The days are shorter, nights are colder and the smell of race fuel is in the air.
This can only mean one thing, the snowcross season is among us and the Supertrax/ Polaris/ Byers Motorsports team is ready!
The team has spent the past week at Planet X testing facility in Aurora, Minnesota putting laps on the new 2014 Polaris 600 IQ race sleds getting them set-up for competition.
Jamie Byers is returning again this season with his primary focus competing for the #1 plate in the CSRA National Circuit in the Pro-Open class.
As well as the CSRA Nationals, Jamie will also be competing at select ISOC National events across the USA in the Pro-Lite division.
“It feels great to be back on the sleds and the ’14 IQ racer is better than ever. The improvements made by the Polaris Race Department are very noticeable and will be beneficial this season.” Jamie said after testing. “I can’t wait to get out on the track in competition and bang some bars with other racers.”
Before driving back to Canada for the CSRA Season Opener in Sault Ste. Marie December 13-14, the team will be attending the ISOC Season Opener in Duluth, Minnesota.
The Duluth Opener is one of the biggest, most anticipated events in snowmobiling, attracting riders from all circuits and across the world to kick-off the snowcross season.
Returning as Title sponsors this season are Supertrax Magazine and Byers Equipment Motorsports. Dayco is also returning as the Official Belt of Byers Motorsports and Amsoil as the Official Oil. We would like to welcome EVS Sports and CV Tech AAB to the team along with our returning sponsors: Polaris, Gamma Sales, Fly Racing, Coldwave, Dragon, Woody’s Traction, Creecher’s Design, Clean Media and Powermadd.
