Team Arctic’s Travis Audorff of Chippewa Falls, Wis., laid claim to a Semi Pro Stock World Championship title in IWA snowmobile watercross, going 1-1-1 in the heats then winning the final for an undefeated performance at the annual Grantsburg, Wis., shindig.
In the Pro classes, perennial watercross top cat Dale Lindbeck scored a second in Pro Stock and third in Pro Open to keep himself and Arctic Cat on the podium for the 78th (or close to it) year in a row.
Congrats Travis, Dale and all of the other Team Arctic watercrossers!
Snowmobile adventurer… folk hero… drug smuggler… on the FBI’s Most Wanted List… there’s a lot to be intrigued about Bill Cooper. For those who can make it to the Duluth, Minn., area tonight, there’s a screening of the documentary film “Wild Bill’s Run.” It’s about Cooper, a highly enigmatic character who led the Trans-world Snowmobile Exhibition in the early 1970s before a drug-deal-gone-wrong led to an FBI manhunt and his disappearance.
“Wild Bill’s Run” plays at 7:35 p.m. tonight at the Free Range Film Festival in Wrenshall, Minn. I plan to be there!
The Snowmobile Hall of Fame threw down a sweet Independence Day display in its hometown of St. Germain, Wis. Commemorating the upcoming 50th Anniversary of the Eagle River World’s Championship, the float included one of P.J. Wanderscheid’s Derby-winning Arctic Cats. Look for more 50th displays and focus from the SHOF throughout the next year.
