Team Blu Racing Wins Second-Straight Michigan Cat 500 Snowmobile Enduro

(MEDINA, Minnesota-February 23, 2015) – The Polaris snowmobile enduro racing team of James Hicks and Cardell Potter – Team Blu Racing – outran the competition and won the Michigan Cat 500 race at Lincoln, Michigan, on Saturday, Feb. 21. The Team Blu drivers had their sled out in front when the race scheduled for 500 laps was called after 357 laps due to darkness. It was their second straight win in the annual enduro at Lincoln.

Like the Soo I-500 and all the enduro races on the Midwest International Racing Assn. (MIRA) circuit, Polaris sleds dominated the field at Lincoln, and 15 of the top 20 finishers at Lincoln were on Polaris sleds.

The R&R Racing team of Josh Ware and Jon Giffel finished third at Lincoln, and other Polaris teams in the top 10 were: 4. Beard Motorsports; 5. XLT Performance; 6. Wuppet Racing; 7. Piche Performance; 8. Bunke Racing (sled No. 74); and 10. Yovich Racing.

With its win, Team Blu finished second in the No Bull Triple Crown, a bonus purse program based on three of this season’s snowmobile enduro races. Hicks and Potter had finished second in the Kinross (Michigan) Enduro and sixth in the Soo I-500, so the Lincoln win earned them second-place money in the Triple Crown competition.

The No. 74 Bunke Racing sled piloted by Gabe Bunke and Aaron Christensen finished third in No Bull Triple Crown points. The Bunke team won at Kinross and finished third in the Soo I-500 before finishing eighth at Lincoln.
