#44 Anson Scheele Aims to Return to Podium with Four Rounds Remaining
Christian Brothers Racing (CBR) and the #44 Arctic Cat ZR of Pro Lite racer, Anson Scheele, took to the big snocross track in Elk River this weekend showcasing speed and athleticism as they move into final rounds of season.
Thus far, the Pro Lite class has been a storied one with a variety of racers visiting the top podium spots. Second year Pro Lite racer, Anson Scheele, had a second place season best final in Dubuque, Iowa and moved up one spot in the National Points race after departing Elk River.
Scheele said, “Pro Lite is one of the toughest classes this year. This class hasn’t backed off in number of competitors. It’s consistently had three rounds of qualifiers and fast guys are in every one of them. I’m right up there though and will revisit that podium yet again this season.”
Currently sitting seventh in National Points, Scheele is just outside of cracking the Top Five.
Anson’s crew chief, Aaron Scheele said, “DJ Ekre has our Arctic Cat clutching performing top notch. Moving into these last four rounds, we’re focused on dialing in the rear suspension to match the strength of the engine. Riding on top of, and through, those big hits and soft spring snow will be key to staying out front, and we’ll be ready.”
Christian Brothers Racing gave away a CBR Team Replica Jacket to two lucky youths, Bentley and Ezekiel. Fans entered to win at the Christian Brothers Racing Merchandise Trailer, a lucky winner was randomly being drawn each night of the event. Jackets are given away at each Championship Snocross National.

The Scheeles are one of our family’s favorite racers. Anson is one of my favorite snocross racers and my dad grew up watching Aaron Scheele. Any more photos you can share of them? Me and my buddies look at this site when there isn’t anything to do at school. Shhhhh!
Cool to see DJ Ekre. He was a hell of a fast cross country racer. One of the best!
