    Yamaha announces cross country snowmobiling support

    Yamaha Snowmobile Division announced a contingency program for qualified racers competing in both regions of United States Cross Country (USCC) race events.

    "Cross country is one of the most accessible forms of racing available," said Yamaha Snowmobile Marketing Manager Wade West. "An average snowmobiler can come out to a cross country event and have a very good time competing on the same kinds of terrain he or she rides all season long, and do it with a minimum of setup modifications to their trail sled."

    "We encourage amateur racers to develop their skills in organized events, like USCC's Yamaha Sport 85 class and gradually move up to the semi-pro and pro ranks," added West.

    Yamaha's contingency program for the coming 2009-2010 race season is as follows:

    Pro Stock/Pro Open class*

    Red Lake 500:

    1st: $10,000; 2nd: $3,000; 3rd: $1,500

    All other USCC/USCC East events:

    1st: $3,000; 2nd: $2,000; 3rd: $1,000

    Semi-Pro Stock/Semi-Pro Improved class*

    Red Lake 500:

    1st: $3,000; 2nd: $2,000; 3rd: $1,000

    All other USCC/USCC East events:

    1st: $1,500; 2nd: $1,000; 3rd: $500

    *Contingency will only be paid out for 1 class per rider at each USCC event.
