YAMAHA dealer and Hall of Fame snowmobile racer Bobby Donahue has been given the American Council of Snowmobile Associations Dealer of the Year award on behalf of his family’s dealership, Donahue Super Sports in Wisconsin Rapids, Wis.

The award, which was presented at the 44th Annual International Snowmobile Congress in Massachusetts, recognizes the best snowmobile dealership in the U.S. for its involvement with local clubs and state association, for its promotion of snowmobiling to both the seasoned sledder and non-snowmobiler, and for taking a leadership role in fundraising and special projects.

“At first I was in shock and thought they were messing with me,” said Donahue (see image, courtesy Yamaha). “Then as it sank in and I shared the news with our team and our customers, it began to represent something very special to my family as well as our employees and the many, many people who have supported Donahue Super Sports over the years.

“Our parents, Bob and Alice, founded the store over 46 years ago on the premise of friendly service and product knowledge,” he added. “To see that foundation, along with what my brothers — Terry and Troy — and I have added to the business, earning national recognition is something special. This award represents the close relationships our family has developed with the community as well as the snowmobile industry.”

Donahue Super Sports has been a Yamaha dealer since 1966.
