Bunke Racing Readies for the 2014-2015 Race Season
Moorhead, Minn. (December 15, 2014) – With cold temperatures and early snow the lakes froze over and gave the Bunke Racing crew some early test time. It may be cold outside but things are heating up in the Bunke Racing shop as the team is hard at work preparing for the coming race season.
Flying into Fargo today is the newest member for Bunke Racing, Mike Morgan. Mike was born and raised in the small gold rush town of Nome Alaska and currently resides in Anchorage Alaska. We are excited to have Mike; he has plenty of experience on the ice. Look out Pine Lake this guy will be a great contender.
The Bunke race team will consist of team owner and Pro racer, Gabe Bunke along with Spencer Kadlec and Mike Morgan will join in for a few races. We have Taylor Bunke returning riding in the Semi-Pro class and In the Women’s PRO division we have the Pladson sisters: Anne and Kelsey.
Meanwhile, at the Bunke Racing shop they are busy prepping sleds for the first cross-country race set for this weekend in Gonvick, Minnesota. New Rules have forced the team to use the NEW Polaris AXYS sleds for Cross Country racing. The IQR race chasis are only legal to race in the open class events. Bunke and partner Aaron Christensen are climbing on board the IQR again this year at the SOO I-500 in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The Bunke team will be looking for that checkered flag and hoping for a fourth straight win at the Soo, which would go down in the record books. Gabe and Aaron will also be attending the No bull Triple Crown events out in Michigan which includes the Soo I-500.
