Press Release –
Demoralizing. That describes Western hillclimb competition for anyone not on an Arctic Cat M Series. Team Arctic’s dominance reached epic proportions at the RMSHA Pebble Creek race in Pocatello, Idaho,
Fresh off of winning 15 World Championship titles at the Jackson Hole Hillclimb, Team Arctic racers hit Pebble Creek with overwhelming confidence and unmatched firepower to win 13 classes and three King titles while destroying any shred of hope the competition may have held onto.
“That was the most impressive performance of any team that I can remember,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “Even more remarkable is the team’s depth, with seven different racers notching wins. There’s no arguing that we have the best combination of racers and snowmobiles.”
The results tell the story, with Team Arctic sweeping the Stock, Improved and Mod classes in the 600, 800 and 1000cc engine categories, usually with a teammate taking second in each class.
Likewise, Team Arctic swept all three of the Women’s classes, while the men put an exclamation point on the weekend by winning the Stock, Improved and Mod King competition. The M8 HCR went undefeated in the 800 Stock, Improved and Mod classes, as well as taking the three King titles.
“Our M Series sleds have run roughshod over the competition all season long,” said Kloety. “With our powered-up, 160-hp 800HO engine coming next season, we’re going straight for their jugulars.”
With one race remaining in the RMSHA season (April 10, in Logan, Utah), Team Arctic racers are set to deliver a final knockout punch. Go to www.rmsha.com for more information.
