Yammie Wins on Mille Lacs As One-legged Corey Davidson Dominates the Field
Yamaha-backed cross country star, Corey Davidson entered the USCC Mille Lacs 300 in Garrison, MN, race on Feb. 10 and 11, 2007, with his leg still in a cast from a December, 2006 motocross crash and proved that even on one-leg he was the one to beat as he scored two first-place finishes in the two-race format to take the Pro Open overall win on his Davidson Racing Apex RTX.
Davidson and his Yamaha Apex were the combination to beat in the Pro Open classes of the event. Handicap and all, he added a third overall in Pro Stock on a second Apex.
“I was the only driver in the Pro Open class on a four-stroke,” Davidson said after the event. “The Apex really had an advantage in power and top-end speed over the two-strokes. The Apex handled just perfectly all weekend.”
Davidson’s Yamaha teammate Travis Hjelle added to the spoils by winning both legs of the Semi Pro Open event, finishing first overall by just two seconds after 40 miles of racing.
