CHECKERED FLAGS KEEP WAVING FOR TEAM ARCTIC’S SNOCROSS AND CROSS-COUNTRY RACERS

The checkered flag of victory continued to wave for Team Arctic cross-country and snocross racers, who combined to take 44 first-place finishes during a weekend of terrain competition.

Team Green remains the undisputed king of cross-country, and their performance at the USXC Thief River Falls 300 reinforced the fact with 17 of 21 class wins, 40 of 63 podium placing’s (including seven podium sweeps). Wes Selby continued his victory parade by winning the hard-fought Pro Stock class. Team Arctic captured six of the top-10 positions, with Cody Kallock, Timmy Kallock, Chad Lian, Jordan Torgerson and Ryan Trout earning the honors.

Other Thief River Falls 300 class winners include Timmy Kallock, Jeremy Grove, Jon Arneson, Matt Feil, Jolene Bute, Brandon Wolter, Ean Voigt, David Brown, Savannah Landrus, Karl Mattison, James Mattison, Mike Mattison and Gerry Mattison.

 

Team Arctic showed its depth and resolve by scoring four wins at the ISOC snocross national in Mt. Pleasant, Mich. Tucker Hibbert led the way with a win in Pro Open, while Logan Christian maintained his torrid pace to score another podium.

Trent Wittwer, Ryley Bester and CJ Petosky also scored wins at Mt. Pleasant for Team Arctic. In all, Team Arctic racers notched 15 podium positions at the penultimate stop of the 2015 ISOC National tour.

“Our racers and crews continue to deliver outstanding results aboard the ProCross-based ZR race sleds,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “We dominated the two-day, 300-mile cross-country in convincing fashion, and we held tough in Mt. Pleasant with key class victories and podiums. With just one remaining weekend of USXC cross-country and a final weekend of ISOC National snocross, many Team Arctic racers are on the verge of winning year-end championship points battles.”

The final race of the USXC season is March 7-8 in Warroad, Minn. The last stop of the ISOC National season is March 13-15 in Lake Geneva, Wis.

Team Arctic terrain racers delivered a winning weekend of epic proportion, completely dominating both the USXC Seven Clans Casino I-500 cross-country with 14 class wins and the ISOC Seneca Allegany Air Force National Snocross with 10 wins.

Team Arctic’s Brian Dick delivered a dramatic victory at the I-500 in Thief River Falls, setting the fast time during the first two days and holding off his Christian Bros. Racing teammate Zach Herfindahl on the final day to notch his second career win in the legendary event. In addition, Team Arctic racers took seven of the top-10 places in Pro 600, with Cody Kallock (fourth), Ben Langaas (fifth), Timmy Kallock (seventh), Chad Lian (eighth) and Nick Fischer (ninth) scoring outstanding finishes.

Brian Dick also captured the Pro Open win at the I-500. Ben Langaas and Kevin Tinjum joined him as two-class winners at the event. Team Arctic won 14 of 17 classes at the I-500 and captured 32 of 51 possible podium positions, including a 1-2-3 sweep in five classes, underscoring racer talent and the performance of the ZR 6000R, ZR 6000RR and Sno Pro 500 machines.

“Our racers and crews delivered a phenomenal performance at the I-500,” said Race Manager Mike Kloety. “In a race infamous for its unpredictability, our racers and snowmobiles proved fast and consistent in the brutally rough conditions that challenged them over three days and 500 miles. We’re proud of all the Team Arctic racers who challenged themselves in this great race.”

At the ISOC double-header in Salamanca, NY, Team Arctic’s Tucker Hibbert once again delivered a crushing performance to win both Pro Open finals in convincing fashion. Trent Wittwer and Carson Alread joined Hibbert with two class victories apiece, while Marica Renheim continued her undefeated season in Women Pro AM. Team Arctic owned the Sport class in New York, with Montana Jess winning the first night and Travis Kern taking the second.

“Our snocross racers and teams have worked hard and the pros finished a marathon three-week road trip that began before the X Games and finished in New York,” said Kloety. “The New York results are fantastic and we’re proud of the effort given by our racers and teams. Their success in all the classes proves that Team Arctic is strong. “The only disappointment was that, after scoring his first National win on Friday, Montana Jess suffered a season-ending hand injury after a competitor’s sled landed on him. Our best wishes go to Montana.”

