Dec. 11, 2012 – Lake Nebagamon, WI
The Blackjack Ski Resort racetrack in Bessemer, MI was an outstanding venue! It was equipped with major air and a brutal “dirty dozen” downhill section making for excellent technical racing. Friday night Ross Martin had a good start off the line in the Pro Final and was in podium position when contact sent him off the track down into a deep ravine. Ross was able to stay on his sled and found his way back to the track… then in last place. With his “it’s never over til it’s over attitude” he dug deep fighting his way back to a 6th place finish.
Saturday Ross brought home a 2nd place podium in the Pro Final. He came off the line in great shape, secured 2nd in lap two and ran solid until the checkered.
“I have to thank my awesome sponsors and our incredible team who worked until 4am making sure the sled was ready for Saturday and it paid off. I am glad to be back on the podium again!” said Ross Martin.
James Johnstad had an exciting friday night in the talented Pro Lite Division. He ran an excellent race, battled hard taking home a 2nd place podium and a 5th on Saturday. Great Job James!
“Bessemer was bittersweet for all of us as this is the last race we will see outstanding Race Director Tom Rager Sr at before his retirement. We wish him only the best and we will miss him. However I have no doubt he will be live Ustreaming us from retirement. Thanks for everything Tom!” Scott Judnick
