Pine Lake - Post Race

     I would like to thank all the racers for doing an excellent job keeping the event safe. We didn’t have one EMT response, way to go. In the long run this keeps everyone’s insurance costs from going up. I would also like to thank everyone for acting professional and being on time for the heats. We also appreciate how our racers clean up after themselves when you leave the lake, it makes for a good impression on the local sponsors.
     A big Thank You to Chad Dyrdahl, Robert Johnson and Sharon Dyrdahl with 5 Star Promotions for raising the money to make the big purse. Not very many races pay $10,000 to win now days. Congratulations to all the winners, you earned every penny of it.
     It was a great way to start the season and hopefully it continues for the next 7 events. I would like to wish everyone a joyful Christmas Holiday and will see you in Park Rapids on the 18th.

Best Regards,
Brian Nelson

Pine Lake Race Starts Dec. 14th

           USXC racing series is ready to take on another year of bumper to bumper racing action in 2020. Last season, only 1 point separated Zach Herfindahl and Aaron Christensen from the Pro Factory 600 points championship, and it all started at the iconic Gerald Dyrdahl Pine Lake 200.

            Each season teams from all over the Midwest and even Canada travel to a little town in Northern Minnesota to race against the best in the business. The notorious Pine lake season opener is a race all cross-country competitors want to add to their win list. With $10,000 up for grabs, the competition is fearless with sleds reaching speeds over 100 mph. Some of the best names in the industry have claimed this title like Brian Dyrdahl, Corey Davidson, Zach Herfindahl, Gabe Bunke, and Ryan Simons. Last year Polaris riders swept the podium with Alex Hetteen claiming the victory and Gabe Bunke and Ryan Faust behind him.

            Some of the top contenders going into the weekend are 3x Pine Lake champion Zach Herfindahl, defending Pine Lake champion Alex Hetteen, consistent Pine Lake front runner Gabe Bunke, and 2014 champ Ryan Faust.

            All the action starts December 14th at 9:30 AM with riders of all ages competing. While you’re there you can grab a bite to eat at the Sportsman’s Lodge and come back on Sunday December 15th for even more action.
