TEAM ARCTIC WINS BLACKJACK SNOCROSS IN BESSEMER

Tucker Hibbert Sweeps Pro Open to Lead Team’s 10-Class Victories

 

Thief River Falls, Minn. (Dec. 9, 2013) On the heels of a dominant start to the 2014 National Snocross season, Team Arctic’s corps of snocross racers brought confidence and momentum into round two at the Blackjack Resort in Bessemer, Mich. The result was even more impressive: Victory in 10 of 15 finals; four podium sweeps; and 22 of 45 possible podium positions.

Said Team Arctic Race Manager Mike Kloety: “We went to Bessemer with the momentum of taking nine wins at the season opener in Duluth one week prior, plus the strength of our ZR6000R Sno Pro race sleds. I would have been happy to match our performance from a week earlier, but instead our racers and teams upped the ante and claimed more victories and podium sweeps.”

For the second week in a row, Arctic Cat/Monster Energy’s Tucker Hibbert proved unstoppable in the hotly contested Pro Open class, winning both finals in convincing fashion. The wins moved him into a tie with fellow snocross legend Blair Morgan, with each capturing 84 career Pro victories in national competition.

Hibbert’s success in the premier class was matched by another full-on crushing of the support classes by Team Arctic racers. Christian Brothers Racing phenom Marica Renheim of Sweden remains undefeated in Pro-AM Women, employing a last-lap pass to battle back from a tough start to claim her second win of the season. Carson Alread added to his win record in the young season, winning both Junior Novice and Transition finals. Jay Lura once again put his winning stamp in Amateur #2, as did Tyler Adams in the Sport #1 final, while Kyle Kuntsman captured his first national win of the season in Amateur #1.

Martin Moland was another new winner for Team Arctic, taking the Sport #2 final. And the trio of Daniel Benham, Sweden’s Albin Lundqvist and Trent Wittwer crushed both Junior class finals, sweeping the podium with Benham and Lundqvist swapping wins.

In addition to the 10 class victories at the National event in Bessemer, Team Arctic racers won eight of 11 class finals in the ISOC Regional race at the same location on Friday.

“We certainly enjoy when Tucker Hibbert or any of our pros win in the premier class, but we take extra satisfaction when Team Arctic racers capture so many wins in the Junior and Sport classes," said Kloety. It proves our snowmobiles have the power, suspension and handling to win for riders of every experience level, and that the future looks bright for continued success.”

Team Arctic snocross racers head to Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn., Jan. 3-4, 2014, for the third round of the ISOC National tour.
