CYPRESS, Calif. — June 22, 2011 — Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., the leading maker of ATV and Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicles for outdoorsmen and women, has launched its 2011 National Hunting and Fishing (NHF) Day sweepstakes – further demonstrating Yamaha’s continued support of outdoor recreational sports and conservation efforts.

Yamaha, a multi-year partner of NHF Day, is donating a 2011 Grizzly 450 Auto 4×4 that one lucky outdoorsman will win.  The sweepstakes is being promoted at NHF Day events nationwide and anyone can enter to win by simply registering online at www.yamahaoutdoors.com/nhfday through the end of November 2011.
