Team Arctic rolled into Fargo, ND, for the second stop of the 2014-2015 ISOC National Snocross tour, and then rolled over the competition just like they did at the season opener. When the last checkered flag dropped, Team Arctic once again stood atop with victory in 9 of 15 classes, and with 18 of 45 possible podium finishes.
Once again it was Tucker Hibbert leading the charge in the premier Pro Open class, handily winning both nights to score his 98th and 99th career Pro victories. David Joanis and Logan Christian of the Christian Brothers Racing team scored their best finishes of the young season, taking third and fourth in the Friday night show and staying in the thick of the points battle.
Dan Benham and Montana Jess have emerged as the top talent in the Sport division, with each scoring a win on the mighty ZR6000R SX in the ProCross chassis. Trent Wittwer joined Hibbert as the only other double winner at Fargo, taking both Amateur #1 and Amateur #2 finals on his ZR6000R SX. Other class winners for Team Arctic included Brandon Lind in Junior 14-15; Ryley Bester who led a Cat-sweep of the podium in Junior Novice 10-13; and Anson Scheele who also led a podium sweep in Transition 8-12.
“We are impressed and proud of the team’s success in all the Sport, Amateur and all the youth classes, said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “It highlights their tremendous talent, fantastic team support as well as the capability of our stock ZR snocross sled. Especially considering the vastly different track, snow and temperature conditions that we saw compared to the first race at Duluth. Matched with the lock that Tucker has on victory in the Pro Open class, it’s clear that Team Arctic is on a winning roll.”
The next stop on the 2015 ISOC National tour is Jan. 9-10, 2015, at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, MN.
