I’m thankful for the wild and crazy riders who emerge from every generation and do more than just push the boundaries: they completely and literally launch over and/or blow right through them.
I’m thankful for the human spirit that yearns to fly higher, farther and faster.
I’m thankful for Screamin’ Scott Eilertson, Arctic Cat District Sales Manager, former racer and jumping record holder, who thrilled the 40,000 spectators at Great Lakes Raceway in Union Grove, Wis., on Labor Day weekend 1975 by launching his 1973 EXT 98 feet (and collapsing the running boards and spraining both ankles in the process).
I’m thankful the power cable didn’t clothesline him.
And I’m thankful it’s Friday, Dec. 4, 2015 (and that Scott is STILL a wild/crazy Arctic Cat guy)!
