Press Release –
Four-stroke Yamaha snowmobiles wrapped up the US portion of the 2006 COSDRA grass drag racing season exactly as they began it – winning.
At the Hastings 500 meet in Hastings, Mich. on Oct. 14-15, Nytro and Vector sleds shut down the competition to win both Pro and Semi Pro Stock 500 classes, with the Apex also taking a podium position in Stock 600.
Making things even sweeter, at press time Lustilla Racing’s Rocky Miller appeared headed for the 2006 COSDRA Stock 500 championship on his Vector.
Grass drag racing is supposed to be a summer sport, and when six inches of snow fell in western Michigan before Saturday’s races, organizers faced some serious work getting the clay launch pad ready.
But the cold didn’t stop Ashley Agdorny from claiming the Semi Pro Stock 500 win on her Nytro over the Vector of Lustilla Racing’s Chris Weise, or Miller from taking his Lustilla Racing Vector to the Stock 500 win. Canadian Jordan Cole and Miller followed up with a close 2-3 finish in Stock 600 on their Apex sleds.
On Sunday Agdorny took advantage of sunny skies to repeat her victory over Weise in Semi Pro Stock 500, with Miller once again topping the Stock 500 pro ranks. “These Yamaha snowmobiles are just awesome,” said team owner Jeff Lustilla after the event. “They have great horsepower and they really go, plus the reliability is awesome. Yamaha definitely makes the best sleds now – the competitors are all chasing us.”
