Team Arctic Conquers Mud Nationals
Team Arctic mud racers have come full circle since last season’s introduction of the Thundercat. That full circle ran around the competition all weekend at Mud Nationals, this time aboard the TRV 1000H2.
“I’m unbelievably proud of our Team Arctic racers and the dominating results they posted at the Daytona 500 of mud racing; Mud Nationals,” says Ted Bettin, Team Arctic ATV race coordinator.
“At the end of last season, Arctic Cat promised our racers we would work on the problems that plagued them. This year we came back with new racing set-ups in the TRV chassis, and they kicked some serious butt. With the help of the Arctic Cat built 1000 motor and a little more tuning, these TRVs will be unstoppable.”
Charles Touchet piloted his TRV 1000H2 to victory in the premier Open Class in the Mudda-Cross event. The next day, Touchet repeated with a second place podium in the Open Class of the Mud Bog race.
Teammate Charlie Neese found himself in the first place driver seat as he won the Pro Class aboard a similarly prepared TRV 1000H2.
Other notable performances were from Anthony Abrameit aboard his 650H1 in the Bogger Class of the Mud Bog race. Representing Arctic Cat dealer, Brazos Cycles in Richmond, Tex., Abrameit took third place.
