Craig, Colorado – XMR put on a great Show at the Wyman Winter Festival in Craig, Colorado this past weekend. With over 3,400 spectators in attendance the festivities were fun for everyone. From snocross, to drags, the vintage show, the snodeo, fireworks and finals under the lights there was no shortage of winter snowmobiling fun. XMR hauled snow for almost two weeks and built a great track full of bumps that changed a lot throughout the race day with lots of sled traffic. XMR packed two days of racing into one full day and it wasn’t until he sun went down and the lights lit up that the finals took place.
In the Pro/Semi Pro finals Wes Selby took the stock and mod honors over Willie Elam who had been winning the qualifiers most of the day. They put on a great show in the main, and rightfully so, with a $3,000 purse on the lines. It was the same in the sport class where Tyler Dyess had been winning the qualifiers, with Jason Fox Close behind, but Fox was hungry for the win in the main and took both the Sport I and Sport II wins for the day.
In the Juniors classes, Dillon Moss took the 16-17 title and the 14-17 Xtreme title. Wesley Chapman was a close second in the 16-17, and Chapman managed the win in the 14-15 class. Likewise AJ Stoffle kept up his winning streak in both the 10-13 and the 10-13 Challenge, and was looking good on the sled all weekend – it won’t be long before this guy moves up…Michelle Stoffle came back from an injury in Afton and won the Sport Women main in front of her hometown crowd as well!
We can forget the little sleds either… The Green Brothers Jarret and Kyler moved up to 7-10 this race and took first and second respectively. This left the door open for Jake Gill in the 120 Stock class, Payton Hogan in the 120 Super, and Grey Mathews in the 120 Champ to all take their wins. These little ones put on a great show and had a lot of fun on the big track at Craig!
This is always one of the best XMR events of the season, so if you missed it this year, start planning for next. XMR will be in Grand Lake again this weekend with Snocross and Drag races planned for Saturday and Sunday, followed by more racing action in Walden, CO the following weekend.
