Cross-Country Team Wins Nine Classes at USCC Red Lake 200

Team Arctic’s cross-country team delivered solid results at the USCC Red Lake 200 in Red Lake, Minn., including nine class victories.

Team Arctic racer and Arctic Cat engineer Brian Dick nailed second place finishes in both Pro 600 and Pro Open classes at the two-day event, while his Christian Bros. Racing teammate D.J. Ekre went for the Ironman award, taking third in both Pro classes and winning the Expert 85 class.

A continuing story at USCC cross-country events is the large entries in the 85-hp classes, where the new Arctic Cat Sno Pro 500 has proven exceedingly capable. At the Red Lake 200, Arctic Cat Sno Pro 500s claimed the top-10 positions in Expert 85 and the top-12 in Sport 85.

“This was another great weekend for Team Arctic,” said Race Manager Mike Kloety. “Tucker’s emphatic win at the X Games was as impressive as ever, and Ryan’s third place finish, combined with four other teammates in the final, made it a strong showing.

“At the Red Lake 200 we showed the depth of our team by winning nine classes. This was the first cross-country this season where we didn’t win Pro 600 or Semi Pro 600, but we were close. And to see the growth of the 85-hp classes proves that our Sno Pro 500 has been a huge hit.”

The next cross-country race is Feb. 13 in Grand Forks, ND. Go to usccracing.com for more information.
