Mike Kloety leads the charge of Team Arctic as the new snowmobile race manager. With 15 years of experience working hands-on with some of the industry’s best snowmobile racers, Team Arctic riders from across the country will immediately benefit from his knowledge and experience.
Chris Twomey, Arctic Cat CEO said, “Mike has been mentored, as well as worked with, some of the brightest stars in the snowmobile industry. Speaking for myself and Arctic Cat, I believe Mike will help Team Arctic racers dominate all forms of snowmobile racing with his experience and love for the sport.”
Kloety was lead mechanic for Kirk Hibbert during Hibbert’s mid-1990s terrain racing, during which time he won five straight ISOC Championships, Jackson Hole King of the Mountain titles and numerous individual wins in cross-country, snocross and hillclimb.
Kloety’s transition will be easier as he carried the role of Assistant Race Manager, working closely with former Team Arctic racing manager Russ Ebert on future plans for several months.
“Making sure Team Arctic has the best snow racing program is not a small task,” Kloety said. “We’ve got a potent group of racers that continue to dominate wherever they go; the goal is to win everything. We have a simple recipe for success. When you have talented riders, a dedicated technical support staff and world class engineers designing the best Sno Pro race sleds, the ingredients for winning are easy.”
The Team Arctic race staff will continue to include Dawn Haugen, Al Shimpa and Corey Berberich as well.
