Bauerly, a rising star in the International Series of Champions national snocross tour, finished in the top five in year-end points in both Semi-Pro Super Stock and Semi-Pro Open last season. Now Bauerly will join Andrew Carlson (Semi-Pro) and Taylor Carlson (Pro-Women) in the Team Sportech/Arctic Cat race hauler this winter, as the team plans to campaign the full national tour, as well as select Minnesota regional events.
“This is great move for everyone involved and we are thrilled to have him (Paul) on our team,” says team owner Chris Carlson. “Paul is a class act, is a good fit for our team and he’s a proven performer. I’m excited to get him on an Arctic Cat Sno Pro. I think he’s going to surprise a few people this season. Paul’s a guy who is committed to excellence in all that he does.”
Team Sportech is coming off a season that was filled with podiums and incredible highs. Both Taylor and Andrew Carlson put themselves on the podium several times; with Andrew earning a pair of national podium finishes during the ISOC Hayward National near the close of the season.
“I’m real excited for this opportunity,” says Bauerly. “Chris and his organization represent the perfect scenario for me. They are dedicated to professionalism and their team really does feel like an extended family for me.”
“I want Sportech Racing to be more than just another snocross team,” says Carlson. “This started out as a way for my family to enjoy winter and spend time together doing what we love. We’ve built our team with the same value system that we have used to build our business and raise our family. We bring the highest level of competitiveness to the track every day, and to our sponsors, we bring a unique value proposition that enables them to see us as a collaborative partner that they can be proud to be affiliated with.”
With the addition of a Bauerly to the Sportech fold, the return of a seasoned crew of veterans behind the scenes, and an Arctic Cat Sno Pro race sled that proved to be the machine to beat on the track last winter – Team Sportech expects continued growth and even better results in the near future.
