      Team Arctic cross-country racers dominated the first ditch and river race of the season, scoring 11 wins in 17 classes at the USXC cross-country in Grafton, ND, aboard their ZR 6000R XC and ZR 4000RR race sleds. Team Green captured 32 of 51 podium positions, including four podium sweeps.

      For the second race in a row Zach Herfindahl proved the best of the best, winning the two-hour, 120-mile Pro Stock final on a wildly rough course. In addition, Herfindahl and teammate Wes Selby finished 2-3 in the Pro Open class.

        After the first two lake lemans events, snowmobile terrain racing returned this past weekend with the Grafton 100 in Grafton, ND.

        It was typical USXC cross country racing, with eight miles of tight river and 13 miles of rough ditch. The day started out with heavy, wet snow and poor visibility, with the sun coming out at noon. Drivers hadn’t seen this rough of a course for quite some time.

          A record number of entries were on hand on January 3rd for the second round of the 2014-15 United States X-Country (USXC) series.

          The day’s events started with a four lap final for the Pro Woman. With a 12 second lead over #496 Kelsey Pladson (Polaris), Jill Tangen (#4 Polaris) looked calm and collected down the straits and through the corners to the finish.

            As the 2014-2015 USXC cross-country season kicked off at the Gerald Dyrdahl Memorial Pine Lake event near Gonvick, Minn., Team Arctic captured 14 of 20 class wins and 36 of 50 podium finishes on production ZR6000R XC and ZR4000RR snowmobiles.

            The wins came in all categories and at all levels, starting with Zach Herfindahl’s victory in Pro Open. Herfindahl and teammate Wes Selby delivered strong performances in the thrilling 100-mile Pro Stock final, with Selby finishing second and Herfindahl in fourth, less than three seconds separating the top-four finishers. Dylan Stevens debuted in the Semi Pro Stock class and on Team Arctic with a win. And Lance Efteland delivered the ironman performance of the weekend, winning Semi Pro Improved, taking a close second to Stevens in Semi Pro Stock and then jumping into the Pro Stock class where he finished eighth.
