Shakopee, Minnesota (March 5, 2012)-Hentges Racing had another successful weekend at the ISOC Amsoil Championship Snocross Series Fargo Tractor National. The double header was held March 2-3rd at the Buffalo River Race Park near Fargo, North Dakota.
Saturday night the stands were filled with dedicated, die-hard snowmobile enthusiasts who were used to the cold weather Fargo is known for. The track this weekend was one of rider favorites this season. It was technical, long and lap times were over 40 seconds.
Nothing seems to slow down Hentges Racing champion Kody Kamm who took the top spot on the podium once again both days in Pro Lite. Kamm continues to lead the point championship.
“I didn’t lap anyone this time,” said Kamm after his win on Saturday. He sticks with the strategy he knows best of “trying to get the holeshot and then finding smooth lines”. Kamm shows incredible talent and the competition has noticed. He seems to be unbeatable.
The competition got the best of injured Pro rider TJ Gulla in the second round on Saturday. He has been struggling with sore ribs for much of this season and frustrated with not being able to do the things he wants to do out there.
“It is just extremely frustrating when you put all this work in and then somebody else takes it away from you,” said Gulla.
Gulla had great starts all weekend. He plans to continue racing the remaining of the season. He announced his retirement earlier this season and his not ready to end it sooner than planned.
Brett Bender and the black mod caught attention this weekend with successful in qualifying with two 2nd place finishes on Saturday. He led races all weekend and proved to be top competition coming into the finals. Bender took a 7th in finals on Friday and a 9th on Saturday. He moved up to 9th position in the National points.
Bender said he is “not done yet” and ready to for the rest of the season.
