Team Green Wins More with Vic­tory in Nine Classes and 18 Podium Fin­ishes

Sno-Dak News - - Ski-Doo Bulletin -

Thief River Falls, Minn. (Dec. 15, 2014) – Team Arc­tic rolled into Fargo, ND, for the sec­ond stop of the 2014-2015 ISOC Na­tional Snocross tour, and then rolled over the com­pe­ti­tion just like they did at the sea­son opener. When the last check­ered flag dropped, Team Arc­tic once again stood atop with vic­tory in 9 of 15 classes, and with 18 of 45 pos­si­ble podium fin­ishes.

Once again it was Tucker Hib­bert lead­ing the charge in the pre­mier Pro Open class, hand­ily win­ning both nights to score his 98th and 99th ca­reer Pro vic­to­ries. David Joa­nis and Lo­gan Chris­tian of the Chris­tian Broth­ers Rac­ing team scored their best fin­ishes of the young sea­son, tak­ing third and fourth in the Fri­day night show and stay­ing in the thick of the points bat­tle.

Dan Ben­ham and Mon­tana Jess have emerged as the top tal­ent in the Sport divi­sion, with each scor­ing a win on the mighty ZR6000R SX in the ProCross chas­sis. Trent Wit­twer joined Hib­bert as the only other dou­ble win­ner at Fargo, tak­ing both Am­a­teur #1 and Am­a­teur #2 fi­nals on his ZR6000R SX. Other class win­ners for Team Arc­tic in­cluded Bran­don Lind in Ju­nior 14-15; Ry­ley Bester who led a Cat-sweep of the podium in Ju­nior Novice 10-13; and An­son Scheele who also led a podium sweep in Tran­si­tion 8-12.

“We are im­pressed and proud of the team’s suc­cess in all the Sport, Am­a­teur and all the youth classes, said Mike Kloety, Team Arc­tic Race Man­ager. “It high­lights their tremen­dous tal­ent, fan­tas­tic team sup­port as well as the ca­pa­bil­ity of our stock ZR snocross sled. Es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the vastly dif­fer­ent track, snow and tem­per­a­ture con­di­tions that we saw com­pared to the first race at Du­luth. Matched with the lock that Tucker has on vic­tory in the Pro Open class, it’s clear that Team Arc­tic is on a win­ning roll.”

The next stop on the 2015 ISOC Na­tional tour is Jan. 9-10, 2015, at Can­ter­bury Park in Shakopee, MN.
