TEAM ARCTIC WINS MORE IN DEADWOOD AND PARK RAPIDS

7-13-06

Team Arctic snocross and cross-country racers hit the bullseye at national events in Deadwood, SD, and Park Rapids, Minn., capturing more wins and more podiums than any other brand.

Team Green kept their leadership position intact at the ISOC snocross national in Deadwood, where they won 7 of 15 classes while notching 20 of 45 podium positions, the most of any brand. Tucker Hibbert delivered one of the most memorable performances in snocross history, coming from last place to win the Pro Open #2 final, his 100th career Pro National victory.

Other top Team Arctic performances include Dan Benham’s two wins in Sport; Trent Wittwer and Kaden Woodie swapping wins in the Amateur classes; Tyler Adams’s pair of seconds in Pro Lite; Eric Downs’s win in Jr. Novice and Brandon Nelson’s win in Transition.

7-13-06While Team Green snocrossers were shooting them down in Deadwood, the cross-country corps stamped out any battle that might have occurred in Park Rapids, taking 13 of 19 class victories and 37 of 56 podium positions, including eight podium sweeps.

For the first time in his short cross-country career, Wes Selby achieved victory in the hotly contested Pro Stock class, while his teammate Zach Herfindahl led a sweep of the Pro Open final. Team Arctic proved its depth and talent with eleven different class winners, including: Lance Efteland, Dylan Stevens, Todd Frischmon, Hunter Houle, Ean Voigt, Steve Martinson, Tyler Brown, Savannah Landrus and Keaton Black.

“Our racers and teams are truly exceptional,” said Mike Kloety. “This past weekend was historic on so many levels, from the number of wins and podium finishes, to the key victories that define careers. We couldn’t be more proud of our racers, or the snowmobiles they ride.”

The next stop on the 2015 ISOC National schedule is Feb. 6-7 in Salamanca, NY. The next USXC cross-country Feb. 28 – March 1 in Thief River Falls, Minn. The Soo International 500 enduro begins this week, with the premier-class final on Feb. 6.

TEAM ARCTIC’S DEPTH SHOWS WITH A 23-WIN WEEKEND IN TERRAIN COMPETITION

Team Arctic terrain racers showed their mettle and strength during a dramatic week that saw 23 victories and gutsy performances aboard the Arctic Cat ZR 6000R ProCross and Sno Pro snowmobiles.

The season-long onslaught continued at the USXC cross-country race at the two-day, combined-points event in Park Rapids, Minn., where Team Arctic racers notched 16 class wins, including a full sweep of the podium in seven classes. Christian Bros. Racing pro Zach Herfindahl led the charge with a win in the Pro Open and then shrugged off a broken thumb suffered in the Pro Stock class during the first day to finish second overall for the weekend and retain his championship point’s lead.

Proving the depth of Team Arctic’s cross-country contingent, 16 different racers scored a win in Park Rapids, including Cole Nymann who led a team sweep of the Semi Pro 600 stock class.

Similar success highlighted the ISOC national snocross in Mt. Pleasant, Mich., where Team Arctic racers recorded seven class wins. Tucker Hibbert continued his historic run in the Pro Open class, sweeping another weekend of competition. He was joined on the podium by factory Team Arctic pro Cody Thomsen, who scored a second and fourth during the two rounds. Logan Christian also scored a pair of fifth place finishes on the weekend, putting three Arctic Cat riders in the top-5 of the premier class.

Trent Wittwer and Carson Alread joined Hibbert with double-victories at Mt. Pleasant, with Wittwer sweeping the Junior classes and Alread leading podium sweeps in the Jr. Novice and Transition classes.

Five Team Arctic teams contested and finished the brutal 2,000-mile Iron Dog in Alaska, where low snow conditions and tough luck challenged the two-person teams and their chance for overall victory. A spectator’s errant move onto the course caused a tough first-day crash for Pro contenders Brian Dick and Eric Quam. They rebounded to salvage a fifth place finish while the Christian Bros. Racing team of Ryan Simons and Cory Davis soldiered to a ninth-place finish following a broken track midway through the grueling event.

“We’re extremely proud of all the Team Arctic racers, crews and teams, and we’re thrilled with all the wins and top finishes this past week,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager.

The next USXC event is March 1 in Warroad, MN, with an ISOC national March 7-8 in Fargo, ND.
