Cross-Country Domination in USCC; Top Finishes at ISOC Hayward Snocross
Team Arctic cross-country racers concluded their remarkable season at the USCC Warroad 100 in Warroad, Minn., winning 10 classes and taking 14 of 18 class championship titles to rewrite what “terrain domination” truly means.
From top-to-bottom and everywhere in between, Team Arctic racers, crew and Sno Pro race sleds left no doubt about which brand owns the rugged terrain that defines cross-country competition. The championship points tell the story:
Arctic Cat engineer/racer Brian Dick led a top-four sweep (and seven of the top-10) of the Pro 600 points, while his teammate D.J. Ekre took his second consecutive Pro Open championship. Team Arctic notched seven of the top-10 in Semi Pro 600, the top-12 positions in Expert 85, the top-25 in Sport 85 and the top-19 in Junior class points.
“I’ve had the fortune of witnessing Team Arctic dominate cross-country for nearly two decades, but I’ve never seen anything like this season,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “On behalf of everyone at Arctic Cat, I’d like to congratulate everyone who raced on our team this season, with a special nod to the 14 class champions.”
As Team Arctic’s cross-country contingent crushed the competition in Warroad, the snocrossers delivered a solid performance at the ISOC Hayward 300 National in Wisconsin, notching eight podium finishes.
Team Arctic snocross racers will compete in the final round of the ISOC National Series at Nielsen Enterprises event in Lake Geneva, Wis., March 19-21. Team Arctic Hillclimb racers will compete at the Wisdom, Mont., RMSHA event.
