Jake Lewis - 2015 MotoAmerica Superbike Rookie of the Year: "It's a huge honor to have a man like Wayne Rainey, a legend, give me this Superbike Rookie of the Year award," Jake Lewis said. "Back in 1982 when he won it, I wasn't even thought of. It's a big honor for me and I'd love to hang that number-one plate and guitar that Cameron (Beaubier) is about to get in my new house, but there's always next year. I had an up-and-down year - a few good weekends and a few not-so-good weekends. But I never gave up and I had a lot to learn and gained a lot of experience from racing with guys like Josh (Hayes), Cameron and Roger (Hayden). It's never easy and hopefully next year we're supposed to have a new bike to take the fight to Yamaha. Suzuki wants to get back to its winning ways and I have a great team of Yoshimura Suzuki and my guys are going to be working hard next year to hopefully be in the fight for the championship. I especially want to thank Roger (Hayden). He took a big leap of faith in letting me move into his home last year and some mornings I was in bed at 9, 10 o'clock and he'd say, 'C'mon man let's go cycling,' and I say, 'let me sleep.' Him and Earl (Hayden) pushed me really hard and it's good for me. I've got a lot of learning left to do, but I'm happy where I am with my career and I hope to keep progressing."
