Press Release-

ARCTIC CAT SPONSORS USXC RACING

Team Arctic Terrain Racers Set to Compete

Arctic Cat is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the recently-formed United States X-Country (USXC), a premier cross-country snowmobile racing circuit that will provide a series of terrain races in the Midwest during the 2012-2013 season.

USXC owner Brian Nelson formed the cross-country race organization after decades as a competitor, including twice winning the I-500.

As a decorated cross-country racer, Nelson said, “Cross-country snowmobile racing has been my life for more than 40 years, and during that time there have been many great people and circuits that provided an outlet for cross-country racers. Starting USXC is my way to give back to the sport I love and preserve a quickly growing form of snowmobile racing.”

The USXC series will consist of six to eight events, including a premier three-day, 500-mile cross-country race held in Northwestern Minnesota.

Team Arctic Race Manager, Mike Kloety said, “We are looking forward to running the USXC events this winter. Brian Nelson has an undeniable passion for cross-country racing and we know he will work tirelessly to grow this segment of snowmobile racing.”

I went to the USXC site a few days ago and registered. It was quick and easy, and, cheaper in September vs October. I have never raced cross country in my life but want to try it a time or two this season. Now I have to decide if I should run a Sno Pro 500, or, a 1979 El Tigre?
