Robbie Malinoski ISOCScheuring Speed Sports’ Robbie Malinoski (Ski-Doo), who swept the Pro snocross classes at the season-opening Duluth National, chatted with the ISOC ahead of this weekend’s Blackjack National in Bessemer, Mich.

ISOC: You scored a second and a third last year at Blackjack – AMSOIL Championship Snocross’ first venture to the upper Michigan ski area. What are your memories of the venue?

Malinoski: Blackjack’s a great landscape with a lot of snow. It’s the ideal spot for a snocross track and I’m pumped to get back there.

ISOC: From a spectator’s standpoint the face of Blackjack’s ski hill looked to be the most rugged and challenging terrain you guys faced all last season on the AMSOIL Championship Snocross circuit. Would you agree with that?

Malinoski: Yeah, for sure. The downhill section they had was the gnarliest section we faced all year – definitely a spot for crashes, race passes and whatnot. It’s the signature area of the course for sure and I sure hope they bring it back for this weekend.

Robbie Malinoski Duluth NationalSki-Doo racers put together what can only be described as a dominating performance at the ISOC snocross series opener in Duluth, Minn. With four Pro and Pro Lite classes up for grabs, Ski-Doo racers took wins in all of them.

Robbie Malinoski had a phenomenal weekend as he led the Ski-Doo/Scheuring Speed Sports podium sweep in Pro Open Sunday afternoon, adding to his Saturday night win and establishing a substantial points lead. Having a great weekend of his own was defending Champion Tim Tremblay who claimed a third on Saturday and second on Sunday with rock solid rides every time he hit the racetrack. Completing the Sunday sweep was Darrin Mees, who claimed his first Pro podium in third, backing up an eighth-place run on Saturday. Everyone suspected the Scheuring Speed Sports team would be tough and saw the potential for a podium sweep, but most wouldn’t have expected it so early in the season.

Robbie Malinoski BRPBRP’s Ski-Doo snocross racers continued their best season in many years with another strong performance at the ISOC ERX National, the most recent round of the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series.

Ski-Doo X Team riders claimed 10 of 18 Pro podium spots including Pro Open, Pro Lite and Pro AM Plus 30 wins during Friday night’s racing. The track at ERX Motor Park was the longest and one of the roughest X-Team riders had seen to date on the National snocross tour and featured deep holes, tight turns and double- and triple-jumps.

X-Team rider Robbie Malinoski, of Scheuring Speed Sports, got a monster holeshot to start the Pro Open final on Friday night. Malinoski quickly put a gap between himself and the rest of the field and set a blistering race pace. Tim Tremblay came out of the start in fifth place on his Foremost Insurance/Warnert Racing MX ZX, but the points leader set to work making up ground on the riders in front of him and was also helped by a competitor’s sled breaking down. By the time the checkered flag flew Tremblay had slotted into second just behind Malinoski who led flag-to-flag, taking the win. Tremblay came back Saturday to take a third place podium spot.

Robbie Malinoski Scheuring Speed SportsIt was a weekend of both ecstasy and agony for the Scheuring Speed Sports team at this weekend’s stop of the ISOC’s AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series in Elk River, Minn.

Robbie Malinoski captured his third AMSOIL Pro Open victory of the season on Friday after railing the outside lane at the start of the main event and never looking back. The result temporarily propelled Malinoski into second in the championship chase and continued to build on momentum carried throughout the last five straight weeks of racing.

Darrin Mees was the number three qualifier on Friday and finished in the sixth spot, retaining his position in the standings.

Robbie Malinoski PodiumRobbie Malinoski made a giant leap in his pursuit of the 2012 AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series Pro Open title, winning Friday night and finishing second on Saturday night in Farmington, NY.

Malinoski’s win on Friday, his second of the season, went wire-to-wire as he grabbed the lead from an inside starting position and never looked back. On Saturday, Malinoski jumped to a second place start and battled to the front of the pack early in the contest. As the race leaders caught lapped traffic, the top three traded positions with Malinoski ultimately finishing in the runner-up spot.

The weekend’s results have propelled Malinoski into the third position in the championship, just eight points out of the lead.

“Our goal coming into the weekend was to whittle away three points at each of the remaining rounds and put ourselves within reach at the last event,” says team owner Steve Scheuring. “With his performance this weekend, Robbie just moved that timetable up by about three weeks.”
