Herfindahl Sweeps Pro Classes at USXC Seven Clans Thief River Falls 250January 26, 2016Fertile, MN (January 26, 2016) - Christian Brothers Racing cross-country riders competed on home turf this past weekend, January 24-25, at the USXC Seven Clans Thief River Falls 250. Thief River Falls is home to Arctic Cat snowmobiles, the very same snowmobiles that power the team to victory every race weekend. Staged out of Seven Clans casino, the two-day event brought riders on a course that traversed some of the same ground the prestigious I-500 has used over the past decade. Riders made a loop to the town of Goodridge on Day 1, and on Day 2 headed for Plummer and Oklee, racing mainly road ditches both days. And, in a break from the past two race weekend, temperatures were mild, hitting mid-20s both days.
JOANIS, CHRISTIAN CAPITALIZE AT DEADWOOD SNOCROSSJanuary 25, 2016Fertile, MN (January 25, 2016) - Once the wildest of wild west towns, Deadwood, South Dakota, got wild again this past weekend, January 22-23, when it hosted the U.S. Air Force Deadwood Snocross. Held on the Days of '76 Rodeo Grounds, Deadwood marked the fourth stop on the national tour schedule and the mid-point of the season. Warm temperatures resulted in a rough track and wet snow roost that coated the goggles of riders caught in the pack. Christian Brothers Racing riders Logan Christian, Dave Joanis and Tyler Adams were looking to put in strong performances and score maximum points and were successful on both count.
Herfindahl Sweeps Pro Classes At Grafton 100January 19, 2016Fertile, MN (January 19, 2016) - The USXC Grafton 100 held in Grafton, North Dakota, is a perennial racer favorite that challenges riders with its varied terrain that includes river, ditch, field and woods. Just like at Devils Lake the weekend before, a second wave of sub-zero arctic air swept over northern Minnesota just in time for this past weekend?s race, adding freezing temperatures to the list of obstacles competitors would have to overcome. It also marked the second weekend in a row Christian Brothers Racing riders would top the time charts, with Zach Herfindahl leading the charge with two wins and a Pro class sweep.-
