For Immediate Release:
January 12, 2011 – (Clinton Twp., MI) Team Arctic Pro Am Women Racer Megan Campbell and the Peer Pressure Racing Team travelled to the spectacular Canterbury Park in Shakopee, MN for the ACSS Traxxas National. Round 3 of the ’11-’12 Snocross Season . The team made the trip to Minnesota to greet fans, support our fellow racers and get a healthy dose of race gas and 2-stroke fumes. Megan had to miss the Blackjack National in Bessemer due to her arm injury she suffered at the Duluth season opener. In her words: “It was terrible sitting home and watching the action on the computer. I had to get back to the track, even if I couldn’t race.” Megan had a good time watching racing, meeting with racers and fans and participate in the pro autograph session.
While at the track on Friday, Megan was able to meet, Ceaja Philip, a writer with Midwest Wheels of Thunder Magazine. Ceaja wrote an article on Megan for the magazines, “Women of Wheels” (WOW) section. Megan is the first woman snowmobile racer to be featured. Megan’s story is in the Jan. /Feb. 2012 issue, which just came from print on Friday so we were able to get a copy while at the track. Be sure to get your copy wherever the magazine is sold near you. A big thank you to Ceaja and the Wheels of Thunder staff, for a great story and magazine.
Megan saw her orthopedic doctor on January 11th for an update. The Doctor says that her arm is healing well and said there is an outside chance she “may” be able to return to riding in time for Pontiac. He said if not Pontiac, then the last 3 races of the season look promising at this point. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that she will be healthy enough to return. The last thing we want is to re-injure the arm.
The Doctor has started Megan in Physical Therapy for her arm and she has been hitting the gym for lots of cardio.
The team plans to attend the Vision Kia Eastern National in Farmington NY next, followed by the Michigan National at the Pontiac Silverdome. The Pontiac race will be a hometown event for us as it is only about a 20-25 minute ride from home. We encourage everyone to come out and enjoy some world class racing at these upcoming events.
