Shakopee, Minn. (Jan. 6, 2014) – Hentges Racing wins big with two podium finishes in front of their hometown fans at the Canterbury Traxxas Snocross in Shakopee, Minn., during rounds five and six of 2013-14’ AMSOIL Championship Snocross. Continuing the momentum from previous ACS races and pushing through the subzero temperatures, Polaris/Pirtek/FXR Racing riders Kody Kamm and Justin Broberg remain consistent and strong against the competition.
“The cold wasn’t too bad this past weekend. We are used to it. Racing in front of the hometown crowd though is always the best. It really gets us excited to put on a great show for the fans and to make it up on top of the podium,” said Kamm.
The chase for the championship continues as Kamm moves up one position to 2nd place; down a mere 53 points behind the defending champion and current point leader Tucker Hibbert. With about half the season remaining, the chance for Kamm to achieve his first Pro Open championship looks strong.
“The New Year has started out really well for me. I left Shakopee with both 2nd and 3rd place finishes. I couldn’t be happier to stand on the podium in front of the hometown crowd. I’m sitting 2nd in points and I feel awesome about the rest of the season. With X Games up next, my goal is to definitely get a gold medal for the team,” said Kamm.
Justin Broberg, a seasoned veteran of the sport, continues to be a consistent performer for team Hentges. Posting 2nd place for his best finish of the weekend during qualifying on Friday, Broberg would start the first main event near the front but an immediate error on the first lap caused him to drop back and fight for a 9th place finish. On Saturday after some set-up changes, Broberg took 2nd in the LCQ, qualifying in the back row and finishing 6th in the final. Once again showing that he has what it takes to deliver the goods, he has moved up one position in the Pro Open point standings to 6th place.
“The hometown race was a little rough for me but I ended on a good note with a 6th in the last final. Every race, every position and every point counts now until the end. I know I’ve been consistent, however the results are not what I want and I’m working to change that. I’ve had a couple mechanical issues this season and a black flag in Duluth, and that set me back a bit. It is all in the past and I’m going into X Games fresh, and I’m super pumped about it,” said Broberg.
Hentges Racing fields two of the elite Snocross racers in the world and they continue to show that they are in a position to dominate this year.
