He proved you don’t have to have a huge rig, factory backing or a ton of sponsors to run up front. Finishing out the season as a top ten in AMA Pro racing points. Shoemaker found his way to the podium twice, standing on the box with the likes of Jarod Mees, Jake Johnson, Bryan Smith.
The last 3 races of the season would bring with it opportunity as Jake would finish the season riding the USC Prepared Kawasaki at Springfield, Calistoga and Pomona.
