Polaris RUSH® Snowmobiles Built on New AXYS™ Platform Dominate Pro Stock Class in USXC Cross-Country Racing
MEDINA, Minn. (Jan. 5, 2015) – The Polaris® AXYS™ platform is making a dramatic impact in cross-country snowmobile racing this season on the United States X-Country Snowmobile Racing (USXC) circuit. In USXC racing on Jan. 3 at Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, Polaris racers on RUSH® models built on this innovative chassis finished 2-3 in the Pro Stock race, and six of the race’s top eight finishers were on RUSH sleds. In the Pro Open race, five of the top 10 finishers were Polaris racers on RUSH models.
In the USXC points standings, six of the top seven racers in Pro Stock points are on RUSH sleds built on the AXYS platform, as are four of the top 10 drivers in Pro Open points.
“The power-to-weight ratio of the new RUSH built on the AXYS platform has given us an advantage over the competition,” said Polaris Racing Manager Tom Rager, Jr. “The reduced weight not only helps with the handling, but also gives us improved acceleration and top speed.
PRO CLASSES: AXYS Riders Dominate the Standings
In the Pro Stock race at Detroit Lakes, Gabe Bunke (Bunke Racing) took second and Ryan Faust (Faust Racing) finished third. Justin Tate (2-Eight Motorsports) was fourth, Spencer Kadlec (Bunke Racing) was sixth, Travis Faust (Faust Racing) was seventh, and Bobby Menne (131 Racing) finished eighth. Ryan Faust left Detroit Lakes as the leader in Pro Stock points, followed by these Polaris racers in third through seventh place: Bunke, Tate, Travis Faust, Kadlec, and Menne.
In both Pro classes, every Polaris racer is on a RUSH model built on the new AXYS platform, which is making its debut in cross-country racing this winter.
In the Pro Open race, five Polaris racers ran in the top 10, led by Nicholas Jahnke in fifth, Ryan Faust in sixth, Travis Faust in seventh, Tate in ninth, and Kadlec in 10th. Ryan Faust is currently fourth in Pro Open points, Travis Faust is fifth, Jahnke is sixth, and Tate is in seventh.
SEMI-PRO: Polaris Earns 3 of 6 Podium Spots
Polaris racers Alex Hetteen (131 Racing), Grant Weber (Faust Racing), and Taylor Bunke (Bunke Racing) all earned podium spots with strong finishes in the Semi-Pro races. Hetteen finished third in the Semi-Pro 600 and is currently third in class points, while Bunke is seventh in points.
In the Semi-Pro Improved race, Weber finished second, Bunke took third, and Hetteen finished ninth. In the points standings, Weber is second, Bunke is third, and Hetteen is in eighth.
Grant Weber led a 1-2-3 Polaris sweep as he won the Sport Open race. While Weber took the checkered flag, Jason Cleasby finished second and Robert Loire took third. Jeff Hayford was seventh and Michael Feigitsch finished eighth.
In the Sport 600 race, Loire finished second, Hayford was sixth, Daniel Herberg was seventh, and Kelsey Pladson (Bunke Racing) took eighth. Loire left Detroit Lakes as the points leader in both Sport 600 and Sport Open. Pladson is third in Sport 600 points and Herberg is fourth.

Team Green Wins More with Victory in 14 of 20 classes and 36 of 50 Podium Places
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thief River Falls, Minn. (Dec. 22, 2014) – As the 2014-2015 USXC cross-country season kicked off at the Gerald Dyrdahl Memorial Pine Lake event near Gonvick, Minn., it was the hard working and talented Team Arctic crew who were doing the kicking. The results left painful imprints on the competitions’ back ends as Team Green captured 14 of 20 class wins and 36 of 50 podium finishes on production ZR6000R XC and ZR4000RR snowmobiles with EFI engines, proving again that Arctic Cat wins more.
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!
Other Team Arctic class winners at Pine Lake included Chad Dyrdahl, Jeremy Grove, Mason Kallock, Marty Feil, Hunter Houle, Ean Voigt, Keaton Black, Sara Larson, Savannah Landrus and Tyler Knutson. In addition to claiming the lion’s share of podium places, Team Arctic racers swept the podium in five classes at Pine Lake.
“We’re thrilled to win 70 percent of the finals and the podium places,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “The first race of any season requires a huge effort on the part of our racers and crews to set up and dial-in their snowmobiles. Especially for first-year sleds like the new ZR6000R XC with the 600 C-TEC2 engine and the new ZR4000RR in the ProCross chassis. We have some more work to do to help all of our racers better learn about these sleds, but earning 11 class wins with these new machines is a great start.”
The next stop on the 2015 USXC cross-country schedule is Jan. 3, 2015, in Detroit Lakes, MN.
