The official kickoff to winter took place this past weekend at the 46th annual Haydays Grass Drags in North Branch, Mn. and Arctic Cat consumers were given plenty to brag about.
If there ever was a doubt as to which manufacturer has the World’s Fastest Snowmobiles, Arctic Cat proved it on the race track. The majority of all class finals paired Cat against Cat across four lanes of the track.
Team Arctic drag race coordinator, Al Shimpa said, “Team Arctic racers definitely gave Cat fans something to brag about this weekend. We blew by the competition like they were standing still. It was the text book definition of domination and something we are truly proud of!”
One of the most exciting class finals took place in Stock 1000 when four 2013 ProCross XF800s crossed the finish line so close, that the results had to be decided via the timing light system. After examination, a first place tie resulted between Matt Lemire and Jeff Marks.
Shimpa said, “Winners are crowned as a result of adding together their Reaction Time and their Elapsed Time (RT+ET=Result). A tie for first place rarely happens; this was truly spectacular!”
