FARMINGTON, N.Y. – Jan. 24, 2012 – The world’s top professional snowmobile racers – including world-renown action sports stars Tucker Hibbert, along with locals Brett Bender (Boston, NY) and Vermont’s TJ Gulla – converge on Farmington’s Finger Lakes Casino and Racetrack, Feb. 3-4, when the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series (ACSS) stops for rounds 7 & 8 – The Vision Kia Eastern National – of the 2011-’12 tour. This is the state of New York’s only opportunity of 2012 to see high speed/big air motocross-style snowmobile racing right down I-90 from Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse!
Tickets start at just $25 ($10 for kids) and are available at the gate or online at www.fingerlakessnocross and snocross.com
Not only does ACSS racing at Finger Lakes showcase the best pro racers, fans will also get to see the top amateur kids and women racers – many of whom are from New York. Watch two full days of great racing in front of Finger Lakes’ comfortable indoor stadium seating setting, featuring all of the amenities associated with a professional racing circuit – right in the middle of the New York winter!
Boston, NY’s Bender and his Hentges/Polaris-mounted teammate Gulla will no doubt figure in the overall premier Pro Open main event. Bender is the 2009-’10 ACSS Rookie of the Year and Gulla is considered by many to be one of the top snocross racers of all time having won three ACSS overall championships and two Winter X Games medals, including gold in 2003. Challenging the two Finger Lakes locals will be Hibbert (Monster Energy/Arctic Cat) – the most successful professional snocross racer in the history of the sport. Hibbert, 27, is the defending and six-time AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series overall champion, the 2010 FIM World Snocross champion and five-time defending Winter X Games Snocross gold medalist.
Add to the mix Ski-Doo/AMSOIL racer Robbie Malinoski, who won the 2011-’12 ACSS open round in Duluth, Minn., and Polaris/Jack Links/DuPont racer Ross Martin – who won at the last ACSS round in Ironwood, Mich., and the table is set for what should prove to be another weekend of incredible racing action at upstate New York’s premier horse racing facility!
In addition to the great racing, Finger Lakes will host a number of the industry’s top freestyle snowmobilers, jumping and performing tricks – including an awe-inspiring back flip on a snowmobile – during the evening racing show. ISOC Freestyle, fueled by Monster Energy.
