Duluth National Snocross Race November 2007

The Duluth National Snocross Race on November 23 – 25, 2007, put Polaris snowmobiles and their drivers at the top–of the hill, and the World Power Sports Racing points for the 2007 – 2008 snowmobile racing season.

In the WPSA top classes–Pro Open and Pro Super Stock–13 of the top 20 placings went to Polaris (Ross Martin, Levi LaVallee, Dennis Eckstrom, Mike Shultz, TJ Gulla, Matt Judnick and Sean Crapo). Arctic Cat took three of the ten spots in Pro Open, with Tucker Hibbert grabbing first place in every heat and the final, on his return to snocross. Indeed, the Pro Open top ten placings shut out Ski-Doo altogether, as Blair Morgan and Robbie Malinoski (first year on Ski-Doo after a year with Yamaha) came in 11th and 12th. The two Yamaha sleds placed below the top fifteen point earning positions.

Ski-Doo fared a little better in Pro Super Stock, where Morgan captured 7th and Malinoski 9th. However, it was Polaris 1st through 5th, with Tucker Hibbert landing the 6th spot, and Arctic Cat in 8th and another Polaris in 10th.

Early race results look like Polaris is in for another top year after coming out victorious in the 2006 – 2007 season. Pro Open high points for 2006 – 2007 went to Polaris drivers in three of the top five positions: Ross Martin (1), TJ Gulla (3), and Levi LaVallee (4). In that season Arctic Cat driver, Ryan Simons took second, and Blair Morgan took fifth with Ski-Doo.

The 2006 – 2007 Pro Stock National year-end honors went to TJ Gulla on Polaris, with Polaris drivers Mike Shultz and Ross Martin in fourth and fifth. Second for last year went to Ryan Simons with his Arctic Cat and Blair Morgan took third for Ski-Doo.
