Press Release –
With over four decades of experience in racing and developing snowmobiles, Team Arctic Race Manager, Russ Ebert has announced that he will be transitioning to a new role within the walls of Arctic Cats engineering department.
In two race seasons, Team Arctic racers benefited immediately from his knowledge, patience, experience and hands-on involvement as Race Manager.
Although he won’t admit he’s responsible, in his short two year term, Ebert amassed a trophy case that could fill the entire race shop; including multitudes of snocross podium wins, two X Games titles and various snocross championships in several classes.
On top of that, other weekend-after-weekend wins and championships stacked up in Hillclimb, Oval and Cross Country competition.
Russ had this to say, “At the end of the day, I wanted to lead Team Arctic to victory. I think we were very successful in doing so last year, as well as this year. I’m proud to say our Team Arctic racers are top notch and I’m very proud of them. They give it their all, and that’s all I can ask for!”
In his new developmental role, Ebert will continue to focus his passion of being a “hands-on guy” as he continues improving the already potent Sno Pro 600.
“Team Arctic racing will always be in my blood, and I really enjoy getting my hands dirty by providing the best equipment to racers. For a first year race sled, the Sno Pro 600 proved its durability, and I’m fortunate enough to help make it the ultimate race weapon for next season!”
Ebert won’t be confined to engineering, as he will also be on hand as a Team Arctic ambassador at several 2008-09 National and Regional snowmobile races.
An announcement will be made shortly of Ebert’s replacement as Team Arctic Race Manager.
