Press Release -


Two King Titles and Five Class Championship Titles to Close RMSHA Season

Team Arctic hillclimbers put an exclamation point on another dominating season of RMSHA racing with an outstanding performance at Beaver Mountain in Logan, Utah, taking eight class victories, two King titles and five season high point titles.

As has been the case all season, Team Arctic showed their depth at Beaver Mountain, with six different class winners that ranged from Juniors to Open Mod, from the M6 to the M8 HCR.

Les Keller put his M8 on top of the 1000 Stock class, and then went one better by taking the Stock King title ahead of the other class winners. Amy Zollinger delivered another stunning performance, winning all three Women’s classes and taking the championship title in each. And Bryant Ropelato took Semi Pro Stock win and the King title, beating all Improved and Mod class winners in the process.

“It’s great to end the hillclimb season with eight class victories and two King titles,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “Our racers go into the off-season confident that they have the best equipment to match their top talent and determination. And we’ll spend the next months incorporating what we’ve learned into the Team Arctic Hillclimb program to build upon its success.”
