Team Arctic Cross Country Racers on ZRs Impress in Park Rapids

One Top 6 Pro Class Sweep, Five Top 3 Class Sweeps, 12 Class Wins and 29 Podiums 

Team Arctic cross-country racers were the prime focus this past weekend as they tackled the 12-mile course on Fish Hook Lake in Park Rapids, Minnesota. Riders aboard Arctic Cat ZRs cleaned house.

During Saturday’s Pro Open Final, Team Arctic ZRs took the top six spots led by Zach Herfindahl, Wes Selby, Ben Langaas, Matt Feil, Chad Lian and Re Wadena. Selby set the fastest lap time, 12:37, for the class.

Herfindahl said, “We had our ZR mods working really well for the final on Saturday. Our top 6 sweep on the ProCross chassis speaks volumes for how well it works. The 12 mile course was a demanding one though. During Sunday’s Pro Stock final, I blew a track, which is pretty rare. We had some pretty heated battles on the course, and I think a competitors ski knocked a chunk out while working my way through the field. I look forward to Naytahwaush. That is a fun, rough terrain course.”  

Top 6 Winners with Roger and Bernice Skime 

Team Arctic Race Manager, Mike Kloety said, “We had a competitive weekend overall. Our Pro racers and ZRs in the Open class did really well. The Top 6 sweep led by Herfindahl was pretty impressive. Our success didn’t stop there though, we had many classes where our racers were dominating the podiums and or were top qualifiers in their classes.  

Kloety went on to say, “It was great to have one of our biggest race supporters celebrate with us on Saturday – Roger Skime. Our top 6 sweep gave Roger a big smile, and his enthusiasm for Arctic Cat and racing is infectious. We all like to see him at the races and it pumps everyone up.
