You name it, and it was at Hay Days: snowmobiles, racers, races, ATVs, legends, fans, winter, summer, mud, food, greatness, grossness, old car tires and more.
It is an amalgamation of nearly everything that touches any aspect of snowmobiling, with just enough weirdness.
The 1pm new-sled unveiling is always a big draw in the Arctic Cat booth. Two heavily re-worked ZR 6000R race sleds were the new machines this year.
The Team Arctic poster signing is always a hit. Incredible team, awesome people.
Team Arctic legends, Joey Hallstrom (L) and Brad Pake. Still smiling.
Speedwerx has some extra horsepower and cool stuff for the new ZR 200.
L-to-R: Speedwerx’s Steve Houle, and Team Arctic’s Mike Kloety, Kelland Bjerke and Jeff Wittwer. Lots of coversations about the upcoming race season for this crew.
Zach Herfindahl’s 2017 USXC I-500-winning race sled, looking bitchin’ as ever.
World champion P.J. Wanderscheid (L) with world’s most awesome Roger Skime.
Grass drag racing was the original big-draw. Still love the action, and Arctic Cat kicked ass (again), winning 11 of 20 classes.
The swap: it’s still the best entertainment you’ll find, and a source of continual wonderment.
The downside of too much tail-standing.
Yep! Because…Hay Days.
Thanks for watching.
