2018 USXC Awards Banquet Postponed

usxclogonewsweb2018 USXC Awards Banquet Postponed

To all USXC Racers, Crew, and Family Members -
Due to the weather forecast of a pending large winter storm for this Friday, April 13, and Saturday, April 14, USXC Racing has chosen to POSTPONE the Year End Awards Banquet at this time. We are concerned about everyone’s safety and feel that, due to this inclement weather prediction, attendance would be shy. Thumper Pond is currently booked for the rest of April, so we will be in the process of searching for another date and/or possible venue to host at. 
Check back next week for more information.
Best regards,
USXC Racing

2018 USXC Awards Banquet Cancelled

2018 Naytahwaush 100 Is In The Books


The 2018 Naytahwaush 100 is in the books. As in the past the weather was above freezing which was a nice contrast to the 20 to 30 below we have endured this winter.  This year’s course, although the same length and design, was quite a bit different as it was run on natural conditions as there was too much snow to plow an ice track.  This proved to be a challenge for the riders as to figure out the best shock and spring package.

Some familiar names were on top again as Zach Herfindahl on his super-fast 600 mod ran away with the Pro Open final on Saturday. Sunday was a different story as Taylor Bunke won Pro Stock on his Polaris XCR. Taylor is a 3rd generation Polaris racer and the grandson of Jerry Bunke, the famous 1970’s Midnight Blue Express team driver. Taylor also won the Semi Pro-Pro challenge race. We congratulate Taylor on his first Pro Stock win.

In Semi Pro David Brown ruled and has become the man to beat in that class. David comes from a racing family as his dad and both brothers also race.

As the season ends it was another great year for USXC and cross-country racing. Entries were up approximately 15 to 20% with most of it being junior drivers that will be moving up in the years ahead.  Our 50% throttle rule created more opportunity for all brands of machines and reduced injuries. The I-500 was a success even though we were not able to start in Winnipeg. The junior ride along and ditch banger classes went over very well and introduced more snowmobilers to XC racing.  All classes of racing were very competitive this winter with no one brand or driver having an advantage.

USXC would like to thank all our sponsors for making the circuit possible. And all our great fans and participants who race with us and support us.

See you next year.

Brian Nelson & the USXC Crew.

2018 I-500 Race Results

The 2018 Christian Brothers Automotive Group I-500 Race Results are now available here on our website. It was an exciting weekend of racing! The cold temps and hard packed snow made for some rough riding and took a toll on some racers and their machines. Congratulations to Aaron Christensen for winning the Pro 600 class!

Welcome to USXC Racing

We are starting our 6th year, time sure flies. As everyone knows the snowmobile industry can be challenging, especially when you need mother nature to cooperate. It seems we must work around her schedule more than her around ours. USXC ran 7 events in 2017 with 7 more scheduled for the 2018 season. We were finally able to run the I 500 from Winnipeg down to Bemidji last year. That format worked excellent and will be almost the same course this year. We have added some classes to get more participation plus have a new title sponsor in the Christian Brothers Auto group.
I would like to thank the sponsors that make it possible for USXC to exist. The participants, their crews and family's for how good they are to work with. When I go up on the roof of the scoring trailer and look around the morning of a race and see hundreds of racers, their equipment and trailers, I say to myself “This makes it all worthwhile.” The manufacturers can test their products against each other, young racers learn how to compete and be competitive, learning skills they carry with them the rest of their lives. The thing we enjoy most is the family atmosphere. The parents, wives, families, etc. all working together to support their racers.
USXC is extremely fortunate to have a dedicated professional crew. It’s 3 to 4 days out of their lives for every event, they’re up early, many times working past 10:00 pm. When you see them at events, say thank you, a kind word goes along way. They are the reason our events run to perfection.
I have to thank our sponsors, without them there would be no circuit. Patronize them, tell them you're a USXC racer, many have special discounts for USXC members, such as Christian Bros. Auto group and Country Cat.
Finally, to all our participants, thank you for making USXC the premier XC circuit in the country. Thank you for being so good to work with and acting in a professional manner. Ride safe, ride smart, don't ride over your head. Let's get through the season with no major injuries.

Best Regards,

Brian Nelson
