          Bryan Buckhannon Podium

          Can-Am Renegade 800R X xc ATV racer Bryan Buckhannon won the 4×4 Pro class and earned the top spot on the morning overall podium at round nine of the 2014 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country racing series. Can-Am amateur 4×4 racers also won three classes, as the 13-round national endurance series made its annual stop at Snowshoe Mountain Resort in Snowshoe, WV.

          “I think it’s fair to say that Bryan Buckhannon has found his groove with the Can-Am Renegade 800R, earning back-to-back wins and three victories in the last four rounds. His outstanding performance at a challenging Snowshoe GNCC, which pushed him into the 4×4 Pro class points lead, gives him momentum heading into the two-month break,” says Jeff Leclerc, Racing Project Leader, Can-Am. “Can-Am 4×4 amateur class racers continue to outdistance their competition, as Tanner Bowles, Nick Eichelberger and Terry Whitesides all own the class points lead at the break.”

            Yamaha Viking VI Action

            Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., is donating $15,000 to two of the company’s charitable organization partners: Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) and Feed the Children (FTC).

            Yamaha recently gathered select motorsports dealers for an incentive and appreciation event near Austin, Texas, where the company unveiled the all-new 2015 Viking VI EPS six-person Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicle. The launch event-turned-celebration of Yamaha’s SxS line expansion included a number of activities that ultimately allowed Yamaha corporate staff and dealers to help raise awareness and money for HAVA and FTC. As a result of the event, Yamaha committed to donating $15,000 to be split evenly between the two organizations.
