For Immediate Release – Daniel McNaughton used consistent finishes in MX3 Junior B, MX2 Junior B and School Boy to take the first Yamaha Factory Ride Award for 2012.
The Rumsey, AB native steered his 2010 YZ250F to 4th overall in Junior B, 4th overall in Schoolboy and a 2nd overall in MX3 Junior B to collect the most points of any Yamaha rider at the Western Amateur National.
For his efforts, McNaughton will get the use of a YZ of his choice for 2013 along with $2500 in parts and accessories.
“I was told I was in contention after Day 2, and I knew going into the last moto that I had to get at least a 15th in order to earn the ride.” McNaughton commented.
“It was a little nerve-wracking but I brought it home. I buy all my Yamahas at Romar Powersports, so it will be nice to walk a YZ out the door without having to pay this time! Thanks Yamaha!”
The Factory Ride Awards will continue this weekend at the Eastern Canadian Amateur National at Deschambault and conclude for 2012 at the Walton TransCan in August. Two more Yamaha riders still have the opportunity to ride a YZ of their choice and collect $2500 in parts and accessories in 2013.
Will it be you?
