Yamaha’s Traci Cecco-Pickens Makes ATV Racing History with 9th Championship

“Yamaha congratulates Traci on another championship season and reaching the historic milestone of winning nine championships throughout her career,” said Donnie Luce, Yamaha’s ATV racing coordinator. “Traci has been an inspiration, a role model, and a champion of the sport throughout her career. She’s broken barriers for women in racing, and she’s proven that she is one of the best riders ever in any class or category. She’s a true champion and ambassador for our sport, and Yamaha is extremely proud to have been so closely involved in her successful career.”

Yamaha rolled a big rig into Crawfordsville for the weekend displaying new ATV models, including the 2013 Raptor 700R that is now assembled in the U.S.A. Yamaha will continue to have special giveaway items for fans throughout the weekend and display a large racer appreciation banner to solute competitors who rode blue throughout the season. Cecco’s announcement was capped by a special autograph signing session at the Yamaha truck including all of Yamaha’s top riders.

In the men’s XC-1 Pro series, Yamaha/Ballance Racing riders Walker Fowler and Taylor Kiser came into the Ironman ranked second and third respectively. Their consistency this year, including 12 combined podium finishes, has kept them in the top three this season.

“Yamaha congratulates our entire GNCC ATV racing team for their efforts this year,” said Luce. “Walker and Taylor have had very strong seasons and stayed near the top of the podium all year. We’re excited to see them finish the season strong and know they will be going for wins in these last couple of events.”

Traci turned pro in 1999 and won her first Women’s title in 2000. Since then, she has finished in the top three every year capturing an unprecedented nine overall titles, four second places and one third. Her career has given her international recognition as a top ATV racer, and Moves magazine named her one of its “Power Woman” in 2010 — an award that honors “25 influential and successful women in various fields.” Among her many career highlights, she remembers “Signing my first Yamaha Racing contract in 2006, being the first woman to win a morning ATV overall race, working with young riders at GNCC University, and traveling the country to promote women in racing,” as some of her favorites.

“Thank you to my loving husband for building championship bikes and for being so supportive in my decision to retire,” she said. “To my Yamaha family, thank you for making my dreams come true. Thanks to my longtime sponsors for always believing in me: GYTR, Maxxis, Hiper, Powermadd, HMF, Scott, GT Thunder, Yamalube, Works Connection, Ballance Racing, Fly Racing, Precision, Wiseco, DP Brakes and Tireballs. And also to my newer sponsors: Rekluse, Quadtech, G4 and Big Nutz Racing. Thanks to the greatest pit crew ever: Johnny Gallagher, Jim Wise, Stoney Livengood and Todd Moskala. A huge thank you to my mom and family for putting up with my crazy passion of racing, and a shout out to, Quadzone, and X-Country photos for making us all famous. And thanks especially to my fans and my GNCC family for all the hugs and love through the years! I couldn’t have achieved any of this without each and every one of you!”

About Digital Library

What is a digital library? There is much confusion surrounding this phrase as there seems to be different definitions of digital library from different point of view. The term digital library has a variety of potential meanings, ranging from a digitized collection of material that one might find in a traditional library through to the collection of all digital information along with the services that make that information useful to all possible users. As there are many definitions of a "digital library", terms such as "electronic library" and "virtual library" are often used synonymously. A digital library is nothing but a large database for the people who are working on hypertext environment. It is an environment, which supports the full life cycle of creation, storage, preservation, dissemination and use of data, information and knowledge. In more simple way, we can say that ‘Digital libraries are the digital face of traditional libraries that include both digital collections and traditional, fixed media collections.'

Features and Benefits:

  •  Finger-tip access to different technical books and journals
  •  Browse the digital library by keyword, author or a combination of criteria
  •  Not confined to any physical boundary
  •  Enhanced information retrieval

About Webinar

In simple words, a "Webinar" is a Web Based Seminar, is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web using video conferencing software. Now-a-days, as the Technology is becoming quite advanced, webinar is an easier way to reach out students far away from the speaker or "The HOST". Seven Motors will be organizing Webinars or say "Series of Webinars" for students in order to allow the students gain some Industrial Experience via Industrial EXPERTS.

  • The present scenario tells that Undergraduates need to roam around here and there to gain some Industrial Experience; it can be done in the college campus as well. Others hardly care, Seven Motors do care about you.

  • Industrial Experts will be available directly on the webinar platform where students have the chance to clear their doubts that are yet to be cleared out.

  • Our main Aim is to introduce the ATV Technology which is quite unknown from large amount of students of the country; we tend to bring a new revolution in the field of ATV and what better to have rather than many brilliant minds of the country that can join us in this revolution.

  • With the help of the webinar platform, SEVEN MOTORS looks to have a direct relationship with students and help them out achieve their goals.

We look forward to expand our family as huge as "UNIVERSE".




About Tutorials

A tutorial is a method of transferring knowledge and used vastly as a part of a learning process. It is typically set up as a series of steps that progress through levels of difficulty and understanding. It is more interactive and specific than a book or a lecture. A tutorial seeks to teach by example and supply the information to complete a certain task. Internet computer tutorials can take the form of a screen recording, a written document (either online or downloadable), interactive tutorial, or an audio file, where a person will give step by step instructions on how to do something.

Seven Motors inspires student to have the deep knowledge of the subject. We work to offer best and convenient technical knowledge to students.

Tutorials usually have the following characteristics:

  •  A presentation of the view usually explaining and showing the user the user interface

  •  A demonstration of a process, using examples to show how a workflow or process is completed; often broken up into discrete modules or sections.

  •  Some method of review that reinforces or tests understanding of the content in the related module or section.

  •  A transition to additional modules or sections that builds on the instructions already provided. Tutorials can be linear or branching.
