Robbie Malinoski has signed to race – you guessed it – for Team Polaris with the legendary Scheuring Speed Sports team.
On top of this announcement comes word Hentges Racing and Judnick Motorsports, top Polaris factory backed teams, will share R&D responsibilities, component manufacturing and in-season development chores.
Polaris racing czar Tom Rager Sr., the man who turned Polaris Sno-X fortunes into pure gold, appears bolstered entering this season’s ISOC schedule. Under Rager’s leadership, in concert with son, Tom Jr, Polaris has gone from “also ran” status less than a decade ago to a virtually unbeatable championship machine.
We wonder if this move for Malinoski, who appeared less than inspired last year on Ski-Doo in his final season with Boss Racing, will return back to championship form.
Other than scoring the first WPSA National Sno-X win for a 4-stroke sled (Yamaha), the strong-as-an-ox Canadian has not seen significant success since he left Arctic Cat earlier this decade.
This move completes a full circle for Malinoski who has held contracts with all other factory camps over the past five seasons.
