Remember the stunning battle between Team Arctic’s P.J. Wanderscheid and Ski-Doo’s Gary Moyle at the 2011 Eagle River World’s Championship?
If it’s repeated at the upcoming World’s Championship, it will be two Arctic Cat racers battling for the win.
Yep, Moyle’s back on Team Arctic for this coming season! The Houghton, Mich. racer is a two-time Eagle River World’s Champion, having won in 2005 and 2007. Once again, he’ll partner with John Hooper for engine and chassis development.
Wanderscheid (of Sauk Centre, Minn.) is the only four-time World Champion, having won the historic fourth title at the 2011 event after a race-long battle with Moyle that many longtime fans say was one of the most dramatic finals in Eagle River history.
After the hoped-for at Eagle this coming season, these two oval legends will team up with Cadarette Racing to tackle the Soo International 500 enduro.
Cadarette Racing made history as the first Arctic Cat team to win the Soo 500, a feat they accomplished in 2010 with Troy DeWald and Jeff Leuenberger.
Together, this three-way powerhouse will make for a very interesting Soo 500 this coming season. While it’s too early to make any predictions (particularly for a race that’s proven time and again to be an elusive juggernaut), the combo of Cadarette/P.J./Moyle certainly suggest strong potential.
No matter the outcome, it’s great to have Moyle back on Cat. I’m looking forward to the battles with and against P.J. Wanderscheid. Gonna be a fun season of racing.
