Press Release-


Victory in 10 of 19 Classes plus 23 Podium Finishes at the Premier Grass Drag Event

Billed as the official start of winter, the Sno-Baron’s Hay Days grass drags proved to be a lesson in frustration for anyone that faced Team Arctic’s drag racers. Claiming 10 wins (of 19 classes), 23 podium finishes and victory in the biggest classes, Team Arctic was untouchable.

As two of the most compelling classes of the weekend, Stock 800 and Outlaw Shootout also epitomized Team Arctic’s domination at Hay Days. In the Stock 800 class, Dylan Roes led a 1-2-3-4 Arctic Cat sweep to prove the power, light weight and efficiency of Arctic Cat 8000 series XF and M mountain models compared to the competition. The Outlaw Shootout offered a look at the fully modified 4-stroke side of the spectrum, but the results were the same with Walter Joy leading 1-2-3-4 Arctic Cat sweep of insanely fast XF9000 Turbos.

The other Team Arctic racers who notched impressive victories included Will Ohara (who won two classes) Jade Gilland (Above, who’s win in Pro Stock 600 was with a Speedwerx-modified Arctic Cat 600 DSI engine), Dave Gallano, Kyle Shilts (below), Jason Owens, Jim Neuman and Joseph Strong.

“Our amazing team of racers, tuners and crew members delivered an outstanding performance on drag racing’s biggest stage,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “Dominating the Stock 800 final was particularly satisfying as everyone wants to know which brand’s 800 sled will come out on top. Our teams left no room for doubt that Arctic Cat is the one to beat!  

“Seeing the incredible modified Arctic Cat 4-stroke machines in the Outlaw and Lake Racer classes was equally impressive. It’s a great reward for the amount of time and resources those teams pour into those machines!” 

The success at Hay Days comes after a similarly dominant performance two weeks earlier at the Outlaw Drags in Princeton, Minn., where Team Arctic racers notched 14 wins.

“We greatly appreciate the effort and success shown by all the Team Arctic drag racers,” Kloety added. “They have already proved that Arctic Cat Wins More. Plus there are upcoming grass drag events where they’ll continue to lead the pack.”
