N orth Carolina's Jacob Hayes claimed his first ever Arenacross victory when he charged to the front of the pack in front of his home crowd in Greensboro, North Carolina on January 25. In doing so, he becomes the second Road to Supercross rider to win this year. Aaron Plessinger was the first two weeks ago. On the Brewer Cycles Kawasaki, Hayes went 1-2 to capture the overall win ahead of Colt Nichols on the Babbitt's Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki. Nichols went 3-1 on the night. Michael McDade, on the Motospor Express/Spinechillers Racing Kawasaki, filled out the podium with a 5-3. Defending champ Tyler Bowers went 11-5 for seventh overall, but he revealed that he's been riding with a broken leg (a fracture near his ankle) since round one of the series after he and another rider collided. Zach Ames, sixth in N.C., still leads the championship but by just two points over McDade. Bowers is still right there in third just four points behind McDade.

The 22-year-old Webb has raced in 125cc and Moto3 for seven years with 20 top-10 finishes. He will race in a team managed by former TT racer Ryan Farquhar. Webb's best GP finish was fifth in the 2008 Portuguese Grand Prix. In 2010 he had a career best 10th in the championship. In 2011, Webb rode for Mahindra and gave the Indian manufacturer its first pole position in Valencia. Last year, Webb left Moto3 and raced World Supersport for the PTR Racing team, with a best result of 11th in the final round in Spain. "I'm a big TT fan," Webb said. "I've already been to the event and I have always said that I wanted to do it one day. It's something that has been going through my mind more and more of late, and the opportunity came along to work with Ryan Farquhar who puts out some of the best bikes on the grid, so I simply couldn't say no.
