      Polaris RMK 408 Rosseau

      Jeff Pelowski, mayor of Roseau, Minn., has declared April 8 as Polaris RMK Day. The day’s date (4/08) reflects the 408-pound dry weight of the new 2016 Polaris 800 Pro-RMK 155, which is built at Polaris’ manufacturing facility in Roseau.

      “Roseau is the proud Birthplace of Polaris and home to the company’s snowmobile engineering and production facility,” Pelowski said. “April 4 – 4/08 – is the ideal day to celebrate the industry-leading innovation and amazingly light weight of the new PRO-RMK model that was developed by the Polaris staff right here in Roseau.”

          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.
