    Zach Herfindahl Grafton 100

    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.

      Zach Herfindahl USXC

      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.

          Planning eight events over three months is one thing, seeing them all come true is another. When the first green flag dropped at Pine Lake, near Gonvick, Minn., December 14, who knew racers would have the opportunity to compete throughout an entire season of racing action. Eight events, eight venues, and eight Minnesota cities. Truly special.

          The recurring theme all winter was the brutal weather facing racers, crews, and fans, that is, until the final race of the year in Walker, Minn. No one in the United States seemed to be immune to harsh winter conditions in 2013-2014. As a result, it was hard to get anyone to feel sorry for USXC competitors. As always, though, the cross country racers endured below zero temps and storm laden driving conditions to and from the races to rock the courses at break-neck pace.

            As the 2014 USXC season came to a close, Polaris racers dialed it up a notch. Saturday’s Moondance Jam 100 was a rough, technical race that saw Polaris riders Aaron Christensen, Justin Tate, Ryan Faust, and Spencer Kadlec finish 1-2-3-4 in the Yamaha Pro Stock final.

            The win for Christensen wasn’t quite enough to grab the point title in Pro Stock, with leader Zach Herfindahl (Arctic Cat) needing only to finish, even with a broken hand. Christensen did close out a season points win in the Speedwerx Pro Open class.
