Team Arctic Conquers Mud Nationals in Jacksonville, Texas

Team Arctic mud racers have come full circle since last season’s introduction of the Thundercat. That full circle ran around the competition all weekend at Mud Nationals, this time aboard the TRV 1000H2.

“I’m unbelievably proud of our Team Arctic racers and the dominating results they posted at the Daytona 500 of mud racing; Mud Nationals,” said Ted Bettin, Team Arctic ATV Race Coordinator.

“At the end of last season, Arctic Cat promised our racers we would work on the problems that plagued them. This year we came back with new racing setups in the TRV chassis, and they kicked some serious butt. With the help of the Arctic Cat-built 1000 motor and a little more tuning, these TRVs will be unstoppable.”

Charles Touchet of Maurice, Louisiana, piloted his TRV 1000H2 to victory in the premier Open Class in the Mudda-Cross event. The next day, Touchet repeated with a second-place podium in the Open Class of the Mud Bog race.

Teammate Charlie Neese from Fort Walton Beach, Florida, found himself in the first-place driver’s seat as he won the Pro Class aboard a similarly prepared TRV 1000H2.

Other notable performances were from Anthony Abrameit aboard his 650H1 in the Bogger Class of the Mud Bog race. Representing Arctic Cat dealer Brazos Cycles in Richmond, TX, Abrameit took third place.

Look for other Team Arctic racers, Mark Kelly, Mike Johnson and Travis Tucker, at the next race on the CMR mud racing calendar April 24-26 in Choudrant, Louisiana. Go to www.championshipmudracing.com for more information.

    Hi my names jake, my family owns a prowler 1000.they dont use it much but it is my toy. I am happy with the praformance of the 1000, you might wonder if the 1000 can compare to the rzr, well my neibor happens th own one , a rzr s and we SMOKED it! it didnt even have a chance of catching up from the start, the top speed we got it is 75mph and his rzr only goes about 65mph. we are lookinng forward in getting a supercharger. i am verry happy with my 1000 , but i am having some trouble with the rear diffrential’s boot coming loose. I live in arizona and have ben talking to some of the dealers about it. They say that Az is the only place they are having these problems,because of the pressure , Imm not sure what it exactly is. leave a comment, and tell me if you are having the same problem.

    I’m on my 2nd arctic cat mud pro 700. Both of them have the same problem and the dealership can’t fix it. The motor cranks over but won’t start. Speedometer needle goes from 0 to 110 continuously when key is turned on. The next day it might start right up but I’m afraid I’ll get stranded again if I take it for a ride. What a waste of money.

      Wow i have the same problem with mine. Sometimes it will start and sometimes it wont and the dealer cant fix it either. The tack does the same as yours also. It has even left me stranded in a field checkin hog traps before. I also have a problem with it just shutting off while riding, usually at low speeds. Since we bought this thang its just been one big headache. I have an 06 A. Cat 500 4×4 with just some mud tires and it runs like a champ. I just think its a bad model. I dont like to ride it anymore because of its lack of dependability.

    Took mud pro to shop the last day of warranty. Now they’re saying I submerged it. What a joke, give them a list of 9 items that need to be repaired. Trying to get my money back this time. There is a lemon law for atvs also. I had attorney file a lawsuit. The game is on. Wish me luck, they said it is wore out and that I abused the poor kitty cat. I have less than 500 miles on it.

    I have a King Quad 700 05 I have issues with it cutting off when it gets hot and doesnt want to start. Its been in and out of the shop many times and still does it. Anyways what Im getting at is when I sell it Im looking fwd on buying an Arctic Cat. I ride with guys who have them and have very few problems . To name a few axle problems and belt issues but Im sure and hope Arctic Cat fixed these issues since 05 and 06. They seem to hold up pretty good and have min electrical issues like i am having.
