at least he's on a 250, i was hoping he didnt take a 450 yamaha ride like every other call up.....they fall flat on their face.

good luck to him in the 250 class...gonna be tougher IMO.

Glad to hear he's getting a chance somewhere.

He's earned it with his results this year.



Empty a bag of skittles into the toilet and then flush. It's like watching a five second long nascar race.

This is good news. I hope the kid does well but I dont have allot of faith in those Yamaha 250s. Maybe he will be the one that puts one toward the front. At least if it don't work out he can get back on his own Honda that he and his dad own and run top 10s .
Good luck kid.

This is great news. I bet it was getting expensive doing the privateer thing.

Facciotti is as fast, if not faster than Lange. Seen those guys ride quite a bit around here. JMHO

To be specific, i'm thinking he meant Canada's first hope at AMA success since Lange. Yes, Facciotti is fast, maybe faster, but we will never know how good he could have been, as he chose a career racing in Canada.

Congrats to Cole..!!!

Well deserved and I hope he does well on the 250s!

Going from a Honda 450 to a Yamaha 250 may not be an easy transition, but he's showing a lot of talent and should have everything figured out in a few of weeks.

Last Year when i was still working with TUF racing tuf sold an engine kit to Cole for the honda 250 Steve Beitie put it together I kept telling Dave Antolack that he needed to pick this kid up and go racing .What a missed oportunity I expect good things to come for Cole no mater what he rides.

Hope he does well!
