Team Arctic Nails the "D"-Word at 2012 Hay Days Grass Drags


(9/11/2012)

Team Arctic Cat Racing

Press Release-

Arctic Cat Snowmobiles Deliver Good Ol’ Fashioned Butt Whoopin’ at Haydays

ProCross XF Chassis and 800 and 1100 Turbo Engines Define Dominance

 The official kickoff to winter took place this past weekend at the 46th annual Haydays Grass Drags in North Branch, Mn. and Arctic Cat consumers were given plenty to brag about.

If there ever was a doubt as to which manufacturer has the World’s Fastest Snowmobiles, Arctic Cat proved it on the race track. The majority of all class finals paired Cat against Cat across four lanes of the track.

Team Arctic drag race coordinator, Al Shimpa said, “Team Arctic racers definitely gave Cat fans something to brag about this weekend.  We blew by the competition like they were standing still. It was the text book definition of domination and something we are truly proud of!”

One of the most exciting class finals took place in Stock 1000 when four 2013 ProCross XF800s crossed the finish line so close, that the results had to be decided via the timing light system. After examination, a first place tie resulted between Matt Lemire and Jeff Marks. Shimpa said, “Winners are crowned as a result of adding together their Reaction Time and their Elapsed Time (RT+ET=Result). A tie for first place rarely happens; this was truly spectacular!”

You can tell by reading loser Jay Currie's post that he has never had to rsenepert anything more complicated than a lemonade stand. He thinks Lynch's performance on Monday (which I watched yesterday and...with the exception of the techno-illiterate Conservative MP from St. Albert, Brent Rathgeber's...Jawohl!...incoherent babbling, was really boring) was evasive because she was reluctant to be drawn into defending the calumnies he and his smelly band of pathological liars have repeated endlessly.I don't want any more of these derelicts sitting in committee rooms in Parliament. Other people have to sit down on those chairs.The one the Robber Baron's catamite parked his fat arse on the other day had to be thrown out, or so I've heard. http://jcykmycm.com [url=http://fjgbrsi.com]fjgbrsi[/url] [link=http://tjzjwtmjw.com]tjzjwtmjw[/link]

Oh! I most certainly did not think or write that pusnibhilg in top conferences meant you could not have original ideas. I wrote the following:- Self-reinforcing biases are bad and must be fought against. - I remain a misfit.Clearly, you might have an easier time in life if you choose not to be a misfit like me. And if you do "fit in," it does not mean you are an idiot or that you do unoriginal work. http://qmifytdwi.com [url=http://nlppgik.com]nlppgik[/url] [link=http://lbkoqjxk.com]lbkoqjxk[/link]
