Because...Hay Days: A 2017 Photo Tribute


(9/15/2017)

You name it, and it was at Hay Days: snowmobiles, racers, races, ATVs, legends, fans, winter, summer, mud, food, greatness, grossness, old car tires and more.

It is an amalgamation of nearly everything that touches any aspect of snowmobiling, with just enough weirdness.

Because...Hay Days.

The 1pm new-sled unveiling is always a big draw in the Arctic Cat booth. Two heavily re-worked ZR 6000R race sleds were the new machines this year.

Grass drag racing was the original big-draw. Still love the action, and Arctic Cat kicked ass (again), winning 11 of 20 classes.

The swap: it's still the best entertainment you'll find, and a source of continual wonderment.

Drove up from Fort Worth for another great time at Hay Days. Walked the entire swap with Leubner, bought a bunch of cool stuff including an 80's Cat Clothing clock for the shop.

Somehow got lucky and missed you at the Cat booth while checking out the new hardware and race sleds, but had an awesome chat with Don Eidie.

Tom Rowland had a sweet 2017 ZR600 RS demo on display. He is a bad influence. Very, very bad influence ;>)

Can't wait for next year... -JDJR
