(Bradenton, FL) The International HydroDrag Association is pleased to announce that Yamaha is the newest Presenting Sponsor of the GreenHulk.net US HydroDrag Nationals and RIVA Racing HydroDrag World Finals.
“We are always looking to get behind our riders, and as the HydroDrags have exploded in popularity over the last year, we are happy to be on board,” said Andrew Cullen, Yamaha’s marketing manager. IJSBA Managing Director, Scott Frazier added, “2013 is shaping up to be one of the most important seasons in PWC Racing history.
Mike Young has been a leader in top quality watercraft promotions for as long as most of us have been involved in the sport. Whether or not Mike is the promoter, we find him at every prestigious event around the world. It is no surprise that his Hydrodrag series has evolved into the most rapidly evolving form of IJSBA Racing. Adding a regulation slalom course further underscores the expansion of this segment of the sport.
