The AMA ATV Motocross Championship Series has announced that Can-Am will be the recipient of the 2011 Manufacturer’s Cup, edging out Honda by less than forty points.

Each year, AMA Pro Racing awards the manufacturer that accumulates the most points in the AMA Pro class throughout the course of a season with the Manufacturer’s Cup. The series points are configured race-to-race, based on each manufacturer’s best overall finisher. Can-Am finished out the season with seven of the eleven victories, aided by Can-Am riders John Natalie, Chad Wienen and Chase Snapp.

“On behalf of BRP and Can-Am we are extremely proud of our racers and teams that contributed to winning this year’s Manufacturer’s Cup championship aboard the DS450. The entire Can-Am / Motorworks team has worked extremely hard, investing countless hours and making numerous sacrifices to help us achieve our common goal,” says Can-Am Race Manager, Jimmie O’Dell. “Our team riders John Natalie and Chad Wienen were true inspirations this season by both overcoming adversity and have also taken training and preparation to another level. I also want to thank Can-Am X-Team rookie pro Chase Snapp and his team as they worked extremely hard this season and have contributed to Can-Am winning this manufacturer’s cup title.”

Honda comes in a close second, claiming the other four wins this season. Honda riders Josh Upperman, Nick DeNoble, Joe Byrd and Joel Hetrick contributed to the success of Honda this season by each scoring best-finish points for their brand.

Suzuki riders Jeremy Lawson and Devin Heimes each added points to give Suzuki third place in the standings, while Thomas Brown held Yamaha in the fourth position. Joel Hetrick contributed to Kawasaki’s points, before switching to Honda after three rounds of racing.

The 2011 Manufacturer’s Cup will be awarded to the Can-Am team at the AMA Pro Racing banquet next month.
