Recently, Speedwerx came out with a kitted Arctic Cat ZR120 sled featuring the Briggs & Stratton 206 motor instead of the stock 120cc engine, plus a few extra goodies.
Their calling it the 206RR Arctic Cat, as in “race replica.”
It's a turn-key option for families who have outgrown the performance envelope of the stock 120, or/and those intending to race in the 206 class.
Click for details as well as a video that highlights its performance.
While I can’t guarantee that you will win the above 2014 Arctic Cat F5, I CAN ABSOLUTELY promise you that by participating in the Snowmobile Hall of Fame Raffle, that you will support a truly great organization AND have a chance at riding away on the F5.
I like your odds!
The raffle is just one way to participate in the SHOF. Better yet, I recommend attending the entire 2014 Induction and Ride with the Champs.

Brian Dick’s Pro Stock win at the USXC cross-country in Detroit Lakes, Minn., almost didn’t happen.
Not because of the wicked pace of his teammate Zach Herfindahl, a miscalculation on sled set-up or a mental mistake that would have cost him the win.
Brian’s win almost didn’t happen because he almost stayed home to work on his other race sleds.
