Polaris cross-country snowmobile racers started the 2014-15 USXC season off strong as Ryan Faust (Faust Racing) won the Pro Stock final and Justin Tate (2-Eight Motorsports) reached the podium twice in the Pro classes this past weekend. Polaris racers also earned podium spots with top-three finishes in Semi-Pro and Women’s classes near Gonvick, Minn.
In the Pro Stock class final that Ryan Faust won, all seven Polaris racers in the final scored top-10 finishes. Justin Tate (2-Eight Motorsports) finished third in Pro Stock, Gabe Bunke (Bunke Racing) was fifth, Travis Faust (Faust Racing) was sixth, Bobby Menne (131 Racing) – who missed most of last season with an injury – was seventh, Spencer Kadlec (Bunke Racing) was ninth, and Mike Morgan (Bunke Racing) finished 10th. Morgan is racing selected USXC events before returning to race in Alaska, where he teamed with Chris Olds to finish third in last winter’s Iron Dog race.
