Hentges Racing had a successful weekend at the ISOC Amsoil Championship Snocross Series Vision Kia Eastern National. The double header was held at the Finger Lakes Casino and Racetrack in Farmington, New York. The drive across the country was well worth it. This race is home to local Pro favorites, both on the Hentges Racing team, Brett Bender #19 and TJ Gulla #44.
The fans in the stands talked about the Hentges Racing team with their top finishes throughout the weekend. Kody Kamm took the top spot on the podium both days in Pro Lite. Kamm continues to lead the point championship.
One of two local Pro racers, TJ Gulla came into this weekend with previous injuries and was determined to succeed in his attempt. After 15 years, this was said to be Gulla’s last stop here racing on the east coast as he pursues retirement from the National Series. His weekend ended during round two of Pro Open racing on Saturday, following a rough block pass. He is still within the top 10 in the Pro Open point chase.
Bill Rader, the long-time racing coordinator for the Polaris snowmobile race program passed away Monday, Feb. 20, 2012, after a courageous battle with cancer. Pro Rider on Hentges Racing, Brett Bender was riding in Radar’s honor and took home several top spots throughout the weekend.
Bender, as the crowd favorite and “home town boy”, said he enjoyed the extra pressure in racing in front of fans, friends and family. Friday he finished in 11th place in the Pro Open final. Saturday proved to be more of a success when he dominated the track with a win in round one, a second in round two and came out of the chaos with a solid 8th place finish in the last final race of the night.
The team partnered up with a New York based motorsports production and media company called The Rider Scope. They put their cameras to work shooting and interviewing everyone on the team. We are looking forward to seeing the videos and photos from this past weekend.
