Press Release -
CHRISTIAN BROS. RACING STRONG AT EASTERN NATIONALS
Top Finishes and a Successful Foray into Pro Racing for Logan Christian
Fertile, Minn. (Feb. 10, 2010) – The Christian Bros. Racing team rolled into Farmington, NY, for the ISOC Eastern Nationals snocross, ready to resume their goal of standing on the podium.
The first National race since the X Games and the first of three eastern events, the Farmington venue proved successful for the CBR team. Leading the charge was Logan Christian who, in addition to his usual Semi Pro-class competitiveness, jumped into the Pro Stock class to test himself against the world’s best.
With strong fitness and great speed, Logan made it to the Pro Stock final, where he finished a very-respectable seventh-place. He backed it up with a third and fourth in Semi Pro Stock and Open finals, and in the process earned “Ironman” status for competing three classes.
The cadre of CBR Pro racers shared in the team's success in New York, with Garth Kaufman rebounding from his recent tough luck to take fourth in Pro Stock and 13th in Pro Open.
X Games bronze medalist Ryan Simons parlayed his amazing speed to make a run in the Pro Stock final. He was running hard in second place until a blown belt took him out of the action. Simons also scored a 10th in Pro Open.
Cory Davis and Zach Patty also made it to one Pro final each, showing the depth of the team's talent.
The team’s next snocross race is at the ISOC New England Nationals, Feb. 12-14, at Rockingham Park in Salem, NH. The cross-country CBR crew will compete in USCC events in Grand Forks (Feb. 13) and Fargo (Feb. 14). Follow their progress at www.christianbrosracing.com.
