Press Release –
Team Polaris Racing followed up their dominating season of a year ago, with another one for the record books.
Armed with the durable, smooth-handling Polaris IQ® race sled, Polaris pilots nabbed more Pro podium finishes that any other brand competing on the 2005-2006 WPSA snocross circuit.
Polaris racers also won two WPSA individual honors and finished second in both Pro classes.
Not to be outdone, Polaris racers in cross-country racing won more U.S. Cross-Country (USCC) Pro events than racers on any other brand, and in the high-profile ESPN Winter X Games, Polaris racers earned silver and bronze medals.
“We’d like to have won the WPSA Pro titles, but we’re pleased with our progress, our depth and the outstanding performance of the IQ Chassis,” said Polaris Racing Manager Tom Rager, Sr. “Ross Martin continues to develop into a strong racer and we think he’s got a very bright future. Dennis Eckstrom, Levi LaVallee, TJ Gulla and Mike Schultz all had strong seasons as well, and we feel we have a great foundation to build on so we can shoot for the points titles next winter.”
Polaris racers on Polaris IQ sleds earned 40% of all the Pro-class podium spots available during the 2005-2006 World PowerSports Association (WPSA) season.
Their strong showing included seven Pro victories and sweeps of the top three Pro Open spots at two events.
