These honorees will be inducted into the SHOF during a two-day induction ceremony weekend, February 12-13, 2021 in St. Germain, coinciding with the 38th Annual Ride With The Champs and other events, presented by Livingston’s Arctic Cat. All snowmobile enthusiasts and race fans are invited. 

Brian Sturgeon


Team Arctic’s Brian Sturgeon of Thief River Falls, MN, achieved remarkable success in snowmobile oval and terrain competitions. In ovals, Sturgeon won 12 Eagle River World Championship class titles, including the Formula III win in 1995. He also earned nine USSA High Point Championships, including eight in Stock classes and one in Formula III. In ice lemans he won two MRP Formula III high-point championship and World Series titles, and he scored two snocross Pro Class wins at the Duluth National. He was awarded Racer of the Year honors by Snow Week magazine, SnoWest magazine, and MIRA. After retiring from racing, Sturgeon became the Arctic Cat Race Manager beginning in 1999.

A legend! I look forward to hearing your induction speech Brian. If there is only one event you go to this winter, attend the Ride With the Champs weekend. Its a whole lot of fun. Great ceremony, celebrity snowmobile guests and the St. Germain area always pleases when it comes to riding.

Great racer and most deserving of being a true Hall of Famer. Congratulations Brian, on a memorable racing career, I'm sure his blood runs GREEN.

Congrats much Brian. So well deserved and even a little over due. I am a Ski-doo guy who admired the heck watching you at Eagle River for several years and more than once said "Brian is killing oval racing - you have to let the other guys win once in a while".

I was so impressed watching you on the ZR's I mentioned several times to some of my friends at the HOF that its time you are inducted. I think they already knew that but I will pat myself on the back for reminding them. Now, if I could only get Mickey Rupp in the HOF.
