Team Arctic cross-country proved what terrain domination really means during their 14-victory performance at the USXC Warroad 100. Competing in deep snow conditions ranging from ditch, lakes and river aboard ZR 6000R XC and ZR 4000RR snowmobiles in the ProCross chassis, Team Green claimed 14 wins out of 19 classes, 39 out of 57 podium positions and ended the season with 15 of 20 class high point championship titles.

The competition-crushing performance was led by Zach Herfindahl, who claimed two emphatic wins en rout to championship titles in Pro Stock and Pro Open, edging out teammate Wes Selby for high point honors. Class-rookie Ryan Trout notched his first victory of the season in Semi Pro Stock, while Timmy Kallock took the Semi Pro Improved win and championship title. Additional class winners in Warroad include Brandon Wolter, Nathan Sillerud, Mike Lenarz, Mike Dirkman, Jolene Bute, Ross Ilstrup, Hunter Houle, Blair Herfindahl and Savannah Landrus.

Team Arctic’s 2015 USXC high point champions include Zach Herfindahl (Pro Stock, Pro Open); Lance Efteland (Semi Pro Stock); Timmy Kallock (Semi Pro Improved); Jeremy Grove (Expert 85, Expert 85 Improved); Mike Dirkman (Masters 40 Plus); Brandon Wolter (Sport 85); Ean Voigt (Trail); Savannah Landrus (Junior Girls); Hunter Houle (Junior 14-17); Keaton Black (Junior 10-13); Steve Martinson (Classic IFS); Jesse Watland (Vintage) and Gerry Mattison (Vintage 50 Plus).

“We couldn’t be happier and more proud of our racers and crews who dominated Warroad as well as the entire USXC cross-country season,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “Their talent and hard work combined with our ProCross ZR snowmobiles delivered twice as many wins and championship titles as all other brands combined.”

Team Arctic hillclimb racers conquered the RMSHA White Pine event in Pinedale, Wyo., with five class wins and 14 podium finishes aboard Arctic Cat M Series snowmobiles with the ProClimb chassis. The top finishes occurred in a range of categories and engine classes, proving the versatility and range of the machines along with the expertise and preparation of the racers and crews.

Wes Selby continued his victory parade by winning the hard-fought Pro Stock class.

“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.”

TEAM ARCTIC WRAPS UP LAKE GENEVA SNOCROSS AND TERRAIN CHAMPIONSHIPS

teamarcticlogo-green

When the checkered flag flew to end the 2014 ISOC National snocross season in Lake Geneva, Wis., Team Arctic stood atop the podium with seven class wins, two class championships and a podium place in each of the five championship points classes.

As the final event of ISOC National season, Lake Geneva saw another historic crushing of the Pro classes by Tucker Hibbert and Marica Renheim. Hibbert was victorious each of the three Pro Open finals, bringing his season win total to 15 out of 17 possible. Marica Renheim was equally impressive, staying undefeated in season finals to record her eighth win. In fact, Renheim lost only once the entire season: a heat race at the season-opener in Duluth.

“Tucker and Marica’s performances this season set a new standard,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “What makes their phenomenal win records even more honorable is the fact that both are great people and excellent ambassadors for snowmobiling.”

Having dominated their classes all season, Hibbert and Renheim also claimed their respective ISOC high point championship titles. In addition, Corey Watkinson capped an excellent season in Pro Lite with a third place overall title. Josh Zelinski did the same in Pro Am 30 Plus. And Travis Kern graciously accepted his second place point title in Sport despite being crashed out of the championship title by another racer at Lake Geneva while Kern was in third place, just two corners before the finish line.

Team Arctic’s contingent of USXC cross-country racers cleaned house in the season championship points war, taking the title in 16 classes including eight podium sweeps and 42 out of 60 championship podium positions. Zach Herfindahl capped his remarkable sophomore season in the Pro class by winning the Pro Stock championship and taking a close second in the Pro Open chase. Jolene Bute won yet another Women’s class championship. And Jon Arneson captured three class championships, including the tough-fought Semi Pro Stock and all-new Super Stock classes.

“The team’s performance in cross-country racing is unmatched in the sport,” said Kloety, and then added; “We dominated at the top end in the Pro and Semi Pro classes, as well as in the Junior, Sport and Expert 85 classes. Team Arctic’s current and future talent is exceptional, with class winners like Hunter Houle, Ryan Trout, Jon Langaas and many others pointing to dominance for years to come. I thank all of our snocross and cross-country racers, teams, crews and families for their dedication and excellence on behalf of everyone at Arctic Cat. It’s our greatest honor to build and support the snowmobiles that you race, and we’re grateful for your efforts.”

Team Arctic Sweeps Pro Classes in Bessemer, Michigan

Team Arctic Logo-2013Arctic Cat returned to the top of the snocross scoreboard during the third and fourth round of the ISOC series in Bessemer, Michigan, where Team Arctic racers scored nine class victories in the combined National/Regional event. Leading the charge once again was the indomitable Tucker Hibbert, whose sweep of the Pro Open classes was as powerful as it was complete.

“That was the kind of Pro class domination that only Tucker is capable of,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “He won the first final with a  35-second margin of victory, and the second final with an 11-second margin. He firmly reestablished himself and the new 2013 Arctic Cat ProCross Sno Pro 600 as the ones to beat.”

Bolstering Team Arctic’s performance in the top classes in Bessemer were Joshua Zelinski and Matt Pichner. Zelinski scored a first and a third in the two Pro Am Plus 30 finals, while Matt Pichner took a bittersweet fourth in Pro Lite after having led for several laps. Also landing a strong performance in Bessemer was Travis Kern, who scored a third in Sport at the national event and a third in Pro Lite during the regional competition.

In other classes, both Trent Wittwer and Evan Christian scored two wins apiece, while Ryan Trout and Ian Eboy Buchman nearly notched doubles of their own. And of the nine class finals won by Team Arctic racers, four were full podium sweeps.

“We had a great weekend in Michigan and our new Sno Pro 600 with the ProCross chassis is working excellent,” said Kloety. “What we need now is for some of our racers to log some seat time before the next race, since many of them hadn’t ridden since the opener in Duluth.

The next ISOC National Snocross is Jan. 4-5, 2013, at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn.
