 Walton Raceway is pleased to announce our continued partnership with Yamaha Motor Canada for the 2011 Parts Canada TransCan, Wiseco Amateur and Pro Grand National Championship. During this year’s 20th Anniversary Celebration, Yamaha Motor Canada will be awarding a “Yamaha Factory Ride” to the highest point total Yamaha rider entered in the Wiseco Amateur Grand National Championship.


“We are pleased to continue supporting the growth and development of Canadian amateur motocross racing and the 2011 Parts Canada TransCan, Wiseco Amateur Grand National Championship at Walton Raceway.” said Bryan Hudgin, Public Relations Specialist for Yamaha Motor Canada. “Included in the Yamaha Factory Ride Package is the use of a 2012 YZ (at the winner’s choice) and a $2500 credit for parts and gear for the 2012 season.

At Yamaha, we carry products from companies like AXO, One Industries, Matrix, FMF, and of course our own Yamalube and GYTR lines. Not only does the winner get the use of a brand new YZ, but $2500 to spend on apparel, accessories, parts and lubricants to keep it fresh all season.”
