Team Arctic’s Wanderscheid Wins 4th Championship

Press Release –

Team Arctic's Wanderscheid wins a 4th World's Championship


P.J. Wanderscheid Leads Team Arctic’s Dominance at Eagle River;

Cross-Country Team Scores 11 Wins in Grand Forks

Thief River Falls, Minn. (Jan. 17, 2011) – With the weight of history stacked against him, Team Arctic’s P.J. Wandershcheid reached deep into his bag of race savvy, pulling out a record-setting fourth Eagle River World’s Championship to become the winningest driver in the event’s 48 years. The historic win capped what many longtime oval fans say was one of the greatest duels in Eagle River (Wis.) history, with Wanderscheid locked in a 15-lap battle with former Team Arctic two-time champion, Gary Moyle.

“In a race steeped in history, and competing against one of only three three-time winners (Jacques Villeneuve), Wanderscheid used his undeniable talent and preparation to overcome Eagle’s glass-ceiling,” said Team Arctic Race Manager, Mike Kloety. “It’s a monumental achievement for a great racer and team.”

Wanderscheid’s fourth win in a decade led one of Team Arctic’s strongest showings at Eagle River in recent memory.

While Team Arctic’s oval racers swept through Eagle River, the cross-country contingent delivered another dominant performance, this time at the USCC event in Grand Forks, ND. Battling on one of the roughest courses in USCC history, Team Arctic racers won 11 classes, including nine 1-2-3 podium sweeps.

For the second race this season, Ryan Simons was literally seconds off of the winning time in Pro 600, taking second place and leading a contingent of Christian Bros. Racing teammates that notched seven of the top-10.

Ryan Greening nailed an impressive win in the Semi Pro 600 class, leading a Team Arctic podium sweep, while Bryce Buchanen topped the Expert 85 class and Jolene Bute winning the Women’s.

More than 200 racers competed at Grand Forks, including nearly 50 racers aboard the Sno Pro 500.  

The next race in the USCC circuit is the Red Lake 500, Jan. 21-23 in Thief River Falls. Go to for more information.

  1. Great job!
    Wish some of the pros could have been at Eagle River for the snocross Pro World Championships to beat up on the Polaris and Ski-Doo teams there!

  2. Hey Amy, not sure if you remember me but I used to live over by Julie and did that shoot with you at the Lollipop stop that she put tohegter. But I just wanted to tell you I love your photos you do beautiful work!

  3. Sorry, but that is the wrong question. The more crciital question is, When will we see large scale transfer of heat to the ice sheets? Thus, the correct question is: When will the temperature of seawater in contact with the base of the WAIS exceed 0C? For that number I would say the odds are even that it will happen before 2020. I would even go out on a limb and say that the odds of it happening by 2015 were as high as 10%. Surprised? Were you also surprised at the Larson collapse in 2002? Or, the Wilkins in 2009? Or, the Wordie? [url=]vvjqobtg[/url] [link=]fanudwffz[/link]

  4. OMg! You people are all Crazy’!! A true Coke fan would not cmpolain on the taste’ or the packageing’ or the look’they would drink it out of any can no matter where its from or what it looks like. Its about time Coke an WWF got together to come up with a marketing to help save the polar bear. I for one LOVE IT’!! it looks cool and im all about saving the planet and saving the polar bears. Coke should not have to cancel its Artic White Coke can just because you dont like it. Well if you dont like it then Dont buy it! Dont drink it! I agree with Julie DeMaio it still tase the same it still looks same its just White insted of Red. And Santa is not the only symbol for coke its both the Polar Bear and Santa. I challeng anyone go to the Coke place in ATL an you will see alot of products with the Coke- Cole Polar Bear. [url=]cjtqevyg[/url] [link=]kanjwzql[/link]
