Plymouth, Minn. – Team Arctic snocross racers prevailed at Round No. 3 and No. 4 of the ISOC National series in Fargo, ND, capturing eight class wins, 19 podium finishes and the top spot among the competitive brands. From the youngest classes to the premier Pro Open category, Team Arctic racers and the Arctic Cat ZR6000R SX once again proved to be the winning combination.
Tucker Hibbert captured his second Pro Open win of the season in Fargo with a masterful, dominant performance in Round 4 that all but erased the frustrations of a chaotic first turn pileup the previous evening that left him out of contention for the win, but still able to salvage a fourth. Hibbert remains in the Pro Open points lead.
Team Arctic’s Martin Moland delivered a storybook performance en route to winning the Pro Lite final ahead of teammate Montana Jess on Saturday. The young racer from Alta, Sweden, was originally planning to return home after the Fargo round. But after a strong showing in Duluth, his dad offered an incentive: win in Fargo and Martin could stay and race the full season. With focus, grit and determination, Moland won and will finish the ISOC season with the expert help of the Frattalone Race team.
Team Arctic maintained its place atop the support and youth categories at Fargo. Ryley Bester continued his perfect season in the Junior classes at Fargo, winning the Jr. 14-15 and 16-17 finals in dominant fashion. Baily Forst took his first win of the season in Sport Lite #2, while Eric Downs continued his winning ways by leading a Team Arctic podium sweep of Jr. 10-13. Likewise, Taven Woodie notched her second win of the season in Jr. Girls 9-13. Andy Pake was another first time winner in Fargo, leading a 1-2-3 finish for Team Green in the Transition 8-12 final.
“To leave Fargo with the most wins and most podium finishes of any brand is both gratifying and a huge relief,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “It was a marginal track that left zero margin for error. Our racers and teams stepped up to the challenging conditions and proved themselves by hauling home the most hardware, which makes everyone at Arctic Cat even more proud. Now they can rest up for a few weeks while the cold temps and snow return for the rest of the season.”
The next ISOC snocross national is Jan. 8-9 at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, MN.
