The Amsoil Championship Snocross Tour kicks off two days of racing this weekend (February 10-11) during the 41st running of the Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt at the Circuit Yvon Duhamel. With current Pro points leader Elias Ishoel out due to injury (Elias is making great progress after a horrific crash in Deadwood where he suffered a broken femur, fractured elbow, collapsed lung, liver lacerations, broken ribs, and a fractured vertebra.) Cat Pro riders Daniel Benham (currently sitting 9th in points), Jacob Yurk (6th in points and coming off a podium finish), and Pro Lite rider Trent Wittwer (currently 6th in national points) will go to battle in the backyard of Ski-Doo. The Grand Prix represents rounds 7 and 8 of the national tour, which means the teams are approaching the mid-way point of the season. As always, you can catch all the action live on FloRacing (subscription required).

This weekend also marks the kick-off to the Rocky Mountain States Hillclimb Association (RMSHA) season. Qualifying for the Salt Pass Border Dash in Geneva, Idaho took place yesterday and the competition will commence today. Once again you can watch on FloRacing and following live timing and scoring HERE. Good luck to all racers representing Cat this weekend, and safe racing to all the competitors.



  1. Why doesn’t Arctic cat go after top 3 factory racers like Ski doo and Polaris? Pay them !! it will result in so many more sales !! Love Team Arctic but our guys just don’t seem to have any consistency to compete for podiums. It’s rare that they even in top 5 half the season. Please get one of the big boys and get Arctic Cats back on top like the glory days of Kirk Hubbert and Brian Sturgon pure dominance of the field!! 🏁🏆🏁 isn’t it time to stop getting our ass kicked and kick some ass??

  2. Id like to see AC win in snocross more consistently, but I think its beyond just “paying” top talent. (Hard to argue racers like Yurk and Benham aren’t top talent) There needs to be a total investment in the snocross racing program which includes developing a new race sled and all the engineering efforts that go with it. Personally Im happier to see Arctic Cat focus what resources they have on cross country racing which directly transfers to the 24 Catalyst RXC Im riding. Ill also argue Hibbert and Sturgeon didn’t DOMINATE snocross at all, but had great success in cross country and oval racing…which Arctic Cat fans have now in racers like Herfindahl and Cadarette. And its gonna be a LONG time before we see another Tucker Hibbert in snocross.

  3. Part of it is they are still racing there 2019 sleds. Because they only make 60 SnoX sled. Not the ISR minimum build. They can’t make any changes to the sled. So its hard to get someone to jump ship. When the competition has all the new stuff on there 2024 units to win races. The few that are on A/C and doing well. Kudos on making something that’s out of date run well. And I’m going to say they are more “talent” then you probably think. If Textron would open there wallet and get them on modern up to date sled. They would probably shine !

  4. Yurk, Benham, and Wittwer all had good weekends. I agree, they are more talented than people think, especially running half a decade old sleds.
