“We are very excited both for our participating Yamaha dealerships and for supercross fans around the country as we renew this important partnership,” said Bob Starr, General Manager of Yamaha’s Motorsports Group. “Attendance at the Monster Energy Supercross was vibrant last year and as such is just a fantastic initiative for Yamaha and its dealer partners!”
