The annual kick-off to winter also proved to be success for Arctic Cat at the Sno-Baron’s Hay Days grass drags.

In the capable hands of Team Arctic’s Glenn Hall of Gordon, Wis., and Scott Moser of Lowville, N.Y., Arctic Cat’s new CFR 800 earned wins in both the Stock 800 and Open Stock classes at the famed summer event in Forest Lake, Minn.

“We built the CFR 800 to continue the Arctic Cat tradition of being the quickest, fastest and most potent snowmobiles in the sport,” says Mike Kloety, Team Arctic race manager. “Finishing one-two in Open Stock and crushing Stock 800 at Hay Days made that fact perfectly clear to the thousands of spectators who witnessed the wins.”

The victories help show the type of power produced by the new 800 H.O. engine. Pumping out 160-hp with a 4.3-lb. lighter crankshaft that revs quicker, the 800 H.O. can be found in the 2010 CFR 800, F8, Crossfire 8 and M8 models.

In addition to the victories by Hall and Moser, Jamie Edwards led a Team Arctic sweep of the Stock 700 class.

“It’s always good for the team to do well at Hay Days,” says Al Shimpa, Team Arctic drag racing coordinator. “It’s the biggest drag race of the season, and they all worked very hard to be at their best, especially with limited time aboard the new CFR 800. This sled is going to get even better throughout the season.”
