Fertile, MN (March 8, 2016) – During the summer Route 66 Raceway, located in the Chicago suburb of Joliet, Illinois, hosts the fastest straightline racers in the world on its quarter mile drag strip. In winter it embraces the fastest snocross racers in the world, and this past weekend it did just that, hosting the Hollywood Casino Snocross National March 4-5. CBR riders were challenged by one of the tightest, roughest tracks on the schedule so far.
Filling in for the remainder of the season for the injured (Doc / Arcticwear / Arctic Cat) rider Logan Christian, fellow Arctic Cat Pro Open competitor Jake Scott debuted for the team at Route 66 Raceway, piloting the injured Christian’s sled. Scott transferred to finals both days through the LCQ and back row starting positions did him no favors on the tight track. With 15 other riders battling it out it left little space for passing and moving up in the race order. Despite the tight racing, Scott finished Top 10 (8th) Saturday and 13th Friday.
Tyler Adams had a close call Friday night. An elbow injury led to a trip to the doctor and an X-Ray. Diagnosis? Broken elbow. But upon returning to Minnesota, Adams went in for a follow-up visit and it was found there was no fracture, he only had a deep bruise. Good news for the Pro Lite rider who is contending for a Top 10 spot in season points.
“I got lucky this weekend,” said Adams. “The doctor in Chicago thought my elbow was fractured but a second opinion determined it was only bruised. Still, I missed my first full day of racing in my 16-year career, but I feel blessed it wasn’t worse. I’ll be back ready to compete at the next race in Lake Geneva!”
Next up for Christian Brothers Racing is the Nielsen’s Snocross Grand Finale March 18-20 in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
