(6/25/2012)

Stephanie Getz "Arctic Cat" Soap Box Derby Car

After enjoying an awesome experience at the Arctic Cat 50th Anniversary Celebration last summer, Andy Getz and his daughter Stephanie from North Canton, Ohio, decided to create an Arctic Cat soap box derby car. Andy owns an automobile body shop and you can see by the quality of the car that he's a professional.

Andy started snowmobiling 1979 on a 1972 Johnson Skee-Horse (the only sled he's ever owned  that wasn't an Arctic Cat) and road his first Arctic Cat in 1980 (a 1979 El Tigre  6000).  The Getz family been sledding since Stephanie was 4 years old and riding ZR120. Now now she rides a 1981 Jag 4000 with 360 miles on it. 

They currently own 16 sleds: the original '72 Skee-Horse; two Arctic Cat Jags; an Arctic Cat F6 Sno Pro; ZR 600; ZR120 and an assortment of 1979-84 El Tigre 6000's and 5000's, including a prototype '82! And they have a 2013 XF 1100 on order from Gellner's Arctic Cat.

Way to go Stephanie! Always good to see the green and black out front! All you need now is an Arctic Insider sticker and that bad boy will really fly. Good Luck!

For the parents that have never spent quality time with their children, especially in competition, you have missed out on a feeling that words can not describe!

I'm sure that Andy is sticking his chest out as a very proud parent should!

Good luck Steph on your next race!

My wife and i were absolutely cotetnned when Michael managed to round up his survey via the ideas he gained from your site. It's not at all simplistic to simply be giving freely strategies which usually others might have been trying to sell. We realize we need the blog owner to appreciate because of that. The entire explanations you have made, the simple blog navigation, the relationships your site make it possible to promote it is mostly unbelievable, and it is aiding our son and our family consider that that concept is fun, which is quite fundamental. Many thanks for all the pieces! http://ngzjskij.com [url=http://owvyzkvxs.com]owvyzkvxs[/url] [link=http://ifrobceq.com]ifrobceq[/link]

I have to express my thknas to you for rescuing me from this particular issue. Right after looking out through the online world and coming across solutions that were not pleasant, I believed my life was gone. Living without the answers to the issues you've fixed as a result of your entire blog post is a serious case, and those which may have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not noticed your site. Your actual talents and kindness in taking care of the whole lot was vital. I don't know what I would've done if I had not discovered such a thing like this. I can also at this time look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for your skilled and amazing guide. I won't think twice to recommend the sites to any individual who needs guidance about this subject. http://hynqqwrsp.com [url=http://dzydvi.com]dzydvi[/url] [link=http://ppjrnoz.com]ppjrnoz[/link]
