Press Release –
In any language, on any continent, Polaris stands for “Winning Performance”. This past season it was proven again as Polaris captured the Stock 440 title won by Marcus Evensson aboard his Polaris IQ® race sled in the 2007 Swedish Championship.
Evensson’s victory was the fifth in a row by a Polaris racer in the Pro 440 class at the Swedish Championships. Two of those titles (2003 and 2006) were won by Polaris racer Johan Eriksson, who battled through mid-season injuries this past winter to finish fourth in Pro 600 points on the Swedish circuit. Eriksson also competed in the Winter X Games in Colorado in late January.
Racers were tested by a demanding race course in this season’s Swedish Championships, and Evensson used the performance, durability and quick handling of his IQ racer to his full advantage. He won the first race in the 440 competition, and then ran smart and strong to finish third in the second race, which allowed him to clinch the title.
Evensson’s title is the fourth Pro snocross title of the 2006-07 season for Polaris racers. In WPSA PowerSports racing, Ross Martin (Judnick Motorsports) ran away with the Pro Open title, TJ Gulla (Hentges Racing) won the Pro Stock championship, and Kylie Abrahamson won the Pro Women’s title.
