“Yamaha is excited to announce our 2009 Factory Race Teams across all of the thrilling motorsports that we support,” says Keith McCarty, Yamaha’s racing division manager. “From top talent to up-and-comers, these riders have proven that they have what it takes to compete at the highest levels. Yamaha is a leader in racing technology and innovation, and we’re proud to support these riders and have them represent our brand.”
For 2009, professional racers Steve Taylor and Iain Hayden will pilot their race-modified FX Nytro sleds in the premier Pro Open class.
Taylor returns for his second season on the track for Team Yamaha. His highlights last year include two wins at the WPSA races in Cadillac and Gaylord, Mich., as well as putting the first 4-stroke sled into the main competition at ESPN’s Winter X Games.
Hayden is new to the Yamaha team this season. In 2006 he finished a perfect season on the Canadian National circuit, CSRA, going 16-for-16 and earning both the title and the Racer of the Year award that year.
