Press Release: Arctic Cat Racers Wrap Up Terrain Championships



Seven Class wins and Two Championship Titles in ISOC Snocross; 16 Class Championships in USXC
Thief River Falls, Minn. (March 21, 2014) – When the checkered flag flew to end the 2014 ISOC
National snocross season in Lake Geneva, Wis., Team Arctic stood atop the podium with seven class
wins, two class championships and a podium place in each of the five championship points classes.
As the final event of ISOC National season, Lake Geneva saw another historic crushing of the Pro
classes by Tucker Hibbert and Marica Renheim. Hibbert was victorious each of the three Pro Open
finals, bringing his season win total to 15 out of 17 possible. Marica Renheim was equally impressive,
staying undefeated in season finals to record her eighth win. In fact, Renheim lost only once the entire
season: a heat race at the season-opener in Duluth.
“Tucker and Marica’s performances this season set a new standard,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic
Race Manager. “What makes their phenomenal win records even more honorable is the fact that both are
great people and excellent ambassadors for snowmobiling.”
Having dominated their classes all season, Hibbert and Renheim also claimed their respective ISOC
high point championship titles. In addition, Corey Watkinson capped an excellent season in Pro Lite
with a third place overall title. Josh Zelinski did the same in Pro Am 30 Plus. And Travis Kern
graciously accepted his second place point title in Sport despite being crashed out of the championship
title by another racer at Lake Geneva while Kern was in third place, just two corners before the finish
Team Arctic’s contingent of USXC cross-country racers cleaned house in the season championship
points war, taking the title in 16 classes including eight podium sweeps and 42 out of 60 championship
podium positions. Zach Herfindahl capped his remarkable sophomore season in the Pro class by winning
the Pro Stock championship and taking a close second in the Pro Open chase. Jolene Bute won yet
another Women’s class championship. And Jon Arneson captured three class championships, including
the tough-fought Semi Pro Stock and all-new Super Stock classes.
“The team’s performance in cross-country racing is unmatched in the sport,” said Kloety, and then
added; “We dominated at the top end in the Pro and Semi Pro classes, as well as in the Junior, Sport and
Expert 85 classes. Team Arctic’s current and future talent is exceptional, with class winners like Hunter
Houle, Ryan Trout, Jon Langaas and many others pointing to dominance for years to come. I thank all of
our snocross and cross-country racers, teams, crews and families for their dedication and excellence on
behalf of everyone at Arctic Cat. It’s our greatest honor to build and support the snowmobiles that you
race, and we’re grateful for your efforts.”
