St. Cloud, MN December 11, 2011 – Warnert Racing rolled into the Blackjack National on Friday evening with all riders ready to go!
Day 1 started off great, with all the riders putting in fantastic qualifying efforts. Locking them all into positions for the final. The Pro-lite final kicked off the evening’s excitement. With an aggressive left to right starting line that was eating up riders all day. We knew it was going to be an exciting one to watch. Travis got a great jump off the ling, but then was pushed far outside where he caught someone’s ski. This caused him to flip over, ending his chase for the night. In Pro-open all three Warnert Racing Ski-doo’s where able to get great starts and finish in the top ten. Justin charged hard to ride his way to 8th, while Emil was just a couple spots off the box finishing 6th. Tim was running 2nd when an Ice ridge almost swallowed him up, causing his sled to catapult on its side. Tim was able to muscle his machine back over and finish off the night with a well-deserved 3rd.
Hard riding pays off in Day 2 of the Blackjack National. Travis attacked the track right away coming out the back row in the Pro-lite final, on his #436 NSK Ski-doo. He was able push his way through the stacked field of talent, up to 3rd place when the checkered flags flew! With teammate Justin Broberg having an unfortunate tangle in the LCQ, Emil and Tim where put on the hunt for the number One spot in Pro-Open final. Emil was putting a great ride in, when an unfavorable incident ended his race dropping him to 14th. Tim was able to keep his consistency toward the front. Pulling off a solid 4th place finish and locking up 3rd place in the point’s standings as we prepare for round 3 of the ISOC National Tour.
