The World Snowmobile Association U.S. Air Force Buffalo National went off with sunny skies and mild temperatures. It was a perfect day for snocross at Ralph Wilson Stadium and a good crowd was on hand to watch from the stadium’s seats.
Like the day before, fans and racer were treated to instant replays and interviews on the stadium’s jumbotron screens, insuring none of the action was missed.
After winning the U.S. Air Force Pro Open class the day before as part of the WSA Eastern National, Warnert Racing rider Steve Martin (Formula XP-S Ski-Doo) made the weekend a perfect one taking victory in Pro Open again on Sunday.
Martin was the top qualifier for the final and when the green flag flew he rocketed off the line, nabbing the Camoplast Holeshot Award once again. D.J. Eckstrom (Red Bull/Amsoil Polaris) and T.J. Gulla (TEAM Industries Polaris) slotted in behind Martin.
Martin set a blistering pace and five laps into the race he was into lapped traffic. The lappers slowed him down, but they also slowed second place rider Eckstrom down and he couldn’t make up ground on Martin, who rode away with the win.
Eckstrom took second followed by Gulla and Robbie Malinoski (Woody’s Arctic Cat). Martin has the lead in Pro Open points with 439 followed by Eckstrom (417), Malinoski (414), Carl Kuster (407) and Tomi Ahmasalo (394).
