Press Release –
Victory in Three Classes at ISOC’s Milwaukee Mile National
Round two of the ISOC National Snocross season brought Team Arctic to the famed Milwaukee Mile and a crowd estimated at 15,000.
The team responded with historic wins of their own, taking Pro classes, Semi Pro Stock and Jr. 14-15, as well as top finishes in all classes.
“Team Arctic has a long and storied tradition at the Milwaukee Mile, going all the way back to Dave Thompson’s historic oval win in 1973,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “To return here and win four classes was a highlight for our team and our fans.”
Team Arctic/Monster Energy phenom Tucker Hibbert continued his unbeaten march in the Pro classes, thrilling race fans with come-from-behind wins and his nearly flawless combination of speed and talent. The victories marked career wins #49 and #50 for Hibbert.
As was the case the week prior at Duluth, Team Arctic/Christian Bros. Racing stalwart Garth Kaufman shrugged off a poor start in the Pro Stock final, picked off racers on every lap and put himself into third place with the most exciting run of the weekend.
For the first time in his young career, Team Arctic/Christian Bros. Racing’s Logan Christian scored victory in the Semi Pro class, winning the Stock #2 final after a tough battle with Factory Team Arctic’s Cody Thomsen and Kyle Pallin.
Christian also took third in the Semi Pro Open which, combined with his finishes the week prior, put him and Thomsen on a path towards the season point championships. Likewise, Pallin’s second place in both Semi Pro Stock classes underscores his consistency, and the strong likelihood he’ll stand atop the podium yet this season.
“We’re two races into the season and already we’re in a great position for our championship hopes in Pro, Semi Pro and the Sport classes,” said Kloety. “Our Sno Pro 600 is practically bulletproof, our racers are on top and we head into the holiday break with no significant injuries.”
The next race in the ISOC National Snocross Series is Jan. 8-9 in Sandy, Utah. Go to www.isocracing.com for more information.
