle. Justin moves up to the 450 class on the 2019 Suzuki RM-Z450, competing in the 17-round Monster Energy Supercross series and 12-round Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
2018. Racing the 250 West Supercross series, Hill showed tremendous speed in his first year with the JGRMX/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team. Hill finished on the podium at the Oakland Supercross, and won the following round in San Diego. In an effort to learn the 450 ropes, the team and Hill decided to race the Tampa Supercross in the 450 class. The #46 caught the establishment by surprise in qualifying fourth-fastest, winning his heat race, and battling for the lead. Hill also raced the majority of the 450 Nationals last summer.
2017. Hill returned to the Pro Circuit Kawasaki team and contested the 250 West Supercross series. Scoring four wins and eight podiums in nine rounds, Justin earned his first 250 Supercross crown in dominant fashion. Unfortunately, an injured wrist sidelined the Oregon native for the latter part of the Nationals.
2016. Moving from the Red Bull KTM team to the Troy Lee Designs KTM program, Hill contested the 250 East Supercross series. He won the Toronto round, but disaster struck in the next race when he crashed in practice and suffered a concussion. Justin returned for the outdoors, but an injured back limited his racing.
2015. Making the switch from Pro Circuit Kawasaki to Red Bull KTM, Justin three top-five results in the 250 West Supercross series. His best finish was a second place (Santa Clara). During the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship series Hill finished runner-up at the Glen Helen National. An injury stymied his progress, but he came back for the remaining five rounds.
2014. In his sophomore season, Hill made huge strides in Supercross. He captured his first 250 Supercross victory (San Diego, 250 West), earned a total of four podium finishes, and earned fourth in the series. In the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship Hill improved on his career best by finishing fourth at the series opener (Hangtown). Unfortunately, injuries forced him to retire early from the series.
2013. Riding for the Pro Circuit Kawasaki 250 team, Justin Hill earned a fifth place finish in his very first professional race (Dallas Supercross, 250 East). The Oregon native proceeded to score three more top-five finishes, ending up 12th overall. When the racing headed outdoors, Hill rode with consistency to 12th in that series. Justin showed promise by logging 5-7 moto scores at Washougal for fifth overall.
