The USXC Seven Clans I-500 is one of the most grueling and prestigious races in snowmobiling. Run in and around Thief River Falls, Minn., the hometown of Arctic Cat snowmobiles, the race is the modern version of the famed Winnipeg to St. Paul race that dates back to 1966. The three-day race features roughly 160 miles of racing each day in ditches, woods, river and fields of Northern Minnesota.
Christian Brothers Racing rider Brian Dick won the race for the second time in his career this past Saturday with teammate Zach Herfindahl finishing about two minutes behind him in second place. Christian Brothers Racing has won the past three runnings of the event with Brian winning in 2011 and Ryan Simons winning in 2013 (2012 was cancelled due to weather).
