2014 J&K Beach Bar 200 in Detroit Lakes, MN Set forJanuary 4

Spicer, MN (December 30, 2013) – Mention “D.L.” to most Minnesotans and they will instantly know where you’re talking about. While Detroit Lakes, MN is a world renown summer hot-spot; with its scenic beaches and iconic landmarks; this weekend it will be home to some red hot competition on the cold hard ice. USXC Racing rolls into the second round of its schedule with the J&K Beach Bar 200 this Saturday, January 4, sponsored by J&K Marine-Detroit Lakes, www.jkmarine.com and the Holiday Inn on the Lake in Detroit Lakes,www.holidayinndl.com.

Coming off of the frigid below zero temps at the Pine Lake race a few weeks ago, the forecast for Detroit Lakes looks relatively tropical, with highs Saturdaynearing 20 above. No matter the temperature, racers will have their equipment in top form in time for the green flag to drop.

Christian Brothers Racing’s Zach Herfindahl will be back to see if he can continue the momentum gained from a big Yamaha Pro Stock class win at Pine Lake aboard his Arctic Cat. Polaris veteran Gabe Bunke will also look to repeat in the Speedwerx Pro Open class, while keeping the Yamaha Pro Stock checkers in his crosshairs. Arctic Cat’s Brian Dick, Polaris’ Aaron Christensen, Ski-Doo’s Ross Erdman, and Yamaha’s Corey Davidson are just some of the veteran competition facing any pro driver looking to fill their trophy case at the J&K Beach Bar 200 Saturday.

The Detroit Lakes course will be a 10 mile lemans style track with left and right-hand turns along with white knuckle straights sure to challenge engine and clutch setups. Racing will take place in front of race sponsor Holiday Inn on the Lake right off of Highway 10 on the east side of Detroit Lakes, MN. Classes are available for all skill levels and spectators are welcome; more information can be found on usxcracing.com. In addition, Holiday Inn on the Lake will air the live broadcast of the race in their bar area.

After the J&K Beach Bar 200, up next is the Willmar Area Lakes 100 in Willmar, MN on January 18.
