CYPRESS, Calif. – November 25, 2008 – Yamaha
Motor Corp., U.S.A., is hosting a racing
celebration for Factory Rider Dustin Nelson’s
second QuadCross pro series championship at the
upcoming Yamaha/ITP QuadCross Finale.
Nelson, who secured his 2008 title last month at
Competitive Edge MX in Hesperia, Calif., will be
the first person to race the all-new YFZ450R
when the gates drop at Glen Helen this coming
Sunday, November 30.
“This is an exciting weekend for Yamaha
racing as we celebrate Dustin’s 2008 QuadCross
championship and move into a new era with the
all-new and highly-anticipated YFZ450R,” said
Steve Nessl, Yamaha ATV/SxS marketing manager.
“Nelson was very involved in the development of
the new YFZ450R so it is only appropriate that
he is the first person to race it.”
Yamaha plans to celebrate Nelson’s 2008
championship throughout the race day on Sunday.
Company representatives will be handing out
Dustin Nelson Championship T-shirts, cooking
lunch for race fans, providing public displays
and demonstration rides aboard new YFZ450R ATVs
(restrictions apply), and awarding the
season-finale YFZ450 to one lucky race fan.
