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.
