David Craigie wins 2018 Yamaha XSR700

PICKERINGTON, OH – February 9, 2019 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  David Craigie, of Santa Rosa, Calif., is the grand prize winner in the 2018 AMA Member Sweepstakes. He will receive a 2018 Yamaha XSR700.

Craigie became eligible to win the XSR700 when he renewed his American Motorcyclist Association membership in 2018. All AMA members who join or renew are automatically eligible to win a number of prizes from a collection that changes for each calendar year.

Craigie, 29, is a four-year member of the AMA. He initially joined to participate in enduro races in AMA District 36.

But he has been without a motorcycle since 2017, when the Tubbs Fire wiped out his home, his belongings and his three motorcycles — a Harley-Davidson V-Rod, a Honda CR250 and a Kawasaki Ninja 250.

“I was very surprised to win, and confused, because I didn’t remember entering anything,” Craigie said. “But it is always fun to get a new bike.”

Other winners in the 2018 AMA Member Sweepstakes were Joseph Dafoe, who won a Scala Rider Communication System, and Tucker DeWitt, who won a Shoei helmet.

The grand prize for the 2019 AMA Member Sweepstakes is a 2019 Yamaha Star Eluder.

Other 2019 prizes include:

  • Shoei helmet
  • Cardo Packtalk Bold
  • Aerostich R3 one-piece suit
  • Helite Moto Airbag Vest
