Team Arctic Tops Hay Days Podiums

Posted on September 26th, 2018 in Sledder Featured Article, Sledder News

Thief River Falls, Minn. (Sept. 26, 2018) – Team Arctic drag racers brought the victory heat to the 2018 Sno Baron’s NDRS Hay Days Grass Drags in North Branch, Minn., scorching the competition at the sport’s biggest stage with 10 class wins and 33 podium finishes. Team Green’s dominating performance included winning three of four Stock classes (two of which were podium sweeps) as well as the massively modified Outlaw and Lakeracer classes.

Craig Wyent and Jennifer O’Connor represented Team Green on the Hay Days drag strip.

Eight different Team Arctic racers stood atop the podium at Hay Days, with Randy Bernstein and Will Ohara each taking two wins. The other Team Green class winners included Dylan Roes, Craig Wyent, Kyle Shilts, Steve Brown, Jeff Labelle and Joe Schneider.

Arctic Cat snowmobiles once again proved to be the quickest in the Stock categories, with Bernstein leading a top-3 Team Green sweep of Stock 900 and Stock 800 finals.

“Our history of being the fastest and winning the most prestigious drag racing events continued at Hay Days this year,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “We have a lot of teams who work really hard to be their best at the premier events, which we truly appreciate. Plus we have some the fastest, most potent snowmobiles and engines for everything from the Stock classes up to the Lakeracer and Outlaw categories. Put it all together and we came out on top at the biggest event in the sport.”
