Hibbert takes ACS Round One

Tucker Hibbert has been raving about the new ZR 6000R SX since first testing the proto build last spring. On Saturday night the new ride helped T-Train deliver a knockout counter-punch to Kody Kamm’s Dominator win on Friday, as he quickly moved to the front of the Pro final and went on to a four and a half second win. Kamm gave pursuit early and stayed close for the first half of the race before admitting to not having Hibbert’s pace and settling for the runner-up spot. Lincoln Lemieux was running down the front pair late in the going [...]

Season Opener from Duluth MN

The change from his traditional 53 was the talk of the pits during the day with most applauding the free-spirited Kamm’s willingness to enjoy the moment and ruffle some feathers at the same time. As soon as the Pro class took to the track for unique head-to-head AMSOIL Dominator elimination race that has become the normal Friday night kickoff in Duluth, Minnesota, [...]

Is your sled ready for next winter?

In the heat of the summer months, its hard to imagine there will be snow on the ground in 4-5 months. However, winter will come fast and it's always a good idea to be prepared and ready for the first ride of the new season. Here's a quick list we came up with to consider: Batteries removed from your avalanche beacon? Float packs properly stored? Sled being properly stored?...fogged cylinders, additive in fuel, block under the track, once over and checked critical steering components (loose tie rod ends and ball joints), racks, leaks, and damage needing repair. Only 168 days [...]

Summer is the time for Watercross Racing!

To most people, the sound of birds chirping, the warmth of the sun and clouds drifting by signifies the start of summer and an ideal day outdoors. For those of us who can't get enough snowmobiling throughtout the entire year, our ideal summer day includes the sun, but then takes a drastic turn at the sound part. The crackle of tuner pipes and open exhaust as competitors scream across the lake is the sweetest sound during the long summer days and we wouldn't want it any other way. If you haven't checked out the crazy and awesome sport of watercross [...]
