Press Release –
More To Go On – That’s Arctic Cat’s claim and that’s what the company will pay Arctic Cat ATV racers who finish on the podium at the 2007 Grand National Cross-Country (GNCC) and World Powersports association (WPSA) series’ races. Payouts include $1000 for first place, $500 for second and $200 for third in the Open 4×4 (GNCC) and QTC Pro Stock (WPSA) classes.
Arctic Cat is no stranger to racing, having dominated snowmobile race venues for more than four decades,” said Kale Wainer, Media Relations. “Now that we’ve showcased how competitive our stock ATVs are on the track, the company will take pleasure in rewarding our dedicated racers and teams with a lucrative contingency program.”
Arctic Cat already has a winning record in ATV competition. In its inaugural ATV racing effort during the 2006 World Powersports Association (WPSA) Quad Terrain Challenge, Arctic Cat captured the title championship with rider Daryl Rath aboard his 650 H1 4×4.
Rath proved the durability of a stock Arctic Cat ATV by conquering the brutal rocks, mud and logs aboard a stock ATV. Arctic Cat placed four racers in the top 8 spots and vowed to return in 2007 even stronger.
Now, three races into the 2007 GNCC series, factory Arctic Cat racer Jesse West launched himself from underdog to top dog aboard his stock 650 H1 4×4, thanks to two podium finishes, including a win at the season opener in Vero Beach, Fla.
Competing in the ultra-competitive 4×4 Open class for the first time in his young career against dozens of highly modified ATVs, West combined his win in Vero Beach with a third-place in Washington, Ga., and fifth-place in Morganton, N.C., to lead the series’ championship point chase.
