“We’ve seen some exciting nominations of great racers and racing role models, and now it is time to find out who can generate the most votes and become the first-ever Yamaha All-American ATV Racer,” says Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “Yamaha believes in the sportsmanship of the ATV racing community, and is proud to give GNCC racers this opportunity. We’re also proud that the YFZ450R is assembled in the U.S.A. at our factory in Georgia. These two factors were the inspiration for this program.”
