      Scott Faeo and Eric Quam Win Alaska Iron Dog

      Polaris cross country snowmobile racers Scott Faeo and Eric Quam won the Iron Dog race across Alaska on Saturday, Feb. 28, on a pair of 2015 600 Switchback PRO-S models built on the AXYS platform.

      Faeo and Quam led for more than half of the 2,031-mile race on some of the most varied snow conditions in race history. Racers encountered long stretches of bare ground early in the race, and rode through water-covered streets when they arrived at the race’s midway point in Nome. They then raced out of Nome as a snowstorm swept in off the coast.

          Polaris snocross racer Kody Kamm (Hentges Racing) won one of the most exciting Pro Open finals of the season during a Jan. 30-31 weekend of ISOC National racing in Deadwood, S.D., and Ross Martin (Judnick Motorsports) reached the Pro Open podium both nights.

          Kamm was the top qualifier prior to the Friday night Pro Open final, but it was Martin who got the holeshot to show he would battle for the win. Kamm passed Martin for the lead at the end of the first lap, then series points leader Tucker Hibbert moved into second and pressed Kamm for the remaining 21 laps on the tight, technical course. Kamm countered every Hibbert passing attempt, retained his speed as he worked his way through traffic, and won his first final of the season. Martin finished third, and three fellow Polaris racers also finished in the top 10: Justin Broberg (Hentges Racing) was eighth, Corin Todd (Leighton Motorsports) was ninth, and Jake Scott (Team LaVallee) finished 10th.

            2015 Polaris 800 RMK-Pro

            Polaris to announce all-new AXYS platform-based replacement for popular 2015 Pro-RMK this Friday.

            The Polaris snowmobile website is teasing an announcement of a new model, most likely some version of the Model Year 2016 RMK series, that will be announced on Friday, January 30th.

            The video teaser, which you can see below, announces a new RMK ostensibly based on an expansion of the AXYS platform. The teaser notes that the “all new king takes its throne” with dramatic improvements made to all the things that make the current Pro-RMK series work. The Polaris video teases the new 2016 Rocky Mountain King will offer: instantaneous lift; rider balanced control, and immediate response. These are the stated hallmarks of the AXYS Rush and Switchback series of trail sleds for 2015.
