Shakopee, Minnesota (July 2, 2015) – Hentges Racing is pleased to announce that reigning Swedish Super Snowcross Pro Open champion Petter Narsa has joined the team and will be returning to the U.S. to compete in the AMSOIL Championship Snocross series.

“I am really excited to bring Petter into our trailer,” said team owner Nate Hentges. “It will be great to have him and Kody as teammates pushing each other on the practice track every day making the entire team better! I am looking forward to an extremely fun season with a ton of podium potential every race!”

Narsa has multiple ISOC Pro Open podiums to his credit, having raced in the series for part of 2013 and all of 2014. Last winter the likable young racer from Alvsbyn, Sweden stayed home where he captured his third Senior Snowcross championship to go with his two Swedish Stadiumcross titles. In addition, Narsa is a perennial contender at Europe’s World Championship and Clash of Nations.

“I’m super excited to be a part of the Hentges Racing family, and to be back in the ISOC series,” said Narsa. “When team Hentges called me I knew right away that this is what I wanted to do, it was like a dream came true. I’m thankful to have this opportunity to race for such a high-level team with the best equipment in the business. I’m really looking forward to a new racing season and I hope we can reach the top step this winter.”

In addition to his new colors this season, Narsa will be sporting the number 5, a departure from the familiar 271 he wore during his previous years in the U.S.
