Last season Yamaha came out of the gate at the first USCC cross-country race and claimed a win in the Pro Open class aboard a Nytro optimized for terrain racing. But was it a stock or a mod sled? And was the front suspension kit legal? That’s where the drama ensued as the other manufacturers put it up for a vote in an ISR conference call and shot it down. Deemed not legal for USCC stock class racing, it was, however, deemed legal for stock class racing on the Cor Powersports circuit where it swept the Pro points and won Semi-Pro Sprint. It also won Semi-Pro Open at the USCC Oslo race with Ben Lindbom behind the bars, took second in USCC Pro Open points under Ross Erdman and Erik Frigon used one to run the table in the USCC East Semi-Pro Improved class, going unbeaten in races and claiming the points. Erdman also raced this same basic sled at the Soo I-500. Follow along as we go inside what makes this Nytro special.
