Arctic Cat issued the following press release about the ISOC championship snocross race last weekend at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minnesota.
THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn. (Jan. 13, 2015) – Team Arctic proved its depth and excellence at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minnesota, winning eight of 16 classes and capturing 18 of 48 podium finishes at the third stop of the 2014-15 ISOC National Snocross tour. In a stunning display of class leadership and Arctic Cat ZR 6000R SX excellence, Team Green captured victory in both Pro Lite finals and both Sport finals in addition to sweeping the podium in Sport and Transition.
Corey Watkinson and Tyler Adams each scored their first respective win in Pro Lite, with Watkinson taking the win on Friday and first-year Pro Lite racer Adams taking the win on Saturday. Their solid finishes launch them straight into the season-long championship title chase. Montana Jess did the double at Canterbury, taking both Sport class wins along with a commanding lead in the point chase.
Other Team Arctic class winners at Canterbury Park included Trent Wittwer (Amateur), Ryley Bester (Jr. Novice), Brandon Nelson (Transition) and Tucker Haala (Champ 120).
In the Pro Open class, Team Arctic’s Tucker Hibbert fell just shy of scoring his 100th Pro victory, taking a second and fourth during the weekend while extending his point lead and earning top-qualifier honors both days. He was joined by the next top qualifier, Logan Christian, who scored a 5th and 10th respectively.
“Our team proved their depth across the entire range of classes,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “To win half of all finals – including sweeping the Pro Lite and Sport classes – highlights the skill and dedication of our racers and teams, as well as the strength of our consumer-based ProCross race chassis.”
The next stop on the 2015 ISOC National tour is January 30-31 in Deadwood, South Dakota, following the ESPN Winter X Games on January 25.