The next national events for Team Arctic are the USXC Park Rapids 100 on Feb. 22-23 in Park Rapids, Minn., and the ISOC National Snocross in Mt. Pleasant, Mich., Feb. 21-22.

Ryan Simons Captures I-500 Victory; Tucker Hibbert Sweeps Michigan ISOC Snocross; Six Wins in RMSHA Hillclimb

Team Arctic racers and crews continued the magnificent history and tradition of the I-500 cross-country snowmobile race, capturing 13 wins in 16 classes including victory by Ryan Simons in the prestigious Pro 600 event. The three-day, 500-mile cross-country event in Thief River Falls proved both challenging and reflective of history, with rugged ditch and winding rivers testing the fortitude and speed of racers and machines.

Racing for the Christian Brothers Racing team, Ryan Simons delivered a blistering pace, setting the fastest time each of the three days en route to his first win in the I-500. Team Arctic’s Cody Kallock notched his first I-500 podium finish in the Pro 600 class, taking third, with Wes Selby, Cole Nymann, Nathan Moritz and Jordan Torgerson rounding out the top-10.

Numerous stand-out performances highlighted this year’s I-500, including Cole Nymann winning the Semi Pro 600 class with seven Team Arctic teammates in the top-10; and Mason Kallock leading a Team Arctic top-10 sweep of the first-ever Junior 12-17 class to conquer the famous event.

Race Manager Mike Kloety reflected on the success of the team while acknowledging the disappointment that always affects racers who weren’t able to finish: “Winning 13 of 16 classes in the I-500 highlights Arctic Cat’s commitment to build the best snowmobiles in the world as well as the dedication of our great team of riders and crews. Yet it’s also true that there’s room for improvement. What we learn with the ProCross Sno Pro race sleds is used to improve both our race and consumer snowmobiles.”

While Team Green racers cleaned up at the I-500, Team Arctic/Monster Energy sensation Tucker Hibbert swept the Pro Open finals at the ISOC National Snocross race in Traverse City, Mich., claiming his sixth and seventh wins (out of 10 finals) already this season. Hibbert went undefeated in his heats and finals to continue his class domination aboard the ProCross Sno Pro 600. Josh Zelinski, Carson Alread and Cora Hauger also notched class wins for Team Arctic in Traverse City.

And at the first Rocky Mountain Hillclimb event of the season in Montpelier, Idaho, Team Arctic’s Mountain Team scored six wins. Congratulations to all Team Arctic racers on another successful weekend of racing.

It was a gold-medal weekend for Team Arctic Racing, with emphatic wins by Tucker Hibbert at the ESPN X Games and another dominating performance by the team in USXC cross-country.

Hibbert’s historic seventh gold was also his sixth in a row, the first X Games athlete to achieve this feat. When the then-15-year-old catapult himself into the world spotlight by winning his first X Games gold in the year 2000, it was clear that Hibbert was destined for further snocross greatness. Including his seven gold medals, Hibbert has won 11 medals in his X Games career.

Team Arctic racers Derek Ellis and Logan Christian earned eighth and 14th finishes in the Snocross final; Cory Davis took a silver medal in Speed & Style, a fourth in Best Trick and fifth in Freestyle; and Chris Heppding scored seventh in Snocross Adaptive.

For the first time this season in the USXC cross-country circuit, racers moved off of the lakes and onto ditch and river at the Oslo Merchants 100 in Oslo, Minn. The racers and their Arctic Cat Sno Pro 600 and Sno Pro 500 machines proved equally dominant in the rough conditions, scoring wins in 17 of 20 classes including eight podium sweeps.

For the second time this season, Team Arctic Cat/Christian Brothers Racing champion Ryan Simons swept the Pro 600 and Pro Open classes at a single event, with his teammates Zach Herfindahl and Brian Dick taking second and third in the stock final. With help from pro teammates Wes Selby and Cody Kallock, Team Arctic took five of the top-10 places in both Pro events.

“It was another great weekend for Team Arctic,” commented Race Manager Mike Kloety. “Tucker’s dominant performance at the X Games highlights the effort he and his team put into that event. And our success at the Oslo cross-country proves that our ProCross sleds are every bit as dominant in the rough stuff as they are on the lakes.”

The next national events for Team Arctic are the ISOC snocross race      in Deadwood, S.D., Feb. 1-2, and the USXC I-500 in Thief River Falls   Feb. 7-9.
