Former national points champion and top-dog on Polaris’ snocross team Kody Kamm is done for the young season on the Amsoil Championship Snocross series, thanks to a knee injury that will require surgery on Friday.
Kamm, the 2017 points champ from Kenosha, Wisconsin, posted on social media that his knee injury includes LCL and ACL damage. His Monday post was then backed up by a post from the Hentges Racing for which he races that stated, “We’re bummed to report Kamm will be out for the remainder of the season. His knee injury includes a torn LCL with some ACL damage which requires surgery. The surgery is routine, however Kamm will have a long road ahead of him where he will need to focus his efforts on recovery including regaining strength, stability and re-establishing his endurance. Kody will continue to be a part of the crew, traveling to events both coaching and cheering on his team. We’re extremely lucky his health is otherwise great and are hoping for a smooth recovery.”
Today, Polaris had a post of its own — confirming the Kamm injury but then noting that a new racer is being brought to North America to take his place. Emil Harr will be racing out of the Hentges trailer, Polaris announced. He’ll be paired with another Swede — Oskar Norum. Norum has been a podium-earning machine in early-season Amsoil Championship Snocross events.
Harr made some appearances in Pro Lite a couple of years ago racing for Warnert Racing on the No. 31 Makita Ski-Doo, and he finished second behind Adam Renheim at a snocross race call the Arctic Cat Cup in January of 2019 in Ostersun, Sweden, also on a Ski-Doo. Pictures of him racing this year to a Scandinavia social media site show him sitting on a Polaris, however. There are also pictures of him online racing a Lynx in Europe.
