Press Release-

TEAM ARCTIC WINS MORE AT USXC CROSS-COUNTRY IN GRAFTON, ND

Team Green Wins 11 of 17 Classes in Classic Ditch Race; European Snocrossers Win Arctic Cat Cup

Team Arctic cross-country racers dominated the first ditch and river race of the season, scoring 11 wins in 17 classes at the USXC cross-country in Grafton, ND, aboard their ZR 6000R XC and ZR 4000RR race sleds. When the results were tallied, Team Green captured 32 of 51 podium positions, including four podium sweeps. 

For the second race in a row Zach Herfindahl proved the best of the best, winning the two-hour, 120-mile Pro Stock final on a wildly rough course. In addition, Herfindahl and teammate Wes Selby finished 2-3 in the Pro Open class.

Other Team Arctic winners aboard the C-TEC2 600 DSI-powered ZR 6000R XC included Jolene Bute, Mike Dirkman, Mason Kallock, Logan Kilichowski and Savannah Landrus. In the 85-hp classes, Jeremy Grove and Nathan Sillerud swapped wins in the Expert categories; Logan Kilichowski took a second win in Jr. 14-17, with Brandon Wolter and David Brown also taking class wins.

“Grafton was the first ditch and river race of the cross-country season and the conditions were brutal, with 3-4-ft. moguls throughout,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “It was a challenge for the racers and their equipment, so to win 65 percent of the classes and capture more than 60 percent of all the podium positions speaks volumes about the dedication of our racers and crews, as well as our ProCross-chassis snowmobiles.

This past weekend also marked the 43rd running of Sweden’s Arctic Cat Cup, the longest running and most prestigious snocross event in Europe, where Team Arctic’s Petter Narsa and Filip Eriksson finished first and third in Pro Open, and with teammates Martin Moland and Alexander Berglund finishing first and third in Pro Stock.

The next stop on the 2015 USXC cross-country schedule is Jan. 31 – Feb. 1, 2015, in Park Rapids, MN.
