Strong fin­ish to sea­son for lo­cal snowcross racer

The Woolwich Observer - - SPORTS - ALI WIL­SON

HEI­DEL­BERG’S TAY­LOR STE­WART WRAPPED up the Cana­dian Snowcross Rac­ing As­so­ci­a­tion’s com­pet­i­tive cir­cuit win­ning the Sport 600 1 and end­ing in sec­ond place in the Sport 600 2 divi­sion.

Fol­low­ing the Mys­tik Lubri­cants Na­tional Cham­pi­onships and Dayco Na­tional Snowcross Fi­nals this past week­end at Horse­shoe Val­ley Re­sort, Ste­wart had ac­cu­mu­lated enough points to knock down his com­pe­ti­tion, win­ning the divi­sion against rac­ers who had been com­pet­ing for many years prior.

The CSRA rac­ing sea­son runs Oc­to­ber through April. To­day’s most pop­u­lar form of snow­mo­bile rac­ing, snowcross has high-fly­ing aerial dis­plays and com­pact track de­signs that sees com­peti­tors race around tracks with tight turns, banked cor­ners and a va­ri­ety of jumps.

The 19-year-old EDSS grad­u­ate took up the sport only a few years ago, but quickly gained at­ten­tion from a Ski­doo race depart­ment, which of­fered him a po­si­tion on their X Team.

This was his first year com­pet­ing in ei­ther the Sport 600 1 or Sport 600 2, hav­ing com­peted in Trail Sport 600 last year.
