Chino, Calif. – September 15, 2010 –
Yoshimura racer Cody Grant took home the 2010
AMA ATV Motocross Rookie of the Year award from
the annual banquet on Sunday night a Pala Casino
in Pala, California. Cody was given the award in
celebration of his commendable performance
during his first season of racing in the Pro
class. "The first season is always a tough one,
but Yoshimura helped me out a lot this year,"
said Grant. "Their engines are the best, and
their trackside support was great. Any problem I
had, they were right there to help."
Yoshimura's Kory Ellis extended his
congratulations to Cody on behalf of the
company. "Yoshimura is really happy to have
supported Cody the last two years," said Ellis.
"We're proud to see him move up to the Pro class
and win the rookie of the year award, and hope
to have continued success with him."
Grant finished 11th overall in the 2010 AMA ATV
Motocross series, and he broke into the top 10
four times during the season. With his rookie
season now complete, the Kentucky native has
returned to his home in Oakland, KY, to help his
family on their farm. Racing is never far from
his mind however, as he continues to train and
improve his skills for next season.
